Kentucky wins an ugly one, 14-7

It wasn’t pretty, but Kentucky moved to 6-1 on the year with a sloppy win over Vanderbilt. The credit goes to the defense for keeping Vanderbilt off the scoreboard for the last three and a half quarters of the game. If not for the D, the Cats likely drop this one because the offense did not look good against a Commodore defense that is not very good.

Digest the numbers and we’ll be back with plenty more throughout the evening.

      Best QB ever… because his HANDOFF percentages is the HIGHEST in the SEC…here are TERRIFIED TERRY’S stats:

      HANDOFFS: 100/100 leads SEC
      FUMBLES: EVERY GAME Leads SEC QB’s
      INCOMPLETIONS: LEADS SEC because he WON’t throw the ball
      INT’s: led the SEC weeks 1-4; stopped throwing now so he’s good!!!
      PASS: WORST IN SEC; Can’t throw, wont throw!!!

      WTF is with the idiots who are happy we squeak out a marginal victory against a below average team showing one dimension on offense? Anyone actually believe Missouri doesn’t put 9 guys in the box and expose the weakness of our QB? Oh, but we won so it doesn’t matter that our QB missed a throw on a 5 yard slant pass so bad was behind the receiver a good two yards. But he had 92 yards running! Then put Rose in at QB and run the wishbone. QB is supposed to pass. How we recruit any receivers is beyond me. And oh yeah, did I mention our stellar kicking game? Anyone on the UK soccer team wanting to put on some pads? Good grief.

    Nope- just noting that despite the dearth of a passing game tonight, we still came out on top and the QB who has started every game has acheived an SEC record(to this point in the season) better than most teams in 100+ years of UK football history.

    I agree, they knew vandy couldn’t contain the run completely. Why risk throwing the game away when you can run it down their throats and just win ugly? Good win I do believe. Missouri will get their taste of snell and Allen, but more pass plays will be worked in. Maybe Bowden throwing the ball but hey,, a pass is a pass lol

    I’m happy with the win when we aren’t our best. But coming off a bye week at home.. really disappointed with offense passing game. Yes, the wind can cause issues but we didn’t seem to execute anything if it was practiced over 2 weeks.

      11:02 pm October 20, 2018 Permalink

      In fact, I’m trying to figure out what the issues really are… receiver routes / separation, Terry nervous, Grans playbook… or something else? But yes, good win to grind it out and what more can ya say about our defense.



    • CombatMedic_98
      11:08 pm October 20, 2018 Permalink

      I guess the wind was only a factor for UK QB…looks like Schumer threw over the top and on point all night like most QB do in a game…except ours…scared to death! He can’t make split-second decisions running Or throwing…he’s horrible!

    Danny Clark can get away from the pass rush(our olines weakness and why Hoak is not an option), throw down field(Wilson’s issue), doesn’t act scared and is built like a tank. But he is the youngest qb and Stoops always gives his older qbs first dibs. See Barker…

    I LOVE this team! They are more competitive and disciplined than any team we’ve had in YEARS. But I’m starting to think Terry’s legs aren’t better than Gunnar’s arm and that worries me. This offense is too potent to waste. Especially with a STUD of a defense.

    We didn’t score the second half against South Carolina had one offensive scoreAgainst Texas A&M and tonight had 14 points. 21 points in 10 quarters from our offense… two points per quarter…



  20. Thetruthshallsetbennyfree
    11:20 pm October 20, 2018 Permalink

    It isn’t that Terry’s legs out weigh Gunnar’s arm the problem is the lack of pass protection forces negates Gunnar’s arm. Yes on the few plays Gunnar could actually get a pass off and his receiver is open he may be the better passer but those plays would be few and far between. And as the second half of the CMU game showed when under pressure his accuracy lags which against SEC defenses is all the time and would equal interceptions. It’s one of the reasons Terry tucks and runs so much, no ones open and he feels pressure but at least he gains yards out of it. If he could learn to escape and continue to look down field(which is probably what the coaches are trying to develop) he could be truly dangerous. But for now he runs it on 3rd down which is a rookie mistake but still better then getting sacked which is what Hoak would most likely do.



    • Thetruthshallsetbennyfree

      Didn’t mean to add the forces before negates.



  21. makeitstop

    If the guy couid throw just a little I’d say his mobility makes him a better choice but he can’t. And it’s not his arm alone, it’s his reads. So we gave him half the field when he struggled early. Now we just see the scheme and call the play from the sideline and a good D (lets call it Georgia) won’t let that happen. U want to win u need a QB who can read the D and make the throw and it’s not Terry so ok, change it up now. Numbers don’t lie. Averaging 8 points a game on O over last 10 quarters. That’s not negative it’s math.



  22. Thetruthshallsetbennyfree
    11:36 pm October 20, 2018 Permalink

    Exactly why I said Clark deserves his shot. Wilson makes to many mistakes, and Hoak would get devoured by SEC pass rushes so that leaves Clark who is actually mobile enough to buy time and supposedly perfers to pass after breaking contain with the arm to back it up.

    Great win against a team that will beat some good teams if they don’t play their very best. On the 2 fumbles hadn’t happened who knows we may have road Benny to a couple more scores. But one thing for sure Stoops has got to do something with the kicking. It possibly cost one game already and I do believe before the season is over it’s going to come down to being able to make a field goal. The Hoak- Wilson debate is if Hoak was better than Wilson he would be out there. So it looks like it’s Wilson handing off the Benny and that’s it



  24. CoachCat
    11:44 pm October 20, 2018 Permalink

    I see a lot of talk about Gran not doing right by Terry Wilson. My opinion is that the lack of Wilson’s arm kinda handcuffs Gran and his choice of play calls. Or am I overthinking it?

    After scoring 28 first quarter points and winning at UT by 5 TDS, Tua said they were disappointed they didn’t execute as well as they should bc they didn’t give the D enough time to regroup 3 times (didn’t even know ‘Bama had a punter!) and just needed to tighten some things up. Which is how Cal wins basketball championships and Saban wins football. So stop making excuses for Terry and saying fans are negative when they see obvious shortcomings. Put in a passer and if he can’t do it fine but u freakin recruited him! U must think he’s good!

      Thank you makeitstop! The people who are in here saying oh but he is 6-1. Oh but he had 100 yards rushing. You can’t keep winning when your one dimensional. It’s not being negative it’s knowing f***ing football. The run game and the D is legit. If anybody thinks Mizzou or UGA isn’t gonna stack 9 in the box and make Terry show he can’t throw they’re crazy. We are past the “he just needs to develop”. Players develop in practice. Keep practicing Terry better luck next year. Give Clark or Hoak idc which just someone who can at least throw consistently.

    I agree with you Truth. And what seems to be a real problem, and you touched on it, is receivers getting open. If the receivers aren’t getting open and the o-line pass protection is breaking down, gonna be hard for Hoak to advance the ball. Terry’s legs are an asset in those situations. And he’s gaining the experience be needs to make better decisions when the options dry up.
