Will Levis showed up in all facets full of confidence and grit

No one can ever doubt the confidence that simply oozes from Levis whether it’s on the field, off the field, on social media or just hanging with his teammates.

They love him. We love him. Thank heavens his is in Kentucky blue and no longer Nitney Lion blue.

We saw in Week 1 some flashes of the real quarterback he could be, and it took a few weeks of bad passes and interceptions to flush the bugs out of his system, but against LSU he was magnificent.

During the telecast on the SEC Network, they told the story of how his mom said he needs to be 80-percent Tom Brady and 20-percent The Rock. That’s a lethal combination but can you honestly not see that in him.

Poised and composed even on busted plays like Brady he can turn them into a positive like the blown handoff to Rodriguez that was Levis’ mistake but he still turned and gained seven yards.

Cubelic asked Stoops about the leadership qualities Levis possesses.

"“Everybody has a lot of confidence in him. He puts his shoulder down makes tough yards but has a ton of talent and leadership qualities we need so he is very believable.”"

Kentucky had 10 possession in the game and had the ball at the end of the half and at the end of the game so subtract both. That leaves 8 possessions of which six were touchdowns and two were punts.

That despite the fact we failed to realize watching that UK only converted 2 of 7 third downs. This is still a sore spot that has to get cleaned up.
