Stoops talks cowbells, Dak Prescott on the SEC Teleconference

Last night, Shannon Dawson told reporters the team has been piping cowbell noise into practice this week to prepare for Saturday’s game in Starkville, but on today’s SEC Coaches Teleconference, Mark Stoops said they aren’t. WTF? Cowbell noise or not, Stoops says they’re anticipating a rowdy environment at Davis Wade Stadium.

“I was really impressed. I thought it was a great environment,” Stoops said when asked about the atmosphere in Starkville two years ago. “I really did. I thought it was just a tough place to play, a great environment. We actually, that first year we were not very good and actually did some decent things and had a chance. It was another great SEC environment, tough place to play and a very good team that’s a very mature, physical team.”

UK’s biggest challenge will be containing Dak Prescott, the best quarterback the Cats have faced so far this season. Over the past two years, Prescott has thrown for 484 yards, three touchdowns, and one interception vs. the Cats.

“You just see a guy that’s — he’s always been a winner,” Stoops said of the senior. “Very good player. You just see a guy that’s very, very comfortable back there. He’s been well-coached. They have a lot of diversity in their offense. They can do a lot of different things, and he can do a lot of different things. He can hurt you with his legs. He’s a big, strong guy. He’s just very comfortable distributing the ball and throwing the ball this year. That’s probably, I think, the biggest thing, the evolution I’ve seen in him, just how comfortable he is in sitting in the pocket and throwing the football.”

After watching all of last season’s sob segments about Dak and his mother, who died of colon cancer in 2013, I’m an unabashed Dak fan. I don’t think Kentucky will be able to stop him, but hopefully they can make life a little more uncomfortable in the pocket.

In the meantime, can we get some more cowbell in practice?

    LOL I know I’m going to get called a troll for saying this, but I’m going to anyway– how can the staff not be on the same page over something so simple as playing cowbells over the speakers??? That is crazy. If they can’t communicate correctly about that, no wonder we have 8 men on the field in punt formations and can’t run a 2 minute drill.

    Regardless of the disarray of the coaches, I am actually placing a bet that we win Saturday.
