Twitter reactions to Kentucky’s bowl switcheroo

It was a wild ride on Sunday waiting for the final word.

Belk Bowl

Early on Sunday, everyone had pretty much universally accepted the fact that Kentucky was heading to the Gator Bowl in Jacksonville (FL) vs. the Indiana Hoosiers.

But later in the afternoon, rumblings began to surface that Tennessee was pushing back on the SEC and asking for the Gator Bowl invite for themselves. It sounds like Tennessee athletics director Phil Fulmer was the driving force behind this.

So in an unbelievable turn of events, Kentucky was sent to the Belk Bowl instead. The Cats will now take on the Virginia Tech Hokies at 12:00 pm EST on December 31st in Charlotte (NC) on ESPN.

This will be the final game for two legends, as Lynn Bowden will look like to lead Kentucky to one more win before he likely heads to the NFL Draft, while long-time Hokies defensive coordinator Bud Foster will call his final game before heading into retirement.

Needless to say there was some strong opinions floating around on Twitter after the formal announcement was made. Here are some of the best reactions.
