Was it really just two or three weeks ago when Kentucky football was the sexy pick of many to be one of the most improved teams in the Southeastern Conference this season and win six, seven or maybe even eight games.
With UK leading Southern Mississippi 35-10 late in the second quarter of the first game, those projections seemed realistic. Then Southern Miss ran off 34 straight points and last week Florida opened a 45-0 lead before winning 45-7.
Now winning more than two games this year is going to require major, immediate improvement fro the Cats. So can they start over?
“To a point, yes. I’ve never been one to just wash a game. We have to all be held accountable for what we do. I know that. It starts with me,” Kentucky coach Mark Stoops said Saturday.
“So, we’ve got to look at all the things that we’re asking these players to do and what they can do better. But to a point, yes. To a point we can only control next week and how we prepare, how we play. Let’s go try to get one victory and go from there.”
