The Kentucky Wildcats’ start to the 2020-21 season is not sitting well with the Big Blue Nation.

After dominating Morehead State in their season opener, Kentucky’s watched their offense go cold as they’ve dropped back-to-back games after losing to Richmond at Rupp Arena and Kansas in the Champions Classic in Indianapolis.

Despite the slow start, UK head coach John Calipari doesn’t appear overly worried as he tweeted a message to the fan base on Wednesday urging them to keep believing in his team and taking responsibility for their inability to hold onto a late four-point lead.

“We came down on five straight possessions and made one or no passes before a shot,” Calipari tweeted. “It means I haven’t done a good job teaching these kids how to win.”

Cal added that he hopes the fan base will “stick with” his team as they navigate through their early-season woes.

The Wildcats will be back in action Sunday in Atlanta against the Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets.
