Tuesday’s Football Practice Notes

Coordinators were available for interview today. In the video above, OC Randy Sanders talks about Patrick Towles’ first day back to practice, How his offense will balance having three quarterbacks, and what type of problems Mizzou’s defense presents. Have a glance.


DC Rick Minter was pleased with the performance his team had against Georgia’s run offense, but he doesn’t attribute it to anything besides matching up well with the Bulldogs. “Some teams you just match up well with. [Georgia’s] style, scheme, players, demeanor we match up really well with. This two years in a row where we’ve just played them well.”

Mizzou’s spread offense doesn’t change even if a different quarterback plays, according to Minter. QB James Franklin is doubtful for Saturday and has missed the last two games with a shoulder injury. Freshman QB Corbin Berkstresser has started in his place in the last couple of game.

-Minter thinks the cheap passing yards that Kentucky’s defense gave up overshadows the type of performance he thinks this young DBs had last Saturday. He thought DB Cody Quinn had another good game against one of the top SEC WRs in Tavarres King.

-Quinn said he’s “never phased” by giving up a big play. “I just flush it out, and then it’s on to the next play,” Quinn said. Head coach Joker Phillips views Quinn as a very confident kid and loves the type of demeanor he has on the football field.

DB Coach Mike Cassity originally recruited Quinn while he was at Marshall. When he was hired by the Wildcats he says he just “changed jerseys, and asked him to come to Lexington.” He calls Quinn’s smile and enthusiasm contagious for the backfield. He wants to be out there and that shows in his play.

-Cassity believes that Quinn facing SEC WRs will greatly help his development as a corner. He expects big things going forward from the freshman and expects him to be in Kentucky’s starting lineup for a while.

    Don’t know why people are so excited about a close game. A broken clock is right twice a day.

    If Matt is so connected, why does he freak out everytime a story comes out? Sucks we didn’t get the Harrison twins, Cauley, MKG, Knight, Lamb, etc… Cal is clearly not the recruiter we think he is. Guess Matt is too busy inflating his own ego instead of looking for the truth. Hey Matt, why don’t you berate more callers for responding to your political statements so you can feel better about yourself?

    What the F*ck are you talking about #2? Not even this kids parents can know where he is headed. He doesn’t even know. So it doesn’t matter how connected you are, these kids will decide when they feel like it. He has to fill a 2 hour show, and considering our football is awful and it’s not basketball season, he’s going to talk about other things. Just listen to another show douchebag.

    Football season has already started? Guess somebody should tell Joker because it looks like our team never got the memo.

    I agree. # 2 go away. He was posting the same comments on another post. If Matt irritates you that much, turn the dial and listen to something else. It’s not that complicated

    #4 I agree with you on the political point. I like KSR come on it everyday. Just wish Matt would leave his politics out. He has got better though Realy haven’t seen much the last couple months. Too his credit he has made a great UK sports cite.

    3 & 6 – It’s obvious people just troll. Why not ignore them. If no one responds, they probably stop. Trolls do it because people like yourselves get mad.

    6 – listen via podcast. No dial to turn. Good try though.

    No one has said whether Towles practiced or not. He was to try today

    9 – Then don’t go log on to the internet, visit KSR, and hit play. Even easier.

    Did Minter watch the game? We were completely porous in the secondary. why would UGA try to run when they could throw anywhere they want? We game 10 yard cushions on every play and still managed to get beat deep.
    The outcome of this game was never in doubt… UGA just needed to have the ball last … they could score at will.

    Man, I will be so glad when that dude and his offense are gone.

    Kentucky is where defensive backs go to turn into TOAST.

    If Towles will be able to play, why tell the other team? Sanders tells more about his teams personal and what they can, and can’t do, then any coach I have ever seen.
