Georgia vs. Kentucky Preview: Spoiler Alert! Georgia Wins!


Last week the University of Kentucky spent $300,000 on lights for Midnight Madness, a glorified basketball practice.  The Widlcats’ football recruiting budget last year was $336,000.  If that doesn’t give you insight into this weekend’s game then I don’t know that I can either.

Stats are for losers, but the Wildcats will be losers so the following is applicable.

Kentucky is in the bottom-half of the SEC in the following categories:

  • Scoring Offense*
  • Scoring Defense**
  • Total Offense*
  • Total Defense*
  • Rushing Offense**
  • Rushing Defense*
  • Pass Offense*
  • Pass Defense*
  • Pass Efficiency*
  • Pass Defense Efficiency**
  • Punt Return Average*
  • Interceptions*
  • Field Goals**
  • Sacks By
  • Sacks Against
  • First Downs
  • Opponent First Downs**
  • Opponent 3rd Down Conversions**
  • 4th Down Conversions**
  • Opponent Penalties**
  • Time of Possession**
  • Turnover Margin*
  • Red Zone Offense**
  • Red Zone Defense

 * = Bottom Four in the Conference ** = Last in the Conference

In 24 of the team statistical categories listed on the SEC’s website the Wildcats are in the bottom-half.  Twenty of those represent bottom-four placings and nine represent the worst number in the league.  The Wildcats are only in the top-half in nine categories (Kickoff Returns – 7th, Punting – 6th, Kickoff Coverage – 7th, PAT – 9-way tie for 1st, 3rd Down Conversions – 7th, Opponent 4th Down Conversions – 3rd =, Penalties – 2nd, On-Side Kicks – 1st, On-Side Kicks against – 12-way tie for 1st).

There’s no way this team beats the Georgia Bulldogs.  Mark Richt’s squad should be looking to knock of a little rust and knock off an SEC East opponent in the process. When it’s all said and done there will be no doubt that the Southeastern portion of the SEC is the strength of the division as Georgia will have rolled through Missouri, Kentucky, Tennessee and Vanderbilt with great success.

That’s all I got/
