Re: UK Football 2011 Thread
My Toppers gave them a run, but it wasn't meant to be.
Rainey will struggle this year for WKU if they can't find consistent offensive help. For a West Coast offense, there isn't much throwing to the tight ends. That would have moved Trevathian and/or Guy away from the LoS, thereby giving Rainey more room to roam. (Both those guys are studs.)
If Newton is as good as Kentucky has at QB, they may very well not win another game all year. He's horrid throwing the simple down and outs, slants, dumps that are gravy to all but the most inexperienced signal callers in the game. His long balls are beautiful. Too bad his WR corps can't catch them unless they're gift-wrapped. I'd get Maxwell Smith up to speed as quickly as possible. Newton doesn't appear to be the answer.
Does Kentucky have a WR that can catch?
What happened to the halfback dump? Does Joker use that play ever?
For an experienced offensive line with 50 pound advantages across the line from Western, UK basically sucked. Western dominated the LoS for most of the game. With a few breaks here and there and a couple calls going to other way (13 penalties on WKU), they very well could have won.
