yall say this every year.... Maybe this is the year for USC, but I doubt it.
Kelly Bryant is a bit too high. He could certainly make this list, but I wouldn't say he has proved he is better than Jake Bentley at this point. He was surrounded with talent at Clemson, and mostly still only completed short yard passing plays. Ill be interested to see him in Dooleys offense. I think he will be good for sure, but Mizzou will be good more because of the running game than because of KB in my opinion.
I don't like to feed trolls, but man your life must be so sad. You are on here all the time with this nonsense. On almost every article. You aren't fooling anyone..
Wow this did not sit well with some people lol. 9-3 and a bowl win would be a good season. Seems to be the Kentucky loss bothering most people. Historically, one would say its unlikely that they lose 2 straight to UK. Realistically, Id say its possible. Kentucky is more physical on the Oline and should run the ball well. Its also a home game and will be a tough atmosphere, UK will be hyped. Im not predicting it will happen for sure, but I expect a good game. Could go either way in my opinion. Some of yall are acting like he just slapped your Mom with that prediction though. He may have missed on a few of the wins and losses, but I agree that 9-3 is probably where they end up. If they can swing a couple of the toss up game, 10 or 11 wins is also possible. But then again so is 8-4.
Someone is salty..
I think Terry is going to have a very solid year. Next Year should really light it up. If he actually throws a very nice deep ball, and with his speed should be a real threat to any defense if he has developed in his decision making. Especially with RPO's. Dude has all the right tools, only thing left is to put it on the field.
Someone's getting cocky...see what I did there ;) . Guess we will just have to see what happens. Kentucky's biggest defensive strength is against the run since we have a solid front 7 returning, however we are VERY inexperienced in the secondary. Carolina's best shot at winning will require a good outing from Bentley. If Carolina can manage to run the ball somewhat decently against us and keep the defense honest, that will open things up a lot for Bentley. I live in SC and always pull for Carolina as long as they aren't playing UK. Looking forward to watching the game at W.B. this fall
Agreed Weagle. This list will likely look a lot different. I may be a bit biased as UK fan, but I am a bit surprised not to see Lynn Bowden on this list.
Really surprised anyone decided to write this article, but I have been thinking the exact same thing. He looked great in the spring, and the offense seemed to be much more open. He did play very timid at times last year, some of that could have been injury, but I think a lot of it was game plan. With our run game and defense last year I think they had Terry on a pretty short leash when it came to taking chances. His talent and upside are through the roof. He will have a few decent receivers ( 1 great one with Lynn Bowden), a solid offense line, and three good backs to help him along this season. Factor in his speed, which is elite for any position, he could make opposing defenses really frustrated. I think Terry makes a big stride in year 2, year 3 he is going to be really dangerous. Given the schedule, I think 8-4 or 9-3 is what to expect and a top 25 ranking in 2019, at worst 7-5 and a trip to the music city bowl. Go Cats.
SDS needs to be contacted about this kotex10. Maybe they can remove him from the site, either that, or block him from commenting. We are here to converse about our favorite teams, and ignoring this troll is getting very annoying.
Dylangeorge. We do not feed the troll with attention. Everyone ignores paris10 and his comments. Don't let him get under your skin bro. Exciting things are happening in lexington, and that is torture enough for him.
alot to be optimistic about this upcoming season. Schedule is very manageable, and the offense should be a bit more open this season. Looking forward to watching the cats again this fall!
agreed. With that schedule anything less than 6 would be surprising given the schedule. Im thinking 7-5 as well, with a chance for an 8th in a bowl game. a couple of toss up games on the schedule does create the potential for another great year though. We will have to see who steps up.
This upcoming team has a lot more depth than years past. Plenty of veterans to help lead this team that will hopefully fill the void left behind by last years seniors. The big question mark will be in the secondary, where we were very good last year. Obviously Snell and Allen will be tough to replace, but there are some talented guys in place that will step up. Given our schedule, this team will definitely be bowling next. anywhere between 6 and 9 wins next year. AJ rose will emerge as solid premier running back. Go cats
I think Lynn Bowden could be in this list come end of next season. He will be the hands down top target on a team who probably won't rely as heavily on the run with snell gone. I expect him to get a lot of touches, in a variety of different way. He is very similar to randall cobb in terms of versatility.
no bama or uga...A&M and MSU both ranked #12...Also pretty sure UK beat the fist 3 teams you mentioned and finished second in the east with a better record. There , helped you out a bit. Did you even think about this before you posted it lol?
South Carolina football: What’s gone wrong during 4-game Kentucky losing streak and, more important, can Gamecocks fix it?
wow. Somebody is buying their own pre-season hype a bit too much. Im expecting a good game, but to call them frauds is pretty shocking. Our resume is a lot more impressive than USCjr btw. You beat a decent Vandy team, thats its....Guess we will find out Saturday...
Honestly Tua and the tide offense has been so good so far that its actually allowed Jalen to play in every game so far. And we aren't talking garbage time in the 4th qtr. With how much he is playing you guys might wanna start adding him into the list as well haha. I think hed place somewhere around 6 or 7.
you might seriously be the most annoying troll on the internet...
Liking our schedule for next season a lot. We will likely lose benny to the NFL after this season, but will be returning some good backs and a more mature Terry wilson with plenty of good receivers. I think 8-4 or maybe 9-3 with next years schedule should be more than possible. Go Cats.
just checked out the full list..florida at #26, and Kentucky at #42? Not sure what espn is smoking.. Not being biased since im UK fan, but that doesn't add up to me.
Next week vs Miss. State looks like it could be a very good game. Should be a huge test for our defense. Lexington will be rocking for sure! Go Cats!
I like Wilson getting the start in game 1. I fully expect to see Hoak getting action as well. If Terry Wilson can be a dynamic player, and give us big play ability, that might be exactly what gets UK over in some close games this year. I like the call here
also the music city bowl loves UK (close proximity equals ticket sales) so the safest pick is uk heading back to nashville lol.
i think clemson fans would probably be a bit surprised by this list given their recent history... Also, Im sorry, but Im thinking people are way over hyping Mizzou this year. They have a lot of talent returning and a lot to be exited for after the way this finished last year, but they still have some big time holes. I do not see them getting to the outback bowl at all. 8 wins would be a great season for the imo. There is also a lot of parity in the east right now after UGA who is head and shoulders at the top. I think UF, Mizzou, SC, and UK are all pretty evenly matched at this point. The results of the past few seasons would also mirror that point...
Im going to just start ignoring all things written by paris10 because its obvious that he is not really a uk fan based on his comments on all things kentucky related. That being said I feel pretty good about our qb situation. Both Hoak and Wilson are talented guys that could lead us to a solid season in my opinion. They lack experience at the sec level, but they are certainly talented enough to compete. I agree with stoops that getting them both game reps early in the season will be key to find out who "the man" is going to be. Hopefully one of them shines bright in the season opener to carry some momentum down to florida in week 2
It should be taken into consideration I agree. Snell has proved plenty capable receiving out of the backfield, just didnt get thrown that many passes. Kentucky doesn't throw alot to the running backs, and when they do they usually throw to King since he is more of the "speedster" type back. Don't think that should have been the deciding factor. Wasn't aware of KJ missing the first two games either. Overall I could easily see how you could make the case for either player. Personally I think Benny had the best regular season, while you could argue KJ was the best overall offensive player
edit, he will have at least 2 more games. Possibility for 3
