Default Kentucky Report Card

LEXINGTON, Ky. — After a rough start to the season in Week 1, things didn’t get any smoother for Kentucky on Saturday.
Kentucky trailed FCS opponent Eastern Kentucky 13-10 at halftime before a second-half surge gave the Wildcats a 27-16 win.

Here’s how we graded the performance:

Offense: C-plus
Kentucky’s offense was significantly better than last week — 436 total yards Saturday compared to 254 yards against Southern Miss — but the offensive line is still a concern. Eastern Kentucky’s defense had eight tackles for loss and three sacks against Kentucky.


The Wildcats have been forced to shuffle bodies along the offensive line, and the expense is a lack of continuity. And while the running game was inefficient in the first half, the offensive line and running backs Benny Snell and Sihiem King wore down Eastern Kentucky’s defense in the second half.
Kentucky averaged 5.3 yards per rush Saturday compared to just 2.2 yards per rush in Week 1. Snell ran for 103 yards and a score on 19 attempts. King had 61 yards on nine carries — an average of 6.8 yards per carry.
Perhaps the biggest positive from Kentucky’s offense was the play of quarterback Stephen Johnson. After backup Drew Barker was inserted for the third and fourth series — his first playing time in almost a year — Johnson returned, and reminded all why he’s Kentucky’s starter.

Defense: B-minus
Kentucky has given up 58.5 rushing yards per game through two weeks. That’s good enough for the No. 11 rushing defense in the nation. Granted, the numbers came against Southern Miss and Eastern Kentucky, but for a Kentucky defense that was ripped by the run last season, early indications show significant improvement.

For as good as the rush defense was, the pass defense struggled. Eastern Kentucky’s quarterback duo of starter Tim Boyle and backup Austin Scott had no trouble passing the ball. The pair was a combined 31 for 43 through the air for 256 yards, one touchdown and one interception.

Stoops said he was pleased with his defense after the game. Safety Darius West led the Wildcats with 11 tackles. Outside linebacker Josh Allen continued his strong start to the season with eight tackles and a sack.

Special teams: C
Kicker Austin MacGinnis connected on a pair of 39-yard field goals, and missed from 48 yards just before the half. Punter Matt Panton averaged 38.8 yards per punt on four tries — not as good as he was in Week 1.
Nothing special happened in Kentucky’s return game, and the kickoff team was leaky. MacGinnis was forced to make two tackles on kickoffs as the last line of defense.

Overall: C
Just average. Kentucky has to play better next week to have a shot at upsetting South Carolina. But like Stoops said, the Wildcats are 2-0. Kentucky will surely take that after an 0-2 start last season.

For just eeking out a win against Eastern Kentucky at home, they sure are a cocky bunch.

uk, one of four teams never to win their division in the SEC. They made a trophy case comment, really. This ain't hoops.

Awful cocky for fans of a team that defines a successful season as one with a victory over the Gamecocks.

I think KY's WR Blake Bone is one of the most under rated in the SEC . He's from SC and I hope Stoops doesn't showcase him against us because I don't think he realizes the kids full potential .

Kentucky is that one team we seem to struggle against (similar to how the Braves always seem to struggle with the Expos back in the day).

Still, very winnable game.

Regardless of competition that's a good statistic for run defense so far.

We are better and they aren't. We hung around with them last year while playing one of the lousiest football games I can remember. It will be different Saturday.

But we really don't struggle with them much. They have 3 in a row and a win here and there before but since 2000 we own them

These guys are nuts, they just eeked by eastern Kentucky, the team that hasn't beaten an fbs team. We might be a cocky bunch but for a team that is an annual cellar dweller with Vandy, boy they think they are good.

Kentucky sees us as a winnable game and they are not intimidated so we will have to turn it around starting now . We have something for them they haven't seen for 3 years .

So they all basically think that double covering Deebo is the only reason that the 2 teams we beat so far hasn't beat us. Their secondary gameplay should be to double cover Deebo, and they should be fine.


They're about to get mind ****ed. Please, leave Hayden Hurst or Bryan Edwards or Shi Smith wide open while you double cover Deebo with your piss poor secondary. Please, I implore you.

Also they say that our home crowd shouldn't make a difference? Seriously? How delusional are they?

The delusion is strong in this one:

Please stop.

I don't know of a position SC has an advantage over Kentucky and I follow SC some living in Columbia. As long as you've got your coaching staff there and we've got our staff, we're not losing to the Gamecocks for awhile.

NC State's line got manhandled by a rebuilding Marshall's Oline yesterday. They're not that good and neither is SC.
