I'm not really sure what to say about Saturday other than...What else is new?

It's been the same old song and dance for pretty much the whole season: Good starts and bad finishes, so we really shouldn't be surprised Saturday went the way it did.

In the end, the season is almost certainly over outside of a possible bowl bid. All we can do now is move on and hope Mark Stoops makes the right coordinator/assistant coach hires this offseason and continues to pull Kentucky football out of one of the darker periods in program history.
