So today I went to Lexington and caught my beloved Kentucky Wildcats against the Bayou Bengals. All I can say is Wow. The greatest college game have I ever seen period even if we lost. That last play was incredible. I kept saying "They are celebrating too soon!"

That last play will go down with the Flutie bomb and Kordell Prayer as one of the greatest plays in college history. It was obvious that the UK bench and fans didn't realize LSU had 1 more time out when the one kid caught the ball fell down at the 30 with 2 seconds left. LSU called time and the Randall kid (who looked good) dropped back inside the 10 and heaved it. #2 for UK could have knocked it down, instead he did the one thing you are taught not to do- he tipped it up. The rest, as they say, is college football history.

After everyone realized what happened it was like Duke/Kentucky (AKA the Laetner shot) 1992 all over again. But even upset as I was, it was easily the greatest college football game I have ever seen. UK coming from behind to take the lead with 15 seconds left and then the LSU last second miracle. Unforgettable.

Actually, what makes it even funnier to watch is all the Kentucky students running down the field celebrating, then the expression of their faces when they figure out that LSU won the game. Never douse the coach when its a one possession game, especially in college football. And, when will everyone learn, if you can't knock the ball down, tackle the receiver before he can catch the ball, its only a 15 yard penalty in college, why give up the big play when its not a spot of the foul penalty.

Greatest finish EVAH. (Or am I wrong?)

After this game, they pick another one as an Instant Classic? I don't think it was Syracuse/Va Tech, which could also be one as well...

We've got Duke in basketball and now we have this for football :-(

Any wonder why Kentucky fans are pessimists?

Sorriest execution of hail mary defense ever.

THAT should never happen, not at that point on the field, where a guy not only has to catch the pass, but run it 30 more yards as well. At least the Flutie and Stewart Hail Mary's were actually thrown into the end-zone. There should be several player's who only job is to not let anybody past them. They should have no concern for the ball. Once the ball is tipped, you start tackling everybody in white shirts, because it's not interference once the ball is touched. Kentucky HAD three guys in position to make a play on the receiver, but it was as if they were frozen in place, just watching the ball. I'm not sure they even realized that an LSU receiver was running by them all to get the ball. I think they just expected to look back to see the ball hitting the ground.

Only teams like Kentucky can find a way like this to pull defeat from the jaws of victory. Maybe they will learn that you have to play ALL 60 minutes, down to the last second.
