Kentucky 14 @ #9 Florida 48:  Postmortem

Locke was a non-factor versus the Gators.

This is going to be very brief, because quite frankly, I am in no mood to say much.

Congratulations to Florida.  For the 24th straight time, they proved that they are a much better football program.  Urban Meyer seems to have a mole inside Kentucky, because he always seems to know exactly what to do to make the Wildcats look like a high school team.  Joker Phillips, Rich Brooks, it doesn't matter.  Meyer owns Kentucky.  We have never been competitive against the Gators with him at the helm, and tonight was just one more in a growing line of embarrassments at the hands of Meyer and the Gators. 

I know that analysis stinks, but folks, it is real.  Let's just suck it up and move on.

Florida utterly dominated us on offense and defense.  That's all the analysis needed there.  The Wildcats came into this game with a deer-in-the-headlights look, and left with knots all over their head.  A true freshman named Burton scored six touchdowns on UK.  This is a kid who is just out of high school, and he treated our defense like it was what he was used to facing six or eight months ago.  Again, not a pleasant bit of analysis, but it is real.

I don't want to talk about Chris Matthews big night, or the weird officiating (which was utterly irrelevant to the outcome), or the fact that Kentucky's defense tried but failed to keep the game competitive.  The reality is, this is a team game, and if the offense can't stay on the field for more than three plays, or keeps turning the ball over, the defense will get tired and the game will get out of hand.

Right now, I want to lick my wounds.  They hurt.  I'm tired of losing to Florida, but the Wildcats were never in this football game after halftime.  I hate that, but it is real. 

And that is all.  More tomorrow after I've had time to recover from my damaged pride and dashed hopes.
