Counterpoint


I don't  want to be 'that guy' but I have no idea what happened in the Kentucky game that made everyone think that our football team is anything besides not very good. I don't understand how losing to Kentucky has made everyone think this team is going to win more than 5 games. I love Guy, Long, Victor, Johnny Patrick and Burke as much as the next guy, and besides them, the rest of our team isn't great. Sidenote: I had Vic, Long, Guy, then I re-read it. No one would call Kentucky an offensive machine, and they carved up the defense. They put up 346 yards of offense, and held the ball for 27:28. And they had the ball 4 plays for 1:26 the whole 3rd quarter. UK ran for 168 at 5 yards a pop. In what was one of the back breaking plays of the game, UK's fullback breaks a 23 yard run on 4th &1. Hartline didn't have a huge game yard wise, but he picked the d apart. Outside of the nice pick by Patrick and the fumble by Hartline, the d didn't stop them. There were positives.  I really like Burke, but he is not very accurate. He didn't make any mistakes I can think of outside the time control of the last minute, and I thought he was really good. I have no idea why Krag is splitting touches between Vic and Bilal Powell so much. Call me an idiot, but I think Vic is much better than Powell and should get at least 20-25 touches a game. Long, Beaumont and Guy, alongside Cam Graham make a nice receiving corp. The offensive line is a spotty at times. Like whenever Powell ran the ball. If this team is going to win, the offense is going to have to carry the show. I have absolutely zero faith in the defense. Utah was not impressive against Oregon, but it's not going to to be easy going in there. We are going to get a healthy dose of Cain and Asiata in the spread, and it's going to be tough, as evidenced by the fact we are 13 point dogs. Looking further down the schedule after Saturday night, Pittsburgh is a huge game. I have no idea if the Wannstaches are any good, but they have put up points, and they beat Navy who seems good. Southern Miss is another tough one. Fletcher seems pretty legit. I'm looking forward to this game because I hate me some Southern Miss. That's followed by @UConn and @Cincinnati which don't look promising. I'm not posting this to quell optimism, or to say that you are wrong for thinking our team is good, but I just don't think this team has it. I think most are being a little too over emotional after a tough defeat where our guys played as hard as they could. I don't think the reaction would be the same if that game was against Syracuse or Arkansas State. Ok, I feel better for getting that out of my system. Waiting for someone to call me a Cat fan in 3..2..1...
