Who’s Ready To Go Randall?

Cobb’s second – and breakthrough – game.

No, this isn’t a post about Randall Cobb getting his first minutes in the NFL tonight (though in case you need a reminder, Pack/Saints in about thirty minutes.)  Instead I want you all to remember a few years back.  It was the start of the Mike Hartline era in Kentucky – 2008 – the Cats traveled to Louisville and laid down the humiliating score of 27-2 on the Cards.  But even with 27 points, many of them came from the defense leaving the offense a little questionable headed into Norfolk State.  Against Louisville, Randall Cobb had one carry for 2 yards and 3 catches for 31.  Not bad for a freshman, but nothing to get excited about.

Against Norfolk State – his second game as a Wildcat – Cobb went 6/11 on passes for 87 yards and a touchdown. He also carried the ball 8 times for 48 yards and two touchdowns.  A legend was born.

Sure it was just against Norfolk State, but this weekend Kentucky is playing ‘just’ Central Michigan.  We say a lot of disappointing play last week, but this summer we heard a lot about a number of freshmen.  Is one of them ready to take the Randall Cobb leap? Will it be Demarco Robinson who finally steps up for the WR’s and remembers how to catch the ball?  Could it be Josh Clemons who showed spurts of goodness (I hesitate to say ‘greatness’) against WKU?  It doesn’t have to be confined to freshmen though, maybe an extra week of settling into his role will have Morgan Newton ready to show off a refined short passing game.

It would be unrealistic to expect another Cobb to walk out of the locker room on Saturday, but it isn’t unrealistic to think somebody shows us something to get excited about on the offensive side of the ball.  I’m putting my money on Aaron Boyd (mainly because I’m contractually obligated to with #freeAaronBoyd going on,) but I’d like to hear your thoughts.  Who’s going to be the talk of KSR all week next week?

    Randall Cobb is a one in 20 years type player. Face it boys, UK Football sucks this year and it would take the entire team having a “Randall Cobb” moment just to win an SEC game. You heard it here first:

    UK: 4-8 (No Bowl Game)

    Bill Curry ball is back. Joker is the Tubby Smith of football.

    2) think you might be right, but hopefully the defense will shine again and everybody can actually give them some praise. Come on Matt, I know you’ve got it in you. Right?

    GO CATS!!

    maybe E.J. Fields can give the WR corp a boost too, didn’t he catch 2 TD passes
    in the spring game??

    Nobody on this current team is a quarter of the player Randall is. Maybe Clemons has a prayer but I’m just not seeing anybody else of that caliber.

    I’m sick of hearing about demarco robinson making a big splash at WR. He is way too small to play WR in this conference. He looked about 5’9″ and not old enough to be in college during fan day… just sayin?

    cobb on this years team would take us from a 5-7 team to a 7-5 team. ill admit when he first left, i was kinda pissed, like i was when meeks left. but in retrospect, thats a stupid way to be. he obviously made the right call. good luck randall, BBN is behind you!!!

    If Cobb plays against Bama his freshmen year we would have beat them. I hope Joker is like Tubby a national champion and never missed a post season. If you can’t respect the man that got us our last banner choke yourself!!!!
