Following Wednesday’s practice, Denzil Ware was asked about some trash talk coming from the Southern Miss players after they shocked Kentucky in Commonwealth Stadium last fall.
Ware acknowledged there was some talking, but said what happens on the field will decide the winner on Saturday:
“They’re a respectable team. I respect them. They have my respect. I respect every 11 guys that’s gonna be on the field, just like they probably respect us. But at the end of the day, they can talk about my mama, my daddy, my cousin — it don’t matter. It’s whoever gonna hit the hardest and whoever come out on top at the end of the day.”
Here’s the video from our good friend and former colleague T.J. Beisner over at KSTV:
Denzil Ware is one of my favorite UK players of all-time.
