One more tidbit to account for is losing your regular season ticket seats. Many fans (including myself) would move from very nice lower level seats to the upper decks. This will be a deal breaker for many fans.
You’re not Arkansas or even Missouri, but it is long past time to make a head coaching change.
Once again the Buckeyes are undefeated going into December. Next thing they will be clamoring for an actual CFP spot.
I was thinking the same thing. It’s as if they practice on asphalt parking lots. Maybe someone in their analytics group can do a deep dive into the data.
He would be 2nd or 3rd string for Week 1. QB1 is Terry Wilson. QB2 for that week could be Sawyer Smith.
Agreed, I see Florida winning by three touchdowns. It’s hard enough being a first year coach, but having guys miss 2 weeks of practice due to CoVid will handicap any staff.
UK hosts Ole Miss in Week 2. That’s a very experienced group (staff and players) going against a new coaching staff. If the Rebels have starters missing practice already, then Kiffin could be in for a rough start.
Gann (and other rooster fans), how do you feel about Muschamp at this point? Does he get a pass with an all conference schedule this year? A lot of teams could be pretty solid and still end up with 4-6, 5-5, and 6-4 records. UK has a very experienced group, but could easily land at the 4-6 mark.What’s the threshold for Muschamp to stay employed given “unprecedented” circumstances?
I thought this virus was a joke at one point, then my mom (53) landed in an ICU in April. Opinions shift the closer it hits to home. Before this is over, all of us will know someone who has suffered severely in health. The other side is also true. The economic impact will be far more expansive than the roughly 60% of us that will eventually contract the disease. Oh but the vaccines! Yes, the vaccines. The first one out will be from Moderna. A company that has never been able to commercialize a single product to date will be the one to save us all. Keep in mind the flu vaccine, which we have decades of research for, is only 20-50% effective each year. We need a magic a bullet to restore American confidence even if it is a placebo.
I was shocked looking back at the stat line. Neither team had a fumble or interception. Only turnover on downs. Although, I had a great view on our muffed punt and swear Arkansas recovered that one.
It’s not what was said that I picked up on. It was eye contact.
What matters more is Wins and Losses. In that same timeframe he is 19-12 (7-6,10-3, 2-3). Maybe he owes his job to a historically incredible defense, but we don’t fire coaches that have a 61% win rate. That is 7.32 wins a year which, as you know, is enough to keep your position at UK. I’d like to see us in 2nd place in the SEC East this year, but we don’t have a QB. We lost Terry, lost Hoak and Clark in the offseason, lost Scalzo before the season started, and the grad transfer we have is duct taped together. With Bowden, we’re on QB6 in the SEC. This year is over. Our best bet is to increase the snaps for the younger guys at all positions and hope we can continue to build on that with additional bowl practices. It’s not going to be a good bowl, but we need the practices.
It’ll be interesting to see how both these teams respond coming off bye weeks after a horrendous start. Both teams have been so inept at times that I could see each side blowing out the other or, more than likely, a one possession game. In regards to UK’s QB, there’s smoke pointing to Lynn Bowden taking over the reigns to start the game. He is probably our best chance to win on Saturday, but the offense would be highly predictable. The weather forecast for Saturday is rainy with a high of 60 and low of 36. Ball security could be the difference here. In the event of rain, I think I would actually want Walker Wood out there. Sawyer Smith can have the job back as soon as he is healthy. Finally, this won’t be a true road game environment. A slow start with a 7:30pm kickoff on a cold night is a recipe for a low attendance.
We’re not Georgia! We will always have 1 FCS school until they change the rule. Louisville historically has peaks and valleys and as long as that series continues to be renewed we will continue to schedule two teams from MAC, Conference USA, etc.
Why expedite the decision? As long as they wait on individual player cases, I’m not surprised here. They just need to inform the league before the SEC Championship game
It definitely appears to be an honest mistake. On a positive note, that is a whole lot of free and highly valuable publicity for the organization and its cause. If they follow this up with mental health articles, then Hilinski Hope may have a much bigger audience and footprint.
Thanks for posting Barnett’s name. I googled him and nothing came up about the incident, but that #8 jersey looked familiar. He found a new home at USF which was probably a good thing to do for a young man. Hopefully, he made the most of a fresh start.
Arrow, It probably was that type of conversation with the one caveat that if he got caught again Stoops wouldn’t have a choice but to set an example. Kash is a senior, so it likely won’t happen again. It’ll be a different player. One that expects the same leniency that is set by this precedent. Stoops himself is high character, but he isn’t going to hold players to Army/Navy standards. Not in this league.
Let’s call it like it is. At every other school, he would be playing the next week too.
I wish I had that footage! It’s irrelevant in this case, but one of these is a dirty play and the other is criminal assault. My point of bringing that up is to highlight the hypocrisy in what is acceptable regardless of collegiate affiliation. Because all the postgame camera’s were pointed to the center of the field where the coaches were, the altercation wasn’t recorded and therefore never happened in front a couple thousand potential witnesses. I believe it was Linebacker Courtney Love that split them up. Who knows, maybe it’ll come out in a book one day. I don’t even remember the the UF’s jersey number anymore, just that he was in full gear.
Franks’ injury has nothing to do with this play and is irrelevant in this matter. Feleipe got hurt on a clean play, so to suggest that the two are somehow connected is misleading. The two players played the same position in the same game and that’s it. As for the play in question, I have showed it to a couple different people (both angles) and we can’t come to any sort of a definitive conclusion. I think Kash isn’t being completely truthful, but others made the case that he was getting the weight off of his injured hand. And if we want to talk about being dirty, there was a Florida player that jumped a UK worker in the East Endzone in the aftermath of the game two years ago. One of our defensive players separated the two, but you never heard a word of that incident in the media anywhere.
There is quite the Internet rivalry in this thread.. Realistically speaking, I think many State fans share the opinion of my uncle, season bulldog ticket holder, who is ready for “Sloppy Joe” to go. A 2nd loss to UK for him would be another nail in the coffin. That State schedule is rough if you start out 2-2. Arkansas, UT, and Ole Miss “should-be” wins, but a 6-6 season isn’t going to keep your job post-Mullen.
There won’t be any suspension or punishment coming down from the SEC. If they open that door, they open another door they can’t close.. Having seen one camera angle on this, it certainly looked like a dirty play. What we need is a different angle to be conclusive. However, Trask’s initial reaction leads me to think he thought there was malicious intent.
That play happened right in front of me and I couldn't figure out how the heck Missouri only got one play off there. Then I saw the replay.. it is unsportsmanlike, but it was also a very astute play. We deserved to lose to a Lock TD pass for settling on a field goal from the 2-yard line to put us up by 6 points. Still, we're 5-1 with a 1 point loss to Florida.
Ease up on the kid. I genuinely believe he still loves UK, but his dad has laid it out to him that he would be riding the bench until his Junior year behind Pascal, Hoskins, Wright, and 1 other DE in his class. His parents wanted to see him play and to be honest we really really really need a few scholarships back from this class because we've started so hot and shocked some other recruits. Namely some guys that were looking at Tennessee, Florida, and Louisville.
Kentucky is 5-1 with a 1 point loss to Florida. You have us headed to the Liberty Bowl? Of the 6 teams left on our schedule, 5 have already suffered a blowout loss. We have a bye this week and the dumpster fires of Tennessee, Vandy and Ole Miss still left on the schedule.
If we won't to make the Dooley comparison... Jones will play @Alabama the week before playing @Kentucky.
