Yesterday Greg McElroy put Matt Elam in his crosshairs. After the SEC Network analyst called Elam a “lazy…under achiever,” Courtney Love made sure Elam heard it.
“When I seen that, I sent it directly to him,” Courtney Love said today at SEC Media Days. “That’s something we do. We hold each other accountable.”
Mark Stoops heard McElroy’s criticism. “I’d be the first to say we need to improve in that area. There’s no hiding that,” but Stoops refuses to ever call out an individual publicly. His linebacker and defensive team captain took it personally.
“When one guy gets called out, that’s all of us getting called out and we have to respond,” Love said.
“Matt’s doing fine. Matt’s going to be good. He’s going to respond to that,” Love said. “The whole defensive line unit is going to respond to that. And for that matter, the whole defense is going to respond to that because when somebody else is getting called out, that’s a direct correlation to the defense and our team as a whole. We all want to help make Matt successful. We all want to make our defense successful.”
Everything Love had to say at the start of SEC Media Days.
