Wildcat Quickies: Heartbreaking loss Edition

Kentucky loses to Georgia, get ready for Asbury and more.

NCAA Football: Georgia at Kentucky Mark Zerof-USA TODAY Sports

Kentucky’s loss to Georgia certainly stung. The Cats had a great atmosphere to play in, and a win would’ve made them bowl eligible. Unfortunately, the loss forces them to wait at least another week (or two) to reach the 6 win milestone. However, it’s clear that progress has been made, and criticism should be withheld until this team shows they haven’t improved (they’d have to go 5-7 to not have improved).

Seriously though, how about Jordan Jones?
