The Wildcats are in danger of making some bad history this season.

Kentucky's men's basketball team lost again on Saturday. The Wildcats fell to Texas A&M, 85-74.

This was UK's third loss in a row. Kentucky had previously lost to Missouri and Tennessee.

John Calipari's team is now 17-8 on the season. They're 6-6 in the SEC.

Kentucky's finish to the regular season is a tough one. The Wildcats play at No. 8 Auburn on Wednesday. Games remain against Alabama, Arkansas, Missouri, Ole Miss and Florida.

Coach Cal's team is in danger of finishing the regular season with a losing SEC record. That hasn't happened in a while.

It hasn't happened in nearly 30 years, actually. The last time Kentucky finished with a losing league record?

1988-89. That was Eddie Sutton's last season.

There's still a long way to go and Kentucky remains very talented. Previous Coach Cal-led Kentucky teams have struggled in the regular season only to make a deep run in the NCAA Tournament.

Maybe that will be the case with this year's team. Or, maybe, they're just not that good and they'll finish with a losing record.

Stay tuned...
