The Big Blue Daily Mail -- How Good Can UK Football Be?

Obviously, some people not fans of UK are wondering if UK can actually threaten the big boys this year, or if they are simply the same old model year with a new coat of paint.  Frankly, against Miami of Ohio, it's probably a little hard to tell.

I keep noticing the commentary around the Wildcats' most recent performance is pretty consistent:

  • Can Mike Hartline play that well against a BCS opponent?
  • How badly will UK's poor kicking game wind up hurting them when the going gets tough?
  • Is this how the defensive ends are going to play all year?
  • How good is Chris Matthews, really?
  • How sound is Derrick Locke's knee?

For now, I will leave it to others to answer that question.  For my part, I simply pose them for continued cogitation and discussion.  And now for the news:

    "You put a lot of speed out there on the field," Phillips said. "It's nothing more than the triple option. If we said that when we first put this in, it would get really ugly. We're not running ‘triple option,' we're running the ‘Wildcat.' "

    Hilarious. Anyone that doesn't know the Wildcat is really a triple option hasn't watched much college football. The triple option, when run well, is very difficult to defend. The problem is, it's rare to find a player who is capable of properly running it from the QB spot.

    Very classy comments by Matt Jones, and I totally applaud his support for Gillispie's rehabilitation. Struggles with alcohol abuse have ruined many lives, and I am glad for Coach Gillispie's sake that he is seeking treatment, and I join Matt in wishing him nothing but success.
