Listen to Neal Brown’s interview on KSR

New UK offensive coordinator Neal Brown was a guest on Kentucky Sports Radio radio this morning to discuss Air Raid 2.0 and his return home to the Bluegrass.  When asked about accepting the job, he said he appreciated the patience Mark Stoops showed while allowing him to explore other options, and then called the job a home run.

Brown also said to expect a different Air Raid offense from what Kentucky fans saw during the Hal Mumme era.  He plans to use a much faster pace with more motion, formations and personnel groupings.

And those Air Raid sirens?

He’s all for it, if the fans are.  “Whatever the fans want,” he said.

We’d like touchdowns, please.  A lot of them.

    You wanna do what the fans want? Ressurect the Air-Raid sirens by all means and the music that went with it. Best pregame excitement ever at Commonwealth. Also, you have my permission (and begging plea) to replace the pregame rap with Hal Mumme’s Jimmy Buffet music!

    Please quit saying Air Raid offense. That offense didn’t work in sec and it still won’t. It refers to the idiot in charge–mumme. Give me a break. Brown has said it won’t be like mummes air raid.

    5) to the opposite Brown said the basic concept was going to be the same as what Mummie ran. He said he put more emphasis on the running game so he would be able to run out the clock to end a game. He said he changed things with motion and formation but other then that it was the same.
    Still wanted to throw on 3 and short . We would be running a lot a screen passes only our WR would block instead of standing around.

    Um Texas A&M used this offense and they won a lot of games and produce a heisman, just saying Kentucky football is very bright.

    Texas am don’t use “air raid” offense. Lorenzen threw for 300+ vs LSU in Air Raid offense. Wow! My only problem=I wish we could have scored. Brooks was more successful than mumme. Why bring mumme and air raid up at all. Mumme cared little about running the ball and even less about defense. Referring to him ever again is pathetic.

    this should be an exciting brand of football for UK. My guess is that it will lead to a lot of shootouts. As a Michigan fan who was used to pound and ground/play action pass football that eats a lot of clock and wears teams out, I saw us turn into a score quick team with Rich Rodriguez (thank God Hoke is going back to the old ways)….that lead to our defense being on the field a whole lot. It was either a quick touchdown drive or a quick 3 and out. You will get some exciting games, but I doubt you will win any championships as long as the defense is spending a lot of time on the field. It is also harder to score inside the 10’s with a mediocre running game. Makes you one-dimensional. Texas A&M is not a great argument because, well, they had Manziel who is a once in a generation type of guy. Best of luck though.
