Good news: Kentucky leads the SEC in something, and it’s not losses! According to the league stats, Kentucky leads the SEC in punt return average, with two returns for 54 yards for an average of 27 yards. Obviously, this means DeMarco Robinson leads the league in punt returns, and he’s also fifth in kick returns, with three for 74 yards. Robinson’s 33-yard punt return on Saturday was the longest for Kentucky since Randall Cobb took it back 50 yards for a touchdown against Western in 2010. He’s currently fourth in the league in all-purpose yards with 197 (69 receiving, 54 punt return, 74 kick return).

Avery Williamson also leads the league in tackles thus far, with ten. Here’s something I never thought I’d say this time last week: the Cats are second in the league in yards per rush, with 32 attempts (the fewest in the SEC) for 216 yards and two touchdowns. #GroundRaid

    (the fewest in the SEC)…rushing attempts. And fans are complaining that we ran too much. People need to understand in football you must be able to run the ball (and play D) to win. period

    You can’t give up 35 points and expect to win, anytime.

    Great news. I knew that once the emotion of Saturday will wear off and we examine the game with a clear head, some good news will emerge
    Thank you Mrs for pointing it out

    That’s great. They lead the SEC in most important fumbled by a wide receiver that cost us the game, missed blocks, offside penalties, and lack of hustle. Blow out Miami of Ohio this weekend, then get prepared for punishment.
    Reward those who make mistakes. Tired of excuses. We got beat/destroyed by WKU.

    Actually, yes UK does lead the league in losses. We are tied with a couple others, but we are 0-1, just like Vandy, Georgia and Miss. St.
