Rumor is Matt Roark may be startong at QB
Before game today MB said Joker would be given time to turn program around. I thought he has turned it around because we was going in the right direction a couple of years ago.
The defense was exceptional vs Georgia and UT !
Course today, Dooley's using the other QB at the goal line helped too.
FWIW, there were 59,855 fans in attendance today at Commonwealth Stadium. Remarkably, only a portion of two sections were wearing that God-forsaken orange color.
Normally, when they think they can gobble up some cheap tix in Lexington, I-75 is thick with Volunteer fans and they are crawling all over the stadium.
I must say, I have been going to UK football games for about 35 years and I cannot recall watching a UK vs. UT game that was completely devoid of talent by either team.
No matter. The streak has ended and Tennessee can not back into any bowl games this year. Mission accomplished.

How many of the BBN knew the name Matt Roark before yesterday? How many D1 teams have WON a game with only 15 passing yards? I'm sure there are many that have lost.
UNC losing to UNLV made it a pretty good day to be a UK fan too.

This is how a local writer put it:
Why UT didn't give a **** amazes me. If they don't care, why should I?There is simply no excuse to have a team arrive at its 12th game of the season — with a bowl bid on the line, no less — and play with so little organization and purpose as the Vols did last Saturday at Kentucky. It was the kind of epic mail-in that might keep the U.S. Postal Service afloat another couple of years.
I'm amazed they squeaked out one SEC win
