Well, we have room to improve…

Our favorite SEC football blogger at ESPN compiled a list of the top quarterbacks in the conference and it leaves plenty of room for UK to improve. Chris Low ranked the Top 10 QBs and Morgan Newton is #10. Bookie Cobbins did not make the list and that’s complete bull:

1. Aaron Murray, Georgia, So.

2. Stephen Garcia, South Carolina, Sr.

3. Chris Relf, Mississippi State, Sr.

4. Tyler Wilson, Arkansas, Jr.

5. Tyler Bray, Tennessee, So.

6. John Brantley, Florida, Sr.

7. Jordan Jefferson, LSU, Sr.

8. Zach Mettenberger, LSU, So.

9. AJ McCarron, Alabama, So.

10. Morgan Newton, Kentucky, Jr.: The Wildcats had high hopes for Newton when they signed him. Now that it’s his job going into the season, look for him to play with more consistency.

Hey, at least we’re not Auburn, Vanderbilt, or Ole Miss.

78 days…

    Garcia at number 2?? What a joke, he is garbage and cant throw it more than ten yards down the field. He was over rated going into last season too. The guys that move up some major spots this year will be Newton and, as much as I had to say it, Bray from UT. That kid dominated us when they made the switch at QB during our game last season. Bunch of low down dirty snitches!

    Cobbins should be in the Top 10. He is the future of UK Football.

    Man that’s bad when LSU has TWO ranked above you. It’s not like their QB university.

    No reason Newton can’t move up into the top 3 on this list. Garcia at #2 means the SEC is way down as far as QB’s go this year.

    Auburn is still in the Wilson sweepstakes with Wisconsin. This could change soon.

    Which ever QB starts is fine with me. Just so next year UK doesn’t haver a new QB starting for the fourth year in a row.

    Brantley won’t even be starting all year.
    Newton=Indiana Player of the Year=Tallest Midget

    There’s no way Garcia still has a year of eligibility remaining. That guy has been there since 1997 I think.
