It’s that time once agian to scour the world wide web for those tiny tidbits about the world of Kentucky sports. What’s the latest buzz out there about the land of blue? What are people thinking about our football team? Here is all the latest along with some views from yours truly:
From SaturdayDownSouth, Kentucky Over/Under 3.5 Wins in 2013?
Buzz: I feel some good vibrations coming from Lexington this year, but it’s still not going to be pretty. However, with an offense that should score points and a defensive-minded coach, I like the Cats to pull the over. I’ve bought into Blue — hook, line and sinker.
With wins likely over Western Kentucky, Miami (OH), and Alabama state it seems a safe bet that Kentucky could get to that fourth win. They will certainly have lots of chances with games at Vandy and Mississippi St along with Missouri and Tennessee at home. It won’t be an easy year but four or five wins isn’t crazy.
SaturdayDownSouth also ranked the back-up quarterbacks of the SEC. Jalen Whitlow came in third
Kentucky sits in an interesting situation. They have a logical passing quarterback in Max Smith who can wing it 40 times per game, but Jalen Whitlow may give them the best chance to win now, because he’s more mobile. Anyway, I’m giving Smith the edge here, but Whitlow can and will make things happen in 2013
Not so sure Whitlow will enter the season as back-up but he is high on the list for good reason. Whitlow was by far the most impressive in the spring game and looked great at times in his first time under center when he was called to start as a freshman. A year two Whitlow could be very good under Neal Brown’s offense but Smith could excel as well. Until they name a starter expect the debate to rage on.
Larry Vaught takes a look at Running Back Depth.
There was a time when it looked like running back would be the deepest position not only on the Kentucky offense, but perhaps on the entire team. Now that has dramatically changed. – See more at: http://vaughtsviews.com/neal-brown-still-has-talent-to-use-at-running-back-but-depth-taking-a-big-hit/#sthash.A8xHi3tX.dpuf
