Kentucky football’s offense will finally put it all together

While the Kentucky football defense has stood tall the offense has yet to fire on all cylinders in a game. This is the game that all will change.

Now with five games under their belt offensive coordinator Liam Coen and his players should have all the rough spots ironed out, the chemistry just right, and really needs to play a clean game.

Bizarre fumbles near the goal line or ill-advised passes thrown are NOT allowed.

The pieces are all there but just like on a slide puzzle they haven’t quite found the right direction. They have lived dangerously all season but haven’t fallen.

They have had their bad showing against Chattanooga and tough battles with Missouri, South Carolina, and Florida. It’s now time to put them in the right order for 60 minutes.

Coen said he has seen flashes and is hoping this is the week and then lookout.

"“The one thing, after five games, you evaluate where you’re at and where you’re going. I couldn’t be more happy and proud of how these guys have played. And it’s going to click. It’s clicked at times. We’ve shown flashes in multiple different games , in different situations, whether it be red zone or third down. We’ve been very good and we also haven’t been very good. But when it clicks, it’s going to be special.”"

Chris Rodriguez leads the SEC rushing with 624 yards and Kavoisey Smoke with 124 is itching for a big game. Look for a heavy dose of these two against the Tigers. If Kentucky gets up on LSU look for C-Rod and Smoke to pound it, pound it, and pound it.

Will Levis has a rocket arm but the touch has been off. When he finds his buddy Wan’Dale Robinson with some daylight fireworks happen and that usually means points. Robinson has more yards this year 467 to lead the SEC than he did all season at Nebraska. One of the main reasons he transferred home.

Josh Ali suffered an injury last week and will miss probably the next two games meaning it’s Robinson time. Coen is going to line him up all over the field and look to get him space. That could mean a lot of highlights.

If this is the game it all comes together then Kentucky fans and players should be chanting Carpe Diem because that is what they have done.

Next. Injuries sideline McCall and Ali. dark
