Teams tell us the same thing every year and still, here we are. There a good reason why we’re 7-8 over USC, 6-7 vs Mizzou, and passing UT up. I’m not saying we’re anything other than a constantly good program who recruits at a good level but develops at a superb level. Only a matter of time before we start getting more and more 4-5 stars who’ve seen what we’ve been doing with 3 and low end 4 stars. We’re a consistent program now, that’s all I’m saying.
Also excuse typos, fat fingering my phones keyboard a little.
Not to mention SDS, as much as I enjoy this sight, loves to discredit anyone who’s not UGA or the other big teams in the conference. Just saying we’ll be okay and think it more likely to 6-2 or 7-1 than 5-3. But even if we are 9-3 because our November slate is significantly easier.
Personally, being at the game we just laid an egg but still won. What kills me is he says 5-3. How? I disagree with being home under dog to LSU. Our oline really hasn’t been disappointing. Most of those sacks cam in the first game, when we’re just trying to figure stuff out. Like I genuinely feel we’re as a fans base is just overthinking this. We’re a better team than what we played agains Mizzou and it’s still reasonable to see us beating both UF and LSU. UGA is just a different dog so to speak.
Not that I want to defend Miami but App State is a good team and program. That being said if Miami was the program they pretend that are they’d won that game by a lot more so….
Can’t tell if this is sarcasm or not, appreciate it any way! Haha
If we can fix our tackling and fumbles we’d be better off. Historically we’ve been able to run on the big teams but not score. So we’ll see how we do soon enough.
‘I take full responsibility’: Mizzou DC Steve Wilks responds to Tigers’ defensive showing vs. Kentucky
Seems like a few mizzou fans got ahead of themselves. It took us time to build our lines, feel you all just need to be patient.
Excuse typos, a little bit of fat fingers
Really, “should’ve”. Come on man, you know the second you try and stop the run we’d throw it over your head. The couple of times you came close to slowing it down, we did. You guys are a good team but don’t pretend you’re a better than us. Yes you lost by 7 but that was more us than you. If we score at half like we should’ve it’s 28-7 and then what. We out gained you by nearly 200 yards. If we don’t fumble at half we win by 2-3 scores. That’s not taking credit away though, mizzou capitalized on our mistakes as did we. We also missed a lot of tackles. The truth is this, a lot of our problems are correctable and yours isn’t this year unless you just have a revelation on the dline. Not to mention we have been able to run the ball effectively on everybody the past few years, to include Georgia and Alabama last year. We’re just a good team and your okay, just accept it.
I always forget you think of Petrino as a good coach. As a Kentucky fan we usually just think of him as an embarrassment to society.
Yeah, I like PFF but that’s a little head scratchy.
*In the nation, I need to not use my phone on this site. It’s garbage, but then again I’ve never been a great speller.
It’s okay, you’ll figure out why it’s called that come September 25th. Has been one of the best O-lines on the nation consistently the past 3 years. You should know, your defense seems to love opening up to us.
I think you mean we’ll by what you’re saying but it’s just incorrect. Yeah we don’t consider ourselfs a football powerhouse, but it’s not like we’re a bad one any more. We’ve been developing something good up here since stoops got here. We originally were getting ttransfers from mid tier g5 schools and now Auburn and Penn State. He may not be a Mac Jones but he seems, to this point, to still be capable and worthy of a competent power 5 program. We are that now and might not be as visible from your crimson tower. Go cats
Defense statistics in the SEC, doing this on a phone is complicated.
I say this as a Kentucky fan who grew up in Oklahoma, military stuff makes it weird. Even the SEC mid to bottom is a step up from the B12. UK and Mizzou would easily be on par if not better than TCU or OSU. UK in particular is constantly ranked top 3 in defense. I think what OU will see a drop in point totals. They’ll still probably be good/great but even bama has said UK is among the most physical teams they’ve played. We just didn’t score on them, we did drive on them consistently.
Right, how many times in the past 10-20 years have we been the legitimate better team but still wind up loosing. Like it’s hilarious that Stoops being a great coach still has only beat UT 2 times. Think that’ll change but we’ll see. Thought the same way in 2018.
Yeah, was typing that early in the morning and wasn’t really into proofreading it. I’m educated I swear just not in English or writing
There’s a comment below meant for you. The set up of this website is frustrating. I’ll sum it up, I’m not saying our program in terms of history is better, in the here and now we are enjoying a better win loss ratio than you and similar wins and losses to UF and UGA. You’re not head and heals better than us RIGHT NOW, and projections are that won’t change unless you get your version of Stoops. Noting delusional about what I was saying.
See below, I’m not saying our history the past 50yrs is comparable, I’m saying the past few years since 2016. We have been better, while you’ve beaten us more, we’re more stable and more consistent being able to bounce back. All I was hoping you would see is that perspective is important and you not a solid member of the big 3 any more in the East with UK challenging you and probably more wins coming for us. Again I’m not saying our program, in history, is better. I’m saying that we are on the same playing field now and for many recruits, that’s what matters.
I think you hit the point I was trying to make, they need to be realistic. I was making slot of what I was saying in comparison, certainly wasn’t saying the programs are comparable in terms of history. I was more so referencing the last few years, we have been better the past few years and in the modern era that’s what matters. I don’t think, understanding from a point or perspective, anything I said was delusional or unrealistic.
*players and probably a bunch of other grammatical mistakes like a missing paragraph break. My bad!
So any time any one puts criticism on your school you’re just going to throw random jabs at them? UGA: “1980”, UF random name calling (I hate UF too so I don’t mind that), even heard some UT fans moch bama. As long as you keep pretending that you’re heads and heels better than UK the more you’ll be passed up by them. Our faculties are better if not on par with yours, better development (turning 3 starts into 4 stars compared to 4 into 3). I gave y’all credit and you just say “stick to basketball”. God forbid you have some humility about where you’re program is at. It’s better for the SEC if you are good and even better if the northern most school is stealing layers away from the big 10 beating everyone outside of conference. I’ll stick to basketball the day UT wins a national title or beats bama or UGA or UF again. Our state has better HS players over the past few years and we can actually lock down our in state talent. God bless you and your family, only he can make you see through your excuses.
Excuse the long post, also some grammatical errors. I don’t see them as well as I would on my laptop so if it hurts your eyes to read, I apologize.
I’m going to say it. For now UK has passed UT in football, at least for the foreseeable future. We’ve had much more stability since Stoops was hired, 37-26 since 2016 compared to UT who has had 2 coaches and are 30-32. Recruiting rankings, UT has the edge but we’ve been able to develop players much better and find hidden gems more often. You do hold the overall star lead however to your credit. You haven’t necessarily dominated us on the field since 2016 being decided in the 4th qtr, aside from 2 being 2018 and 2020. I’m not saying we’re elite ourselves, we have to beat you consistently and find away to be competitive with UGA more constantly before I personally would make that leap but UT is where we were comparatively in 2013, lost without a direction. Stoops gave our program stability above all and pride in our program. You have pride, in some ways unfounded the last 20yrs, but you haven’t had stability in 14 yrs. UKs program is very much a rebirthed one in the SEC, we aren’t great yet but we’re good and have solidly passed USC, Mizzou, and of course Vandy. Same thing with USC until you know where you are at you won’t get back to where you want to be. UK is your main competition now, you aren’t on the same level as UF and UGA any more. If you don’t do something UK will beat you next year and constantly do so for years after if you don’t find your Stoops.
