LEXINGTON, Ky. — Kentucky has given up 35 points to New Mexico State at halftime, and coach Mark Stoops is understandably unhappy.
Unhappy might be putting it mildly. In his halftime interview with SEC Network, Stoops said, “We’re playing horrific defense.”
Stoops doesn't sugar-coat it in SEC Network halftime interview: "We're playing horrific defense." Correct.

UTEP and New Mexico held New Mexico State to fewer points for an entire game than UK did during the first half. The Aggies have 345 yards of offense.
All of this comes on the heels of Stoops saying he would be “much more involved” on defense this week.
