    good to see the OL stacked and a lot of jr’s and sr’s on defense. That could bode well for big blue! I can’t wait to watch my Cats play this year. Thanks for graduating Hartline I really appreciate it! I can get fired up for football again! GBB!

    Our defense should be really good this year! Especially if we get to have 12 starters on the field like this list suggests.

    But seriously, who’s the player that doesn’t start in our base defense? Donte Rumph?

    Aaron Boyd continues to make a huge impact on Kentucky Football.

    Where is Michael Bailey??? I figured he would be atop the depth chart at FS!!!!!

    #10…its either McDermott or Rumph. I’d guess McDermott based on size alone. Need a large body there at Nose Tackle.

    Cobble couldn’t beat out a walk-on, Williamson couldn’t beat out the slowest LB in the SEC. Wow.

    Ya where is Faulkner? He got hee late so he may be learning the system still. Interesting tidbit… did u know Donald Russell out performed Sanders in RYds RAvg RecYds and RecAvg? Didn’t know that.

    Also where is Baily? What happened to Qua? Why is gainer still our 5th string RB? Are we just really solid there or has he not progressed like they hoped?

    Several Questions after seeing the two-deep: (1) Is Mychael Bailey on the team? (2) I thought Justin Henderson was tearing it up at the hybrid DE/LB position behind Ridge Wilson; but not listed. (3) Wasn’t Sam Simpson like the 3rd best center in his HS class? Can’t even scrath the two-deep at C or G; yet a true Freshman has nailed down the back-up LT spot, moving Woods to a back-up Guard. Huge let-down for the Lexington Henry Clay guys, Boyd and Simpson.

    6 –
    I will be surprised if Cobble isn’t starting by game 2 or 3. I think his being behind McDermott at this point is just continued motivation by Joker and Co. By the time the SEC slate rolls around, the DT starters will likely be Cobble and Rumph followed by Crawford and McDermott.

    21 –
    DT Mark Crawford and S Mychal Bailey are suspended for the first game relating to activities at the end of last season.
    Jake Lanefski is considered the best backup interior lineman on the team. So, he will probably be the first sub in for either center or RG.

    We’re going from Cobb to Winston Guy as a returner? Wow. We’re in a heap of trouble on the return team.

    Guy has been good as a returner. I remember him taking one to the house as a freshman.

    22. Thank you.. I was wondering about Crawford.

    Will he redshirt?

    our secret is that we have a third safety … that 12th guy will really help us

    Is it safe to say yet that Aaron Boyd may have been the most over-hyped recruit in recent memory? Still can’t find the field.

    Aaron Boyd is just getting a free education at this point. What a sorry ass. That dude will turn 40, finally grow up and realize what he pissed away by being a lazy, hard-headed bum his whole life. What a shame.

    It’s great to see Mikie Benton’s name appear. I know Kige is gonna have some love for the kid from Russellville!
