I think we have “good enough” talent at WR. Today showed it... it’s amazing how easy it is to move the ball on simple dig and crossing routes. It was nice to actually see those types of plays being called. I think Harris, Oliver and Drennen are all solid, young dude receivers who can make a difference in the coming years so long as Stoops puts a little slack in Gran’s leash. Low and behold, it makes the run game more affective too.
My dad died of cancer in July. I second this.
Mark Stoops shares the latest on Kentucky’s starting QB role following an update to the team’s depth chart
I love Terry Wilson. I’ve always defended him and given him way more credit then most UK fans I know. It’s easy for me to recognize that this isn’t all on him, Gran’s play calling has won us some big games at times, bit left us looking horrible more often than not. But I think I’m ready to see Joey Gatewood. He seems to have more upside.
LSU made KJ Costello look like a Heisman contender. If I were to judge off of the maturation of UK’s OLine v. Missouri’s DLine from last year- I believe that will be the difference. That thing got ugly in a hurry last season. Gash after gash.
Kentucky’s Center, Drake Jackson, should be on this list.
It’s a precious thing. Congrats young man.
Anyone who watched Louisville playing outside of the All Clemson Conference last season when Kentucky absolutely thrashed them knows that they’re overrated. That team wasn’t much different than the team who only win 2 games a season before... the only difference was that the ACC was in worse shape.
As a lifelong (32yrold) Kentucky Football fan who, as sacrilegious as it may be, has always cherished the sport of football over basketball, who has sat through the many of ebbs and a few of the flows I’ve got to say this: 2020 being a cluster-f**k makes perfect sense for Kentucky Football. I’m sorry if that sounds insensitive, but it’s just how the universe has done UK most of my life. I have been talking about 2020 for the last 3-4 years as being THE year. No, not winning the East or anything, but being the year that springboards Kentucky into a future East contender for years to come. We’re bringing back one of the best defenses we’ve ever fielded, a defense that’s experienced, deep and well-coached. We’re bringing back arguably one of the best offensive lines in the country, with an under appreciated triple headed backfield, and a 12-3 dual threat QB. But maybe most importantly we’re bringing back coaching continuity, and a scrappy head coach who has learned how to field winning teams exclusively at this program. This is Mark Stoops’ team. His toughness courses through these guys’ veins. Under normal circumstances, I was seeing 11-2 all over this season. Falling short to UGA and UT, just missing the championship game. Dad and I talked about this team for a long while. He loved watching this core’s work in the trenches on both sides. “Smash mouth. They just run at you and they don’t even try to hide it!” He’d say. He was diagnosed with a rare cancer on June 15th. I woke up the morning the July 4th to find he had passed away laying next to me... This everything about this year has been well beyond as horrible as I ever imagined life could get. I hope we get football, I think this country needs something other than all of the dread we see everyday to look at, to feel hopeful and dream about. But what’ll suck is no matter what this season will have an asterisk next to it if we even get it... Go cats.
LSU v. Louisville would be an absolute bloodbath
I wasn't knocking Florida.
Chalk says Kentucky goes 9-4 next season, with the opportunity to flip either Florida or UT.
I'm willing to be that Louisville doesn't improve their record next season. Their success this season was more about how disconnected Bobby Petrino was, not how good Satterfield is.
At least UT won their bowl game.
How did Virginia get 28 votes after losing to Florida?
How in the world would you pre-rank Louisville in the top 25? Kentucky ran them off of the field and is returning like 90% of their starters.
New video angle raises doubts about Kash Daniel’s explanation of alleged dirty play against Kyle Trask
What a dumb move. Suspend him. Sorry, not sorry.
Paris, I’ve been leaving you alone lately, because you’re really not worth it- but I’ve just got to ask, why? Why do you get on here to drag Kentucky through the mud non-stop? If you don’t like the AD, and you don’t like the coaches, that’s one thing. But for you to come on here and talk crap about the players. Dead players like Jared. Some of best players ever like Josh Allen- that’s how I know you’re not really a Kentucky fan. Some people on here might think you are, but there isn’t an ACTUAL UK fan out there who hates Allen, or would make fun of Jared Lorenzen. I’m really sorry your cardinals stink, but that isn’t Kentucky’s fault, that’s Bobby, Rick and Tom’s fault. Move on.

Paris, y'all doing great, huh?
7 or 8-ish not too shabby after losing everything we're losing. 2020 season with Seniors Wilson, Bowden, Ali, Rose, Jackson, Young, Fortner, Watkins all on offense Seniors Bohanna, Boogie Watson, Looney, Josh Paschal, Corker, Robinson, Hoskins on the defense I'm antcipating, and I could be wrong, a BIG season in 2020. 10 wins again at least.
A Kentucky assistant said reporters should be fired for wrong predictions, but his frustration is misplaced
Connor, Remember when you said Penn State over Kentucky was the easiest pick of the bowl season?
With the Heisman winning QB in 2016, Louisville padded 3 wins against Marshall, Murray, and Charlotte, and couldn't even win 10 games. Go home, Paris.
Have your popcorn ready. Get ready to hear a lot of "Wilson finds Bowden deep"
We return pretty much the same OL along with adding former ALL-SEC Landon Young who was out all last season. Our running backs are arguably more versatile and are certainly deeper this season. We will have a running game that every SEC Defense will have to worry about.
Florida is likely losing in Lexington this year, so... yeah. I mean I guess they're going to beat everyone else in the East this year?
No, it's sort of like going: 2013 2-10 2014 5-7 2015 5-7 2016 7-6 2017 7-6 2018 10-3 So it kind like, sorta like, actually like, factually happened. It's not like your daddy, Bobby Petrino saying Louisville will beat Alabama and then getting blown out.
Bratton is just mad the UT isn't on the list
4-star lineman Justin Rogers commits to Kentucky, poised to become Mark Stoops’ highest-rated signee
He is a 5 star per Rivals and ESPN
Unless it's Louisville. No one goes to Louisville.
Good news about the Wildcats. Haters are notably absent.
