Kentucky enters the crucial fourth season of the Mark Stoops era without a proven starting quarterback.
Though the Wildcats are, overall, experienced on offense, there are also questions at the second most important offensive position, tackle.
Defensively, UK has lost in preseason camp two potential starters, safety Darius West and tackle Regie Meant, the latter the most proven, returning lineman from a front seven that was already riddled with uncertainties.
Yet, with all that, I am cautiously hopeful Kentucky will finally return to the postseason after staying home at bowl time since the 2010 season.
