The University of Kentucky's problems with special teams took on new dimensions Saturday when the Wildcats surrendered both kickoff and punt return touchdowns in a 63-31 loss to Georgia.

Special teams coach Craig Naivar talked with the media after the game, saying allowing a 90-yard return of the opening kickoff "set the tone for the game."

Scroll down to watch the video interview with Naivar, as well as interviews with defensive coordinator D.J. Eliot, offensive coordinator Neal Brown and senior defensive lineman Alvin "Bud" Dupree.
