We had Moon covering their receiver in the slot on one play and he was beaten but the quarterback threw a bad pass.

Why do we want 6'5 players out in coverage. Have him rush the passer and if he doesn't get there he has a better chance of knocking the ball down then he does sticking to a receiver.

Uh...Kentucky is the #20 rushing defense in the country. Giving up only 87.2 yds per game.

Kentucky will be a challenge.

But, this past Saturday, we had a good running day despite playing without starting center for much of the game, and without Richardson, and maybe others. We haven't really seen Bowman or Lingard yet.

We can run the ball as long we have the threat of QB run.

After holding South Carolina to 58 yards rushing on Saturday, UK is now ranked No. 21 in rush defense. They weren't in the top 25 on Saturday night when I wrote this (the NCAA updates their stats every Sunday). I still see Florida being able to run on every team until they get to UGA. Then we'll see.
