Meet Boss, Freddie's newest Jack Kain Ford F-250.

The Depth Chart Podcast: “The Paradigm has Shifted.”

Meet Boss, Freddie's newest Jack Kain Ford F-250.

Meet Boss, Freddie’s newest Jack Kain Ford F-250.

“Kentucky is a no longer a basketball state, it’s a football state.”  It’s a ludicrous statement, but not as ludicrous as Freddie Maggard’s use of the word “paradigm,” especially when you look at the talent on the high school level.  In the 2019 class (juniors-to-be) there are six Top 250 players in the country, already with an offer sheet that includes every traditional college football powerhouse.

Kentucky’s winningest high school football coach, Philip Haywood of Belfry, joined the program to discuss the evolution of talent around the Commonwealth.  He also shared stories about future Wildcat Austin Dotson and much more.  There’s also plenty from Spring Football, including:

— Red jerseys didn’t exist when Freddie played.

— A game of over/under from last year’s stats.

— Dorian Baker’s pre-senior year progression.

— Freddie refuses to accept that Burgoo is delicious.
