Bonus points can also come from other options such as specials teams play

When you need all the points and excitement you can pull from one of those special bonus points can come from your special team’s guys.

Whether exciting or irrelevant there isn’t much middle ground for fans to talk about when special teams guys drop back to receive a kick. It’s been a while since Kentucky has been really good in this department.

However last week with Kentucky slogging through the first half, Barion Brown brought Kroger Field to its feet, well at least the ones in their seats, with a 100-yard touchdown run to open the second half. The first time since 2009 that Kentucky had returned a kickoff for a touchdown.

It was a moment and points that Kentucky needed and Brown delivered the jumpstart and points on the scoreboard.

Tayvion Robinson has killer speed as well when returning kicks and punts don’t sleep on him either.

If Florida kickers and defenders want to test that speed then go right ahead and kick it their way. In fact, we hope they do and then we can watch some slow Gators trying to catch up like Miami couldn’t do last week.

dark. Next. Calling Kentucky soft, predictable fuel the flames
