Former Kentucky Wildcats continue to weigh in and voice their displeasure with the debacle that took place Saturday in the Swamp.
The latest UK alum to chime in is Martavius Neloms, who was about as harsh as anyone has been with his assessment of Mark Stoops and his program.

Harsh truths and I don't give a shit. Stoops WASNT THE ANSWER!— Martavius Neloms (@TAYweather_TMT) September 10, 2016
Neloms also does not believe Stoops’ $12 million buyout will save him if things getting worse.
12 mill for a buyout? Shit didn't we jus spend 45 mill on a new facility. Hell we got it— Martavius Neloms (@TAYweather_TMT) September 10, 2016
And Stoops wasn’t the only one in Neloms crosshatch. UK athletics director Mitch Barnhart has now hired two straight football coaches who likely won’t make it past Year 4 in their UK tenure.
At many Power schools, that can get you fired, which Neloms seems to think should happen.
Mitch the damn problem too. Basketball the only thing that holds his ass here and he don't even do shit for them. That's alllllllll Cal— Martavius Neloms (@TAYweather_TMT) September 10, 2016
Just throwing it out there, but in SEC only UK & Vandy's AD's could have survived this level of football for the past 7 years. 100% true.— Justin Rowland (@RowlandRIVALS) September 10, 2016
I don't advocate for ppl losing their jobs BUT in this business if you don't produce we all know what happens and what should happen— Martavius Neloms (@TAYweather_TMT) September 10, 2016
Former UK safety Mikie Benton also weighed in, and while his comments aren’t as harsh, they are a reminder of how bad things are getting.
Something has to shake. At this rate we'll end worse than what we did my senior year. 2wins. Wasn't any "top" recruits on our team either.— Mikie Benton (@Mikeb31) September 10, 2016
My senior was prolly the worst year ever for UK football. But this season on the verge of being worst. Gotta wake up.— Mikie Benton (@Mikeb31) September 10, 2016
This coming from a guy who came into UK team as a freshman winning 8 games and went out just winning two. Players aren't the problem.— Mikie Benton (@Mikeb31) September 10, 2016
Just ready for UK to get back to those '06-'09 days. Fun to watch/play. Players loved their coaches and it showed. Got down, fought back.— Mikie Benton (@Mikeb31) September 10, 2016
Sometimes, silence can speak just as loudly as anything seen above, which seems to be the approach former Wildcats Landon Foster and Maxwell Smith went for.
Biting my tongue.— Landon Foster (@LandonFoster09) September 10, 2016

Oh, and Florida quarterback Luke Del Rio added salt to the wound with his postgame review of UK’s defense doing nothing to him.
