Is the criticism of Neal Brown's offense deserved?

11/04/2014 10:42 AM

A few weeks ago, Kentucky’s offense fell flat against LSU in Death Valley. The Cats were only able to muster three points against the Tigers in a blowout loss.

On Saturday, the final score was a little closer than the 41-3 beating in Baton Rouge, but the 20-10 loss to Missouri was more unsettling for a number of reasons. One of which was the lack of offensive production.

Kentucky offensive coordinator Neal Brown saw his unit struggle mightily against Missouri. The offensive line failed to protect QB Patrick Towles. Towles subsequently failed to find comfort in the pocket, missing throws left and right all afternoon. Fans in general loathed the play calling, especially on 3rd and 4th downs and in crunch time.

Obviously, Neal Brown has been receiving quite a bit of grief after the loss, but does he deserve it?
