Chris Doering picks Kentucky as dark horse in SEC East

Slowly but surely, Kentucky Football is gaining national respect. Yesterday, the SEC Network’s Chris Doering heaped all sorts of love on the Cats, picking them to make some real noise in the SEC East.

I’ve got Kentucky as my dark horse in the SEC East,” the former Florida Gator said. “I know a lot of people are fans of Georgia and Florida, but I look at this Kentucky team and a lot of the reasons I like Florida are why I like Kentucky. They’ve got continuity in their coaching staff. They return a lot of players on both sides of the ball with a ton of experience.”

Doering said he believes Kentucky’s defense will be even better than last year’s, but on offense, needs to see how Terry Wilson bounces back from injury. Regardless, he’s impressed by what Mark Stoops has achieved so far in Lexington.

“Most importantly to me though, this is a program that Mark Stoops has now built. He’s brought in quality players in recruiting cycle after recruiting cycle and he’s one of the best at developing that talent, so I really believe the biggest thing that he’s done is upgraded the talent and the mentality that they can win. They’re much more confident than they ever were before.”

Please let us have football.

      Not sure about that. Make some noise is different than Dark Horse. I do not believe they were saying that last year after losing Benny and Josh and company. I think in your mind that statement is true because you believe it. That is way different than believing something because it is true!

      Not true. We were like 96 out of 115 teams in returning talent. Everyone had us picked 4th or 5th in the East.

      BigBluSoTru enjoys the smell of his own farts a little too much.

      I’ll be happy with a single disgust loss, but given your moniker, I’ll chalk your exuberance down to your location being in Bama country.
