    The last time Kentucky beat Florida .. no players on UF’s roster were alive.
    It was November 15, 1986 .. when the Wildcats prevailed 10-3 in Lexington.
    The Gators have since ripped off 26 consecutive victories.

    Did you know that the maximum lifespan of an actual wildcat is 21 years?

    That means all wildcats born on November 15, 1986, are long dead.

    I was getting ready to graduate from UF. Back in those days, it seemed like there was a bench clearing brawl on the field when we played UK more often than not.

    As I recall.........Octavious Gould was hurt going into this game or got hurt in the game?
    Seems like we turned the ball over at midfield late in the game...Did I mention it was cold......Brrrr.

    What about the maximum life span of fake wildcats?

    1986 is the year that the NCAA sanctions finally got to us and UF was in dire danger of having a losing season....some sterling play at home by a limping Kerwin Bell against AU and a clutch end zone catch by Ray MacDonald sr in a monsoon up in Tallahassee aginst the girls school helped prevent it. The next year saw Emmitt on the field as true frosh and although we had some ugly years late in the 1980s...we never had a losing season.

    That endzone catch was by Ricky"The Rocket" Nattiel.
    What was funny was BB saying"We controlled them most of the game and then Bell to Nattiel beat us at the end"...LOL

    I was so glad when they moved that game to where it is now. A big Gator advantage to never have to go Lexington in mid -November

    Gas was $0.89 per gallon and the USFL just folded after winning treble damages against the NFL

    No TV. Sat at the back deck of the Pi Kapp house and listened. Had we won that game we would have played in the first Hall of Fame Bowl (now Outback Bowl) in Tampa.

    We were severely weakened by probation. We had Kerwin Bell who had just led us to a spectacular last second come from behind victory over Auburn after entering the game late having missed the previous month due to a knee injury. He and star receiver Ricky Nattiel then gunned down the Leghumpers in Jax. We then went up to Kentucky and had a letdown - and it was cold as hell and due to the sanctions our OL wasn't very good and we had no real ground game. Kerwin then gunned down half assed U on their home field the next week.

    It was Ricky Nattiel who burned sow safety Dedrick Dodge in the back of the endzone to seal the victory for UF in a driving monsoon.

    TB Wayne Williams who entered UF with lots of press clippings but didn't quite live up to that really came through for us in a big way that night. Sophomore Louis Oliver blocked a sow FG attempt to set up the game winning score. He would explode onto the scene and become a first team AA the next two years.

    UK may have a shot this year...they have come close before...and just think if Murphy goes down in the game early and they have a lead. Also, I think they played okay versus Louisville as Bridgewater only put 27 on them. I know they are terrible but I can't remember the last time UF brought an offense with this many concerns before to Lexington.
