    Domination.

    Classless display by UK most of the day, embarrassing really.

    But hey, Lamar fumbled last year, right?

    Louisville did not punt once.

    Snell, man. What a player. That kid is going to be a problem for the next two years.

    For all of the UK football fans who have hung their hat on 7 victories this year as evidence that UK is a lot better this game showed the fallacy in that. They played 3 strong teams this year and were outscored 131-37.

    They played in a year where the SEC East was dreadful. They were lucky that EKU fumbled in the red zone or that would have been an L.

    The offense was one-dimensional. No chance to win a game where passing was required. If the opponent shut down Snell the game was over if the team was good.

    So did UK really get any better?

    Between Jordan Jones actions on the field this year and Nick Haynes comments last night online UK fans should be glad this season is almost over.

    Lamar Jackson is fantastic. So fun to watch.

    Benny Snell is a beast and was UK's lone bright spot.

    Jordan Jones is a punk and was embarrassing today.

    Awful performance by UK. Just awful.

    But The Deuce!

    All valid points. UK beat a lot of sorry teams on their way to seven wins. Had they played 12 good teams they would have finished 0-12. Make no mistake, this was a bad UK team. To answer your question, no, they did not get any better.

    As a Kentucky fan, I'm embarrassed by the way they played and acted today. Mark Stoops turned a 10-win season into 7 wins.

    It’s amazing what winning seven games will do to a fan base that isn’t used to it. A lot of unwarranted confidence from BBN prior to this one. Welcome back.

    Kentucky has no excuse. It's a joke that they can't compete with Louisville (except for last year when they beat Louisville).

    Only disappointment for me was lamar pushing back in the altercation in the first quarter. Lamar should have just let the dude know that nobody knows who he is and walked away.

    UK’s offense is too one dimensional and predictable. Easy to defend by any worthy opponent.

    UK has undoubtedly progressed under Stoops, but they did not progress from last year to this.

    The offense isn't the problem.
