Hat tip to Kyle Tucker for bringing this stat to light, but Kentucky ranks 121st nationally out of 125 FBS teams on third down. Kentucky is ahead of Penn State, FIU, USF and Miami of Ohio. It’s going to be hard to win many games until Kentucky becomes more productive on 3rd down conversions.   Kentucky’s…

We’ll always have that fake field goal. Unfortunately, that was one of the few highlights of Kentucky’s 27th straight loss to Florida. Kentucky kept it close in the first quarter, but that was about it. The dual-QB system prevented the Cats from finding any kind of flow offensively, and as a result, its best play…
