Ok so Kentucky football won’t appear on Sportscenter’s top plays of the week very often in football, basketball is a different story. Maybe on the SEC Network but still not a lot of hype.

We’ve missed that kind of excitement that brings us to our feet at Kroger Field and jumping off the couch in our living rooms. Where is the big bang plays? Why don’t we have more?

For us Big Blue fans it’s usually racking up a bunch of yards with short carries, but we long for the home run ball or finding a seam the Big Blue Wall has opened up and listening to the excitement in Leach’s voice counting down the yardage to the endzone.

We don’t need it from just one player or multiple times but simply some of them sprinkled throughout a game. That could easily come in Saturday’s opener with a ULM defense that isn’t very good.

Kentucky has had some great highlight reel players over the years, with the most recent one being Bowden. How about when he carved up Louisville in 2019.

We have the big run breakers in Chris Rodriguez and Kavosiey Smoke in the backfield. There is Wan’dale Robinson lining up in the slot and outside this season that could be off to the races once a ball from Levis lands in his arms. There are the tight ends mentioned above that can get us some big chunks of yards.

Levis can go under center or out of the shotgun and is mobile with good vision to make things happen. Ok not expecting a Bowden repeat back there but we are craving any kind of big-time highlight play.

Well, there you have three simple things that will make us fans happy on the offensive side and lead to W’s.

Next. Kentucky's dynamic backfield duo C-Rod, Smoke. dark
