Vaught’s note: David White is a long-time — and logical — UK fan who is frustrated and heartbroken today. Enjoy his vent — because he knew Mark Buerger would not give him enough time on WLAP (630 AM) this morning to share it all.

Listening to you guys on WLAP this morning. ..it’s still frustrating this morning…
I’ve said it before, Kentucky fans are like Charlie Brown trying to kick the football. We’re gullible enough to believe we are going to reach our goal this time, but once again, Lucy (UF, fill in your favorite heartbreak) pulls the ball away and we end up on our butts again!
Despite the unforgivable gaffs with leaving guys completely uncovered TWICE (both times after time outs!!), I think this game was lost when we went 3 and out after an interception. That was a huge momentum swing in our favor. We had the chance to bury UF, and maintain 60,000 fans in a frenzy. Instead, we spinelessly hand the ball off and have a gutless three plays. Throw it deep there for goodness sakes!
Instead we settle for a field goal. I noted the score at that point 27-14, did the math, and realized then we would lose 28-27.
Left too many points unscored. How many bad snaps do we need to have to replace a center with the yips? In his defense, the snaps were better, but it took, what – 5 or 6 before it got corrected.
Game seemed to be too intense for our coaches. ..it’s not like there’s a genius on the other sideline. Sad — what a lost opportunity.
Guessing tickets will be a lot easier to find next week.
How long before we find ourselves running toward Lucy holding the ball again? It’s gonna be a long time for me.
Thanks for letting me vent..
