Mama’s Monday Foosball Notes

Foosball isn’t the Devil Mama, Mondays are.

Foosball isn’t the Devil Mama, Mondays are.

 

– Today was the first day the Cats took the field since the defense took a beating from the offense in Saturday’s scrimmage. During a time dominated by Rick Pitino hyperboles, it is not an exaggeration to say the offense would’ve put up a hundred points if they would’ve let them keep playing. Coach Eliot avoided commenting Saturday until he got the chance to look at film (I’m sure his anger had nothing to do with it). The biggest disappointment for Coach Eliot was his defense’s poor reaction to adversity; “I want them to come out and play with a winner’s mentality. In the scrimmage, some bad things happened early and I didn’t see the right response throughout. We’re going to go through some struggles I just want to see the right response to those problems.

You can see all of Coach Eliot’s comments here.

 

– Coach Eliot’s disappointment was Neal Brown’s success, painting a much more pleasant picture during film sessions this weekend. Coach Brown was not available for comment today, but he shared with us on Twitter the standout performers on Saturday.

 


That’s TE Tyler Robinson, WR Demarco Robinson, OT Kevin Mitchell, OT Jack Gruenschlaeger, RB Josh Clemons, FB D.J. Warren and WR Austin Sheehan

 

– I’m sure you’ve noticed the exponential difference in marketing for the Spring Game; it’s unlike anything UK has ever done. The marketing staff sees it simply as a reflection of the coaching staff. Stoops and Co. aren’t doing anything special; “I don’t know if it’s intentional by our staff to do any marketing, we’re just doing our job.” #StoopsSwag

 

Coach Cal hopped on the Coach Stoops’ bandwagon as soon as he arrived on campus, doing whatever he can to help contribute to the football team’s success. This morning he continued that by rallying more support the Spring Game on Twitter. “He’s been really supportive from the minute I got here. As I’ve said before with recruits in December and January, he’s invited us into their locker room and facilities and talked to our prospects before the games…It means a lot to us and means a lot to our recruits and our players.”

 

– Despite the defense’s struggles, Coach Stoops still points to Avery Williamson as the “Quarterback of the Defense.” While other young players are still struggling, Avery is embracing the role as an upperclassman leader. “It’s tough; there are a lot of responsibilities, especially when something goes wrong, everybody is looking up to you….I have to do what is right on the field, so they can learn how to do things the right way. It’s the same thing I did when I had great guys like Danny (Trevathan) and Winston (Guy) to look up to.”

    Why did you say that:
    “During a time dominated by Rick Pitino hyperboles”?
    Def: hy·per·bo·le /hīˈpÉ™rbÉ™lÄ“/ Noun
    Exaggerated statements or claims not meant to be taken literally.

    If that is true, then Pitino saying something is: hyperbole.

    Gonna watch Keeneland, catch the bus back to campus and watch the baseball game against Tennessee, then settle into Commonwealth for the Spring Game.

    Why should our defensive performance surprise anyone? It was terrible last year and might be some improved this year, it is still the same goup of players. All this hype surrounding the program reminds me a great deal of the hype around this past year’s basketball team. Most times hype is just that…hype.

    Let’s wait until we get a few SEC games under our belt and make a determination at that time as to how improved UK is.

    It will take a while to get the crappy loser mentality of the last staff out of these kids’ minds..The last two seasons beat these guys down pretty bad..Joker had no business being in charge and the staff was pretty clueless for the most part..Summers is one exception.
