Kentucky had Their Best Tuesday Practice of the 2017 Season

While you were refreshing KSR for updates on University-6, the Kentucky football team went back to work.  Their first full contact practice since the Florida loss, they transformed their frustrations into positive production on the practice field.

“We watched the film yesterday and got it corrected.  Today was a new day.  It probably was our best Tuesday practice this year,” wide receiver Chuck Walker said.

Offensive coordinator Eddie Gran agreed with the UK wide receiver who was named MVP of Saturday’s game.

“Great practice.  It’s awesome to get back on the field,” Gran said.  “It was just really good to get back out here.  It helps you get that taste out of your mouth.  It was really good.”

Quarterback Stephen Johnson believes there are still some lingering side effects from the devastating loss, but the team has turned those negatives into positives.

“Everybody’s still a little upset from Florida, but we’ve all moved on, ready to move on to Eastern Michigan,” Johnson said.  “Knowing that we had a chance to win that game really set fire underneath our butts. It definitely helped us out for today’s practice and hopefully going forward.”

The negatives are much more memorable than the positives, but there was still plenty of good to be taken away from the game.  Moving forward, the offense has more confidence to put points on the board after excelling for most of the game against an athletic Florida defense.

“Everybody is really maturing in this offense, especially after Saturday’s game and knowing how close we were, knowing how much we can do offensively.  Throughout the team, everybody’s stepping up.”

    Love this team. Florida was a bummer, but, have to say I don’t expect us being an underdog to anyone (except UGA-they look good enough to beat the Tide) in the remaining games. I would really, really like to see us pull away from EMU early and win very convincingly and do it again next week against Mizzu.

    Of course Gran thought his guys had a great practice. His offense was probably going against 10 defenders.

      TBW3011, somebody said “I don’t care who you are, that is funny right there.”….and he was right! Just hope in future games opponents don’t employ a formation UK coaches haven’t seen, because, uh, well, uh….they score unbelievably EASY touchdowns!

    Barker will be the QB before the season ends. Not due to injury either. Wait and see.

    Better be or we get humiliated. I’d say 42-14 USC based on what I’ve seen this year.

      Lol. And? You found a comment that may end up not being correct. Congrats. I honestly feel sorry for you. Captain Gotcha to the rescue! Get a life for real. It’s sad.

      Nice prediction on the USC game, TBW3011, you were only a wee bit off. Maybe you’ll get it right next time.

      Notice the first sentence. That wasn’t a prediction. That was, IF we performed like the first 2 games we’d get crushed. We were much improved thankfully.

      I’d say anyone who watched the UF game is aware of what “credibility” the 10 defenders statement holds.
