Podcast: Not a pleasant task, but reviewing Kentucky’s agonizing loss to Florida

It’s a tough job, but somebody had to do it.

My fellow Herald-Leader sports columnist, Mark Story, joined me Sunday to dissect Kentucky’s painful 29-21 loss to the ninth-ranked Florida Gators on Saturday night at Kroger Field. Mark Stoops’ club let a 21-10 fourth-quarter lead slip away and dropped to 2-1 on the season, including 0-1 in the SEC.

We discussed play calling, the targeting calls, the play of quarterback Sawyer Smith, a possible running back controversy and if there might be hangover from the defeat heading into back-to-back road games at Mississippi State and South Carolina.
