LEXINGTON - No one on the Kentucky sideline said they heard a whistle blow as they watched linebacker Dustin Williams return a Tennessee fumble to the 2-yard line.
That could have given UK a 14-0 lead over No. 7 Tennessee, a team the Wildcats have not beaten since 1984, late in the first quarter. Instead, the officials huddled, ruled that Tennessee receiver William Revill had been stopped before he fumbled, and gave the ball back to Tennessee.
While that play didn't beat Kentucky, it was a big factor in Tennessee's 20-7 victory.
"That didn't mean anything," Kentucky coach Rich Brooks said sarcastically after the game. "It just would have given us another touchdown. That's all I'm going to say. I was warned about what would happen to Kentucky."
"I was just told when I got the job that Kentucky would not get many calls," Brooks said. "I think I got good advice."
