Eddie Gran called the wrong play because his glasses were fogged up

If you weren’t impressed with Kentucky’s first possession down in Knoxville, you have Eddie Gran’s mask to blame.

During today’s press conference Mark Stoops revealed Gran called the wrong play on the second snap of the game because his glasses fogged up. Compliant with SEC rules, Gran’s breathing behind his mask fogged up his lenses and he wasn’t able to read the play sheet.

“We can chuckle about it now but I promise you it wasn’t funny at the time,” Stoops explained. “We had a miscommunication on, I want to say, the second play of the game when Eddie’s glasses–he was so hyped up, he had that mask on and his glasses got all fogged up and he called a formation wrong. He called a play wrong. He felt so bad because he could not see his play chart, so that put us in 3rd-and-long early.”

Kentucky’s second play of the game was a handoff to AJ Rose that got stuffed by two Tennessee defenders behind the line of scrimmage. Terry Wilson was sacked on the next down and Kentucky punted away with negative yardage only minutes into the game.

It’s a good thing Kentucky beat Tennessee in the end or this Eddie Gran blunder would get filed with some of the all-time “that’s so Kentucky football” moments of years past.

    This story is the most Grandpa Gran thing I’ve heard thus far. I really like Eddie and think some of the fanbase is way too critical of him. He does the best he can with the players and their skill-sets that are available to him. When he was at Cincy he had a pure pocket passer that threw for like 400 a game…he can call a pass heavy offense if our players could execute that game plan.

    I seriously doubt this story would have gotten out if we had lost in a close game.

    What’s the difference does fogged glasses make? All he calls is handoff, wildcat or screen pass or QB run. Pick one! Lol

      We have been calling those plays long before gran came to town only just started winning calling those plays in the last couple years though. Makes for a boring watch sometimes but hard to argue with the wins

    There is a balm that can be smeared on glasses that keeps them from fogging up. You’d think that company that makes it would create a huge marketing campaign to get rich during this pandemic. And of course, Asian companies would buy it for the next century by the barrels.
