Watch Terry Wilson’s Deep Ball to Lynn Bowden

Terry Wilson is dropping bombs.

Absent from the offense in 2017, the first-year Kentucky quarterback found Lynn Bowden for a 70-yard gain in Saturday’s scrimmage.  We didn’t see much from the scrimmage, but Wilson was nice enough to show this spectacular play on his Instagram story.

Bowden’s catch is more impressive than Wilson’s throw.  The long-ball got hung up in the wind, forcing Bowden to turn his head from his right shoulder to his left.  Catching a deep pass is never easy, but to track that pass, stop and re-route in double coverage is something few can do.

A big thank you to Terry for posting this video because we did not see a lot of big plays in UK’s highlight package.

As you probably noticed, the editing crew gave equal time to all three quarterbacks.  It reflects the coaches’ message throughout this quarterback competition.  Here’s what Stoops had to say about them after Saturday’s scrimmage:

“The same thing I say all the time. Some good, some bad. I’d like to say it’s all good across the board, but everybody says it, but it’s true: they need players around them. Offensively you have to be in sync. You have to have some guys that will create some big things for you. We did hit some today. It seemed like after some of the ones were out of there, they did hit some. That’s what we need. The quarterbacks will be fine. We need guys to make big plays around them.”

Not only did Stoops refuse to get into specifics, he turned attention to “the players around them.”  By keeping attention off the quarterbacks, the storylines have been lackluster this spring.  However, by underselling the next QB, there’s exponentially less pressure to perform right away.

Fans probably won’t see much more from the quarterbacks until next Friday’s spring game. Until then, enjoy Terry’s bomb to Bowden, because that’s all you’re going to get.

    Nice but looks like it was a mix up on the route but Bowden made a great play and catch .

    Good tackle to save the TD by the safety too. Bowden threw in a nicely executed direction change on him and he recovered nicely

    Hell of a catch by Bowden. If he starts making catches like that, his targets number will grow exponentially next year. TT to LB all day.

    This to me is just about the catch, nothing stands out about the throw, other than its the new qb… I know you all at KSR could care less, but the trying to comment on a post is almost to the point of not even worth messing with. The advertisements just keep loading more, at that point I forget what I was writing sometimes. I know you got to pay the bills, but man its got to be taking away clicks for you guys.

    The pass was not good at all

    The deep ball was absent last year because the coaches played an injured QB the whole season and refused to give Hoak a chance. KSR has already crowned Wilson a god.

      We have as much in-game proof to deem Terry a god as you have with Gunner Hoak; none. It’s a crapshoot at this point, but it makes more sense to be more excited about the guy that reminds us of Stephen Johnson than the guy who is similar to Patrick Towles. That being said, as long as the eventual starter is actually good, I don’t care who it is. Our strength regardless will be Benny, and I think the QB option threat with Terry in the RPO will compliment Benny better than Hoak’s presumed deep ball

    One on one matchups happen deep and as long as you let a wr run out to get it and not have to stop and get caught that’s great, we didn’t have that last yr. lots of work to get done it sounds like. Don’t mind if gunnar hoak is named starter and TT takes it if he deserves it. Great catch ,Lynn is gonna be exciting this yr!

    What the armchair QBs that have never played the position don’t see is that Terry Wilson threw a catchable ball that allowed Bowden to run under it. It wasn’t underthrown. It wasn’t inaccurate.

    It looks like a deep post and Bowden turned toward the corner to get his eyes on the ball. Great, great adjustment by Bowden to get back in line with the throw. Great catch and near finish-for-the-TD.

    People here would send back a free bar of gold if it had a few nicks in it

    Can’t wait to see them perform in the spring game rather than being negative about anyone before we’ve seen them play

    These ads make it it hard to read and near impossible to post. We need another choice for all things UK.

    Absolutely terrible throw, with good eyes and feet by Bowden. Have to wonder why thes football clowns on ksr keep pushing this transfer bum, Hoak is twice the quarterback. We don’t need a running QB, we need a passer that can find the open receiver, Benny handles the running quite nicely.

      Amen-Benny & Bowden is our game this year.

    I get all this, but without a defensive line that can pressure the QB, non of this offense will matter in the SEC. I truly hope we can stop someone.
