With Kentucky’s NCAA hopes reaching some bit of stable ground over the past couple of weeks, the Cats hit the road Wednesday to face a down and seemingly out Mississippi State team. On paper, it would seem that the Cats would have little trouble dispatching of the Bulldogs. However, this could be a dangerous trap game for Kentucky. With a few wins under their belt, despite being somewhat uninspiring ones, the Cats are beginning to feel pretty good about themselves. Combine that with this team’s customary first few minutes of the game malaise, its usual lack of respect for inferior opponents, and a matchup with the hated Gators on Saturday, and this one could be dicey. Let’s hope the Cats break that trend by taking control early. If not, this one may come back to haunt the Cats on selection Sunday.
