Aside from Texas A&M, Alabama has steamrolled opponents this season. The defending National Champs have the top scoring defense in the SEC and fourth nationally, allowing only 12.2 points per game. Most of the time when teams score on them, it’s against their second or third string.
None of that matters to JoJo Kemp, who guaranteed that Kentucky would score on Alabama when talking to reporters yesterday:
“When we go out there, we’re just gonna make our routine plays and they’re gonna get scored on this week.” [laugh]
Reporter: “You’re guaranteeing it?”
“Oh yeah, I’m guaranteeing it.”
One of the things we’ve come to love about UK’s freshmen class is their brazen optimism, and JoJo is the best example. He isn’t scared of anyone, even if they’re Big, Bad Alabama. However, JoJo should keep in mind that the last person to guarantee they’d score points against the Crimson Tide was Ole Miss QB Bo Wallace, and the Tide shut out the Rebel Black Bears 25-0.
Gotta love that confidence, though.
