Quinton Bohanna is tired of hearing about Alabama, “We have good players too”

Entering Kentucky’s road trip to Tuscaloosa, all of the talk has been about the top-ranked Crimson Tide. Frankly, Quinton Bohanna is sick and tired of hearing about how great Alabama is.

“All week we’re hearing, ‘it’s Bama.’ I think when you gotta go against Quinton Bohanna and Josh Paschal and Phil Hoskins, those are three hell of a players too,” said the UK senior nose guard. “I’m kind of tired of hearing they’re good players. Of course they’re good players, but shit, excuse my language, but we have good players too.”

Bohanna is not trying to provide Nick Saban’s squad with some bulletin board material. A week after the SEC’s once top-ranked scoring defense surrendered 35 points to Vanderbilt, this defense is ready to prove they are better than what they showed the last time they were on the field.

“I think it’s a great opportunity to go up against a good team and show that we’re a good defense,” Bohanna said. “I know their offense; they’re explosive and I don’t think they’ve put up under 35 points this whole season, so we just want to go out and show we’re a good defense and can play with anybody in the country. This is the perfect opportunity.”

While most in the fanbase may look like deer in headlights ahead of Kentucky’s daunting matchup with Alabama, the Wildcats are entering this game with exactly what they need to pull off an improbable upset, confidence.

“It’s human nature to have a little extra pep in your step (against the No. 1 team),” said Bohanna. “It’s a new opponent and it’s the best opponent. We’re ready to go I think.”

    Well, they tend to win national championships there so you may be hearing about them even after you play.

    Ok better back it up. Their right tackle is a beast 6″7 340 lbs and they have a heck of an offensive line.

    Yeah but they have a head coach who lets his offensive coordinator do his job and try and win games like it’s no longer the 90’s. They also let the best QB have the job.

      The FCC only regulates over the air broadcasters; I think we’re safe.

    I bet out defense lays back in prevent the whole game, and I bet we never rush more than 3 guys against their o-line.

    Well, okay Q. I can understand why you’re tired of hearing about Bama, but there’s a reason you are, and giving up 35 while getting gashed by Vandy doesn’t help. Bama will have drop 70 on us easily if we play that way this week.

    Prove it on the field my man! This your opportunity! GO CATS!!! GO Q!!!

    Talk is cheap. We continue to hear how good we are week in and week out. Put it on the field. Show the country how good you are. There’s flashes of good things every week. There’s also flashes of the “old UK’ every week too. Put a complete package on the field Saturday and lets see it. You want respect…. Saturday at 4pm you’ve got a prime opportunity to earn respect as a 3-4 team. Those opportunities don’t come up often when you’re 3-4
