sorry for the typos, sent this from my phone and i suck at typing lol
its not secret around the conference that a having a balanced offense has been whats holding UK back from competing at the next level. Will that change this year? Thats yet to be seen, but its nice to know its in the works. There are alot of good pieces to work with also, and we can always rely on our offensive line and running game as well. UK vs. Mizzou in week 2 is likely to be a very important game in the east standings by seasons end. Both programs are trying to break into that "next tier" of the conference. Should be fun. Im just glad we got it at home.
Nebraska transfer Wandale Robinson fits that switch army knife description. Can play receiver or RB. might get a few carries but Kentucky will be using his skills at receiver. Could have a big season because he will be getting alot of touches. One to keep an eye on.
Kentucky will likely be favored in every game on the schedule outside of UF, LSU, and UGA . Toss ups against Mizzou, and Mississippi State will be huge. We get Mizzou early and at home so I think we will be favored by a small margin. UT and USC are in rebuild mode under new coaches, so I think those will be sure wins, but you never know for sure.
I agree with that. Based on how the schedule lines up. With some improvement in the passing game with a new scheme and some playmakers to throw to (Robinson, Ali) on the outside, veteran TE's and a good returning Oline, along with C-ROD running the ball, we could finally have a capable/good offense. Win one of 3 games against UF, LSU, UGA and avoid any slip ups, and 10-2 regular season is possible and a great bowl game. Realistically Ill say 9-3 and win against a quality team in a bowl game to get to 10 wins this year. Yes its optimistic, but the schedule does really line up nicely for us the year outside of that 3 game stretch.
yeah I have to agree this is a dumb take from a UK fan. Im going to attribute it to an excited fan who is happy to finally have a chance to kick down at UT. Waddlethewildcat is correct though that major steps have been taken at UK to make our facilities on par with most in the conference, and stoops has certainly done a fine job in recruiting ane elevating the program. I think Stoops is already getting plenty enough praise for that. That being said, we are still YEARS away from being on par with UT as a program. its not even close when you compare the two historically. One thing that I think Waddle does state correctly though, is that UT needs to be aware of where they are in the east right now, in 2021. While UGA and UF are certainly who UT would like to compete with, first they need establish themselves as the legitimate third best team for a few years in order to stave off a few programs that are pushing to compete with them like UK, and Mizzou (we will see what beamer can do at SC). For UT, they need to think of these teams as a rebellion that they need to squash before gearing up to take on UF and UGA. That needs to be the immediate goal that you can build on later. So dont chase a guy out for going 7-5/8-4 a couple times.
Im looking forward to our game with you guys next season as well in Starkville. Miss State should be much improved, and showed some promise late this season. Kentucky is bringing in a new OC and with it, a new philosophy on offense. That is something that has been sorely missing for a few seasons. Looks like we will be moving towards a more pro-style offense. I expect a close one at Miss State next season. Its going to be a really important game for both teams.
I like the hire. He went with someone who can help coach up both the receivers and Qb's, an area thats been severely lacking. A new scheme should help some of the offense problems we have had the past few season. Defense has been solid, but offense has been whats stopped us from competing at the next level. Excited to see if this hire pays off for us. We for sure need to get ST coordinator next. Go Cats. Stoops has my full support.
Rumor is going around that we may be expecting to pick up a few additional players in the transfer portal within the next few days. While this does nothing for the recuriting "Rankings" it should help round out the class.
