Kentucky offensive coordinator Neal Brown knows UK fans are frustrated with the team’s lack of productivity this year. Kentucky averaged 20.5 points per game — three more than last year — and 341 yards per game — or about 25 more per game than last year.
But Brown, and UK fans, envisioned a lot more this year, and in the future.
“I think we were patchwork at times. I think we were patchwork. I think we were trying to cover up some things,” Brown said after Saturday’s loss to Tennessee to end a 2-10 season. “The offense we ran week to week is not exactly what I envision us being.
“I did think this – and I’ll say this about the kids we have right now: the results weren’t what we wanted but our kids did play hard. We didn’t have an effort issue. We didn’t have an effort issue at all this year. We’re just – we’re real thin at offensive line. We’re real thin and those guys are banged up and it showed – showed big tonight.
“And then we need playmakers. We need more guys that can make plays in space.”
