An already tough season has reached disastrous territory for the Wildcats as they take a bye week…
Decisions, decisions, decisions
Coach Joker Phillips said they are going to sit down and evaluate all these pieces. He wasn't specific but the definitions of insanity is ‘continuing doing the same thing and expecting a different results.' Having said that all positions should be on the table. We have seen enough out of the first and second string quarterbacks to know that water seek own its level and it would be fool-hardy to expect either to suddenly turn into Peyton Manning or Doug Williams, both of who won super-bowls. Hence Theltus Cobbins, aka "Bookie",(pictured) was recruited to be a quarterback, so why not use him at that position?
This should not be perceived as a knee-jerk move if such would occur. No doubt the coaching staff's backs are up against the wall. Wins are needed and six games are left on the schedule. In two weeks we will see where that possibility lands. The Wildcats couldn't have a more sensitive analyzer than Tee Martin who has described his Tennessee red shirt experience.
Why use Cobbins at quarterback rather than wide receiver?
1) He is an outstanding athlete; 2) He runs a 4.4 forty; 3) He has a 38-inch vertical leap; 4) He is a 315-pound bench presser; 5) He throws a good ball; but above all he has the speed to press the edge in a run or pass option. Perhaps a Cobbins experiment would not be on the table if the receivers were getting separation and catching the ball and most of all, someone that could get them the ball when they do get open. So in Kentucky's case, why not put your best athlete at quarterback and take pressure off your offensive line.
I said I would not comment on the Mossakowski situation because 1) Most minds are already made up; 2) Either he received bad advice or he just flat give up on the team; 3) This is the microwave generation when everyone wants it right now; 4) With patience cream all ways rises to the top; 5) Being in practice watching Newton he had to know he would get his chance; 6) For those who that think Joker Phillips was unfair to Moss, for the sake of agreement, let just say that's true but if he had stayed here Phillips would have no choice, now. Given last weeks game-performance when he threw six-interceptions against junior college defenses, one has to wonder what he would do against SEC defenses.
I said all I'm going to say about the Moss situation. There you have it. I've put my blood in the water and you sharks can have at it.
Question is, can UK repeat 2006 and turn it around. There is nothing that has been seen so far this season that would conjure up any hope the putrid offense will turn around. Stay tuned.
