Per source: Kentucky football could be without as many as 16 players tomorrow at No. 1 Alabama due to a combination of injuries and COVID issues. Long odds get much longer.— Kyle Tucker (@KyleTucker_ATH) November 21, 2020
It was bound to happen and I’m glad Kentucky has done such a good job handling the virus. But could this have hit at a worse time? We all know how difficult it is going to be for the Cats but being down up to 16 players makes it damn near impossible. I’m not sure which positions have been hit but there really isn’t a position where Kentucky can afford to lose people.
I think the main things we can get out of this game are no injuries and respect.

Dwight Howard has been replaced with a younger, more effective player. If Anthony Davis does indeed re-sign with the Lakers, that team is going to be even better than they were.
Isaiah Jackson is trending toward that lottery.
Well at least they’ll look good today.
