Terry Wilson Trying to Pay Tribute

Terry Wilson has been at the helm of the Wildcats for the past season and it’s going to take a miracle for him not be be there again this season. Now, I have never been a true fan of Terry due to his inconsistency but everything seems to be changing. On Wednesday, Kentucky legend Jared Lorenzen passed away with heart and kidney complications as well as an infection. There has been tons of messages relayed the last few days, including some from our rival Louisville. All of the current players shared a message but Terry Wilson may take it a step further.

Now Terry has gotten a lot of disrespect, including being ranked as the worst SEC QB which is just absurd. Terry Wilson has what it takes to be an elite quarterback. He is tall, athletic, and can run the RPO offense which the NFL seems to be leaning towards. He has the arm to make the downfield threat but you really never know where his ball will go. He has experienced the lowest of lows, including his season opener against Central Michigan where he went 11-18 with only 78 yards and 2 interceptions but he also has had his highlights when he beat Florida at the Swamp by throwing two touchdowns and running for one more. Terry has shown he has what it takes, especially against Kentucky’s rival opponents. To say he is the worst quarterback in the SEC after he led Kentucky into the Swamp to defeat Franks and the Gators to end a long streak. To have Franks ranked above Terry is just as disrespectful as having Terry last.

If Terry Wilson is able to pull this off, how beloved will he be? Kentucky will definitely have a ceremony on before their opening kick and may even wear some “22” stickers but if Terry Wilson changes his number for a game that would be the sign of ultimate respect and a way for him to win over some fans. As for Lorenzen, he was the one that got me into Kentucky Football. The “Hefty Lefty” inspired many and lived the dream of any player raised in Kentucky. Wic wrote a piece on him the other day (here) but our continued thoughts and prayers go out to his family and friends. In 2016, he said “Life’s too short to cry about stuff. So get out there laugh, smile, and have fun doing it.” So let’s take those words and live on. See you on the other side 22.
