    Absolutely the worst play of the night for me is Wilson sliding down a yard and a half short of a first down in OT. The game is on the line there. You have to get that first down no matter what.

    It looks like he’s afraid to throw it. His first instinct is to run and he’s not good enough to do that.

    It kind of looked that way. I have no idea what he was doing.

    No idea why you dont let Snell touch the ball there at the end.
    Sorry, I just don’t see this happening, decision making and accuracy are the two most important qualities of a QB and I just don’t see him ever having either one!!

    That’s a heck of a take. I’m not sure why anyone would think they have the ability to turn it on or off.

    Kentucky only ran 50 plays.
    Benny ran 13 times.
    Caught 4 passes.
    Was targeted 3 or 4 more times.

    So 40% of the plays were for Benny.

    Either Hoke sucks so bad he should quit or the UK staff has serious issues.

    You may be right. But I also remember being on here back when Andre Woodson was a sophomore. Where his completion percentage was in the 50s and had only 6 touchdowns with 6 interceptions. No one thought he would be what he ended up becoming.

    Right now I think they have told Wilson since his turnover early this season. To be safe dont take chances and protect the ball. You could see tonight he was afraid to try to throw any ball that was a tight window. The more he gets experience. The more confident I see him getting.

    Stoops said after the game they discussed swapping them our and decided to stay with Wilson.

    Yeah, but Woodson wasn't afraid to throw the ball. Wilson clearly is afraid. Hell, he's even afraid to throw the ball away.

    This is why I say CJ Conrad has to get more touches. He'd open the middle of the field, especially since we don't have a true slot reciever.

    CJ Conrad should have had 6 to 7 catches in this one for like 60 yards.

    They started out getting him the ball. What did he end up with? 3 receptions, 25 yards. Two of which were in the first quarter.

    Inexcusable play call on 3rd and 2, but as Papa said, A&M was better tonight.

    Excellent defensive effort.
