When Alabama's budding inside linebacker star, Dont'a Hightower, blew out his knee and was declared unable to play for the rest of the 2009 season, Tide fans tore their clothes and wept.

Alabama coach Nick Saban shifted outside linebacker Cory Reamer to Hightower's position and added Courtney Upshaw to the starting lineup at Reamer's position for the next game, which was against Kentucky. It didn't work too well, as Kentucky found weaknesses in the defense and gained 133 yards on the ground and 168 in the air.
