    2009-2010 Kentucky Wildcats Football

    The Blue Team beat the White team 28-23 today.
    The white team offense was made up of mostly starters. Hartline was 17-32 for the day for 199 yards and that included a 1-8 start. The Blue defense sacked Hartline several times and a kid named Burden was very impressive and Leach said he will be fun to watch.
    Lenz also had his name called many times on defense as well.
    Fidler lead the Blue team and looked impressive early as they jumped out to a 21-0 lead.
    Moncell Allen ran the ball like Earl Campbell in the second half for the blue team often times dragging tacklers for yards.
    Hartline did lead team to a touchdown on last possesion and looked good in the two minute offense. There was several times where the White team drove ball only to suffer a big sack or in some cases back to back sacks. Again, the Burden kid was a big reason.
    They didnt use much kicking in the second half, as they didnt kick off or punt so I dont know about a replacement for Matsay.
    EJ Adams did have a slight injured shoulder but nothing major I dont think.
    Hartline and Fidler both had their moments but the passing game overall was about the same as last year. In other words not many sustained drives.
    Blue did return a fumble 59 yards for a TD as Alphonso Smith fumbled an option and tried to bat it up to himself only to have a defender snatch it and return it for TD.
    Leach said it will be intersesting later on as Massokowski/Newton arrive and see if they challenge Hartline right away. I really felt Mass could be redshirted but they say he is playing baseball now and throwing around 90 so his problem physically ( dont remember if it was shoulder or arm ) must be improving.

    Coach Cal was there and Leach said, PP was right by his side. Hopefully that is a good thing.
    Also I think it shows how that UK football has improved. I dont remember too many Spring blue/white games broadcast on the radio by the Big Blue Network before.

    Re: UK Football= The Blue/White Spring Game

    Thanks for info. I heard Micah Johnson and Jarmon played for the blue so that could have been a problem for Hartline but as you said, he did an average performance. Also I will add there was 20,000 there for the game.

    Fidler was 10-24 for 110 yards and threw the ball "as good as I've ever seen him" according to Rich Brooks.

    Keep in mind that the Netowns and Massakowski's arent there yet officially.

    I'm guessing it's Hartline's to lose, but he's lost it before. Kentucky's defense may be the second or third best D in the SEC this year.

    That hasn't happened since 1977, Fran Curci, and an NCAA Most Wanted appearance.

    Re: UK Football= The Blue/White Spring Game

    My gut says it will Hartline #1 with Newton #2 and Fildler # 3 only because Massakowski ( who will be a very good QB)will be redshirted. Again that is just me only.

    I also figure Newton will get quite a few snaps during the first part of season. If Hartline falters the slightest, I dont think Brooks would hesitate to move Newton to #1 as he did Cobb last season.

    FWIW..Cobb has apparently settled in as a WR and looks ready to have a big season.

    Hartline just isn't that good. Horrible at making decisions. I think Newton will take the job from him early in the season.

    I agree as far as Newton. I doubt though that Brooks will hand him the reins right away considering how tough the schedule is early. He may just want Hartline to manage well and try to get a couple of wins via the defense.
    Usually Ky's schedule gives them a chance to start strong and gets tougher.
    This year is sorta reversed. Hopefully UK can be 3-3 after first 6. Then they could be looking at 7 wins as The second part of the schedule is the easier this upcoming season.

    That schedule is ridiculous. WHY would you schedule your bye week for WEEK TWO when you had a choice of then and October? They have a brutal stretch of 11 straight weeks playing. Asinine scheduling by UK.

    If Brooks wins seven games, he deserves national Coach of the Year honors.

    Re: UK Football= The Blue/White Spring Game

    Games I am "hoping" for wins are :

    Miami
    louisville
    Louisiana Monroe
    Miss State
    EKU

    swing game : Vandy

    If they could win those games, it is 6.
    Plus you have 2 possible upsets at home in Alabama & Tennessee. (will take a well played game though to stay in it )
    Now Louisville could be better than what we think, so I am not counting that as a given.

    I feel if UK could somehow win 1 of the oct 3 - oct 17 games, then they will be in pretty good shape.

    If UK is 2-4 after their first 6, then the Vandy game may determine whether they get another bowl or not. My guess is by the Vandy game, Newton will have 3 starts under his belt.

    Re: UK Football= The Blue/White Spring Game

    Since there isnt a UK football thread yet, I thought I would post this tidbit here.
    A guy talked to Jeremy Jarmon the other day. One thing of note Jeremy said was : By midseason , Newton will be the starting QB as he is that good. He in fact said he is the real deal !

    Nice opening win for the football Cats.

    Hartline looks much sharper on his throws.

    Randall Cobb = BEASTLY.

    I love the way they're getting him involved in a plethora of different packages and looks.

    Now we've got two weeks for the coaches to dissect the game film and get our boys ready to hopefully give Loserville a beat down.

    Hartline looked much more confident in throwing downfield as well. Having Matthews and Cobb out there to throw to should be fun to watch. Him and Cobb will make quite a duo.
    The interception in first half seemed to get things going.
    Glad to see the defense keep the shutout in 4th when Brooks subbed and Miami still had starters in.
    All in all...good game and yes..time to get ready for U of L.
    UK has to win that one with the next four being some of the SEC the big boys.
