Florida-Kentucky hasn’t been all that competitive

Though Kentucky has won just four SEC East games with teams not named Vanderbilt over the past 10 years, for the most part the Cats have been at least halfway competitive in those games.

Except for UK’s games with Florida.

The Cats have not beaten Florida in the past 25 years. Over the past five four years, the Gators have beaten Kentucky by a combined 200-36, or an average score of 50-9.

Over the past 10 years, Florida has beaten Kentucky by an average of 23.9 points per game. By comparison, Georgia holds a +15.9 average advantage over UK from 2002 through 2011.

There was Florida’s 63-5 win over Kentucky in 2008, the Gators 41-7 win in 2009, the 48-14 win 2010 and the 48-10 win last season.

    You might want to refigure your math. 200 divided by 5 is 40. Doesn’t make the series any closer, but it is basic math.

    Should have said four, not five.

    Eleven Eastern Division wins in ten years.

    Wow and I thought all these fans thought Rich Brooks was such a great coach. Duh look at his SEC record it is just as bad as many of the rest. He just managed to schedule a much weaker non-SEC schedule.
