Here is a sampling of some of the reaction on Twitter on Saturday as Kentucky lost 88-58 at Tennessee:

ESPN analyst Dick Vitale (@DickieV) — Two words summarize the day 4 the loyal passionate fans of BBN =UGLY-PAINFUL!

UK player Willie Cauley Stein (@WCS15timefor9) — I absolutely LOVE our die hard fans! Always got our backs even if we do lose.....badly #BBN

Former UK player Rex Chapman (@rexchapman) — Lol. This UK/Tenn is such a laugher that the network decided to stop showing it and put on Marquette/Pitt. Thx CBS. Put me out of my misery.

CBS analyst Seth Davis (@SethDavisHoops) — Only upside for Kentucky right now is maybe Goodwin and Poythress will realize they're not ready for the NBA. Not even close.

Cougar Town actor Josh Hopkins (@MrJosh Hopkins) — Make it stop.

Actress Ashley Judd (@AshleyJudd) — Sigh. My team is getting licked. #BBN

A.J. Nance (@Mr_Nance47) — Not to worry #bbn football season is right around the corner

WKYT Sports anchor Lee K. Howard (@HowardWKYT) — There are one of two ways to respond to adversity. That was option two. Let's hope these Wildcats get it together and turn it around! #UK.

WDRB Sports columnist Eric Crawford (@ericcrawford) — I sat in this same spot and watched Jodie Meeks score 54 on Tennessee in 2009. Wondering if #UK's team will get to 54 today. 7 FGs, 9 TOs. writer Justin Roland (@RowlandRivals) — On the bright side for #UK, #Cats should contend for No. 9 next year. Great thing about Cal: If it doesn't work, start from scratch.
