UGifA: Isaiah McKenzie Takes It To The House, Quayvon Hicks Ruins Everything, and other Awesome GIFs and Vines from UGA vs. Kentucky
The big question this week was how UGA would respond to the (and this is putting it kindly) unadulterated ass-whopping the “#Dwags” took from the Gators last week.
The big question had to be how the Defensive Line was going to res—
OH HELL ISAIAH MCKENZIE SCORIN’ SO FAST I CANT EVEN FINISH MY INTRODUCTION
The Joystick is gone. 11 seconds into the game.
Now, to be fair to Kentucky I would have taken that kick to at least the 50 with that hole. Their kick coverage was not so good. In fact, it was absolutely god-awful. But McKenzie is super fast and, most importantly, super young. He’ll be around for a little while, which is pretty encouraging.
NICK CHUBB. BEING A BEAST. WHATEVS. NOTHING TO SEE HERE.
Shhh, these aren’t the droids you’re looking for. Move along.
Eventually, however, the Dawgs had to do something other than hand the ball off to Nick Chubb. This included but was not limited to kicking off to Kentucky after a Touchdown. Kentucky fumbled one of those TDs and the call on the field was a recovery by UGA. But as our luck would have it this turnover was not to be (though there would be others). So the obvious response as a Kentucky fan would be to…
THANK SWEET BABY JESUS.
Cuz it sure as hell didn’t have anything to do with Kentucky being any good at the football…
HUTSON MASON STILL THROWS THE HIGHEST AND SLOWEST OF BALLS
But he threw them to all the right people this time so it’s cool. I could pick one or two GIFs to illustrate this but instead I’ll throw it back to our exclusive footage of Mason’s TD pass from the Mizzou game….
At this point UGA was rolling which produced…
THE MOST ACCURATE TWEET OF ALL TIME
Vineyard, as per usual, is dead on.
At that point everything looked pretty much sealed up for UGA. As you know, nothing can ever be that simple for a Mark Richt football club. So something crazy had to happen.
NOW I HAVE BECOME QUAYVON, DESTROYER OF WORLDS
Honest to God, I left the room before this happened. Got back in time to see Kentucky driving the ball down the field. And I didn’t even think twice about it. I didn’t rewind the DVR. I was just like, “oh special teams turnover. cool.”
Now, you might expect that UGA would sit Quayvon down after a debacle like that. Oh wait, no you wouldn’t expect that because that WOULD MAKE SENSE and UGA Special Teams ain’t got no time for sense making. So obviously the strategy then became: make sure Quayvon caught every kickoff from that point on. Which led to some HILARIOUS foolishness.
It wasn’t all Quayvon’s fault but Kentucky did come back to close the margin to little more than a TD by halftime.
KENTUCKY WITH THE MOST KENTUCKY START TO THE SECOND HALF YOU COULD IMAGINE
All you had to do was come out and score. But you did the opposite of that.
All things considered, really good pick by Corey Moore though.
After that the floodgates were more than open, which included another visit from the human joystick…
ISAIAH MCKENZIE IS FAST AND STUFF I GUESS
And so were Kentucky’s hopes of winning this game.
Also just FYI…
KENTUCKY STILL ISN’T BOWL ELIGIBLE
Let’s check their remaining schedule.
They get a truly resurgent Tennessee next week and then a vindictive Louisville squad to finish off the season.
Yeah, that’s probably not gonna go well.
Enjoy basketball season, Big Blue Nation.
