Garrett Johnson could pass Randall Cobb in career receiving yards Saturday

Saturday could be a huge day for Garrett Johnson. Not only is the Winter Park, Florida native going up against his home state Gators, he has a chance to pass Randall Cobb on Kentucky’s career receiving list.

Johnson has 1,654 receiving yards over his career at Kentucky, and with seven more, will move to seventh on the list, passing Cobb, who will be inducted into the UK Athletics Hall of Fame this weekend. Juice is averaging 35 receiving yards per game, so I’d say the chances are high he’ll do it. In fact, if he gets over 50 receiving yards, he can move up even higher on the list, passing La’Rod King (1,706 yards) at sixth and maybe even Quentin McCord (1,743) at fifth.

If Johnson channels his breakout performance vs. the Gators his freshman year, it will certainly happen. In 2014, Johnson caught six passes for 154 yards and two touchdowns in the Swamp. Sadly, it was all for naught as the Cats lost a triple overtime thriller 36-30. Stupid play clock.

Move up the list and break the streak. Let’s do it.

    Is it just me or has Juice gotten smaller every year that he has been here?

    I don’t think I realized The Rod had that many receiving yards.

    I hate this story line so much.

    1) Cobb played QB and RB for us.
    2) Cobb played 3 seasons.
    3) Cobb is wayyyyyyy better than Juice. Not saying the latter isn’t good.
