The SEC Blog guys over at ESPN have been doing installments in a feature they call the X Factor leading up to the college football season. They released their edition on Kentucky, and the Sophomore Running Back got the nod for Joker’s 2011 Cats. Good news for Raymond to see, as he will definitely be an integral part to the team next year.
However, I’m not so quick to agree that he’s the X Factor. Their decision centered around the idea that Raymond will have to establish a running game for Kentucky if Morgan Newton is going to be able to make plays through the air. I’ll agree with that. However, as they mentioned, there is a good chance the running game will once again be by committee, and the offensive line looks to be one of the best we’ve had in years. If that pans out, the running game will establish itself – no need to worry. Raymond will undoubtedly play a big role in the offense next year, but I think the ‘X Factor’ title might go to Morgan Newton himself. His development over the next year is absolutely the most important key to the Kentucky football season. You know, in my opinion.
