This is what futility looks like:
38 Consecutive seasons have passed since Kentucky most recently posted a winning record against SEC competition. It’s the longest such streak in conference history. The Wildcats posted a 2-6 league record in 2015. Kentucky hasn’t finished above .500 in SEC play since 1977, when DE Art Still and QB Derrick Ramsey led the Wildcats to a 6-0 conference mark. In addition to its six Eastern Division opponents, Kentucky has Alabama and Mississippi State on its conference slate in 2016.
When a team other than Vanderbilt holds a mark like that, you know it’s pretty sad. And with that 2016 schedule, I wouldn’t bet on it ending this year.

I think there are guys who were on the 77 UGA football team who are still waiting for the cleat marks Derrick Ramsey left in their sternums to heal.
The 1977 Kentucky game was the occasion of the “Prince Charles Does It Dog Style” banner.
Speaking of basketball, let hope that’s what the UNC players are thinking about Saturday night. I’m pretty sure that’s where their fan base’s collective head is.
I for one am looking forward to the team Fox puts on the floor this year, close hard fought round all.
