Truth be told, UK’s offense wasn’t that bad

Sensing an overall disappointment among the fan base with the Kentucky offense last Saturday, I asked offensive coordinator Neal Brown for his assessment.

He said that he was disappointed in some aspects, as well, but overall:

“But there is some bright spots when we look at it. Here we are: I’m disappointed in how we played; I’m disappointed because we didn’t win the game; I’m disappointed that we only ran 60 plays; I’m disappointed that we had six penalties before the ball was snapped. But if we can pay attention to details and we can get more physical, we can play winning football on our side of the ball. That’s what I told the kids on Monday when I got in front of them, and I really believe that.”

Kentucky’s 419 total yards Saturday would have been the offense’s second-best total for the 2011 season and third-best for the 2012 season.

Here’s a chart of UK’s yardage starting with the 2011 season, the year that saw the Cats’ consecutive bowl streak snapped at five.
