Sawyer Smith returned to action against Vanderbilt, and not just to run a quarterback sneak on fourth down (although he did that once too). Once Kentucky built up a comfortable lead against the Commodores, Smith returned under center. He had thrown just one pass, a nine yard completion in the red zone against Missouri, since…

Sawyer Smith’s only snap was a quarterback sneak, a crucial play on the first series that converted a fourth down and ultimately led to a Kentucky touchdown. Aside from that one play, Kentucky’s offense was all Bowden Ball. Why did UK almost exclusively run with Bowden? The answer to that question is complicated. First and…

After Lynn Bowden led Kentucky to another big win as quarterback, will Mark Stoops and staff stay with him or go back to Sawyer Smith now that he’s finally healthy? “I think you all can see what’s going on out there,” Stoops said after the game. “It’s pretty hard to take him out. I don’t…

We didn’t learn much more about Kentucky’s quarterback situation from Mark Stoops’ comments on Monday. The updated depth chart named Lynn Bowden or Sawyer Smith as QB1; other than that, the first day of Missouri week hasn’t provided any new insight. In his opening remarks, Stoops simply said Kentucky will “look at the best options, all options…

On a cold and rainy night in Athens, Kentucky fell to #10 Georgia 21-0. In the loss, the Cats were shutout for the first time since the infamous 40-0 loss to Vanderbilt in 2012. As we all tabbed it before the season, this was a game we expected to lose. For 2.5 quarters, the defense…

Fans were clamoring for Sawyer Smith to try his hand at quarterback once Kentucky got down by multiple scores in the second half. It was clear the offense wasn’t going to put any points on the board with Lynn Bowden running the ball out of the quarterback position, and Smith seemed healthy enough on the…

We don’t know who will be Kentucky’s starting quarterback at Georgia tomorrow, but it’s safe to assume Lynn Bowden will get his share of the snaps, if not all of them. When that happens, he will once again have to play somewhat cautious and protect himself while running against Georgia’s defense, one of the best…

Days after Lynn Bowden led the Wildcats to a victory over Arkansas, Eddie Gran said Sawyer Smith returned to practice. “We’ve got both quarterbacks ready now at full speed.

Two days after Kentucky’s victory over Arkansas, Mark Stoops shared a few injury updates. Sawyer Smith has received all the shine as of late, so let’s start with Landon Young. Kentucky’s starting left tackle was slow to get up after Lynn Bowden was sacked late in the fourth quarter. Like almost every ankle injury, the…
