The football Cats hung with Louisville but hanging doesn't equal winning and that means the same result in the record books for Kentucky...a loss.
27-13 may look better on paper, but it doesn't help the program get back to bowl eligibility. Being competitive is nice, but only if it eventually translates into upsets and wins.
Right now, the Cats have a bye week and get to heal up after a tough test against a top ten team in the 'Ville.
Max Smith didn't throw today but Mark Stoops says he'll be good for next week. Donte Rumph didn't practice but is also to be back for Florida.
And everyone together for that one, will need to play even tougher than before.
Hear from Stoops in the video on needing more heart from his players.
