Today on KSR: That Sucked

Good morning BBN! Is everyone ok after last night? I know I’m not. Let’s just get this out of the way before we begin: last night sucked. Badly. Why we didn’t give the ball to Benny is beyond me, I’m not a college football coach, but I don’t see how you don’t give him the ball. That’s just the opinion of a 25-year-old girl though. What do I know?

Alright, well we’ve got some other things to cover, so let’s get to it!

 

Focus on the Positives!

Yes, we lost in a dumb and heartbreaking and very “Kentucky football” way, but this is not the Kentucky team we are used to. Hundreds of Kentucky fans made the trip to Texas A&M for a football game when Madness is next weekend. This is our first loss, we are 5-1. We will still make a bowl and oh yeah, we are RANKED. I’m upset about the loss, but it’s a different kind of upset. It’s a “we’ve just had a bad week” kind of upset not a “we’re hopeless, we’re Kentucky” kind of feeling. I think that’s positive, don’t you?

Shoutout to Josh Allen for this Amazing Response

Josh Allen was all over the field against Texas A&M. David Pollack and others took notice. How could you not love how Allen handled this compliment from Pollack.

And hey, at least we’re not Louisville!

If you missed it, little brother got absolutely embarrassed Friday night by Georgia Tech losing 66-31. So yes, things are not ideal for us but, at least we aren’t them.

Props to Georgia Tech for this!

Here’s What Happened in the SEC Yesterday

In other news, here’s what happened to the other schools in our conference yesterday:

  • Missouri and South Carolina had an emotional end to a very rainy game when the Gamecocks kicked a field goal with two seconds left, winning the game 37-35.
  • Alabama beat Arkansas 65-31. Ouch.
  • Florida beat LSU 27-19, and Tim Tebow got another Florida award. What’s new?
  • Mississippi State beat No. 8 Auburn 23-9!
  • And the scariest fact of all, Georgia beat Vandy 41-13.

I’m shaking already thinking about November 3rd.

Make fun all you want, but we’ll be there soon!

Cats in the NFL Schedule:

If you’re looking to watch more football today (I know I am) Here’s where and when you can see ex-cats play today:

  • Avery Williamson and the Jets play the Broncos at 1 PM
  • Randall Cobb and the Packers take on the Lions at 1 PM
  • Bud Dupree and the Steelers are going to LOSE to my Falcons today at 1 PM
  • Wesley Woodward and the Titans play the Bills at 1 PM
  • Jon Toth and the Eagles play the Vikings at 4:25 PM

Side note: it’s crazy that we don’t see Austin MacGinnis on this list. Give that man a job, NFL!

 

Happy Sunday friends! Enjoy the day, being lazy, watching football or doing whatever it is you do on Sundays! That’s all for me! Go Cats!

    It wasn’t a critique from David Pollack, it was a huge compliment.

    How is that a critique of Josh Allen? The guy basically said he can do everything. And btw, he can!

    Does anyone proofread these posts before they’re published? Pollack was clearly complimenting Allen.

    I liked the call on 3rd and 2. Folks complain about being too conservative and then complain when we take a calculated risk going for the jugular. Hypocrisy at it’s finest.

      Almost the entire game Wilson was wide-eyed and skittish. How do you put the ball in his hands in that situation? Stoops and Gran should have to answer that question.

      abobi…did you watch the game…Wilson was terrible all night and that is being kind. Normally I would agree that the call would confuse the D as they focus on Benny but we never had 1 guy open {except for the 1st two passes to Conrad} all night, Wilson was flat out afraid to run or throw all night and had no clue what to do every play. I have never seen a game where the QB looked so lost and unsure. In addition when he did run, as soon as a defender got close he curled up like a little girl with no effort to get an extra inch. So at that point you run Benny on 3rd and 2 and even 4th down if he gets stopped but you do not put the game in Wilsons hands based on his play all game. Benny averaged about 3.5 per carry until his 2 late 4th tr runs pushed him to about 4.5 per carry. Little doubt in 2 tries he gets a first down, well no doubt. When we got to OT I was like, awesome cause now we can just run Benny till he gets in the endzone, does anyone think in that situation he will not get 10 yards on 4 carries. Just do it till he scores and let the D stop them. Gran has no excuse and I don’t even want to hear his excuses. He is not an SEC caliber coach

    We lost one game against an opponent who happens to match up with us beget than probably any other team in the nation. An opponent who’s coach knows our coaches better than any other opponent in the nation. Our defense did not quit, even after being on the field almost the whole game. Let’s put on our big boy pants and get back to work.

    Obviously QB play was an issue but that’s on the coaches and their play selection. Is there anything that can be done about the refs not calling holds all have long in future games? Is there anything can be done formally to assure actual fair play calling?

    Let me know if you’re successful getting Drew to focus on the positives.

      I agree it’s easy to focus on the negative instead of being thankful that we already have 5 wins.

      That is one of the toughest places in the country to play, except for a very bad call A&M beats Clemson. Their defense is big, fast and athletic, the biggest D line we’ve faced. We should all be thrilled with what we’ve accomplished so far, I am extremely proud of our team. Maybe the negative “fans” should consider that maybe wasn’t our offense terrible as much as their defense was very good.

    I suppose being so disappointed over a loss is a good sign on the state of our program.

    Savannah Patton!

    You hit the nail on the head!

    “Focus on the Positives!”

    In no way does that adage equate to “Moral Victory”.

    Despite the offensive Offense, there were many positives; CATs took TA&M to over time – IN THEIR House.

    Things to work on? Sure!

    Let the CATS first Focus on the Positives!

    GO CATS!

    Hate to say it, and I know it’s already been said already, but Terry looked both mentally and physically soft. You can be neither of those as an SEC quarterback.

      I know Mark likes Gran, but we will never win the really big one with him as OC. Fire Eddie!!! He clearly has alzheimers as he forgot Bennie, CJ, & Bowen.
      TAM is a very good, at least top 10 team. Punter must have avgd 65 yds, which kept us bottled up. their pass defense was bad on paper cause they had played Clem & Bam, nos 1 & 2. We can still win out if our chief play caller is changed and defense continues its superior play, and the Zebs call the game fairly. GO CATS, I’m 85 and running out of time.

    Why was the UGA vandy score scary? Why do you all act so scary sometimes? It was 7-3 after the 1st quarter and 21-6 at halftime. Hardly scary.
