Video: Mark Stoops Does Not Think Kentucky Players Believed They Could Beat Georgia

If Kentucky was ever going to grab a win over SEC East power Georgia, Saturday seemed like a great opportunity. With Nick Chubb out, the quarterback situation unsettled, and questions rising about Mark Richt's job security, the Bulldogs looked to be as unsettled as ever. Instead of pulling the upset, Kentucky dropped the game 27-3.

Today, head coach Mark Stoops was asked if his team believed it could beat Georgia. Most coaches would probably be annoyed by the question and the implication. Stoops was quite frank and honest with his answer.

Kentucky is definitely more competitive and talented under Stoops, but the 'Cats have really struggled in games where they've tried to get over the hump in conference.
