Even though the game against Missouri went the opposite way of what we as Kentucky fans had hoped it was still exciting to watch to an extent. The Cats were in the game all the way up until nearly halftime, but the mistakes by our special teams and offense not being able to move the ball really stopped us in our tracks. I knew from the start that our defensive backs would be in for a long day against these tall wide receivers of Missouri and they sure were.
The first and only Paw of this game goes to running back Raymond Sanders who might not have had the best running game of his career but made up for it in the all purpose category. Sanders had 40 yards on the ground with a touchdown and added 4 receptions for 70 yards catching the ball from Jalen Whitlow. He was all over the place this game and did all he could to help the team but it just wasn’t enough. In the future I expect more half back screens to give Sanders space to work with in the open field as he is explosive and has play making ability in space. But when it comes down to it our team has to do better on both sides of the ball. The defense always starts off strong, but when our offense goes three and out every time or every other time down the field they get tired and give up the big plays.
