Afternoon Football Notes Want to Hear Matt and Drew from Greenwich

spring football media packet

 

– Today began the second half of the Spring season with the Cats making slight changes to the practice plan. While the Cats’ primary focus still lies in fundamentals and installation work, Stoops is beginning to integrate game-like situations into the daily routine.  Today the 2-minute drill was running at top speed when the media arrived on scene (there may have been a 50-yard bomb at one point). Stoops said they will start working in more and more as the Blue/White game draws closer (only 12 more days!).

 

– Neal Brown isn’t anxious to set a depth chart in stone. His new, very young team is still discovering itself and it may take some time to know what the Cats will look like on the field next fall. “It may take until we get to fall camp. We have to figure out who we are; who are our best 11 players, then who our best 10 are. It’s a work in progress but right now I would say you may see one or more of those guys [TEs] out there a lot.”  He went on to say that the depth chart is constantly changing, putting an emphasis on ‘moving days’. “The depth chart here is fluid. We are basically basing everything off of what we saw in 8 days of work. We’re not holding anything positive or negative against them from the past. Those scrimmages, I call them ‘moving days’; you only get 3 opportunities. They can make big jumps; we take a lot more credence than those other 12 days.”

 

– Even though Matt and Ryan liked what they saw from Bookie during last Wednesday’s open practice for the media, Coach Brown said today, “Bookie’s gotta show up.”

 

– Vince Marrow has had some early recruiting success, but the position he is coaching is now starting to garner attention. Neal Brown said that the TE competition  is only rivaled by the QBs. Tyler Robinson and Jordan Aumiller were originally labeled as “blocking tight ends” but have developed a much better passing game in the past 3 weeks. JUCO transfer Steven Borden has proven to have exceptional athleticism along with Ronnie Shields. Both have been lining up at a variety of spots; from H-back, to on the line, to split out at slot Wide Receiver. Who knows where they will play exactly but the coaches are determined to find them a spot on the field. With the WRs dropping passes, the QBs will have to rely more heavily on the TEs to catch passes than in the past.

 

– Speaking of TEs, the most recent great Kentucky Tight End, Jacob Tamme was at practice today. I’m sure the Denver Bronco has trouble staying away from Lexington when Keeneland is upon us.

    #7, Companies began use browsing habits and other data collected from users to make ads more personalized. Apparently, they are just using your browsing history to target you with advertising. Probably not as big of a disgrace to you as you are implying.

    Not expecting anything from this coming season, in regards to the record. I do expect us to improve greatly from last season, but we are playing the toughest schedule in the nation next season. Stoops really should get a pass on next season as long as we see improvement.

    Louisville is NOT elite, but could become elite. The fan support is there, and I think Pitino is a terrific coach if he stays. They need another 5 years of final fours and such to work them into that conversation. 28 years since their last championship does not qualify as an elite team.
