BTI’s Rants and Ramblings: Alshon Jeffery Quite a Challenge

After watching the entire South Carolina-Alabama last Saturday, I can say with complete certainty that Gamecocks WR Alshon Jeffery was the BEST player on the field.  A field that included the Heisman Trophy winner, among other future 1st round NFL draft picks.  Alabama had NOBODY that could contain Jeffery, leading to his 2 touchdown catches, as well as one of the better catches this season that esentially clinched the game.

And I think we can safely say that Kentucky has nobody in our defensive secondary with the talent of Alabama.  So, how Kentucky will defend Jeffery has to be a concern for Steve Brown.  But, when you look at  how Kentucky has defended it’s opponents #1 receivers this year, you have some reason to be encouraged on Saturday.  

Doug Beaumont (Louisville): 3 receptions, 40 yards, 0 TD

Jack Doyle (Western Kentucky): 1 reception, 8 yards, 0 TD

Jeremy LaFrance (Akron): 0 receptions, 0 yards, 0 TD

Deounte Thompson (Florida): 5 receptions, 86 yards, 0 TD

Markeith Summers (Ole Miss): 1 reception, 7 yards, 0 TD

Darvin Adams (Auburn): 5 receptions, 101 yards, 0 TD

COMBINED (6 games): 15 receptions, 242 yards, 0 TD

Now, how Kentucky will stop Marcus Lattimore may be another question.
