Kentucky - In Little We Trust?

Kentucky 3-8 (2-6)
Offensive Starters Returning: 7
Defensive Starters Returning: 7
Last 5 Years Win Totals: 2-7-4-2-3

To say that Rich Brooks tenure in Lexington has been a roller coaster would be an understatement. Every year it seems the “Rich Brooks Farewell Tour” travels around the SEC, but their seems to be an encore the following season.

On offense, the Wildcats strategy will be to hand the ball off as much as possible to their All-SEC caliber back, Rafael Little. The QB situation is still up in the air and will be a rotating one until mid season.

Offense – Players to Watch
QB – Andre Woodson
QB – Curtis Pulley
RB – Rafael Little
WR – Keenan Burton
OL – Aaron Miller
OL – Matt McCutchan

The defense could get some much needed help from a strong defensive recruiting class, but it still will not be enough to get Kentucky out of the bottom half of the SEC defenses. One bright side for the Wildcats is their return game led by Little. If he goes down though...yikes.

Defense – Players to Watch
DL – Myron Pryor
DL – Lamar Mills
LB – Wesley Woodyard
DB – Roger Williams

LB – Micah Johnson
DL – Corey Peters
DL – Josh Minton
