Re: UK Football 2012
27% of the season ticket holders share your discouraging viewpoint.
Fwiw, I think this could be the year the Toppers beat Kentucky in football.
Joker's gone at the end of the season, IMO. I like Smith. I like the running backs. La'Rod King is a decent little player. Beyond that? The linebackers are inexperienced, small, and learning a broken system. The offensive line, beyond two decent starters (Warford and Smith) is untested. Two defensive tackles are decent, but role players. The defensive backs are weak, a step slow, and can't tackle all that well.
Worse of all, however, is that offensive system/ play calling. It's beyond horrid. One yard and a cloud of dust doesn't get you much of anywhere and play action on third and long is pretty much asking for a defensive end to kill the QB. Joker has shown no affinity for innovation and less for recruiting.
They'll be lucky to win three games.
