UK is actually 4-0 in conference play 6-0 overall
Wow......slow down there Chief, let's wait till the Cats play a team with some semblance of a pulse of which Mizzou will have. ULM I wouldn't have even put a G5 level....they were absolutely horrid. It's easy to have massive holes open for RBs, open receivers in play action when you're playing a warm corpse. Let's see how this all plays out against SEC defense/offense before we get carried away wearing our blue tinted glasses. Don't get me wrong, UK looked good but they also have a lot to work on...rushing attack against ULM was actually pedestrian at best, passing game obviously was impressive but again, consider the competition. The game this Saturday will be a the first big test.
I don't guess you paid much attention the last two seasons.....Everybody loaded the box against Kentucky EVERY game the past two seasons....UK never his that they were going to run the ball EVERY down lol, if a team didn't load the box, then they had one of the dumbest coaching staffs in the country. They said we're running it, so try and stop us. C-Rod was constantly running into a stacked box but he was also running behind one of the best O lines in the country. You may want to re-watch some games to see that. UK plays smash mouth football, though there is going to be a more open balanced offense starting this season.
After much thought and consideration, here’s how I’m voting for the loaded preseason All-SEC RB slots
UK also uses the RB by committee approach, they rotated three backs last season....AJ Rose, Rodriguez and Kavosiey Smoke. They will again this coming season by rotating C-Rod, Smoke and Jutahn McClean
That's the truth right there lol! Besides, it's Loserville.....makes it all the more funny.
‘This kid is gonna be unreal.’ How Chris Rodriguez got to Kentucky, and why he’s returning as FBS’ highest-graded tailback
C-Rod, Smoke, Jutahn McClean, Travis Tisdale and Lavelle Wright. They are loaded at RB
LOL, What are YOU smoking??
Possibly a highly popular show focused on SEC football......earned or not, ESPN is going to make Pawl out to be an expert in support of his show on SEC network...owned by ESPN.
Dead nuts on!
Heupel better being a strong/deep defense. He will need to go 2 & 3 deep on D..especially the DL with his offensive scheme. So he needs some really good recruiting classes on defense. You still need to be able to successfully run the ball at times to eat clock and give your D some rest in this league. Heupel may be great at UT but obviously time will tell. I like Pawl and he is the voice of SEC, but he also says things right or wrong for attention, let's face it it increases viewership to his show...controversy always does.
Phat Phil.....that says it all lol. Brumbaugh fell on the sword for Pruitt...Pruitt has learned that from Patrick Phil
Jeremy Pruitt questions Tennessee’s play-calling against Kentucky, leaves door open for Harrison Bailey to start at QB
Thanks for the truth..anybody can beat anybody on a given day in this league. Teams better put their purses down, pull up their pantyhose and be ready for a fight. This is big boy football. Been many games I thought UK players were caught with their pantyhose down lol.
Whatever makes you feel better about getting curb stomped
Tool or not....that doesn't excuse a kick to the nuts. The UK player didn't touch the UT player....bottom line was the UT player in that instance was undisciplined
Thank you for the congrats...Class. This rivalry may become something of importance.
Bingo...exactly...won LOS on both sides.
Fat Phil will have Pruitt fall on the sword for him like all assistants have in years past. Its the ghost of Fat Phil
Can't spell Music City without UT......
I'd agree with you on that...or SEC QB's are terrible.
It wasn't a great offensive game for UK...credit to UT defense early on, but take away the 17 points via interception, its still a Cats win 17 pts of offense...not great but enough to do the job. If the UT defense gave up at halftime, then shame on them and the coaching staff. Bottom line was UK defense still had to make the plays, they did ..granted vawl QB helped.
I meant that as a compliment, not being a smartellick
Unfortunately for us, Stoops is so stubborn and loyal to seniors, it will take a total meltdown or injury (don't want any injuries) in order for Stoops to make a change at QB. The arm talent is obvious with Gatewood, he can put so much more velocity on his intermediate throws than TW can, I'd bet he also can go through all his progressions/reads. TW quite often never sees wide open receivers.
Gatewood isn't Cam Newton, but I bet he will be a far better passer than Terry Wilson. Gatewood appears to have a much quicker release and we shall see if he is able to see the whole field because Terry sure can't...he rarely ever checks all of his reads. TW just isn't a QB who is going to typically win you games with his arm.
And either of those total offense numbers typically aren't going to win you games.....very fortunate to have some key interceptions in that game. UT, USC, UGA, UF, Bama..in fact all teams left on Cat's schedule would for the Cats to only have 200 yds total offense......
Typically 205 total offensive yards isn't going to win you a game against a typical SEC team. We were fortunate that the D finally showed up for a game and that MSU and the air raid are in their infancy. Only accumulate 205 yes of offense this Sat against the dirty vawls and the Cats will be walking home declared. Funny thing is, had UK showed up and played defense the first two games like they did against MSU, cats would've won those games since they did have good offensive output. Gotta have both
NFL coaches should be salivating for a ST weapon such as him, he constantly flips the field.
I agree with you on your thoughts. TW is a game manager....aside from his running ability, he typically isn't the type of QB that is going to make the throws needed to be a game changer as the field general. As I noted previous, Gatewood showed a flash of his arm strength and quick release. One pass isn't enough to gauge if he is going to be an accurate passer, but if I were a gambler, I'd lay money on him being a QB that can be a game changer, the plays that I did see him make at Auburn were very encouraging and he easily could've been their starter if Bo Nix weren't a legacy recruit.
Since they were stacking the box, if we had a QB that could throw an accurate intermediate pass, we could've moved the ball. Crossing patterns 15-20 yards over the middle were open with then stacking the box, but TW doesn't check all his reads and isn't accurate. I don't think Gran and Co. trust him much with those throws. Joey Gatewood showed in that briefly appearance a flash of his arm strength and if receivers will step up, the ball is there for them to catch. Clevan should've caught the lone ball he threw.
Landon is talking about the National media, not SEC media/coaches. I agree there is some lack of respect, but I also say if they want overall respect then they have to start beating off and on teams like UT, UF and UGA. If they do that every couple years, then they'll get plenty of respect. It starts with winning games you're typically not picked to win. Beat UT every couple years and you have a really heated rivalry.
