Kentucky kicking game is so frightening so let’s just keep them on the sideline

It’s like that song that gets stuck in your head or Ground Hog Day when Kentucky kicking squad sprints onto the field. Your immediate reaction is “Oh God, I can’t watch this” and you probably shouldn’t.

Game after game this season it’s like this and darn if we aren’t talking about it again.

Kentucky answers Tennessee’s touchdowns in the first quarter on a touchdown by Rodriguez. Out trots Matt Ruffolo to kick the point and per the norm, it’s either a bad snap, hold or kick with the same result.


We’ll go with a block and it nearly proved even more disastrous as the Vols nearly scooped it up and were a block away from running it the length of the field for their own score. The Tennessee defense made getting to the kick so easy as the UK line did very little to block.

Levis should just tell Stoops to go for two points after each touchdown and forget going for field goals.
