Takeaways from Wednesday’s Practice

Defensive coordinator D.J. Eliot, Andy Buh, Jason Hatcher, A.J. Stamps and Josh Forrest all spoke to the media following Wednesday’s practice. Here are several of the key points from a quiet press conference.

Jason Hatcher was in the spotlight.

Hatcher had eight tackles against Vanderbilt in the first game he had been playing at 100% in some time. Coach Elliot on Hatcher: “Jason is a good, not only player, but had a lot of energy. He brought a lot of enthusiasm to the field. I expect him to continue to do that and bring that to every game.” Hatcher showed a good amount of energy on the defensive line. “I think any time you get a good player on the edge, whether it’s pass rush or whether it’s setting the edge and making tackles for a loss, it definitely sets the mentality. It also, like I said, gains enthusiasm. That’s something that we’re going to need to have and continue to build on.”

On the performance against Vandy

“I think our guys have responded as good as they can. They have a great attitude and they’re working hard,” said Eliot. “We played really good on third down. Had a lot of three-and-outs. We had a better first down efficiency. Played the run well. We did some good things on Saturday.”

The defense is going to build off their performance against the Dores

“We ain’t lost no juice, we ain’t felt no step off, it’s been a long season. But we’ve still shown we can play to the top of our ability so that’s the standard and that’s how we’re going to play for the last two games,” said Stamps. “We’ve been in all this dogfights, we can still compete with anyone we step on the field with.”

The trick play truly tricked everyone

No one saw it in time to tell any of the players. “We just didn’t see it in time and they got us,” said Eliot. “They ran a trick play on us. They tricked us. We didn’t see it until it was too late.”

    I was in stands in Nashville. I had drank a fifth of whiskey. I saw the trick play before the snap. Thought I was drunk and seeing things but sadly realized that our well paid coaching staff was not very competent and that my buzz had only led me to believe this staff had a clue. Man…. was I f*cked up!!!! Whew!!! That play sobered me up….. Anyone thinking this staff isn’t full of idiots is still drunk on the blue kool aid. Don’t be surprised is Charlotte doesn’t take us into 4 overtimes and God only knows who will win. Anyone that goes to that game….. you are part the reason UK football will forever suck.

    Wonder how of a raise Stoops will get if UK beats Charlotte. He should up to about 80 million a year if he keeps beating our D2 opponents the next 3-4 years. We need to keep working. Barnhart needs to start working on getting some real coaches in here or nothing will change.

    I think Stamps should attend his English class more often. Maybe the football team should have internal public speaking seminars. This is ridiculous for a college senior.
