Thank you to Vandy Coach Mason for declining the penalty. Class move. These are hard times at Kentucky with Chris Oats medical situation, Matthew Mitchell's way too early retirement due to head injury and the loss of beloved Coach Schlarman. We sometimes get caught up in wins and losses and rivalries and forget about the real people involved. Thanks to all the SEC brethren for their support and good wishes for these families.

Great gesture by UK and Vandy. Schlarman was a quality man, and coach. 45 years old, leaving behind a wife and 4 young children. RIP Mr. Schlarman
