    Shut these pussies up. Its time to prove em wrong and go out for an 11-1 season and win the college football playoff.

      Love your optimism; but…

    The analytics heavily favor teams that tend to pass the ball in first down and favor offensive production over defensive, closet won games. A five us pass on first down followed by a 3 yd run is much better than 2 4 yd runs, even though the result is the same and naturally a run heavy defensive team is going to have less blow outs.

    While liking UK’s record in close games – it’s unfortunate to recall some of those games were won against inferior opponents UK should have beaten by double digits. In conference and out.

    We shall see. I do believe we are better than 7 wins with our schedule

    Wouldn’t have it any other way . Kentucky could win the sec championship and we would still be un loved in the preseason ranks

    Last year we beat Florida, miss state, South Carolina, and all 4 nonconference opponents by double digits…..

    It weighs far more heavily on offensive production, and we won games last year with excellent defense, and an offense that was largely pedestrian, but did enough to win. However, using past performance to predict something like college football is silly. Personnel changes from year-to-year make it difficult, not to mention the fact these analytics don’t take into account improvement by individual players. Terry Wilson was mediocre last year, and played a good portion of the schedule with an injury. It isn’t out of the realm of possibility to assume, if he’s healthy, he will take a big step forward. And that will make our team better.
