VaughtÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s note: Vaughtsviews.com regular Jo Ann Rice suggested before the South Carolina game that WLEX-TV (Channel 18) find a way to print T-shirts with Randall CobbÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s No. 18 on them since she expected him to set the UK all-time touchdown record Ã¢â‚¬â€ and he did exactly that. So itÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s really no surprise she made this post I wanted to make sure everyone saw.

I will keep this short and sweet. Randall Cobb has no reason to apologize for his comments on Twitter. He was honest and direct. If people are upset, perhaps they resent those remarks because they RESEMBLE those remarks.
At the start of the game, I was also disturbed by all the empty seats that I saw in the stadium, especially in the student section. I was disturbed by those individuals sitting around me that said they were leaving once the score reached 28-10.
I was disturbed when the menÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s basketball team was introduced and up to that point in time, the menÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s team received the eveningÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s biggest round of applause. At that time, there was a change in the gameÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s momentum and the football team needed the fansÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ support. I was encouraged, however, by the individuals around me that said, Ã¢â‚¬Å“They need to get the basketball team off the field. This game belongs to our football team!Ã¢â‚¬Â
So Randall, you donÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t need to apologize. There are fans that truly appreciate the fact that you and your teammates are committed to playing the game with all you have until the last second of the game.
Just know that there are fans who will remain in the stands cheering you all on until the last second of the game. And by the way Randall, I wear my 18 jersey every time our football Cats take the field.
