LEXINGTON, Ky. — How quickly the worm turns. On the latest episode of Wildcat Country, your daily Kentucky podcast presented by SEC Country, host Curtis Burch and beat writer Joe Mussatto discuss the aftermath of a last-seconds football loss to Ole Miss.

Everybody seems to be angry about something, including coach Mark Stoops, and the guys cover those hot-button issues and more:

  • There was a lot of talk in Stoops’ Monday press conference about why he and the staff did or didn’t do certain things against the Rebels, especially why they didn’t take more time off the clock on the Cats’ go-ahead TD drive late. This line of question, which continued Monday night on his call-in show, has Stoops stewin’.
  • The latest on punter Matt Panton, a grad transfer who has been a huge improvement over last season for UK, and his suspension following a public intoxication arrest Saturday night. A promising freshman could have to burn his redshirt in the 10th game of the season because of it.
  • There were a few moves on the Cats’ depth chart, one of which leaves a starting cornerback spot that has been in flux … still in flux. And we get a quick injury update on star QB Stephen Johnson.
  • Switching gears to basketball, Curtis and Joe talk about recent scholarship offers to Class of 2018 guard Tyler Herro and big man Moses Brown as the early signing period begins this week.
  • ESPN ranked the top 50 college basketball players and included only one Wildcat: Hamidou Diallo. So did the guys making that list forget that Kevin Knox plays for Kentucky?
  • Another installment of “Get to Know Joe” shares with listeners what Mr. Mussatto forgot after the Ole Miss game.
