Kentucky Coach Rich Brooks says Freshman
Randall Cobb will be the starting quarterback when the Wildcats
face Mississippi State on Saturday.
At his Monday news conference, Brooks said he made the switch
from Mike Hartline because Cobb is better able to move the ball.
Brooks announced the change after the Wildcats suffered their
worst loss under his tenure with a 63-5 drubbing at Florida this
Cobb has doubled as Kentuckys main receiver since the loss of
Dicky Lyons Jr. two weeks ago. He has played in seven games and has caught for 164 yards, rushed for 129 and thrown for 214.
Brooks says Hartline will have a supportive role.
Brooks also announced that E.J. Adams and Gene McCaskill will start at wide receiver Saturday.
