SEC football has the advantage that when y'all are down, someone else picks up the banner. When UK is down,we currently have Florida as the flavor of the month. Arkansas and LSU before that, Alabama and Tennessee before that. The rest of the country doesn't give two craps about anyone in this conference outside of Kentucky. Florida is a consistent program these days, but when Billy leaves they go back to just like they always were. Their fans pretend to care but they would trade a football title for a basketball one without a second thought, and don't really care if basketball goes back to sit, as long as football wins. They couldn't even be bothered to show up to see their championship banners hung up during a regular season game. This is why Kentucky fans hate them. Not because they're making us have to work for conference titles, but because 90% of their fan base don't give a and just use it as a talk ploy to piss us off. We would take the basketball title every time over football.
Alabama gets it. Y'all took the trophies around to places like WalMart for the fans, who waitednwho knows how long just to get a flimpse,. That's Kentucky basketball passion right there.
