I bet Paris10 won’t be on this article
Something I’ve seen calipari do, especially recently, is he sometimes will take his young teams who are full of themselves and just kinda coach a loss. He humbles them by not trying too hard to win a game and letting them lose if he needs to. He tried to get Nick Richards to play more safe, and to get the team to use two hands on every catch. I saw multiple turnovers due to just sloppy play, i.e. only using one hand to catch a ball. He’s coached losses like this before, kinda like how Kentucky lost to Duke by 34 at the beginning of the year last year, he just sat down and let it happen. It’s November and these kids are 18, he’s letting them coach themselves and lose so they’ll listen more
What juco did we pluck Josh Allen and Benny Snell from? And yeah I’ll agree that we’ve had bad luck with quarterbacks, but Stephen Johnson was a dramatic change just a couple years ago, and terry wilson showed lots of improvement over last year until he went down for the year
Kentucky didn’t just lose their starting quarterback, but their backup has been playing through injury ever since the Florida game with no real qb3. They’ve also been working with a limited secondary after last years draft, which has also seen injuries this year
South Carolina, Mississippi State, Missouri, and Kentucky all had more players of the week than Alabama. I know others did too, but those 4 teams usually aren’t in the category of “more players of the week than bama”.
Hey you mentioned Gunnar Hoak, and I know he’s a grad transfer but he’s from Kentucky so he technically counts I think.
Gus won’t be fired anytime soon since his buyout is like $50 million or something dumb. But, it’s auburn, so I guess if anyone would fire someone with that buyout it would be the tigers
I think a fair comparison would be to Will Grier at West Virginia in his first game in over a year and a half, against a top 25 team (Virginia tech), he threw for 371 yards, 3 touchdowns and 1 interception in a 7 point loss. It’s not unfair to criticize franks here
They wanted to get New York City as a possible market for the big 10, and hoped it would bring fans in to support Ohio State, Michigan, penn State and the others
