Another big-team transfer gets waiver to play this season

Another big-team transfer gets waiver to play this season

John David Mercer-USA TODAY Sports Could be good news for Gatewood and Sarr. Alabama transfer and brother to Tua Tagovailoa, Taulia Tagovailoa, has been granted immediate eligibility by the NCAA to play this season at Maryland. Taulia spent this past season as a freshman at Alabama, getting minimal playing time behind Tua and Mac Jones, and he eventually transferred out of the program due to playing time. This could be seen as good news for two Kentucky Wildcats in Joey Gatewood and Olivier Sarr, who are still currently waiting their approval of their transfer waiver. And in Sarr’s...

These were the two of the rumored opponents for the Wildcats, and it turned out to be true. Kentucky may have, on paper, their best team ever, especially their best defense ever, and they get to put that to the test against The Tide. Do you want...

Update on UK’s 2 new SEC opponents and league’s COVID-19 testing plan

By Jason Marcum | Jason Marcum - Sea of Blue It sounds like today is when we’ll learn who the two new opponents will be, and the entire 2020 SEC schedule will be out within the next week. With college football (hopefully) starting later this month, we still don’t even know the Kentucky Wildcats’ full schedule yet. A big reason why is because the SEC decided last week it will go with a 10-game, conference-only schedule that begins the week of Sept. 26th. While we already know eight of Kentucky’s SEC opponents next season, we’re still waiting to hear who the two new ones will...

The latest odds to win the 2021 NCAA Tournament

Jason Marcum - Sea of Blue A pair of sportsbooks have Kentucky among the top favorites for next season. Now that the NBA Draft deadline has passed, we have a more clear picture of what the 2020-21 college hoops season will look like. Over at Bovada, their most recent odds to win the 2021 NCAA Tournament have the Kentucky Wildcats tied with Gonzaga and Iowa for the second-best odds to win it all at +1100. Virginia is just ahead at +900 for the top spot. Personally, I can’t see Kentucky having odds this good without Olivier Sarr being eligible, so maybe the oddsmakers are guessing he...

Raiders coordinator hints at Lynn Bowden getting snaps at QB

Jason Marcum - Sea of Blue Former Kentucky Wildcats star Lynn Bowden could end up taking snaps at QB in his rookie year. From wide receiver, to quarterback, to running back Lynn Bowden has gone. After starring as a freshman and sophomore at receiver for the Kentucky Wildcats, Bowden transitioned to QB after starter Terry Wilson went down for the season due to injury. The All-SEC athlete only threw 74 pass attempts last season, while recording 185 rush attempts for a wildly impressive 1,468 yards. Therefore, Bowden saw his NFL draft stock sky-rocket and heard his named called in the...
