It's been a tough season so far for Mark Stoops and his new staff in year one at Kentucky.
No one said it would be any easier...and it looks to just keep getting harder as the weeks grind on.

Stoops brought Eliot up from Florida State to man the ship on 'D' and so far he likes what he's seeing out his his first-time DC.
Hear from Stoops on Eliot in the video.
