Scoreboard

NASHVILLE, Tenn. - The game ended, and the team in blue walked slowly off, while the team in orange jumped exuberantly at their bowl victory. The victors watched as the lights shone brightly on the end zone scoreboard, while the blue team only briefly glanced, from time to time, as if the numbers might change.

Three times in the last four years Kentucky has played in the postseason, and their players, fans, and coaching staff looked triumphantly at the end zone, with scores like "28-20," "35-28," and "25-19," each time with the Cats having the bigger number. The glances were often stares, as if attempting to imbed the image permanently for posterity.

This year, though, it was a glance to reaffirm what we saw--the scoreboard, they say, does not lie. It sees all, knows all, and tells all.
