Tony Barnhart, the Atlanta Journal-Constitution’s outstanding college football writer, is sitting beside me in the press box, and put it very well.
“Kentucky has screwed this up about every way you can screw it up, and they’re still only down by 11.”
The defense is playing an outstanding game. But when your best players, guys like Andre’ Woodson and Rafael Little, make the most costly mistakes, it’s tough to overcome.
Those guys have enough time to atone, but it needs to happen now. SC is one score away from putting this away. UK has the ball at its own 31 with 7 minutes left in the third. Lots of time left. A fourth-quarter of the type they had at Arkansas would win this one going away, but eventually, falling behind because of your own execution will catch up with you.
