Saturday Quickies: Beat Tennessee Martin Edition

New, 6 comments

The Cats should gain bowl eligibility today against Tennessee Martin.

NCAA Football: Kentucky at Vanderbilt Christopher Hanewinckel-USA TODAY Sports

Good morning all.

The Kentucky Wildcats can secure a fourth straight bowl game today if they beat the visiting Tennessee Martin Skyhawks. The Skyhawks are 7-4 but they were crushed by both SEC teams they faced.

For Kentucky the objectives are simple: get bowl eligible and avoid any costly injuries. I would expect to see a lot of Sawyer Smith and Walker Wood today if the Cats jump out to a comfortable lead.

It’s important that the team doesn’t look ahead to next week’s game against the Louisville Cardinals. I remember a few years ago when Stephen Johnson was forced to play when the Cats were struggling with Austin Peay.

I don’t want to see any panic at all. Win and move on.

The return of Immanuel Quickley solved the shooting woes that the Cats were experiencing.

Love the white helmets with the all blue unis.

EJ Montgomery hit some nice shots last night but he needs to stay out of foul trouble.

The state of every SEC fan base for Week 13 | Saturdays Down South- Kentucky fans should appreciate Lynn Bowden and Mark Stoops for willing them to a bowl game. And Eddie Gran for designing this offense on the fly.

EJ Montgomery is happy to be back | Cats Pause- I spoke with Mike Pratt on Tuesday and he told me that he ran into EJ Montgomery in the elevator after the Utah Valley game. He said EJ was very antsy and looking forward to getting back. He looked pretty good against Mount St. Mary’s.
