Senior Day is here. It’s always bittersweet knowing you’re heading up to the last home game of the season, but maybe it’s a bit more so this year, because of the head of steam that’s been built up over the past few weeks.
I wouldn’t mind if there were a few more home games left. (Unlike some of the students, sad to say.)
Anyway, there is the sweet part. Unlike their immediate predecessors, these seniors have something big left to play for. And you can only hope it’s not a one-off experience. No senior class from this program should ever lack the experience of having played in an SECCG.
As for a game preview, five minutes spent wallowing in conference stats will tell you that it’s going to be an uphill climb for Kentucky to make a game of it today. Which isn’t the same thing as neglecting to note the recent history of the series, which has certainly had its ups and downs from a Georgia standpoint. But Kentucky lacks the playmakers it had to make a tough showing like it did in some of those matches.
Which isn’t to say that Joe T shouldn’t be getting all medieval on their asses about making sure their minds aren’t right. No repeat of this low point is necessary.
Consider this your game day thread.
