After last week and Sanders poor stats, Judkins took the SEC Rushing lead by 24 yds.
I was hoping for a big night for Sanders and hoping we could stop Judkins. A third of the way through 3 quarters it was something like Judkins 81 Sanders like 220. Everything was proceeding as planned. Then Dammit we relaxed and Judkins got some big runs and finished with too many yds.
Judkins still has the SEC lead by what I think will be 6 yds. It will all be decided next week with Ark vs Missouri and Ole Miss vs Miss State.
Will have to look into which team has the better run defense… Missouri or Miss State. I’m thinking its Miss State. But it is rivalry week so who know what will happen.
If we had the same quality backups at QB that we have at RB, KJ would not be as banged up this season. You protect your studs as much as you can so you will have them when needed. Liberty beat us because KJ did not play AND their 3rd string QB played very well. Our 2nd and 3rd string QBs, not so much. So, KJ has to play a lot if we are going to succeed. I hope there are QBs looking at the portal and the fact that replacing KJ either next year or the next is wide open for a likely prospect.
