Clay Travis Says This Major Fan Base Is The Country's "Dumbest"

Kentucky fans looking to unite against a common enemy this morning appear to have found one in the form of Clay Travis. The Fox Sports Radio host called Wildcat fans "the dumbest" in the country on Tuesday.

Travis' eight-minute long rant focused on Kentucky fans' reaction to the program's 15-14 last-second win over Missouri on Saturday. The Wildcat offense was non-existent for almost the entire game before Terry Wilson hit C.J. Conrad for the game-winning score on the final play of the game.

Travis did not think the game should have been close. He's also predicting 7-1 Georgia will roll over 7-1 Kentucky in Lexington on Saturday.

“Missouri should have won that game by 20 points,” Travis said via 247Sports. “They had total control of that game. If that game was played again in Columbia next week, I would make the exact same bet. Missouri didn’t get a first down in the second half. You have to get a first down when you have a draftable quarterback on the team. Why are Kentucky fans so consistently dumb? It is the dumbest fan base — basketball, football. There’s no element to their stupidity.

“Missouri should’ve won that game by double figures. When I saw this line come down under 10 (Georgia-Kentucky), I said my god, I’m going whole hog, all-in on Georgia to roll into Lexington and lobotomize all the idiot Kentucky fans who have not watched enough football to even know what a good football team looks like. This ain’t it. You should’ve gotten killed by Missouri. It’s going to happen — Georgia will dismantle Kentucky.”

Wilson's winning pass came on an untimed down after Missouri was called for defensive pass interference, a call that Travis said was "blown."

"This was so stupid of a blown call that Missouri fans should be irate," Travis said. "That would've been a good win for Missouri. It was a blown call. That official should have to answer for that bad of a call. I don't know why we've said judgment calls are not reviewable. Why shouldn't a coach be able to challenge a judgment call? Every call made during a football call is a judgment call. It was totally blown and the result changed the outcome of the game."

You can watch Travis' full spiel below.

Kentucky enters Saturday's game with a legit chance at winning the SEC East. If they can beat the Bulldogs, they'll be in the driver's seat.

However, Georgia is a double-digit favorite according to Vegas. Given Kentucky's offensive struggles, they will need to show major improvement in order to knock off Kirby Smart's team.

Kentucky and Georgia will kick off at 3:30 p.m. ET on CBS.
