Some of the more troubling stats from today’s loss

 

CTOqd6sWoAAf_Hk

It was not a good day for the Kentucky football team, to say the least. Their 27-3 loss to Georgia only looks worse when you examine the stat sheet. Here are some of the more offensive numbers:

  • 180: Yards of total offense for Kentucky, the third fewest in the Mark Stoops era
  • 8: The number of passes completed by Patrick Towles
  • 300: Rushing yards for Georgia, who is without their star running back Nick Chubb
  • 45: The number of rushing yards Georgia running back Sony Michel had last week
  • 165: The number of rushing yards Michel had against Kentucky
  • 11: The number of rushing yards Georgia running back Keith Marshall had against Vanderbilt
  • 60: The number of rushing yards Marshall had against Kentucky
  • 21: The number of first downs for Georgia
  • 8: The number of first downs for Kentucky

Ouch.

    I honestly hoped with all my heart that Stoops would be able to turn the UK football program,but after three seasons it looks like the program is no better than the last two years of Joker.His hire of Dawson as offensive coordinator has to be among the worst hires in UK history,and maybe the hire of Stoops may be as bad as Ray ,and Curry.
    This program is showing no signs of improvement for the third season in a row and that is very telling.

    The more things change, the more they stay the same. Stoops “success” is more indicative of a decline in opponents (South Carolina, Missouri) than in any improvement by this coaching staff. Lack of leadership from the head coach on down. No player development. Lack of basic skills. This is the end of year 3. There has been zero improvement from last year. Time for Stoops to go.

    Time of possession: Georgia 37:36 Kentucky 22:24. That’s a whole extra quarter of possession for the GA offense and kills the UK defense. I find that troubling, too…………….
