For that reason, the quarterback merry-go-round in Lexington won’t stop until someone claims the starter’s gig once and for all. According to head coach Mark Stoops:
“With the quarterback situation we need to continue to evaluate that, both guys struggled at times Saturday, that had to do with a great Florida defense and us not executing. We will continue to look at that situation as we go forward…
We’re in a little bit of a quandary right now with what to do. We’re going to try to give it to one person, give him the reps and see what he can do. I think we need to do that. It has not been clear-cut at this point; it would reckless for us to name one guy at this point because nobody has taken the job and we’re going to evaluate it this week…
We need to take one of these guys to take our team. We just practice and practice every day, and play our games and hope one guy takes charge. He hasn’t done that yet and I think like most people we feel the same frustration at times.”

Pick your poison, folks. The Wildcats fell 24-7 to Florida last weekend. This week they travel to South Carolina. They’ll follow that up with a visit from Alabama.
