Kentucky Wildcats podcast: More opportunities should be coming to highly-touted freshman Lynn Bowden

Kenttucky-Wildcats-podcast-10-03-2017

Welcome to Wildcat Country, SEC Country’s daily podcast on Kentucky athletics with host Curtis Burch and SEC Country’s Kyle Tucker and Joe Mussatto.

In this episode, Curtis and Joe recap the highlights of Kentucky coach Mark Stoops’ weekly Monday press conference. The Wildcats are coming off a 24-20 win against Eastern Michigan, and now the attention turns to Missouri. Kentucky and Missouri kick off at 7:30 p.m. ET Saturday at Kroger Field.

Missouri has been blown out in three consecutive contests, but the defensive-minded Stoops is still concerned with the Tigers’ offensive firepower.

“The No. 1 thing you always are concerned about when you play them is their offense and the tempo at which they play,” Stoops said. “Their quarterback, (Drew) Lock, is as good as there is. It seems like we’ve been seeing a slew of good quarterbacks lately. He’s another one. He can make all the throws. And I think they have great speed at wide receiver. They have a young talented back, a sophomore back. Both of their backs are very, very good. So they’re capable of breaking out at any time.”

Stoops gave a number of injury updates, offered his thoughts on whether or not Kentucky plays down to its level of competition and discussed the offensive line shakeups, most notably, redshirt freshman center Drake Jackson.

We’ve brought in audio from Stoops’ press conference as part of today’s episode.
