Busy Day

Today after a report on Mike Hartline being out for the season, Papa Brooks talks about the QB situation.

  • Brooks said that Fidler and Newton, who’s redshirt has been lifted, will compete in practice for the starting spot for the upcoming game against Auburn. This, I believe, could be bad for Hartline in the long run. If Newton does get this starting spot and plays well, this could the beginning of a new era for UK football. Everyone knows that Newton is the future of this program and if he can show he has the SEC skills he may not give up this spot for awhile.
  • Brooks also comes out to say that Hartline is out at least two to four games. Now everything is riding on the results of the MRI tomorrow. So we will wait and see.
  • One thing we know for sure is that we will not see Cobb at starting QB. Brooks said that we will see a lot more of the wildcat formation. He also said that Cobb is a better wide out than QB, which I agree with.

This is all getting interesting. Hartline played well until he was injured. So if Newton can come out and show us what he has, UK could have an explosive offense, which will be needed with a thin secondary.
