University of Kentucky football. Permit me to borrow from a George C. Scott speech in Patton, “... all this talk you hear about playing with a lot of heart and losing, is a buncha horse dung. I wouldn’t give a hoot-in-hell for a person who lost and laughed. Losing is hateful ... to Kentucky players and fans.”
To wit: Having strung together four winning seasons, the bar has long since been raised about the heartline.
Thus, UK’s 3-game skid in $EC play has sent fans at the tailgate retreating to debating If Onlys and silver linings.
