Kentucky Wildcats: What We Learned In Week 5, What To Look For In Week 6

The Kentucky Wildcats (1-3, 0-1) are still searching fruitlessly for answers on offense, as made apparent by a 24-7 loss to Florida. Granted, the Gators defense is one of the best in college football, but when your kicker is the leading rusher in a game (25 yards), you know you have major problems in the playmaking department.

Unfortunately, things don’t appear to be getting any better in Lexington, as head coach Mark Stoops had this to say about his team’s Thursday practice during a six-minute rant.

“Very unacceptable practice today,” he said. “Preparation wasn’t good enough, effort wasn’t good enough, attitude wasn’t good enough. Not good enough. Very frustrated. Some guys are looking for a rock to hide under. It’s going to be a very difficult and tough game, and I don’t know if we’re ready for it.”

Have the Wildcats already packed it in and given up on this season?

What to look for in Week 6: A place to hide (if you’re a Cats’ offensive player) – not from the head coach, well maybe from the head coach, but definitely from the upcoming defense. Things don’t get any easier this week for Kentucky’s offense, as it takes on No. 13 South Carolina on the road. Things may not be quite as tough as they were last week against Florida, but don’t expect to see any offensive fireworks against the Gamecocks. And this week is only the beginning of an October stretch that will be brutal for the Wildcats, who finish up the month against No. 1 Alabama and Mississippi State.
