I got this note from long-time Kentucky football fan — and former journalist — Barry Peel after Louisville’s win over Florida in the Sugar Bowl?
“I don’t get it. I just don’t get it. An inability to attract premium players always is given as a major weakness for UK football and at least a dozen excuses offered to explain it. So how is it that Louisville can attract enough players to be ranked and to embarrass Florida? Why can’t UK find a “Bridgewater” occasionally and end this annual hand-wringing over the quarterback position? I don’t get it. I just don’t get it!”
Great questions and obvious frustration.
So I want to see how you would explain this situation to Peel because it does make one wonder why Louisville made it look so easy against the Gators and UK can’t beat Florida.
