– Joker also commented on a couple of big injuries for the Cats. He said that DeQuin Evans is doubtful for Saturday’s game after reinjuring his ankle. He also said that Derrick Locke is having only slightly more success than Steve Irwin with his stinger and is also doubtful for the South Carolina game.
– If Locke is not able to play, Joker said the Cats will rely more on the Wildcobb, which they planned to use to pass against Auburn’s shaky secondary on Saturday, but ended up having more space to pass. Yes, they planned to use a gimmick running offense with one of the nation’s most dynamic players to pass the ball. That was the gameplan.
– In terms of getting a team on a three-game losing streak ready to go against the team that just upset Alabama, Joker said he’s not worried about confidence and that the team leaders, particularly Cobb, have been very vocal. He said that the task of getting his team fired up after falling to Ole Miss was more of a task than getting them to remain motivated after a solid performance against Auburn.
