Williams: “Offensive line is further along this year.”

When you lose three starters on an offensive line you can almost count on a step back in production, right? Not according to RB CoShik Williams. Williams thinks that this year’s group is further along than last year’s was at this point and cites the companionship of this year’s line as the main difference.

“They went to a lot of group things [in the offseason] and are bonding a little more than they did last year. They understand more of how the blocking schemes are suppose to work and it should allow them to run block better and pass block better.” 

Newly named team captain, Matt Smith, and Larry Warford are the anchors of Kentucky’s line this year, and will have to steady a group that is relatively young, specifically on the left side with LT Darrian Miller. Miller, who started two games last year at right tackle as a true freshman, will have his hands full against the opposing team’s best pass rushers every game, but his experience should help adjust to his starter role quickly. Williams’ confidence in the group means there is continuity on the line and that the running backs are finding good holes to run through.

    I really do hate to say it, but Dave is right on. I drank the kool aid last year that they were selling. It was my fourteenth year of having season tickets. Last year was also the last time that I had season tickets. I want them to be good, but don’t tell me, show me
