By now I think most of us have learned about Kentucky’s not-so-impressive defensive stat sheet. The following are positive statistics for a select few Wildcats:

SEC Individual Rankings

Wide Receiver, Jeff Badet

-- 1st in Yards per Catch; 34.33

-- 2nd Long All Purpose Plays

Running Back, Boom Williams

-- 4th Yards from Scrimmage; 121.3 ypg

-- 3rd Long Scrimmage Plays

-- 4th Rushing; 113.67 ypg

Linebacker, Jordan Jones

-- 1st Total Tackles; 11.67 per game

Safety, Mike Edwards

-- 3rd Total Tackles; 9 per game

-- 3rd Passes Defended; 5

Cornerback, JD Harmon

-- Tied for 1st Interceptions; 2

Safety Blake McClain

-- Tied for 1st Interceptions; 2

Cornerback Derrick Baity

-- Tied 1st Interceptions; 2

Punt Returner Charles Walker

-- 1st Punt Return Yards; 33.7 per, 1 TD

As you can see there have been productive and significant contributions by individual players. Team statistics, specifically on defense, need to improve in order to provide a spark and a stop when it takes on South Carolina.
