Mark Stoops met with the media one last time after Thursday’s practice before the team loads up the plane and flies to Tuscaloosa tomorrow.
There wasn’t much news in Stoops’ comments, but he did have this to say about the week and the challenge Alabama presents:
“I’m excited about the opportunity and I’m worried about us and competing at a high level and getting better. That’s what we’ve been stressing all week is having that great attention to detail, fundamentally playing better. Our communication needs to be better, so we’re anxious to get out there and have another great opportunity.”
He also said the team lost a little focus during Wednesday’s practice once the rain came down and they moved inside. They practiced in the rain for a good 40 minutes, he said, until it started pouring on them.
“We went inside and didn’t carry the same concentration we were doing the first part of practice.”
The Cats will hold another walkthrough in Lexington tomorrow morning and then it’s #wheelsup to T-Town.
