[caption id="" align="alignnone" width="620"] Michael Hickey | Getty Images[/caption] Kentucky fans do not need numbers to illustrate how bad their football team is through two games in 2016. We have eyeballs and television sets to tell us it is bad. But let's look at some of the numbers anyway because what doesn't kill us makes us stronger, or something like that. I'm sure there's a good quote out there for that. But here we go, Kentucky's spot outside the top 100 in several of the game's most important statistics...
