    Gawd, please let AJ Rose understand what else Gran needs out of a RB. We need Snell, King, and Rose to be viable options.

    Also, I hope they open up the passing game to the RBs some more. If the QB can get the ball out to the TEs, it opens up a lot of things for them to catch out of the backfield since Baker, Conrad, and Bowden will command a lot of attention from the DBs and LBs.

      I hope King and Rose can get it done off the bench. But it would also be nice if Smoke or Rodriguez can be ready to step up if needed.

    I am not happy with King’s running ability. I wanna see Smoke in the lineup this season.

      King reminds me of Chad Scott. King is suppose to be fast so if anything I would hope they would try him out at kick/punt returns or maybe line him up in the backfield and then put him in motion. As for Smoke and Rodriguez, I can’t image we won’t see them due to the new redshirt rule.

    Let’s be real. They write these things by sending out a questionnaire to coaches, half of whom just have summer interns fill them out. The other half just jot down conventional wisdom remarks and try to keep it light. Total waste of time.

      That was weird. I posted a reply to the “What Other Coaches Think about Kentucky” thread, and it appeared here. Who says computers can’t get brain farts?

      Yeah but im ok with him playing behind ours that still gets the job done. We may not have a five star front across the board but for what it is, what they are, pretty damn impressive for development sake.

    If Gran and the coaching staff want to do right by Snell, they MUST make it a priority to make Benny a big part of the passing game. Every pro scout that’s out there has downgraded Snell as a pro prospect because he hasn’t demonstrated ANY ball-catching skills.

      It will be interesting to see if they use him that way. Last year he only had 10 receptions but he averaged 2 yards more than his average for his running plays.

      I read about a week ago Gran talking up Snell’s abilities as a receiver. Thought it was odd because he has not been utilized as such. It was kinda a tell to what the fall might bring. It would be really smart to help snells draft stock as much as possible. Recruits have never seen a Kentucky skill player get drafted. HUGE selling point
