Hear from Neal Brown on today’s KSR podcast


Today’s interview with Neal Brown is up and ready for consumption on the internet. Have a listen as he explains why he left for Troy, what he expects from Kentucky next season, Patrick Towles’ future and the people questioning his relationship with Mark Stoops.

If you’re more of the reading type or can’t listen at work, here is some of what he said about Towles and Stoops:

On Patrick Towles:

I think Patrick — and he will tell you this — he was inconsistent. I think there was times he played at a high level, toward the upper-tier of the top quarterbacks in our league; then there was other times when he really struggled. I think he would be the first to admit that. He still has a lot of work to do. He’s a first time starter in the league.

I think his future is bright. I think he’s gotta continue to work on his fundamentals. He’s got to be a more accurate passer and that is something he knows. He knows he has to be more accurate. The good thing for Kentucky fans is nobody’s going to work harder than Patrick. Nobody’s going to put more time and effort into preparation than he is, so I really believe that he can be the player that Kentucky fans want him to be and he wants to be.

On his relationship with Mark Stoops:

First of all, we have a great personal relationship. I love the guy. I think he’s as good of a person as you’re ever going to be around. I think he’s done a tremendous job laying the foundation of the program. When he got here, it wasn’t in great shape. I think he’s done a tremendous job in the community; he’s done a tremendous job getting the facilities underway that need to be done to give us a chance to be successful at Kentucky.

I think his vision for the offense and my vision were very similar. I don’t think theres’s any (conflict) — I heard that too, especially since I left, and I never really felt that. We always tried to do exactly what we thought, going into each game, gave us the best opportunity. I understand the fans got a little frustrated later in the year; we were just a better running football team than we were passing.”

    Did anybody notice the spelling of “UNIVERSCITY” of Louisville on the picture on the side of the garage of a card head? As was said yesterday “they keep on giving”

    Brown said that we didn’t utilize the air raid because he didn’t want to give the ball back over to the other team so quickly! This is the basic “play not to lose”…”keep the game close as you can” losers mentality that drives the fans crazy. If you’re going to lose, at least make the game fun to watch and try to actually score on offense every now and then. Mumme sucked…but he sucked better than any other coach we have had and had the guts to make the team fun to watch.

      So you want the team to throw the ball and lose rather than throw/run and lose? What were you saying about a losers mentality?
