    It's hard to believe we only had the ball 3 times in the second half last night. I still think that's going to bite us in the butt at some point, but I'm okay with it for now. The problem will be when we are doing to a LSU or Georgia, and need to put up points in the second half. We showed it against Miami -- we just don't have that experience.

    I'd really like us to get more passing reps in the game, because at some point, we are going to play a team that has them and we don't. There's no reason to give that team an advantage.

    The other issue is that UK is probably the weakest team in the SEC. We will not go 8/13 on third down against the likes of LSU, USC, f$u or even uga or Vandy. It's hard to convert 2-3 3rd downs on every drive vs a better team.

    Dominating TOP gives your opponent fewer opportunities to score on you. If your D can shut the door and your offense and special teams not make bad mistakes, your probability of a win is enhanced with more TOP. But I agree that using TOP alone is a poor indicator of success.
