After careening out to an early lead that left Neyland gasping, Kentucky finds itself in another brutal grind of a game. At the half, Tennessee lead 21-13, which is a steep but not impossible hill for Kentucky to climb. Injuries on both sides could turn this thing into a war of attrition, and that might prove disastrous for the Cats.
How can UK turn this frown upside down?
- We need to protect Stephen Johnson better so he can get some critically needed passes complete. Enough with the sacks!
- Gameclock management! Can’t remember this many delays of game, and self-inflicted wounds are proving to be cumulative.
- No more injuries. Westry and Badet? Ouch! (I realize this is uncontrollable, but at the same time losing 2 impact players hurts a lot.)
- For our WRs to successfully receive. We’ve lost several vital posessions due to a plague of dropsies.
- Attack, Attack, Attack Josh Dobbs. Shut him down, force some panic, whatever it takes.
We knew this game would be a battle, and it’s proving to be a doozy. But this squad has shown us it will fight like crazy, and I still think this is in reach.
‘Til the Battle Is Won - let’s do this, Cats!
