Butch Jones talked about the Wildcats today


Tennessee head coach Butch Jones chatted with the media in Knoxville following his team’s practice earlier today, and Kentucky was among the many topics of discussion. Here is some of what he had to say about his Volunteers’ upcoming opponent in Lexington:

This is a very, very talented football team. I think their team has gone through a lot of the growing pains, so to speak, that we have gone through: losing some close games at home and being in position to win some games.

They are very, very good defensively. Really, really good on the back end, very stout up front. Love their linebackers; very active and can run sideline to sideline.

We all know about their offense and how explosive they are. Obviously, Patrick Towles — we spoke about him on Monday — great skill around him. Running backs are playing well; big O-line, so it’s going to be a challenge for us, and being in an SEC environment makes it that much more. But I know our players are looking forward to it as well and the opportunity to compete again.

Jones also called Kentucky a new and good football team (several times) and said his team can’t get caught up in previous meetings with the Wildcats.

Here’s his response to the question about past dominance:

Words, Butch. Use them.

    Next two games will be tought to cover. I must do it, but you don’t have to watch or listen to the slaughter. May I suggest that you follow the antics and frolics of our own Drew Franklin as he fulfills jury duty. If the defendant is a UL fan, can you say twenty five to life

      If he misbehaved he could be IN the corner.

    This sounds to me like a coach who knows he has a superior team and is not worried. Don’t blame him. It will take a supreme effort for the Cats to pull this one out.
