Which SEC quarterback gives Kentucky the best chance to win?

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?

    Looks like you covered everyone. Wilson is good, Jordan Rogers is good, Franklin from Mizzou is very shifty and we all Shaw what Connor Shaw did to us last year,

    Aaron Murray and Georgia. Why not? Without Crowell Georgia will have to air it out or rely on a true freshman (Keith Marshall, who is a bada$$, but still a frosh). I think Kentucky beats Georgia this year, thats my upset pick for the year. With Crowell, I think UGA has a cakewalk into the SEC championship with arguably the easiest schedule of any SEC team. Without Crowell, UGA is above average but will lose games to teams they shouldn’t.

    I actually think we will be able to set the tone early in games this year and facing inexperienced/knucklehead QB’s doesn’t hurt. Last year, it was a new system so w/ players being green to it, Minter had the D line catching which allowed the experience (LB’s) to make plays. This year, look for our D Line to play a much more aggressive role since everyone is more experienced to the system. We will need to develop some depth on the D line to sustain defensive success throughout games though. However, unlike most of the team (on paper), we have a legit D Line with Cobble, Rumph, Ukwu, Wyndham. I do like the young talent who will see time. The aggressive style will allow them to rattle some QB’s out of the gate. Hopefully it will rattle them enough to throw them off for 60 minutes.

    It’s a shame Matt Roark graduated. He’s undefeated versus Tyler Bray.

    Well. You Know..The jackasses on here will believe that it is Joker’s fault that boy didn’t come to Kentucky and didn’t throw something through a windshield. I hate the haters. I will post this every-time until you guys be sick. That said, I hate Stuart Hammer.

    Name calling will not bring anyone over to your point of view,,,,just the opposite. As for Joker,,,,he may be the finest person on the planet but he is not a football coach. After another dismal year,,,,he will be gone.

    @15. Ole Miss may be terrible, but I don’t think they’ll give us a W against them unless we actually play them.

    Dumb ass.

    Didn’t Bray light UK up for 354 yards in Knoxville 2010. Last year he stunk it up in Lexington but he was coming off a broken thumb on his throwing hand. So quick to judge.

    @17 – don’t be too hard on these folks. This is a great website and fan base site for 2 reasons. #1 – It is by far the best basketball information and enthusiasm in the SEC. #2 -On the other hand its the most clueless and delusional site for SEC football information. Between around May and November it is good for more laughs than I can remember. Buts thats how our relationship works with the Bluegrass State.
