After starting the season out 5-1, the Cats lost five straight, which has pretty much killed all of the momentum headed into the season finale against Louisville. Has the losing streak affected recruiting? Earlier today, Mark Stoops said not at all.
“No, not at all. I feel very good about where we’re at and where we’re going recruiting,” Stoops told reporters. When asked, he said he doesn’t believe the losing streak has put doubts in his current players’ heads either. “No, I don’t worry about that one bit. We have a good group of players that enjoy playing here and have really worked hard and done the right things. I think you could ask them, I think they have full trust in what we’re doing. So I don’t worry about that at all on the recruiting front.”
Meanwhile, Damien Harris had this reaction to the news Dorian Baker will be out the rest of the season with a knee injury:

Emojipedia (yes, there is such a thing) describes that as the “weary face.” Weary because he’s sad about his future teammate’s injury, amirite??
