ULM vs Kentucky Preview

The Wildcats went 5-6 last season, their worst campaign since they posted a 5-7 record in Mark Stoops’s third year as their head coach, 2015.

“It’s getting to be about that time,” Stoops said Thursday, according to 247 Sports. “We’re getting anxious, getting ready to tee it up. This first game, you always put a little extra time in. We needed it. Didn’t have the best of practice on Wednesday. We felt like we had a great Tuesday practice, came back with just an okay practice Wednesday. We had a great walkthrough today. Guys seemed to be more dialed in and we’ll continue to sharpen up and get ready for this opener.”

While Kentuckys’s defense surrendered a respectable 380.7 yards per game last season, ranking 45th out of the 127 FBS squads that played through the pandemic, they struggled on the other side of the ball, amassing just 318 yards yards per contest, good for 115th.

They’ll look quite different on offense this time around, however — over the offseason, Kentucky tabbed Los Angeles Rams quarterbacks coach Liam Coen to replace offensive coordinators Eddie Gran and Darin Hinshaw, while graduate transfer quarterback Will Levis, formerly of the Penn State Nittany Lions, joined the team and took over as the starter.

Gran called plays for Kentucky from 2016 through the penultimate game of last season; the team went 37-26 overall and 20-22 against the SEC in that span.

On Thursday, Stoops said Coen now has that responsibility, though the head coach has veto power.

“He’s going to run the offense. He’s going to call the plays,” Stoops said, per 247 Sports. “I’m not going to be out there calling offensive plays, I can promise you that. There’s always going to be situations where he’ll come to me and say, ‘what are you thinking?’ There will be communication.”

Following an 0-10 campaign, Louisiana-Monroe overhauled their coaching corps, bringing in Terry Bowden as head coach, Rich Rodriguez as offensive coordinator and Zac Alley as defensive coordinator.

On Tuesday, Bowden named the Warhawks’ starting quarterback: Rhett Rodriguez, the offensive coordinator’s son. The Arizona Wildcats transfer will have four of the team’s five leading receivers from a season ago at his disposal.

“Rhett will start the game and we’ll back him up from there,” Bowden said, according to The News Star. “He’s got very good talent but the fact he’s been raised on his father’s offense and he got here in January to learn the things we’ve added offensively was very beneficial.”
