Kash Daniel

Anybody who has ever played football knows that it’s a violent and highly emotional game. Taunting, trash talking, and physicality are necessary components to the sport, always have been, and always will be. That’s just the way it is.

But there’s a fine line between that and intentionally trying to cause physical damage to an opponent after a play is over. And Kentucky linebacker Kash Daniel crossed that line on Saturday night with his dirty play against Florida QB Kyle Trask.

The Gators had just scored a touchdown to take a 22-21 lead over the Wildcats late in the fourth quarter. Dan Mullen elected to go for two with a quarterback draw, and it didn’t work; Trask was met by a sea of blue jerseys and didn’t get close. But Daniel, one of the players who tackled him, decided to take it a step further. See for yourself.

As terrible as this is on its own, it’s made all the worse by the fact that the Gators had just lost their starting quarterback Feleipe Franks to a dislocated ankle less than an hour earlier. The idea that Daniel would try to replicate that exact injury is pretty awful, and it should, if the NCAA or the SEC have a thimbleful of morality, trigger a multi-game suspension to send the message that doing something like this is not acceptable.

And Kash, you owe Kyle Trask an apology.

  1. KENTUCKY HAS ISSUES WITH FLORIDA…..WE BEAT THEM 30 STRAIGHT AND THEN THEY WIN 1 AND THINK THEY ARE THE KING OF THE HILL..BOTTOM LINE..FLORIDA SPORTS PROGRAM WON THE ALL SPORTS TROPHY FOR THE SEC 26 OF THE LAST 31 TIMES…DURING THAT TIME WE HAVE 3 NATIONAL CHAMPIONSHIPS IN FOOTBALL TO THEIR NONE……..ONE GOOD SEASON DOES NOT MAKE A PROGRAM….I HOPE THAT KENTUCKY ON ITS OWN DOES THE RIGHT THING AND SUSPENDS THIS THUG FOR AT LEAST 3 GAMES……….HEY IM NOT SURPRISED….EVER BEEN TO A KENTUCKY BASKETBALL GAME AND SEE THE NUMBER OF FOULS CALLED ON THE OPPONENT VS KENTUCKY????? HUMM

  2. Until I see a better image of it, all I see is a guy holding onto a player in a short yardage play and in slow motion excerpt himself to get to his feet as he releases his hold. If I’m wrong I will gladly admit it but until it is determined for a fact this young man should not be labeled. If you keep taking physical aspects out of the game you end up with soccer. I would never condone injuring a player on purpose but I won’t condemn a player for playing physically with passion. Just one HILLBILLYS TAKE!! Again if he was doing what is being said he should be punished but our country is founded on innocent until proven guilty, yet we lost that somewhere along the way!!

    1. You’ve clearly never played soccer as an adult…

      Regardless, I don’t like current usage of the term thug but it’s clear Kash had ill intentions as he was holding that foot. There’s no need to pretend otherwise. Now, is there enough evidence to force the NCAA to react? Doubt it.
