Barnhart and players thank Kentucky fans and more in today’s quickies.

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

Kentucky fell to Florida, but it wasn’t because of a lack of support. The Big Blue Nation showed up loud and proud Saturday night, and athletic director Mitch Barnhart and the Wildcats made sure they expressed their gratitude for that. It’s certainly not time to pack it in and stop cheering them on; there’s still plenty of time left for the Cats to bounce back and make an impression in the SEC.
