Kentucky 13 at Tennessee 33: Second Half Game Thread

The only thing to be done is to forget the first half and hope for a competitive second.

Well, that half of football was comprehensively bad for Kentucky. Tennessee moved the ball on the Wildcats like they were Georgia, and the Wildcats had all kinds of problems from injuries to Patrick Towles to an inexplicably horrible game by Landon Foster, who can’t seem to kick it out of his shadow today.

The good news is that Kentucky got Towles back and he put up ten points at the end of the half. They still sit in a 20-point hole, and honestly, if Kentucky comes back to win this one, it would have to go down as one of the greatest road comebacks in memory, maybe ever.

While that seems entirely unlikely, the second half must be played. Who knows, maybe the Buffalo Wild Wings fans will come on and blow Tennessee off the football field, forcing them to forfeit the game. It could happen.

Anyway, enjoy the second half. We have to remember who we are, where we came from and how far we had to go. No, that doesn’t excuse the prostrate first half by Kentucky, but it doesn’t do any good to hate on a team that lacks depth, lacks experience and seems to be struggling to execute even the most basic football plays.
