UK Football gets “called out,” Vince Marrow responds

Vince Marrow is defending the Kentucky football program on Twitter again. This time, Marrow responded to Larry Vaught’s story on some recent comments made by Paul Finebaum.

Among Finebaum’s negative comments about the Wildcats’ 0-2 start, the popular radio show host said, “After Saturday, there’s no more cases to be made for Kentucky. It’s time to start thinking about John Calipari’s basketball team.”

Once Marrow caught wind of Finebaum’s opinion, he said UK got “called out” and it is time to prove everyone wrong again.

“I believe in this staff and players so lets do what we do best block out the noise and let’s go to work,” Marrow tweeted. “This isn’t the first time we had to SHUT people up. Go Big Blue.”

      You did not just tell the Big Dawg to shut up.

      Ignore SoBlu. He does the exact same thing that he claims to try and shut down! Pressing teams don’t like to be pressed.

    That’s what happens when you go out and lay two eggs. I’m with Finebaum on this, season is over – go out and prove us wrong.

    Paul is right! We have leaders celebrating a touchdown at 20 yard line, a secondary getting touched, penalties, missed extra points. It time to look in mirror. I hope they bounce back. Kentucky is always better when they are overlooked. Seems everyone we get props preseason top 25 or whatever the case the read press clippings think they have arrived then go and poop down their leg

      Bull. Go back and watch the tape. He started celebrating at the 30 yard line.

    Shut people up? Well, didn’t beat Auburn or Ole Miss. Opportunity missed to generate positive talk about football. Goal now is to salvage this season, if possible.

      I will probably bet on Ky this week since Vinces response.
      He does have a way of motivating his players in situations like this.

    Love Vince, but let’s be quiet, look slightly prepared and win some games. If you’d backed up all the talk leading up to the season Finebaum wouldn’t be able to say what he did.

    Vince has their backs. He should.

    But, fans are also right.

    Truth is the offense came around, but the defense has been horrible. With this year’s schedule, if they can’t turn it around it’s gonna be a long year.

    Vince always over hyping Uk football. When was the last time they won the SEC East? Marrow needs to shut his PIE HOLE.

    We are looking at .500 season AT BEST assuming Florida, UGA and Bama are the only games remaining that we lose, and honestly I don’t see that happening. Even still, a 5-5 season isn’t gunna shut anybody up. We had every opportunity to bet Auburn and Ole Miss and we pissed it away in classic Kentucky Football fashion.

      That’s a pretty outlandish statement. First off, we won’t be going 5-5, it’s 3-5 at best, unless this team is hiding something we don’t know about. Second, 5-5 would be big, even before the season started. .500 in the SEC? That’s a pretty damn good season for us. The Ten win team 2 years ago went 5-3 in the SEC, and this team sure as hell ain’t them.

    Got to show it on the field first Coach. Finebaum has the platform to say what most of us are thinking after this 0-2 start from what is undoubtedly the most hyped team in UK history.

    Those of us who have been following Kentucky football for decades just smile…..The program has teased us in the past. We become relevant for a couple of years and then sync back into the abyss which is our SEC fate. I will never miss a game, but I will never be surprised when we lose.

    I think Marrow is the one that needs to shut up. For all the expectations out of a team with veterans and depth, they have done nothing but resorted to typical KY football. I’m 35, I’m tired of typical KY football. I really thought this season was going to be a breakthrough, but now I’m wishing COVID had just canceled the season. Bossman Fat or whatever he wants to call himself needs to shut his mouth and play defense. I’m already tired of his thuggish antics on the field. AJ Rose should have been pulled for the rest of that drive, but instead he was trying like hell to make up for it and turned it over. He’s a 5th year senior! There is no excuse for the immaturity I’ve seen from some of the players and no excuse for the coaches allowing it. I hope our secondary feels like idiots and now forced to get their heads out of the clouds. Play defense!

    Let’s face it. Kentucky fans are fooling themselves into thinking UK will ever be a perennial power in football. We as a state just don’t have enough of a recruiting base. The only hope is to take 3 or 4 out of every 5 high level players in the state, and to then develop or uncover hidden gems in the football hotbeds of GA, FL, OH, and MI so that maybe 2 out of every 3 years, we might be pretty good. Of course that is tough with Louisville being in a major conference with an easier path to a winning season every year and also having a large percentage of state talent living in Jefferson county who are natural Card fans. Louisville has also done an incredible job over the years of recruiting South Florida. The perception of UK being a basketball school will always be hard to overcome. Personally, I will be happy to be consistently better than Mizzou, SC, MSU, and Ol Miss…and occasionally knocking off the likes of UT, GA, and FL. Even that seems a tall ask.

    I think it’s actually quite simple….. This team has no true leader/s. Last year Lynn ran the show, with Kash playing cheerleader for the defense. Year before that, you had Josh and Benny providing that motivation and leadership. This team is lacking leadership. Terry could be the best dual threat QB in D-1, but it wouldn’t change the fact that he doesn’t have that leader personality. That’s not a knock on him, it’s just the way most people are. Some people just have that natural leadership quality that can’t be taught.

    It’s that way on the bball court too. Cal’s best teams always had at least one player that was just a natural leader.
