Currently, the closest thing you can get to real football is by attending UK’s ongoing open practice or by watching Canadian football. Luckily, we are not far away from REAL football. Tomorrow at 8:00 on NBC is the Hall of Fame Game. Teddy Bridgewater’s Minnesota Vikings will take on Bud Dupree’s Pittsburgh Steelers.
Since training camp has started, we’ve heard nothing but praise for one of UK’s all-time great pass rushers. Tomorrow is the end of talking season for Bud, who’s ready to show the world that he’s ready to become a significant cog in the Steel Curtain machine.
”Speed works at any level, but when they stop the speed, what are you going to do after that?” Dupree said. ”You always want to have more than one move so if a lineman stops your first move you can go into your second move. The next move I do after my first move, I have to make sure it’s explosive as well.” The Steelers will get a first look at their new linebacker’s moves on Sunday. ”I’ve definitely been looking forward to this,” Dupree said. ”I’m just excited to be here and ready to play.”
I know I’ll be watching Bud put the heat on Teddy. It wouldn’t be the first time.
