Kentucky vs. Florida Twitter reactions

It was fun, until it wasn’t.

It’s fair to say that even the most optimistic Kentucky football fan didn’t have extremely high hopes entering Saturday’s matchup with #6 Florida.

The Cats traveled to Gainesville with a depleted roster and haven’t showed many recent signs of being capable of beating a top-10 team on the road.

The massive 24-point spread said about all that needed to be said in relation to the experts faith in Kentucky’s chances at pulling off the huge upset.

Despite the odds stacked heavily against them, UK came out ready to play and gave the Gators all they wanted in the first half. Had it not been for a horrific special teams blunder, the Cats would have impressively taken a halftime lead into the locker room.

Instead, it was an all too familiar story of Kentucky football not taking advantage of early opportunities against good teams and it ultimately costing them the game.

Third quarter penalties and overall uninspired second half play destroyed any chance that Mark Stoops’ team had to pick up their fourth win of the season.

The Gators would go on to punish Kentucky for the remainder of the game before winning the game by a score of 34-10, which really isn't a fair indicator of just how lopsided the contest was.

With the highs of the first quarter followed by the lackluster performance provided some great real time Twitter reactions.
