A bold prediction for the remainder of Kentucky’s football season

Prediction: Kentucky won’t lose another football game this season. Yeah, I know, Mark Stoops’ Cats got slapped around by Georgia in Athens on Saturday, losing 30-13 to the No. 1-ranked Bulldogs. They were outgained 416-243. Their bread-and-butter ground attack managed a meager 51 yards on 27 attempts. Their cosmetic touchdown with three seconds remaining riled up the gamblers and flummoxed the media. To be sure, Kentucky failed in its big chance to prove it is on the same level as the elite of college football’s elite.
