  • VAUGHT: Wilson's ability to make plays shows in Swamp

    By LARRY VAUGHT

    If you have been wondering why Terry Wilson was named Kentucky's starting quarterback, you finally got a chance to understand in the 27-16 win at Florida Saturday night.

    Wilson ran for 107 yards and one score -- a brilliant 24-yard burst that showcased all his speed -- and complete 11 of 16 passes for 151 yards, including a 54-yard scoring bomb to Lynn Bowden in the third quarter and a 29-yard strike to David Bouvier to open the scoring.

    Kentucky coach Mark Stoops said those were the kind of "explosive" plays they felt Wilson could make.

    "He still has a lot of football ahead of him. Heís going to get better every opportunity," Stoops said after the win. "He was dynamic today when he pulled the ball down and ran.

    "He missed that throw at the end of the half. We felt we had that play set up and he missed that throw. We told him at halftime to go back out there and let it rip and letís go play the second half. And he made some big plays.Ē

    Wilson's perceived edge over Gunnar Hoak at quarterback was his ability to make yards with his speed and running ability on broken plays like he did against Florida.

    "Those are critical, to have a quarterback thatís very dynamic like that. Your structure of your defense puts a lot of pressure on you," Stoops said.

    "Youíve heard me talk about it when we play dual-threat guys. The fact that he can do that, as we progress and start throwing the ball more, itíll put more and more pressure on the defense.Ē

      SEC teams have so much speed on the corners to go along with the biggest of uglies that a QB like him can be invaluable to success. The way he worked the edges against the speed of UF was beyond his years and their ability to defend
      Awesome!

    That actually looks right if you look at the records. There are only four unbeatens left in the SEC, Bama, UGa, UK, and LSU. The first three are also

    I think the over/under of 4.5 wins was off.

    It says he refused to go in and so he was asked to leave the field. Don't know that he actually quit.
