Wildcat Wrap Up: Georgia

There really isn't a lot to say about the Georgia game. It was a game Kentucky shouldn't have won but could have. It was a game that the offense woke up and put up decent points and stats, and the defense failed miserably. It was a game that again highlighted the massive amounts of injuries Kentucky has had to deal with this season, this week highlighted by injuries to Trevard Lindley and DeMoreo Ford.

I guess when reality sets in, this is a Kentucky unit that I think most everyone thought would struggle this year, and the fact remains that they are Bowl eligible. They competed in nearly every game, save for Florida, and had several teams of remarkable stature on the ropes late in the game. There has been improvement week to week, and Coach Brooks and co. have coached through a tumultuous offense, up and down defense, and a hard biting injury bug, to finish no worse than .500 this season. All great things.

The future looks bright for these Wildcats, as they close with Tennessee and Vanderbilt, will go bowling come December, and have a solid recruiting class stepping onto campus next fall. This season could have been a whole lot worse, so all things considered, I'm happy for Big Blue.
