Kentucky Is Not Hitting the Panic Button After Mississippi State Loss

by:Nick Roush09/23/19


Like every single person reading this, Mark Stoops was not happy with the result of Kentucky's trip to Starkville. Two days later, you could still feel the anger in his voice after the 28-13 loss to Mississippi State. "I'm disappointed," Stoops said at his weekly press conference. "We accept the criticism and we're all in this together. It's not okay with us either. As a program and an organization we need to find ways, find answers and that's what we do, go back to work." A few disgruntled fans may have thrown in the towel after the game. Stoops was asked if this week's trip to South Carolina is a must-win to keep every fan engaged for the rest of the season. "Where they gonna go? I mean, come on. We've won a lot football games around here. I thought we were over that," he said. "That's a good football team on the road with a young team and we didn't play our best, but that kind of talk seems a little crazy to me. No offense to everybody in this industry here today, people like to panic. We don't necessarily panic in our building. We just go back to work and continue to get better." [mobile_ad]
