Kash Daniel speaks his mind on national media not respecting UK

Daniel is fed up with all the disrespect UK has gotten following a 10-win season.

Kash Daniel Jason Marcum - Sea of Blue

Kash Daniel isn’t someone who’s afraid to speak his mind and tell it like it is, especially when it comes to his team.

When asked about ESPN’s over/under prediction for the Wildcat’s football team, he held nothing back.

Kentucky’s over/under win total projection was set at 6 games a season after going 10-3. After losing key players, including Josh Allen and Benny Snell Jr., it’s obvious that the national media are not nearly as high on the Wildcats in 2019.

When asked by LEX 18’s Charlie Walter about the prediction, Daniel seemed a tad annoyed by the lack of respect.

“They’re just a bunch of jackasses. Who cares? ESPN, NBC, CBS...I don’t care. The season starts in August and we’ll see how it goes.”

The senior linebacker set the record straight as no team should really take any projection about them to heart. If you just look back at last season, you will see a Kentucky Football team that may have overachieved by the standards of the media, but reached heights that they believed they could from the very start.

Daniel, a team captain last season who finished third on the team in both total tackles (84) and tackles for loss (7.5), is a fiery leader who doesn’t need any more outside motivation to push his teammates.

If Kentucky keeps getting sold short, though, Daniel and Wildcats will have all the motivation they need to ‘overachieve’ next season as well.
