  • Receiving Questions for the Wildcats Answered

    By: LONNY DEMAREE

    Before Saturday’s game there was some consternation on the loss of Wan’Dale Robinson and Josh Ali, there was some question marks on if or who would step up and be a go-to receiver. The person happened to be Virginia Tech transfer Tayvion Robinson. As a true freshman at Virginia-Tech he was dubbed “Sweet Feet.” On the first play of the game for the Cats he took an intermediate range pass and turned it into a forty-five yard gain.

    In addition to the Robinson the tandem of true freshmen Dane Key and Barion Brown amassed 98 yards and one touchdown. Both youngsters played with maturity beyond their years with route running and good hands. So, for now against a very good Mid-American team, we think that question has been answered. Now for further answers they journey to the Swamp at Florida.
    The Wildcats highly quarterback Will Levis could use some better pass-pro in front of him. The running game will have to be better behind a Big BlueWall.

    Mark Stoops earlier said the 6 to 8 freshmen would play this year. Obviously, there is always the offense that get all the eye candy, but the defense also saw its freshman star potential. Stoops said Alex Afari can play every position in the secondary and those are the kind of guys they like to have.

    Mark Stoops said his team had only nine possessions for the game. He said he doesn’t think his offensive line is bad. He said they will fix their issues and get better. The coaches have to get a mulligan for their rhetoric for the virtues of the game they won. I’ve often said that Mark stoops is not given to hyperbole, so we think we will see a markedly different Wildcat team down I the Swamp.
    Sroops said they wanted get offensive tackle Kiyaunta Goodwin in the game late and get some snaps but Miami was ranking up some first downs and they couldn’t get the ball back. Linebacker Trevin Wallace will be back. It’s rare that you hear a coach (Rich Scangarello) outwardly say they held some things back.

    On media day a lot of the talk went toward accolades for Tayvion Robinson by the players so we shouldn’t be surprised by what we saw Saturday night.
