    IIRC the UK backup QB is Sr who transferred from Troy where he was the starter. He may not be much of a drop off. Guess we’ll see soon enough.

    I expect UK to try and grind out a win on the ground. I'm more concerned about just making tackles than I am missing coverage. Those young DBs looked more than willing to tackle in the open field. I'm excited to see more Elam.

    I won’t be relieved until I see Henderson back on the field. Too often we are told things are a tweak or not serious and we don’t see a player for several weeks.

    Not to mention it sounded like they were calling from a shed somewhere in the parking lot. Sound was awful.

    Thanks. Found this.

    Looks like a decent passer and runner, though won't be as athletic as Wilson. UK won't have to re-invent offense for this. Still RPO heavy, but with more of a power run option from QB.

    Throwing nice balls doesn't equate to reading/dissecting SEC secondaries, though...

    Couldn’t agree more. “Couple of 6 weeks”. That being said If Copeland is given an opportunity we won’t miss Toney at all. More worried about Henderson. One week away ok but if he has to miss more than Kentucky I’ll be worried. Henderson is one of our 2-3 most important and valuable players.

    Don't remember if he did or not, thats why was asking, however Mullen didn't said anything about him being injured in his press conference so i guess that he is ready for the Kentucky game.

    If we can get past KY without Henderson, there's no reason to put him out there against Towson. Rest him up for 2 weeks and hope we get past KY without him

    That's a big "if". . . . . if they continue to be as bad as they look, the place might be burned down by the time we play them

    This is a different issue from the comment I responded to. On this though I agree.

    I feel as though we have many more problems if we don’t get past UK. Not sure just Henderson would make that difference.

    Well that would be 3 weeks. There is a powerfulllllll Vols opponent before Auburn as well. Might be takin' the Vols a bit too lightly, but Towsen seems much more imposing;)

    Good call. Kid was a heck of a QB in Pensacola, and led Troy to 2-3 bowls. I think he was the QB when they knocked off LSU, but I'd have to check. To put it simply, Wilson had the game of his life against us last year, so I don't expect the new guy to play as well as Wilson did against us with a senior-laden OL and one of the two best RBs in school history. What I DO expect is that, once the new guy learns the offense, he will be better than Wilson was last year against everybody except us. He's pretty good.

    In other words, UK will have addition by subtraction by season's end, but probably not against us.

    Coach speak. Anyone want to roll dice for a bet? Err an internet beer! We won't know until they step on the field.

    I see I'm not the only one who uses Swype. The original was sooo much better.

    Believe it or not, Towson might have the best passing attack Florida will see before the Gators go to Baton Rouge. Towson’s starter at QB is Tom Flacco, Joe’s little brother. He’s pretty good.

    Towson’s built themselves a nice little program. They went down to Baton Rouge and gave LSU fits back in 2012.
