It’s been almost 24 hours since we embarrassingly and devastatingly lost to Mississippi State. I don’t know about you, but I’m still not over it. So, instead of focusing on the loss, here’s five good things that we can smile about and look forward to this week.
1. Remember that there’s basketball happening Friday night.
I hate to be that person that talks about basketball during football season, but also – it’s basketball season. Our first exhibition game is THIS Friday. The Cats take on Thomas Moore at 7PM and yes because we’re Kentucky it’ll be on the SEC Network.
2. Will Butch Jones survive?
Here we are on another Sunday, wondering how the heck Butch Jones still has a job. UT lost to Bama 45-7 as well. I don’t know if it’s comforting or insulting to know that we lost the same way UT did. who’s to say if Butch will make it up to Lexington this Saturday?
Jimmy Hyams just said Butch could keep his job if he goes 8-4, as long as one of the four wasn’t to Kentucky.

Much like Tennessee’s team this year, this tweet doesn’t make much sense.
3. Kentucky Volleyball is KILLING it!
Our girls have been on a roll y’all. The Cats swept Tennessee today (hopefully a foreshadow for our football team), with this win they’ve now won 12 straight. Here’s the final minute of the game via @KentuckyVB

Honestly, they nailed it.
5. We’re NOT Louisville.
As always, even though we lost yesterday – let’s remember that things could be worse. We’re not under federal investigation, our coach is still our coach, and we’re a stripper free program!
