The first half of the first season of the Marks Stoops-era at Kentucky, and while the 1-5 record doesn’t showcase the kid of improvement Big Blue Nation was hoping for, if you’ve watched the play on the field, you’d be hard-pressed to say this team hasn’t improved dramatically from last year’s team.

It got so bad at times last year that the Cats appeared lifeless and disinterested before the games even kicked-off, and even when they did make an effort to put up a fight, they made too many simple errors and mental mistakes to prevent them from staying competitive in the majority of games they played.

But that’s not been the case this year. While they’ve been undermanned and out-matched in nearly every game, these Cats have fought hard and showed improvements in each game.
