Lorenzen may not best fit for 'Cats' offense

Jared Lorenzen remains the starting quarterback of the Wildcats -- but backup Shane Boyd has established himself as the best man for Ron Hudson's offense. That much is clear after Kentucky's last two games. Lorenzen has struggled in Hudson's system, which puts a premium on mobility and does not play to his pocket-passing strengths. When replaced by Boyd after a mild concussion against South Carolina and then after two first-quarter fumbles against Ohio, Lorenzen watched the Wildcats offense function much more crisply. Boyd finished the Ohio game with two rushing touchdowns, a 43-yard TD pass and a 30-yard TD reception on a screen pass from Lorenzen. In his past 10 drives at quarterback, he's led Kentucky to five touchdowns.
