This team can do something special, and Cal still believes in them.

NCAA Basketball: Tennessee State at Kentucky Mark Zerof-USA TODAY Sports

Last night was not the best game for the Kentucky Wildcats on the court.

Against a 2-3 Tennessee State squad, the Wildcats just seemed to struggle all night long, and without Keldon Johnson scoring a career-high 27 points, the game might have been closer.

Coach Cal took to twitter today before he leaves for his two day recruiting trip to relay the message that he still likes his team, and he likes them a lot.

Cal is right that this team is a process. You wouldn’t have thought that back in August, but maybe this team is just going through start of the season jitters as we’ve seen before. It is encouraging to hear that the players understand what they have to do to achieve something special this season, as well as them continuing to bring it in practice.

Whatever you do, BBN, just stick by this team, because we have seen the damage they can do.
