Kentucky Wildcats: Morning Quickies - Florida Gators Edition

The time has come for our biannual pilgrimage to Gainesville, Florida, home of the Florida Gators and the appropriately named "Swamp." Kind of reminds me of a song set in Louisiana, but apropos to the Sunshine State as well:

Well the Sheriff got wind that Amos
Was in the swamp tracking alligator skin.
So he snuck in the swamp, gonna get the boy,
But he never come out again. -- Amos Moses by Jerry Reed

I fear that's what's going to happen to our football team tomorrow.

Tweet of the Morning:

Thanks for picking us up, Coach.

Your quickies follow the jump.

The last time Kentucky beat Florida, stonewashed jeans and Members Only jackets were still in fashion. The Wildcats won a 10-3 defensive struggle over the Gators at home in 1986. Florida has won 25 straight since.

* Sigh *.
