As most of you know, the schedule god was not too kind to our old Kentucky home. It’s brutal. And, somehow, Joker and the gang are going to have to muster up six wins out of it to make a bowl game. Knowing how football works, the best way for the Cats to win is to disrupt the opposing team’s quarterback play. Looking ahead I think that are a couple of quarterbacks that Rick Minter’s defense would have a better chance against than the others.
Jacoby Brisslet or Jeff Driskel, Florida– The old adage of two quarterbacks equals none could define the Gators upcoming season. Neither Driskel or Brisslet have been able to separate themselves in spring practice or summer workouts. Head coach Will Muschamp might play both quarterbacks until one does. Hopefully the situation isn’t figured out by the time the Cats get to Gainesville.
Tyler Russell, Miss. State- Russell is a tough quarterback with great size but how will he handle his first year as the unquestioned starter? Minter’s defensive line has to disrupt his rhythm with interior pressure. Russell is not very mobile which is something Donte Rumph and Mister Cobble have to take advantage of. Safeties Mike Benton and Martavious Neloms will have to be alert at all times because of Russell’s ability and willingness to throw the deep ball.
Tyler Bray, Tennessee- Bray is one of the most gifted quarterback in the SEC, but outside of stepping into the starter role towards the end of his freshman year to keep the Vols afloat, he hasn’t proved very much. Injured or not, the last time he stepped onto the field against Kentucky. he came up empty. Bray will be out to prove that the streak shouldn’t have ended but the Cats now have the mental advantage. Can Kentucky start a streak of their own?
So who do you guys think we have the best chance to beat? Anyone I didn’t list you think we have a chance against?
