One Reason Why South Carolina Will Win Deebo Samuel.

One Reason Why Kentucky Will Win Kentucky is playing very South Carolina-like so far.

But is Kentucky playing very South Carolina-like though? Other than playing close games they seem to have a lot more glaring weaknesses than we do.

anyone else sick of hearing how much we were outplayed by NC State? I can't imagine anyone who has any football knowledge and watched the game thinking that.

Seems like everyone wants to make a big deal about the last 2 games the teams played. Its a new week and a new game. Kentucky very well could have been saving up their best game until they were an underdog.

Primarily because they gained a lot more yards, had more time of possession, and more first downs. Most of the time if you win those three, you win the game.....that is probably why people are saying that. Personally I am glad to have more points on the board at the end of the game (that is why we play the game) - no one can dispute that!!!!

This writer's language and tone towards our game is pretty laughable. They obviously didn't watch our first two games and saw that Deebo was responsible for getting us going in both games, and that our offense didn't put up gaudy numbers otherwise. A lot of national pundits don't pay attention to how each team game plans and what their strategies are going into each game, they just look at the stat sheet and make assumptions.

I agree it's ridiculous how much he discredits our team only to give UK a pass on how they became 2-0 playing against nobodies. He even mentions special teams helping out our offense like that's a bad trait to have. You could look at it that way, but imo I see that even on our lackluster days of production, we have other areas on the field that can make up for it. This team will be second guessed and doubted all year, but we're going to make some noise before it's all said and done. 8-9 wins are in our sights, easily.

Has he even watched us play? It's like he simply looked at the stat lines for our games and went from there. Our Offense has been fine.. sure, slow on a few drives, but it's done enough to win the games.

I think the total yards are what people are looking at. And they ran like 1000 plays on our defense.

That's when I quit reading. Clearly this guy was trying to make a deadline and just threw this garbage together with no real understanding of either team.

I cruised the kentucky fan boards and I really do think they have false hope based on two single digit wins against really low level competition. I dont really think they realize what type of hornets nest the wildcats are walking into this week. Their confidence is based purely on a 3 game win streak despite it coming against some of South Carolina's worst offensive and/or defensive teams in 18 years.

The grammar errors in that article almost made it unreadable. I guess editor positions are a thing of the past now.

Yet our offense is doing their job and has played two power 5 teams, one of whom has one of the best Dlines in the country. But I get it, being a negative poster is your MO.

Agreed. They've been efficient and made plays when they needed to. Last year we were abysmal and a perennial 3&out team until midway into the season. Some people expect offenses to keep their foot on the gas during the whole game. I think what our coaches have been doing is very calculated and methodical. They understand player conditions and our depth issues in some areas, so they're going to call the game accordingly. What's the point in putting players at risk of injury when you're already up 3 possessions late in the game? I understand wanting to run a team out of the stadium, but this strategy keeps our guys healthier moving into the next week than all those teams that try to light up scoreboards instead of just getting the W and moving on. We're doing what it takes to win and not having to bust our asses and cross our fingers in the waning seconds to do so (I know NC State was close in the end, but we were in control the entire game, and would've still been tied should they have scored & made the PAT).
