LEXINGTON Ky. — Coach Mark Stoops is aware of Kentucky’s 29-game losing streak to Florida, but that doesn’t mean he’s happy to talk about it.
The Wildcats coach spoke Wednesday afternoon on the SEC teleconference, saying the streak doesn’t mean anything to his team as they play at 3:30 p.m. Saturday in Gainesville, Fla. — a place UK hasn’t won since 1979.
“I think each season each and every team is totally different from another,” Stoops said. “The fact that we played Florida well the past two games and the fact the we played ’em well two years ago when we went down there means nothing to us. I’m concerned about our games and you look at the mistakes and the tendencies that you’ve played with, but the past 30 years have nothing to do with us and this team. Really not concerned with it at all.
“We’re really worried about this week,” he continued. “We have enough to worry about with Kentucky and our team and getting any mistakes cleaned up and technique, assignments cleaned up and just work on ourselves. We know we’re playing a very good team. To answer your question, no, we’re not worried about the last 30 years. No.”
