The Kentucky Wildcats fell to 1-6 with a disappointing 62-59 loss at rival Louisville on Saturday afternoon.

It is a historically awful start for the Wildcats, but not all the 6 losses have been bad. No, this isn’t an elite Kentucky team thus far, but it has played some top teams.

The Wildcats’ 6 losses have come against Kansas, Richmond, Georgia Tech, Notre Dame, North Carolina and Louisville. The only really “bad” loss in there was against Georgia Tech.

But, after Saturday’s loss, coach John Calipari put the blame on his shoulders, saying he should have scheduled a few easier games to give the Wildcats a chance to build confidence by winning:

But, Cal added that there’s still plenty to play for, as the Wildcats haven’t even started SEC play yet:

Kentucky is scheduled to open SEC action on Jan. 2 in Starkville against Mississippi State. Win that game, and confidence could start to build quickly.
