WATCH: A rare Jordan Jones appearance on SEC Network

We were treated to a very rare Jordan Jones sighting on television last night when Kentucky’s senior linebacker made an appearance on “Thinking Out Loud” on the SEC Network. Jones has been one of the star players for Kentucky for a number of years now, but he’s never been the media darling. In fact, UK hardly ever sends him out to speak for the team, so it was quite a surprise to see him conducting a live interview with Marcus Spears and Greg McElroy to a national audience.

But to Jones’ credit, he did very well throughout the five-minute satellite interview. When asked about the two big conference wins so far this season, Jones told the show, “We’re ready to change the program around and make a new name for ourselves, let everyone know we’re not playing around.”

He also talked about fellow linebacker Kash Daniel’s craziness and which of the linebackers has the most “drip.”

Watch the entire interview below and be proud of the new, mature Jordan Jones:

    Even if you take into account all the team success coach stoops has had this year…Benny, Josh Allen, explosive offense, stout defense, well disciplined team….I think his most impressive coaching job is with Jordan Jones. I was ready to cut him last year, but Stoops stuck with him and coached the person not just the player. Stoops said this:

    “There’s parts of it with Jordan or any player that sometimes it’s easy just to say the easy thing to do to save my reputation is just get rid of players, but that’s not what I’m going to do,” Stoops said at the time. “This is not about me and what people perceive me as. Just kicking kids to the curb or getting rid of them or dismissing them, that’s the easy thing to do sometimes. The hard thing to do is continue to work with them and develop them and making them a very constructive piece of our program and society, because that’s what I told them I would do when I recruited them.

    “I know Jordan’s background and where he comes from and the difficulties and the struggles that he’s had. That doesn’t make it an excuse, but it means something to me to not just kick him to the curb and continue to help him grow and become the young man I know he can be.”

      The Youngstown grit shows in this team. I love the blue collar attitude and while it does lead to a couple of penalties here and there, it just MAKES this team. I love it.
