Page 3 of Final. Tough loss but we lost to a team whose 2 losses are to the #1&2 ranked teams in the country and at one of the 5 toughest places in the count... 86 comments | 1705 Views | Go to page 1 →

    Agreed, great performance from them.

    Half those runs by Terry would have went for much more yardage in the previous weeks, Aggies D was just too fast.

    I get everyone complaining about Benny not getting the ball more, but until he ran against the prevent defense in the 4th quarter, they had completely shut him down. He got some yards late in the game because they were dropping everyone deep.

    I hoped UK would win, but I never expected it. Defense played their guts out tonight but the offense has to wake back up. Nearly seven straight quarters where the offense and Benny have both struggled.
    Because teams are starting to stack the box because they know Wilson can’t make them pay, just not good enough OR smart enough, decision making is HORRIBLE!!

    I agree. Wilson beat out Hoak because he can run and make plays. All he does is look to go down and run out of bounds. He never once took on a tackler.

    Wilson taking a lot of heat. He was 13/20 (65%) and no interceptions. He may have looked lost at times but he clear was not going to force downfield throws. The problem was the per catch average was only 5.4 yards. Take out Bowden's 54 yard TD reception and you have 12 passes for 52 yards. Barley over 4 yards a catch. Snell had more yards per carry than that.

    This is why I keep asking where the slat is? The underneath zone pass? It seems all the passing is either swing passes behind or around the LOS or they are downfield on the sides where the safe throw is to go long. They obviously do not trust middle of the field down field passes by Wilson.

    Snell not getting the ball tonight reminds me of the year the Buckeyes lost at Michigan State when they refused to give Zeke Elliott the football.

    I went back and watched it again if he had just went on and was tackled he would have fallen and picked up the first down but he went into a slide.

    Turned the switch off? They lost on the road in OT as a touchdown underdog.

    Terrible quarterback. He's had some good moments but this team is all Snell imo.

    Remind me of when we didn’t let Cobb touch that year against Tennessee from the 10

    I'll have to watch it again this week, I don't remember a slide at all. He was pretty clearly tackled or tripped up short every time I remember him coming up short.

    QBs that take on tacklers, normally don't last long...unless they are built like Tebow.

    Well, can't get down. The secret is out on UK now though. Still have to find a way to throw the ball.

    CJ Conrad is terribly under utilized!!!

    Yes they turned the switch off. They were playing beast mode for the first 4 1&2 games then turned the switch off thinking they could just costs into a bowl game. A&M is very good and UK'a Denfense was lights out. Offense was horrible. Wilson is horrible. This loss is on Eddie Gran. Should have gave the ball to Snell on that 3rd down play.

    In OT, he clearly went down on 2nd down, could’ve got the first down!

    Well that sucked. We have Wilson two more years still after this. If he is going to be the guy the next two seasons, we will have to live with a lot of growing pains. However I am good with it and I do think by the time his career is done here. He will be a fan favorite we all love.

    No idea why you dont let Snell touch the ball there at the end.

    Also I am not sure if i have ever seen a 43 yard field goal left short that wasnt blocked or because of the wind. Your a power 5 conference kicker, and you cant kick it 43 yards?
