Love where this offense is headed.  Respect the job Urb and Herman have done with quickly helping a young man step up at QB.  I honestly thought Tress and the Walrus or whoever else tried to coordinate the O - were slow to develop QB's.  This kid is a having a Troy smith Senior type yr. as basically a freshman redshirt or no redhsirt - in his first few games he is performing at a very high level.

The white shirted lunatics from PA will try to rattle him - but after a 17-0 1stQ - they will be back in their dorms drinking Yuengling or Schmidt's or whatever they can find.

I know it has been discussed before - but what a good situation to have coming into next yr.

Two proven winners at QB - and very solid backups behind them.

I don't look at this as a problem - unless you are an opposing defensive coordinator.

I would just love to see them both on the field (in a package) sometimes if at all possible.

Whoever said - " if you have two QB's than you don't have one" ?  

Gimme two.

This team might surprise a few people.  I think Russel is going to be fun to watch.

Scott can handle the point and play D (for the luv of god he had Craft in his grill for three years)

Thompson can score and rebound - he is the key - if he gets more consistent - they could be an elite 8 team.

And we have some bigs.

Though can't see anyone being the fav to win it other than Kentucky - just too much talent.

Comment 15 Oct 2014

Kentucky only has enough in their budget to pay their basketball players.

Can't keep up with the rest of the $EC.

Comment 03 Apr 2014

It's so refreshing to actually have this many weapons on offense and coaches that will actually try to use all of them.

Can't wait  - even with the oline losses along with Hyde and Philly  - next yrs. O might even be better because of the potential growth of Braxton and utilization of Dontre.

Defense coordinators will have match up issues all over the field.

Comment 20 Mar 2014

I will say this - we will never see a kid with the - smarts -  heart - unselfishness - and gutsy D all in one combo which is Aaron Craft.

Love that dude and wish him the best.

Going forward...What will will need though - is more SHOOTERS - somebody have Diebler procreate a kid quickly.

Comment 20 Mar 2014

Just an observation.  Stuff like this is awesome.  And detailed. But does any other site breakdown their D or O like 11W does?  Does Goblow..or Tennecheat...or other $EC sites provide this type of detail to fans?  

I'd rather the free world not know specifics about our team and let others do their homework - not provide them a cheat sheet.

I understand each game is situational and all info given is not top secret  -but i can't imagine it not being passed along to some inquiring minds.

I'll stop toking on the paranoia weed - but just an observation and a question.

Some of the best NFL'ers come in with a chip on their shoulder from being draft shafted - Hope Carlos comes in with one to motivate him if he falls out of the second rd.  RB's are not that highly coveted on draft day in the Not For Long league.

Browns need ya though bro.

Comment 17 Feb 2014

The best pitcher from Northeast OH is going to Louisville.  The top rated pitcher from OH is going to North Carolina.  That's like losing the top two football players players in the state.

Can't keep losing these kids if you want to be a top 20 program.  Maybe Urban should visit baseball prospects as well. 

Comment 04 Feb 2014

This is why I like the black helmet stripe that Meyer makes freshman wear.

They have to earn it to get it off.

It starts everyone  - no matter the stars - in the same place.

 

 

Comment 23 Jan 2014

The best thing is we have not only have depth at the RB position - but quality depth.

I think we will see the same at WR as well.  Lots of options for Braxton if the line holds up.

 

Comment 10 Jan 2014

The new playoff system will make this even more relevant and more pressurized.

Instead of bowl games as a benchmark to having a good program or season - fan bases and AD's will be asking coaches this question:

When was the last time we made the playoffs?

I trust Urb has seen the need for a big time Defensive Coordinator who can also adjust-recruit-and scheme - so we can answer that question simply........every year!

 

Comment 09 Jan 2014

Better schedule but it's what we love and fret about college football - more than one loss ( if you are a big ten team that is) - and 99% of the time it will mean no playoffs.

 

Comment 09 Jan 2014

Urban did say at his press conference that he would assemble the best coaching staff in America.  Not there yet my man.  

Always would love to have the fire and grit of Speilman on this staff.

I thought Tress approached him at one time but his wife's illness and young kids were a major issue.

And the problem is many of these guys can make more $ working three days a week as an announcer or analyst vs. 364 as a coach.

Comment 06 Jan 2014

This may be surprising but Louisville had one of the best defenses  - statistically  - this year.

With Charlie Strong leaving - and ties to urban - would Vance Bedford be someone we would look at?

Just thinking out loud - I know we have a D coordinator in place - at least in title.

Comment 16 Dec 2013

I know i'm jumping the gun on this - and trust me i love this kids heart and athleticism - but here would be a great redshirt candidate.  Next yr. we will be even more loaded with athletes.

He is the youngest for this class and still growing - 1 yr. to focus on his studies and improve his body and speed - then lookout.
