Throwback Thursday: Team Patrick and Kentucky Football's rise

Expectations are higher than ever for Kentucky Football coming off another ten-win season, which is pretty remarkable when you consider where the program was just ten years ago. The 40-0 loss to Vanderbilt in November 2012 ended Joker Phillips’ tenure at Kentucky and is the low point of a truly depressing chapter in the program’s history. There’s no need to relive that sad, gray day in Commonwealth Stadium in detail, except for one bright spot: Team Patrick.

As KSR readers, you probably remember how Matt Jones, Drew Franklin, and Nick Roush spotted a fan sitting all by himself in Section 206 and joined him as the rout rolled on.
