Baylor snapped Kentucky's 55-game home winning streak

John Calipari's Kentucky squad is in unfamiliar territory early into the 2012-13 college basketball season. Serving as the nation's defending champions after winning the 2012 NCAA title, this new bunch of Wildcats appears to be far away from the glory days of March.

The team played well in early contests versus Maryland and Duke, but struggled mightily in their first road contest against Notre Dame and were run out of the gym 64-50. After a quick two-day turnaround, Cal's Cats were derailed by the Baylor Bears and snapped the country's longest home winning streak at 55 games.

Who is most to blame for this 4-3 start to the season? There are plenty of culprits to point fingers at, and that is exactly what this piece will do. The following slides count down the five biggest culprits for Kentucky's early-season struggles from 5-1, so read on and leave your comments below!
