LEXINGTON - After Kentucky lost 49-0 to LSU last year, receiver Dicky Lyons confidently guaranteed that the Cats would beat Mississippi State.
While Kentucky coach Rich Brooks didn't like Lyons' brash prediction, UK did win and save its season.
So does Lyons have anything to predict or guarantee about UK's upcoming game at Vanderbilt on Saturday or games with Georgia or Tennessee following the Cats disappointing loss to Mississippi State on Oct. 27?
"If they (the players) want to listen to me, they can. But you know a loss is a loss. You can't dwell on it. You have to throw this one back and take the anger you feel out on the next team you play," Lyons said.
"That's what we did last year at Mississippi State. Now we have to do it again. I know I want payback for playing so bad. I want to get out there and play hard and get to feeling better."
