The Comeback: Terry Wilson Edition

Terry Wilson. Last year was Terry Wilson’s year. It was his team, and Kentucky was looking to make back to back New Year’s Day bowl games. If you were at Kroger Field on September 7th, 2019, you felt the excitement come to an abrupt end. It was like you’d just seen a car crash. Fans across the Commonwealth grasped for air as we saw #3 get carted off the field, as if we all knew he was done for the season.

Unless you’ve been living under a rock for the last three years, you probably know who Terry Wilson is. He led UK to a 12-3 record as a starter, has completed 204 out of 305 passes at Kentucky, and led Kentucky to the biggest win of my lifetime in Gainesville. The season was ready to be another historic one until the unthinkable happened.

Since then, Terry Wilson has recovered from surgery to repair his patellar tendon, has been working out with his teammates, and is (hopefully) 64 days from playing his comeback game against no other than the team that took him out: Eastern Michigan. 

Terry Wilson’s revenge season will be one for the ages, and the depth of our beloved ‘Cats are on watch. Kentucky’s O-line returns 4 of the SECs top 7 offensive linemen, according to PFF grades. It’s no secret that a highly skilled offensive line and a talented QB typically leads to wins on the field. As a whole, Kentucky returns 18 of their 22 starters, along with Aussie standout Max Duffy. Kentucky football is as deep as it’s ever been and Stoops and company has the momentum going into what could be the strangest season in football history. 

Terry Wilson has been showing signs that he’s at 100%. Just a few days ago, Terry tweeted this:

If that tweet doesn’t make you want to run through a wall, I’ll run through one for you. There finally seems to be some positive news in this crazy year: Terry Wilson is BACK!!

Let’s ball.
