I'm really not a huge UK fan at all, but I have to root for Kentucky because Kash Daniel does have Bobcat blood coursing through his veins.

Typical stoops team.

Talking **** after every play.
Missing assignments.
Letting an inferior team settle in and stay in the game.

Kentuckys offensive line alone wont allow them to win more than 6 games.

Absolutely pitiful showing thus far. The Westry targeting penalty sums up Mark Stoops time at UK so far. Undisciplined!

An SEC team should not struggle against Direction U.

Some of your predictions are about to be shot all to ****

I dont understand the reason for keeping stoops any longer. He reached his peak 2 years ago. Unless you're okay with mediocrity, he needs to go. Now.

What a fiasco the qb play turned out to be.

Touchdown Terry should now be referred to as turnover terry

This targeting **** needs to be relooked at. These hits aren't malicious. Its a football play.

SEC athletes taking this one over. Thought both targeting calls against CMU did not warrant ejections. Penalties but not ejections. Westry deserved to be booted. Stupid play on his part.

SEC athletes does not struggle against Direction U every year.

Looking at the stats. It looks like an ugly game outside of two long runs by the Cats. Could be a long season.

Gave them 10. Other than that it is a blowout. Rushed for 299 is controlling the game.

Westryís was blatant and is not a football play at all. He went for the guys neck/Head with his shoulder when the ball wasnít even in contention of being catchable. The other one, Iíll give you. That was flag football stuff out there.

I went yesterday a few observations from my seat.
1. Our defense I thought was much improved. I realize we were playing a MAC team, but tackling is tackling, and to me that has been a big issue last few years. Very few out-and-out misses yesterday. 10 of the 20 points were just handed over by turnovers. And Josh Allen looks NFL ready right now, if we make a low-level bowl game this year Iíll bet he skips it. Kash Daniel and Jordan Jones played well too, but I think we all know Jones will have some Vontaze Burfict moments as the season goes along.
2. Special teams looked good overall, the punter was excellent, Bowden is gonna break a long one from time to time, Bouvier did a good job on punt returns once he quit letting them roll for 20 extra yards, and the new place kicker can at least make extra points. We will just have to wait and see on field goals.
3. Running game is stout, Benny and Rose are both high quality backs.
4. The two big questions are quarterback and quality of opponents. Hoak had a nice drive and Wilson had some moments, but neither one made me think we are better at that spot than we were with Stephen Johnson. And again, Central Michigan wouldnít even be above Vandy in SEC, so business is about to pick up on the schedule.
5. Crowd basically sucked, I would guess 15,000 or so empty seats, and not a lot of excitement except maybe on the two long runs by Benny and Rose. I think everyone wants to be shown some real improvement, I think this is the do-or-die year for Stoops.
6. Finally the targeting thing is getting out of hand, and Iím not defending Westry at all, he made a terrible play, but I just feel like football is football, there are risks involved. Things happen in a split second, hate to see guys tossed (although on Westryís play he had time to adjust). But a lot of plays arenít like that. Iím not sure what the answer is.

Agree with everything you said. Bottom line is we have to find an impact quarterback that can make an impact in the passing game. Iím over the Going after dual threat guys I want a traditional QB! I think Beau Allen needs to be our Priority for the 2020 class! Heís in our backyard and is a must get! Terry Wilson is never gonna be a guy thatís gonna make a huge impact in the passing game! I think Hoak gives us the better chance to win if he can settle in the pocket. Wilson needs to learn to throw a deep ball instead of trying to rocket it in and guide it he needs to put some air under it and let our receivers run under it. Iím pretty happy with our defense outside of westrys stupidity. I think Lonnie Johnson is our better option there anyway. A lot more positive than negatives on the defensive side of the ball! I think if the staff settles on Hoak and he gets more comfortable I think it gives us the best shot to go bowling . If Wilson keeps the job the only bowling we will be doing is on the weekends with our buddies at the local Alley

Stoops has yet to recruit a quarterback that when the game started you felt like we have the best way quarterback on the field.
