Good to get back in the win column. Had to get back there. Some UK fans, especially those in the Louisville area, would have become even more insufferable than they already were.
You know the ones, many of them born and raised here, their team having been selected for them before they were conceived.
They weren’t talking much Sunday, trying to act as if it were just another day. As if their reason for being hadn’t been thumped by the University of Louisville football team. The same ones so confident the day before that UK would deliver a fifth consecutive win, something they desperately needed to reaffirm their superiority.
Sorry, friends, associates and next door neighbors, you can put the blue away for a while. Not that they need to be told, of course, because that’s what they always do after a loss to Louisville, quickly fading into the woodwork.
Don’t feel sorry for them. They’ll be back in those blue rag tags in mid-October when basketball practice resumes, returning to their true form.
Enjoy the temporary reprieve.
