Randall Cobb over Mike Hartline: Kentucky to Change Quarterbacks

Jordan ColemanAnalyst IOctober 27, 2008

Kentucky football fans received some good news this evening. Struggling quarterback Mike Hartline has been benched and replaced with up and coming star Randall Cobb for Saturday's game at Mississippi State.

Cobb is a dual threat QB, in case you haven't heard of him. He has moved the ball better than Hartline has all season, whether it has been through the air or with his legs. He is also an excellent wide receiver.

In case you missed the Kentucky vs. Arkansas game a couple of weeks ago, Cobb caught the two game-winning touchdown passes, and has led the team in rushing and passing in multiple weeks of the season.

Hartline has been struggling badly as of late. He has not been moving the ball; instead he has been turning the ball over, going three and out almost every possession.

The offense seems to run much better with Cobb under center rather than Hartline, and it has been obvious in every game that Cobb has played in.

Kentucky fans, including myself, have been calling for this change for quite some time. Brooks has finally decided that it is time for a change, if we want to become bowl eligible.

Our offense has been non-existent for the whole season, and that's an understatement. Cobb should produce a highly needed spark to possibly ignite us, much more than Hartline has given us.

Hartline, keep your head up and work even harder in practice if you want to get the starting job back. Cobb has earned it.

Kentucky fans, we can breathe easy for a little while now.
