It's safe to say that Kentucky Wildcats football star Kash Daniel is not a fan of preseason predictions heading into the 2019 season.

The Wildcats are coming off an impressive 2018 season, as UK went 10-3, but the analysts aren't as high on Mark Stoops' team heading into 2019.

The over/under win total for Kentucky has been set at 6 games.

Kentucky star Kash Daniel was asked about the preseason projections on Wednesday. He had a strong response.

"They're just a bunch of jackasses, who cares," Daniel replied. "ESPN, CBS, NBC...I don't care. The season starts in August and we'll see how it goes."

OK then.

Kentucky is set to open its 2019 season on Saturday, Aug. 31.

The Wildcats are taking on Toledo to open the year. The game is set to kick off at noon E.T. on SEC Network.
