Default Some positives from last night

Yes we know there were plenty of bad things that happened last night but a few good things stood out to me:

1. Connor Shaw continued his excellent season and is without a doubt the team leader
2. MD28 is the best rb in the sec right now
3. The student section was great last night and it will be even better for the bigger games upcoming
4. The fans in general were pretty loud considering it was just Kentucky
5. The D played well for about 3 quarters. That's better than the 2 they played last week. One of these days we will play well for 4 I hope.
6. We won
**edit:forgot to mention we finally got to see pharoh cooper

Thoughts? I know everyone will call me a sunshine pumper now...

Offense played great again.
Connor, Mike, and AJ are tremendous leaders on offense.
Kelcy played pretty well, at least from what I saw.
Finally worked in Pharoh Cooper. He's going to be explosive.
Shaw's completion percentage was impressive.
OL played pretty good.

Default Re: Some positives from last night

The D played well for more than 3 quarters last week versus UCF, not 2. UCF has a high-scoring offense, and I'm not too upset that they drove the field in their opening possession and scored the TD: it was a huge home game scenario for them. But we held them to that lone TD and was up 28-10 nearly 5 minutes into the 4th quarter, and had allowed 239 total yards to UCF at that point. Which wasn't eye-popping, but was decent and in line with our defensive performances versus UNC and Vandy.

Then the two quick big-play drives off of those big pass plays: 177 yards and 2 TDs on 5 plays. UCF even had a quick 4-play, 11-yd possession in between that Holloman intercepted Bortles. Those two possessions turned a defensive effort that was holding a good offense to sub-300 yards into an ugly effort that allowed 400+ yards in a hurry...

Then last night: we struggled against the QB keepers by Whitlow, but overall we held UK to 301 total offensive yards. Until the 4th we were shutting UK down and out. But those 21 pts in the 4th make the whole game look ugly for our defense...

So it's not that we have a bad defense overall IMO, it's that we're getting complacent or full of ourselves in late games where the scores look well in our favor. Like certain players are taking their game celebrations too early. It's inconsistency. If our passing D was bad all around, then those passing offenses of UNC and UCF would have been shredding us all games long, not just in the 4th qtrs. But we've mostly been containing them, if not exactly shutting them down. Until those 4th quarters, however...

Our D has been something of a Jekyll and Hyde story all year. On one hand, they play well enough to get our team up by a good margin in the early parts of the game. On the flip side, in the latter parts of the game they melt away. They can't stop anybody. I think our play calling becomes conservative and predictable, which allows the opposing offensive coordinator to hit us in the sweet spot. I want to see four quarters of a hungry, intimidating D.

FG kicking and running game look FANTASTIC. Doesn't look like Fry could hit it from any further from 45 yards though.

Thought Holloman looked pretty solid on defense at times.. a lot of the young guys made some good plays. They also just made some inexperienced plays. We will be fine. I mean, did you guys see that Skai Moore coverage and break up? Good lord that kid is gonna be a monster

Absofreakingloutely!! See that's what is so mind numbingly frustrating with this lame probably just recently jumped on the band wagon fans who keep blasting players and coaches on this board!! If we were just so God awful on defense then unc and ucf would have completely shredded us all game! We have gotten some substantial leads in the last three games...vandy 28-7...ucf 28-10...uk 27-7....I dunno if it's conservative play calling players relaxing due to the big lead or a little of both...I wish the defense would grasp the "don't take the foot off the gas" mentality the offense has....I'd love the defense to play a full 4 quarters...but as long as they put together 2-3 good quarters the offense will handle the rest....if we win out by 1 point each game I'll be a happy camper!! I think all the players and coaches are well aware there are issues and are doing what they can to coerce the issues....so going to keep cheering for a team I have been off the last 15 years!!

Positive

Again mike Davis
Oline
Shaw
Cooper

Add one more positive...I didn't see Byrd drop a single pass tonight. If he is finally at the point where he has improved his hands, he's poised to become a big contributor for this team!
