Josh Paschal on loss to Alabama: “This is not who we are”

Kentucky may have been down ten players due to COVID and injuries, but Josh Paschal was not willing to use that as an excuse for the 63-3 loss to Alabama, the fifth worst in program history.

“Of course, we were a little shorthanded this week but that can happen this season with COVID. It’s a different season than usual. The next guy just has to stand up and I’m proud of the guys who did step up who were thrown in those situations and whatnot, but we have to get better. This is not acceptable. This is not a part of our culture and this is not who we are.”

It may sound absurd considering Kentucky only scored three points, but the offense managed to move the ball in the first quarter. Unfortunately, the defense got burned early and often. Alabama finished with 509 total yards, averaging 7.7 yards per play to Kentucky’s 3.1. The Crimson Tide was 7-7 in the red zone. Paschal admitted that hole was demoralizing at times, but he doesn’t want his younger teammates to accept losing in any manner.

“As a defense, we really had to pick each other up. There was a time when — nobody likes losing. Nobody likes getting blown out at the end of the day, so as leaders on that team, we had to lift each other up. when the young guys got in, Coach coached them up as well. Today is not acceptable. I want you all to know that. This is not acceptable for us. We know that as leaders, as a whole football team, as a whole organization. As leaders, we’re going to put that on the young guys so the young guys know this is unacceptable. This is not who we are. This won’t happen again and we’re really going to hone that in on the young guys.”

On to the next one.

    Should have spent more practice time protesting for BLM, IMO.

    Clowns. Find a mirror if you want to know what’s wrong.

      If they spent half the time protesting as idiots like you do b1tching about it, we’d make some progress. Do people really not understand what BLM is about? It’s not a movement saying black people are all that matters, it’s simply saying they matter….too. They’re tired of being profiled and killed because they “look suspicious” to some inbred hick with a gun, and frankly, I don’t blame them. They’ve never been been about saying other lives don’t matter. If they had chosen “BLM, TOO”, would the rage still be there in white people who think that they should be treated better because of the color of their skin? I don’t get what is so hard about understanding injustice in this country. If you think black people aren’t scrutinized far more by people and police simply because of their skin tone, maybe you should look in a mirror.

      Nocode, While I agree with some aspects of what you said, the actual movement is far from just saying blm too. The actual group’s (not necessarily the people are saying blm) the group’s mission statement is quite destructive.

      Crushgroove and IndianaSucks are absolutely right. BLM is funded by George Soros and his cronies, his mission is to destroy this country, it not what the media is portraying. Black people are being used by the rich elite to divide this country. This team got sucked into the fake movement while they should have been focused on their mission. Sorry nocode that’s the reality and it’s not hard to find.

      Protesting for BLM wasn’t the problem this team just isn’t that good. This team has had some good moments this season but as a fan base we vastly overrated them. GO CATS!!!!

    This team has not played up to their potential. We are going backwards, and sorry to say but this team sucks!

      Potential? They are playing exactly to their potential. They just don’t have 2 FCS and a MAC team, on the schedule, to cover it up, this year.

    The line is fine but the gap is too big to come away with three points on three trips inside their 25.

    Life’s like a box of chocolates you never know what your gonna get. But It’s basketball season and that’s all I have to say about that.

    Don’t we play at Florida next? Well, I hope they get it together.

      The Florida game may actually be worse, after we beat them on the home field Mullen will not be as kind as Saban was. I know some of you think Saban was unsportsmanlike but he could’ve beat us much worse had he chosen to. Don’t look for Mullen to back off at any point.

    If you just watch Wilson, his throws are off target, way to high and behind his receivers. His deep ball is always 5 yards to far. We can bully and run on Missouri and Vandy. Against Alabama or Florida that simply wont work

    3-5 with no wins over anyone of significance is exactly who UK is this year. Nice to get a win over UT, though. Let’s blame this year on the COVID and look forward to basketball season.

    You can’t keep saying that after every loss. You’ve lost 5 games to 3 wins. It is who you are.
