    That’s an idea time slot for UK. Especially coming off the bye week. Playing at noon would of been a little tough especially with the uncertainty of Sawyer’s availability for the game. This time slot gives him a few more hours of treatment and pre game prep which will increase his chances of being healthy enough to play.
    I’m sure Wood, Gilmore,and Bowden will get time working with the ones over the next two weeks, with Walker getting the bulk of the reps with the first team in case Sawyer can’t go against Arkansas. I think records of 8-4,7-5,and,6-6 are a very much still in play. UK would have to beat Missouri, Tennessee, Arkansas,Vandy, Tennessee-Martian,and Louisville to accomplish that which very much within the realm of possibility.

    However any hopes
    of UK finishing with 9-3 record have really been put to bed with the loss to South Carolina this past Saturday. The only way UK can now accomplish a 9-3 record is winning out which would mean beating #3 Georgia in Athens which simply not going to happen especially with UK playing as bad as they are. In fact I will go on record to say that the Georgia game will likely be not only done by halftime but completely out of hand by halftime as in a blowout.

    I also don’t see us winning the game against Missouri either. Especially they way Missouri is playing defensively right now. Tennessee is having a terrible season, but they are not a bad team from a talent standpoint, the coaching all around has been good awful and it is obvious that Tenn HC Jeremy Puritt has completed lost his team. He probably won’t make to the game against UK without getting axed. If this ocurrs then this will result in Tenn playing with a little more passion and with effort with the hope of trying to get better for next season for who ever Tenn hires to replace Puritt as HC. When you have a team in this scenario like Tennessee who has some nice deep threat weapons on offense and a QB who likes to air it out who is playing against a team like UK, with a defense that has a young and severely inexperienced secondary you can get a result that looks a lot like the we saw in last year’s Tennessee-UK game where Tennessee blew out UK in a game UK was highly expected to win big. So how winnable is that Tenn game really? UK does have a reputation of losing to Tennessee so we are going to have to keep an eye on Tennessee going forward.

    I also think the Vandy and UofL games might actually ended up being “trap games” for UK. Why you may ask? Will I think UofL is a better team than people think. I think UofL’s new HC Scott Statterfield has his team fired up and playing with confidence. While they are young and lack depth defensively they can definitely score points and in bunches. So they should not have many issues scoring points against this, young,and inexperienced defense. The issue for them in that game will be keeping us from running the ball down thier throats. It will likely be a shoot out but thier offense is better suited to score quick while ours tends to be more conservative. So if comes down to which offense has more points we could be in trouble if they are scoring every time they have the ball and are doing so in less then 3 minutes and we are scoring every time we have the ball but it is taking us 5+ minutes at a time. We simply could just not have enough time to overcome that obstacle. However UK probably ends up winning this game but this game can’t be view as an automatic win because it’s not plus UofL usually plays us tough anyway.

    The other game that could to some people’s surprise give UK some real problems is Vandy. I know what you’re thinking ” You delusional to think that the UK-Vandy game is going to have a result other than UK knocking off Vandy”. Well I would be so sure about that yes Vandy is currently 0-3 but Vandy has a really good offense that includes a pair of talented big WR’s and one of the top 3 RB’s in the SEC in Keshawn Vaughn ,and you could make the argument that Vaughn is the best RB in the SEC. Vandy also has a QB in Ryan Neal who loves the sling around the football. Vandy last week against LSU put up 38 points on LSU “38” which is an accomplishment in it’s self. I mean I’m no expert but if Vandy can put up 38 points on LSU then think about how many points they going to be able to put up against our horrendous defense?

    So after considering everything I have said above and considering the inconstancies on offense,and how bad our defense is (which really makes it hard for the LB’s & DL to effectively do thier jobs), each week it’s looking more likely we are heading towards either a 6-6 season or a 5-7 season unfortunately.

    However I could also be wrong, I guess we will see soon enough. I hope we finish strong. As always Go Cats.

      They’ve effectively said Bowden has a higher chance of playing qb then Wood(injury prone) or Gilmore(doesn’t know the playbook).

    With the Jared festivities surrounding the game I’m glad this going to be an early evening start. Also sure the Arkansas fans are glad too as they can come in and enjoy Keeneland. Smart move SEC.

    Before anyone freaks out about Bowden at QB consider this. A qb that athletic running an rpo/option scheme will get out in space alot. If he can hit the soft spots in zones a team can’t defend it. If Kentucky stacks one side of the field with receivers while playing out of shotgun it will allow him to have more passing options and more blockers then defenders on option plays. Against man it let’s them use crossing routes to give him easy 1-1 throws or take off and run it for 20 on the open side of the field. The option also works against man from this formation because if they stack everyone over the receivers he can hand it off for a big run. If they put a defender over the edge and the guy guarding the RB over him it gives an absolute burner at qb a hat on a hat blocking with room to get momentum. Against both styles of defenses the option can also be set up where the RB goes up the middle if there’s not enough defenders or Bowden can keep it to run to the more favorable edge.

    Anybody know if we are doing a blue out or anything of that nature.
