    Mike Taylor great tackler but is a step slow, Morrison quick and can definitely plug gaps but missed a lot of tackles with uk running up the middle. Ball to me at this point is our best overall linebacker on the field.

    I think for a group that was largely an unknown coming into the season, they've been great. They missed Easley plugging the hole a bit this game, but they've been great at limiting the big runs.

    Just wish Taylor would stop jawing after every play. He's gonna end up costing us 15-yards at a very inopportune time this season.

    Powell is our best LB when he's lined up at Sam. Morrison is typically the best run stopper. I didn't see yesterday's game, so I can't comment on missed tackles. He sure didn't miss many last year. I like Ball a lot. He's like a taller version of Jelani Jenkins.

    He should work on plugging the holes and shut his pie hole afterwards. But the run stopping was okay, IMHO.

    The LB's were fine last night. Hell, UK only had about 48 yards rushing, and 25 of those were on the fake FG. Taylor had 8 tackles and Morrison had 7. The group played pretty well I thought.
