Wednesday Quickies: Big Dog Offense Edition

Vince Marrow is ready to lead the offense in the Gator Bowl

Greg Goins - Sea of Blue

Come Saturday, Vince Marrow is going to be calling plays for the Kentucky offense, but what exactly does that look like?

If you ask Vince, he’ll tell you the offense will be going in with a Big Dog mentality.

“We’re going to be physical. We’re going to throw the ball but we’re still going to run the ball, try to eliminate penalties and sound, efficient football,” Marrow said on Tuesday.

NC State brings in a unique defense in a 3-3-5, which Kentucky saw earlier in the season against Mississippi State. Marrow said he’s watched some tape to game plan for the unique defensive look.

The Wolf Pack have shown some vulnerabilities on defense, particularly in the passing game where they rank 93rd in the country, with opposing offenses averaging about 255 passing yards per game.

Maybe that means there are more opportunities in the passing game, whether it’s with Terry Wilson, Joey Gatewood, or Beau Allen.

I’d also expect Keaton Upshaw and Justin Rigg to see some passes thrown their way.

All told, I’m excited to see what Vince has planned for Saturday’s game.
