Kentucky can go 11-1 as well with a better loss in that scenario. Neither will make it with 1 loss tho. To much has to happen.
Exactly...they would rather worry about this and a team tryn to score so they can have some momentum going forward. Not all of us have 20 plus 5 stars on the team. A chance to run a play against a great defense on the road from inside the 5 may be huge for us against Miss st or Tenn. You guys should be over then moon. 7-0 5-0 with the east locked up. You're going to playoffs even with a loss to bama which wont happen anyway but even if. Just enjoy the ride and what you have to watch this year.....and dont worry about keeping track of how many points have been scored against you lol....its not all about UGA but it could be at end of the year.
Yea as a UK fan i dont want to see Daniels Saturday. Stetson could and very well may throw for 300 yds and 3 scores. However, for UK to have even a slimmer of hope they have to sell out for the run or pass. They will choose to sell out to try and stop the run against UGA. Its the only sensible thing to do. With JT in there i believe that takes that option away a bit. Stetson is money for a backup, but as an oppsing teams fan i can tell you we would rather face him. Not to mention our team has played against him and had good success. It dont matter if it was a different year with different teams. That exp is still a mental edge for some of our guys that will make them feel like they can stop this guy if they play their best.
This is the problem Levis has too kinda. Not just sticking with only 2 option on his read bit sometimes if his 1st option is covered he panics and takes off for a negative play. I really dont understand with as much man defense as we have seen why we arent just doing a quick 3 step drop and fade routes deep down the sideline. We have a qb who can throw the ball 80 yds so why not waste a couple plays during the game and try it. Worst case scenario its an interception that works the same as a punt. I feel like we just choose not to throw the deep fade eveb tho we could. We have to try it a few times this weekend because obviously you cant have sustained long drives against UGA. We prolly lead the league in plays of 20 yds or more but we still arent even attempting to hit the explosive pass play. Anyway i just want to stay healthy. Nobody is beating UGA this year. Clemson was the only one with a shot just because it was the 1st game. That ship has sailed. I just want the cats to leave it all on the field and earn UGAs respect. To me 27 to 10 is the best possible scenario for UK. If we do that and dont suffer anymore injuries its a win for us in the end I know UGA has a bunch if injuries as well but we arent Georgia. We dont have 4 and 5 star backups if starters go down. I know you guys have a lot of 3 star under the radar guys too that have developed into good/great players which says a lot about Coach Smart. Good luck this weekend.
I will take that scenario all day long. Would love to play in a new years 6 bowl. It would be the next logical step for our program. It would help recruiting and just help our reputation in the future so we dont end up ranked 11th even tho we are 6-0 in the SEC. We arent gonna come out of nowhere and go from the belk bowl to the SEC championship game. Thats all UGA thid year and i think most UK fans will agree. I would trade a loss to UGA for wins against Miss ST and Tenn to close out the year. If we win those 2 games then we finish 11-1 and there is no way they can deny us a new years 6 bowl.
I cant find any SEC team this century that was 6-0 4-0 that wasnt ranked in the top 10. Ppl say rankings dont matter but it does at UK because we need that exposure and these big games. Plus the higher you are ranked the less you fall after a loss. I gurantee after we lose to the number 1 team in the country on the road we will have the biggest drop of any top 25 team. We will have 2 loss ole miss and arkansas ranked ahead of us. I mean think about how stupid that is lol.
You cant beat a team that has all 11 starters on defense as projected nfl players. It just cant and wont happen. The stars aligned for UGA this year much like how they did for LSU 2 years ago. Both will go down as the 2 greatest teams of this century. As a kentucky fan just having 1 nfl player in the past has coincided with our best seasons. Look at Randall Cobb.....stevie johnson....trevathon....snell and allen and then bowden. Just 1 guy who is nfl caliber and sometimes 2 makes such a difference. UGA has 20 guys that would be drafted tmrw. Its just not possible to beat that. Lsu was beatable their championship year because it was their offense that carried them. Of course they didnt lose, but defense just dont slump and honestly this will prolly be the easiest natty anyone has ever won. This isnt reverse psychology or trying to put a curse on them. They are just that good.
Great. We had some nice depth on the D-line to start the season but a rash of injuries has all but erased that. Now were razor thin going into an important stretch of games.
Have Dog fans ever been less nervous going into a big game than they will be this week? Lol. I know some cat fans will hate me saying this but i feel no pressure in the UGA game. I just want us to come out of the game healthy because a loss dont really change our season. We just need to keep showing up after the UGA game and try to keep getting sec wins and this will be an amazing year as a Cat fan.
Yea im a bit confused as well. As a fellow vet with two 7 month tours in iraq from 03 to 05 I didnt understand that either. Im not sayin the guy is lying or dont wanna disrespect a vet i just hadnt heard of a rotation like that. It could be i was just never exposed to it but it did seem weird. Anyway to reply to the origional comment. No, it is not necessarily a drill that directly correlates to an in game situation. Its more of a drill to get someone confortable with contact and being hit while in pads. Once you do this for a while you become hardened and not afraid of the contact that will happen in a game. Then you can begin working on technique and game sitiuations. Whether its the best way to do this i dont know...im not a coach.
And Kentucky is 8-0 in our last 8 games....a very quiet 8-0 that includes wins over multiple ranked opponents. Thats crazy about Mullen tho. They have played some good teams tho obviously.
Prolly be behind Virginia too lol. Obviously the Gators wont be considered a good win now that we beat them so they cant move us up much. I believe we were the only power 5 school undefeated and not ranked. We still arent very good but i mean we keep winning. Someday maybe we will learn how to throw the ball...not give it away and the offense and defense complimemt each other in the same game. Hopefully its next week against L.S.U. i dont really care about the UGA game. They have a once in a generation defense so a loss there is not really effecting our season i dont think.
Aaaannndddd here we go with the excuses. Kentucky played terrible and won lol. We played the exact way we have all year....terribly....but we won. Btw....this is 8 straight wins for Kentucky.
Not all Gator fans overlooked us, but there are a couple lil p#!&ks on here that i expect to see in this thread saying they were wrong. Lots of BS being thrown at Georgia and Kentucky today from those guys. Again not all you Gator fans did that. Many of you said to not overlook this game. UK played very poorly and still won the game. So even the ole gators dropped a turd is no excuse...Kentucky dropped a bigger turd amd still won. On to LSU still alive in the east. Also..big ups to Arkansas for their turnaround, but them being in the top 10 and UK not even being ranked was a travesty. No 4-0 SEC team should be unranked. Us being unranked only hurts the people we beat. It dont hurt UK.....just my feelings lol.
Should be a good game. Kentucky has quietly won 7 straight games dating back to last season. We arent on the gators level yet but 5 of the last 6 games have been close. Yes we only got 1 win but Florida also got a free down one year to win in overtime against us. Another year we didnt line anyone up over a receiver TWICE! Lol. However, UF is also better than they have been so i really dont know what will happen. If i had to guess id say UK reverts back to what we usually do....curse ourselves with unimaginable bad luck and stupid plays. Hope im wrong.
Thanks jerk lol.
Yea we did...it was a blow out that was never in doubt....we use to do this alot when we sucked...score points late after the other team pulled it's starters and make the score look close. Obviously the defense plays to its competition tho...they have all year and that's dissapointing. The offense still looked bad today in all areas. Stats look good but the film will tell another story. No explosiveness and a 74 yd run don't count honestly. We really need some receivers and they are out there. WR is one spot you do not have to have elite talent from the HS ranks in recruiting. You can find them with scouting and UK needs to stop worrying about stars on a receiver and potential. They need to find guys that are just good route runners and no how to get open not fast guys. There have been plenty of great college receivers that don't run a 4.4 or 4.5 or aren't 6'4.
Lot of this is based on game control and remember until that Auburn game LSU was one of only 5 teams at the time to have a plus point differential on the season along with Bama, gators, UGA and Kentucky....A&M are obviously in the positive now as well. With all SEC games this year that point differential means more than usual since we don't get the cupcakes this year to pad the margin of victory.
Yea idk how you guys will play but the Hogs are a bit overvalued this week just like they were in the A&M game.....although they did get a late cover in that one after A&M pulled some starters. Hogs are such a great story tho and they really are a pretty good football team this year, but I think Gators to cover is fairly safe..with the caviot being the Hogs getting a late score after the game is practically over and UF pulls Trask. Should be safest bet this weekend. Vandy+18 v Uk...vandy plus the points and the over are a good play. Ole Miss-11 v Cocks...Cocks plus points and the under is the 2nd best bet in the SEC this weekend. Only game with any real value tho is the Gators+17 tho. Should be some pretty easy Skittles.
How is stools to high at 6?...you think Eli should be ahead of him since he won 1 game and the cats are 2-4...you do realize UK has a positive point differential still this year against an all SEC schedule? As the writer said this isn't who the best coach this year is...its the best coaches as of now in the SEC overall. Before the season many ppl had Stoops as a top 4 coach in the league as he is the 2nd longest tenured as well. Also most ppl figured he was close to leaving for a bigger school and may still be. It's not been a great season no doubt but they still have been in every game they have played this year. I know it's just an opinion but you just threw out he is ranked to high im curious to the reasoning or if it's just recentcy bias?
I don't know brother.....UK does those things pretty well and we still suck lol. Of course if we had LSU offensive talent we might not.
Mark Stoops comments on Joey Gatewood’s performance, UK’s inability to pass the ball downfield after Georgia loss
UK defense has allowed 43 points in their last 4 games. Uk defense has scored 18 points in their last 4 games. UK is one of only 5 teams in the SEC to have a plus point differential on the season,*and they have played 6 games which is the most in the league *tied with Auburn. UK last 2 opponents were coming off a bye where as UK has now played 6 straight weeks of SEC games. UK is 2-4 UK has now been overvalued by Vegas in 1 game...Mizzou....and has been undervalued 1 game...UGA. 3 strongest bets this season have been... Mizzou+5 v UK UK v UGA / under Texas A&M -14 v Arkansas. Those are the only 3 games I've picked on SDS this year...all verifiable lol....if you read comments. Any gamblers out there that are patient....keep an eye out...no sec games next week as of now with real value on future odds unless covid changes depth charts.
Only 4 teams in the entire league as of now will have a plus score differential for the season. Alabama, Georgia, Florida and Kentucky...Auburn will have a positive diff but LSU will go to negative...shows how crazy the all league schedule is.
You guys -12.5 are the safest bet in the league this weekend. Hogs are so much better than what ppl expected but also way overvalued even getting double digits......if they don't force 3 or more turnovers they will lose by 3 scores...31-13
Only games I would touch are: Georgia v Kentucky/ under A&M -12.5 over hogs is pretty safe. Hogs are a great story but way overvalued this week similar to UK last week against Mizzou.
Week 5 SEC Primer: Another year, another wipeout looms. Is Tennessee vs. Alabama even a rivalry anymore?
Lol...i love your confidence in my cats but no way that happens....dont trust in the Vegas line man...we are way overvalued this week and should be the underdog. My heart says go Cats but if I was a betting man it say Mizzou covers and wins outright 34-10.
Missouri football: Let’s hope Tigers benefitted from unplanned week off before facing surging Kentucky
I'm wondering the same thing about Mizzu....did they find their offense against a bad LSU team. It's hard to believe LSU could be that bad but if they are I think the Cats have a chance. I would say you guys are the favorite in my book as of now. I love the Cats but we still have a bad offense that just won't stick to running the ball the way we should. Feels like a 31-13 type game for Mizzu.
Yea you guys def have a shot in fact I'm surprised we are favorites....the only way I could see my cats winning this game would be if LSU really is just that bad. We won't be able to drop the line backers as much since you guys can run the ball for sure. We've had some success against Mizzu lately but it's always a toss up I think.
