What really worries me is that this is a young team that has no killer instinct. Cal even said as much last night after the game. Once they get up by 15 or so, they start to coast and that is when teams make runs that get them back into the game. By all rights Kentucky should have won by about 20 last night.
I'm worried that every game before they play Tennessee is going to be a trap game.
I wouldn't worry too much about losing a lead on the road. I kinda expect a conference team at home to come back. Especially when they a pretty good team like Florida. I was impressed by the way they didn't panic when they lost that lead. Most very young teams, like UK, will panic on the road and just fold in that type of run UF had. But they rose up and put Florida away. I thought that showed a lot of maturity. Maturity beyond their experience too.
