HALF: Missouri leads 10-3, Joey Gatewood in at QB

Jay Biggerstaff | USA Today

After one half of play, your Kentucky Wildcats trail the Missouri Tigers 10-3, and man, it has not been pretty so far.

Kentucky came out flat from the start, accumulating only 23 yards of offense in the first quarter, prompting a quarterback change. Joey Gatewood took over with 10:57 to go in the half and thanks to a 29-yard run by AJ Rose and a 50-yard field goal from Matt Ruffolo, the Cats got on the board. Unfortunately, the spark did not last. Kentucky went three-and-out on the next drive, but thankfully, the defense held Mizzou to a field goal. So far, the Cats only have 65 yards of total offense to Missouri’s 219, nine passing yards to Connor Bazelak’s 125. The SEC Nation crew put it best when they joked, “Does Kentucky know the forward pass is legal?” Harsh, but true.

The only thing worse than Kentucky’s offense right now? The background sound on the broadcast. Big week for the mute button. Here’s hoping for a better second half.

    Embarrassing; that’s called not trying. If they play like that in the 2nd half, I would let them find their own way home. Our vaunted defense is letting 1-2 Mizzou QB and RB make them look like fools, and the offense is anemic to the point of being laughable.

      We suck on both sides of the ball today. Totally uninspired effort.

      Embarrassing is the key word RG.

    Nine passing yards? Welcome to the 1920’s.

    Screwed up when they decided to start the game on offense and went downhill from there.

    Why didn’t he let Gatewood throw the dang ball!!

      Does Stoops ever let Gran call the game or does he “encourage” Gran what to call? The reason I ask is at Cincinnati Gran threw the ball all over field and at Kentucky that hasn’t happened. GO CATS!!!!

    Putting Terry Wilson back in??? ?

    This Solidifies the absolute STUPIDITY of our UK Coaching Staff! STOOPS and GRAN should be FIRED for their pitiful decision making!

    GO BIG BLuE!

    Oh good, put TW back in and play from behind; that’ll work…he’ll probably try to run and lay it on the ground for them.

      3 and out. Run the defense back in there for 8 more minutes..

      Well you got it half right, he just didn’t fumble. I don’t know how much more of this I can stomach.

    Why are we not giving the ball to rose or Rodriguez??? They have combined for 9 carries. Stop running the ball with terry pleaseeeeee

      Because they are over on the sidelines watching the defense

    Wilson is Grans guy even knowing we’ll lose. Add in the pass defense stayed in Lexington

    I got worried when Dawn Davenport said in the first half there was no energy on the KY sideline.

    Wait a minute…didn’t EVERY single KSR writer have this team 7-3 or better????

    Maybe Vince Marrow can mouth off again after this loss!

    Well, time for the team to get on the bus; time for me to turn this mess off. Maybe take them home, teach the defense how to tackle, and teach the offense how to play catch.

    Defense hasn’t been able to get a rest bc our offense is jus terrible. Gran has to be held accountable he’s got one of the best lines in football and can’t sustain a drive ? Can’t pass the ball?

    LOL… this UK football coaching staff needs to go! STOOPS and GRAN have turned a sure victory into a gift packaged defeat!

    Nothing more to watch about this program for 2020!

    Have not seen this awful coaching since Bill Curry wanted to make Tim Couch an Option Quarterback…

    Can you see Hal Mumme with Terry Wilson as his Quarterback? ?

    We took 3-steps back this year: three HuGE STEPS!

    GONE BIG BLUE

    It’s the wide receivers. Both QBs have throw good balls. Receivers suck!

    Can Wilson please leave the program? He’s killing everything that this team has worked for! He can’t throw, can’t run and sucks all around

    Look at the Bama Tenn highlights from today. QB just throws it up receivers made great plays all day. Our receivers are garbage. Go recruit a dude they can catch

      Even Mizzoo’s receivers caught some less than perfect balls, it seems every team has receivers who get open and catch balls that aren’t well thrown, every team but ours.

    Wilson is NOT the horse we need to ride.

    Welcome back to the reality of KY Football. It is what it is. We are what we are.

    Bring on Basketball.

    Yikes , it’s evident that we need a new qb full stop.

    Did anyone screen grab the shot of what the “experts” here at KSR predicted for the season? There were a lot of 6-4 and 7-3 projections as I recall. Maybe one person predicted this loss.

    Just curious. Will the KSR people admit they over hyped it all? LOL. Probably not.

      Terry Wilson isn’t a QB1 and he’s not even a qb1 for a D2 school….what has he ever done to prove himself…nothing! Let’s go with Gatewood who is our future and get rid of TW once and for all

    Eddie Gran…..it’s time to leave! You have done nothing to improve the offense and you suck at calling plays even against the worst teams we play! Come in Stoops get you head clear and fire his candy ass! If not then you follow him on the way out

    Our short-pass defense is middle schoolish…….wow, we got punked today.
