KSR Sources: Kentucky thin at several positions against Alabama

Kentucky’s chances at upsetting Alabama aren’t getting any higher.

Sources tell KSR that the Kentucky Wildcats Football team will be very thin a two positions–not counting special teams–for the upcoming game against the No. 1 ranked Crimson Tide on Saturday. The news doesn’t get any better, either, as Matt Jones is also hearing that two of arguably the team’s best players on offense and defense will be out.

Earlier in the day, KSR was hearing that just one position was going to be limited, but now two major positions are at risk of missing players.

Kentucky will take on ‘Bama down in Tuscaloosa tomorrow at 4 p.m. on the SEC Network. Tune in?

UPDATE: We have names.

Sources tell KSR that Kentucky’s best offensive and defensive weapons, running back Chris Rodriguez and linebacker Jamin Davis, did not make the trip to Tuscaloosa. Kyle Tucker reports as many as 16 players could be sidelined by injury or COVID-19.

    Now we have an excuse if we lose. Guessing OLine (Fortner rooms with Duffy) and Linebackers (Square was out last week).

    Just forfeit. I hate playing Bama anyway. Start out the year with an L before it ever begins.

    “ Kentucky’s chances at upsetting Alabama aren’t getting any higher.” True, but can they get any lower than ZERO, either?

    No one seems to want to be kind about the task UK faces at Alabama. I don’t expect UK to win. I don’t think the offense can do enough to keep them in the game and give the defense the chance to win. But! When you play you have a chance. Regardless of the size of it, you have a chance. Think Giants over the undefeated Patriots. Think Evansville over no. 1 UK. UK has a huge task in front of it but why would any real UK fan be critical of a UK football team that will do everything they can to try to pull of an upset? If your son was one of the players would you be texting him “63-3 Bama” or “Just forfeit”?

    Tough!so no CRod ? Shyt, time to give Saban a taste of his own medicine and bust out the no huddle. I am sure Gran would like to unleash Beau Allen.

    C rod is our most productive back but we got some others that has just as much potential. Juhtain and smoke gonna take over, smoke needs to get about 15 Carrie’s and he will RIP atleast two for big chunks. Now is time to experiment and run a gadget play or two and really keep em on their heels. I look for uk to cover the spread so keep it under 30 for me. Also lets see Cummings get a little time and see i
    What he can do and another rb tisdale may get in there with his big play potential. May need slide him over to slot and get him the ball in space cause he can fly. If most of starting wr were out would we even know it lol

    This explains why the betting line went from 30 to 33 points overnight.
