Terry Wilson’s Absence Looms Large in Kentucky’s 38-17 Victory over Eastern Michigan

Of all the Kentucky football wins, this was one of them.

Kentucky sprinted out to a 14-0 first quarter lead, poised to steamroll past Eastern Michigan for a blowout victory. That dream quickly dissolved into a nightmare.

A.J. Rose fumbled the ball on the one-yard line just before entering the end zone to take a 21-0 lead. Just a few plays later Jordan Griffin responded by picking off a pass, but penalties forced the Cats to settle for a field goal. On the ensuing drive Kash Daniel caught a tipped ball for his first career interception. More self-inflicted mistakes erased a long Kavosiey Smoke touchdown. A missed field goal from 49 yards out resulted in zero points from Daniel’s excellent interception.

The night never felt the same after that sequence. It only got worse when a horse-collar tackle on Terry Wilson sent Kentucky’s quarterback off the field on a stretcher.

Sawyer Smith entered the game and his first pass could not have been any better. A deep ball to Ahmad Wagner went 54 yards for the wide receiver’s first career touchdown. Smith went to Wagner again, and to no one’s surprise, Wagner drew a pass interference. Smith found Lynn Bowden on the following play for the final score of the game (one that secured a cover). The transfer from Troy completed 5-of-9 passes for 76 yards and two touchdowns.

Kentucky got a 38-17 victory over Eastern Michigan, but the second straight MAC win left the BBN uneasy as Wilson’s status remains unknown a week away from the showdown with Florida at Kroger Field.

    No X-Ray or MRI tonite ? Is that good or bad ?

      They usually have to wait for swelling to go down to see the ligament tear. They definitely think it’s an ACL. MRI is just to confirm suspicion.

    I’m sure Wilson ruptured his ACL the way his left knee made contact with the turf while being pulled down by the horse collar and the force in which the defender was pulling Terry down there is absolutely no way it can be anything other than a ruptured ACL. Season over.

      Yep; illegal, dirty, chicken$hit, cowardly tackle. A true coward.

      You can see him pull his knee up like a non-contact you’d see in Basketball. He was talking about how it “popped” as he was being carted off field. I hate it for him.

    In Sawyer we trust! Next man up! This is why preseason prognostications are worth nothing. I’m confident. He looked really good.

      Why so negative? Our backup QB was the MVP of a bowl game last year. At least we aren’t going with a true Freshman.

      Carcrook,
      You are a moron as your username suggests.

    Well we could’ve run the clock down and ended the game but kept throwing so that tells me Stoops thinks Terry is out and he’s getting Sawyer snaps.

      I agree, get him in a rhythm and the most live snaps possible.

    Just how important was it that we picked Sawyer up at the last minute now?

    We’re done! 4-8 here we come.

      Hey good buddy. That is just a stupidly stupid, beyond stupid take. Unless it was sarcasm and you were making fun of the stupid people who will actually say that stupid, stupid shiiit!!!, then it was kinda funny.

    Can we at least wait for the diagnosis before we start slitting our wrists ?

    Dear God, can you please take back the injury you’ve bestowed upon TW? You let Steph Curry hit all those 3s all the time, and he’s obnoxious. Terry is a good kid, so why injury his knee? Seems pretty unjust. Thanks and amen.

    Wilson carries himself well and has respect from everybody around program. Much respect!

    JASUN74 Of course it was sarcasm. We will be fine we may lose Terry’s running ability,but we can make up for it with our RB’s and maybe use Bowden in the Wildcat more often we can also use him as a RB on a WR reverse play. It sucks but like coach Stoops said last night we will run out offense.

      Run our offense not out offense.

    I was impressed w Sawyer Smith’s interview. Of course, next week is a whole different ballgame but he seems on first impression like he’s got the chops. But who is HIS backup? That’s concerning. But man, kudos to the staff for getting Smith in here when we lost Hoak!

      According to coach Stoops himself Walker Wood will back up Sawyer Smith if Terry is done for the year.
