BTI's Rants and Ramblings: Goal #1 This Year is Beating Florida

We've said this before when it comes to the losing streak that Kentucky has against Florida, now standing at 30 games, that this is the year that we get payback.  But I truly feel like never before has it seemed more likely and almost destined than it is this year.  If UK can't pull it off now, there is really no reason to ever have hope of doing it.  If UK can pull off a win over Tennessee after 20-whatever years playing a WR at quarterback with a inept coach, then I sure as hell believe they can win at home against a team in some bit of turmoil and with a slew of returning skill players.  But if you needed a little extra motivation, here are 9 good reasons and a couple videos that should make you believe why 2017 will be the year: 1988: Florida 24, Kentucky 19 1989: Florida 38, Kentucky 28 1991: Florida 35, Kentucky 26 1993: Florida 24, Kentucky 20 2002: Florida 41, Kentucky 34 2003: Florida 24, Kentucky 21 2007: Florida 45, Kentucky 37 2014: Florida 36, Kentucky 30 (3ot) 2015: Florida 14, Kentucky 9 Nine times UK has been within 10 points of the Gators, 6 of those times within a touchdown.  The 1994 and 2014 losing are especially brutal considering how those games finished.  But to be honest, I LIKE IT.  There really shouldn't need to be any extra motivation from Stoops or the coaches to get these players fired up. It's time.
