I think that is really because in the SEC just about anyone has the potential to beat anyone on the schedule. This conference is filled with great teams. Unless your Arkansas or Vanderbilt. No offense to either team, they are just behind everyone else at this point. Playing a conference only schedule, upsets are bound to happen. We will probably see a lot of them this year.
im not saying Carolina couldn't pull off the win, but your position breakdown is certainly interesting. Kentucky had the number #2 pass defense in the country last season and returned everyone. Ill Give you LB and we can call DL even. although I think UK has the edge in DL depth this year. I really dont think Carolina will be built well enough on defense to keep up with the UK ground game this year. I think it will be a good game, but I see UK grinding the ball in the second half against a winded defense that has been on the field too long. We will see though. I live in SC actually and root for the cocks as long as they arent playing my cats. Im looking forward to the game
care to elaborate , because that seems like wishful thinking based on whats returning for each team..
i mean lets be honest, even if that was him ( which its not).... its not like its gonna help your defense stop him, so ya might wanna bite your tongues lol
Not a big shock , nor is it a problem . We are recruiting at a higher level than we have in years past . Some kids have been recruited over , and those kids want to play , so they transfer . Best of luck to all these young men . Thanks for being part of big blue nation .
If we are talking favorites to watch, I loved watching Jared Lorenzon at UK . The hefty lefty was epic .
I mean someone still needs to block for him, dont expect the kid to carry team alone. Carolina needs to improve upfront on the offensive line to move the ladder in the east.
There is no double standard here, because no female commentator ( to my knowledge)has ever made those kinds of comments about a student athlete.
very creepy. some of these STUDENTS are 18-19 years old. They also deserve to be able to compete without being sexualized by men old enough to be their dads. Forget a suspension, this guy needs to be fired. He made it very clear on air he gets a different kind of thrill calling womens sports for reasons outside the game.
Also recruiting rankings aren't everything , see mark stoops
I have no love for UT , bit you sir are the epitome of a negative Nancy ... UT is absolutely progressing . Their recruiting is top 20 in the country . Than translates later on to wins . Are they at UF or UGA level yet , no . But Pruitt has then playing to a level now that they believe they can win . That is the difference . Never thought I'd be on here defending UT .
Didnt know A&M, Arksanas, and UK got kicked out of the
Sec East BOLD predicitions South carolina-goes 5-7, gets throttled by clemson. Muschamp fired after the season. Tennessee- Pruitt turns the corner and goes 9-3 and a trip to a decent bowl game for a chance at a 10th win. Mizzou- lack of depth spells doom for the tigers. Defense can't stop anyone. Finishes 2-6 in conference with wins over Vandy and Arkansas. a loss at BYU costs them bowl eligibility and they finish 5-7. Georgia- Newman struggles early in new offense, but gets better after first couple games. strong defense has them undefeated going into the game with Florida. Florida edges them out in a close one and Georgia loses 1 more to either Tennessee or @ Kentucky in an upset. finishes 10-2 (BOLD PREDICTIONS) Kentucky- I'll try to be unbiased here. Returning a ton of starters and contributors from last years 8 win season on both sides of the ball. Terry Wilson returning at qb after injury. Kentucky once again proves difficult to stop on the ground, and a solid defense. Finishes 9-3 after upsetting Auburn on the road in week 5 . 5th straight bowl appearance for stoops and co. Florida-schedule lines up nicely for a great season. After a tough fought win against LSU, UF slips up and loses to Ole Miss on the road. They rebound and beat UGA after the bye week and clinch the east at 11-1. Vanderbilt-with no talent to speak of returning, Mason finds himself in hot water early in week 4 after losing to colorado state. things dont get better from there and Vandy finishes winless in conference. Mason is let go after getting mollywhopped by UT in the last game of the year.
Will Mizzou fans ever not predict beating UK ? UK returning more than almost anybody in the east , and we have beaten Mizzou 5 in a row... Wouldn't chalk that up as a win for you until they can prove otherwise .
i dont think at all that he would have been a heisman finalist. I do agree we would have won at LEAST 1-2 more games had we been running this offense all season, or at least after Terrry Wilson went down. Most likely would have pulled out the Miss State and Carolina games would be my guess. I think its a no brainer he would be the leading rusher in the conference though, considering he has ran for over 1,100 in 6 games. I think he is averaging close to 10.0 ypc, which is nuts. That said, Florida should be in front of Auburn and Bama on this list.
Gonna have to figure out something on offense next with mizzou coming to Lexington. I like our defense and run game, but we need to be able to keep their defense at least somewhat honest. A couple of big plays helped UGA pull away in this one in the third quarter. Im not at all disappointed with the effort, especially considering the game conditions.
all of our games coming up will be at home, other than at Vandy. Props to Mason on the win over Mizzou, but I still think UK will have too much talent for them in Nashville. Home games against Mizzou next week, UT, and Louisville are now crucial. I think Kentucky will probably win 2 out of three and finish 7-5. 6-6 is certainly possible. Losing Terry Wilson in game 2 I think really limited the potential of this team. A 4th straight bowl appearance would still be a great accomplishment for this program.
I agree with you actually paris, there isnt any point in worrying about what UK would do in this given scenario until its an actual reality. Given how bad we have been historically, im more concerned about at least making a bowl game every year, with the possibility of a special season or two every few years. As long as we are building the program with winning seasons each year, I am happy.
I think you would get mixed responses. Some fans would be perfectly content with regular 9 win season, with every few years getting 10, maybe 11 wins. After awhile you will have alot of fans clamoring for more and making the occasional sec championship game. If your your winning consistently like this though, and have the occasional 10-2 or 11-1 type years, your more than likely going to be competing for the east so I think the problem takes care of itself here.
Agreed , dumb question by the reporter. Im still optimistic about the season, and the game, with Sawyer. That said, I would 100 percent like to be starting Wilson for this game if we could.
I think we can do away with this weekly update. They arent in the conference anymore, best of luck, but I can see what they do on sports center. Lets keep things on the SEC here.
Unless they want to pay another buy out to another coach, I think you need to give him time. Look how well it has paid off for Kentucky. Our AD was very patient with stoops through his first few seasons as head coach, and coupled it with exciting built in raises for when he found success. If you look at some of the details, its one of the best crafted contracts in the conference. They showed loyalty to stoops and gave him ample time to build. The problem is that the expectations are entirely different at UT than they are at UK because UK has always been historically bad. UT is desperate for at least some success right off the bat, because they have been waiting for so long. That makes it a very tough job. First time head coaches need time, so give him some. Unless they lose to Chattanooga next week, in which case it may appear that he has already lost this team and would need to be shown the door.
really bummed about terry. I hope he has a speedy recovery. Luckily Our running game still looks very solid, and our offensive line looks to be top tier. I think Smith will be serviceable enough for us to still have a great season. Was a great pick up for us in the off season to get a guy with great starting experience. This will be a step up in competition from what he saw at troy, but the guy can play. He was the mvp of the dollar general bowl last year where he threw 4 tds. Big test next week with florida coming to town.
I think it was a minor team infraction, nothing serious
I was actually more impressed with Williams than I thought I was going to be. He didnt play perfect by any stretch, but he was under pressure and running for his life the entire game. His offensive line are the ones who need some tough coaching right now. Miami looked like the may have some real play makers, but it wont matter if that line doesnt get it together, quickly.
Great addition for 2020. Our 2020 recruiting class is coming along nicely as well. Love the job stoops and co. are doing right now. I doubt he seeks a waiver, but will like likely step into a starting role right away next year.
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.
