We are not trying to be mean. Clueless is the word. As long as that word is gone by September, that's okay. And it should be. UK's offense doesn't even know what they don't know.
"As far as off the field, they don't how to prepare," says offensive coordinator Neal Brown. "You are just not going to go out here and be an SEC winning team. You have to prepare. You have to do a lot of it your own time because the NCAA limits us what we can do."
Who is going to be the quarterback? Brown says he doesn't know and doesn't seem to concerned. Today is all about teaching his system to everyone and watching who picks it up and who can move the team. The practice time for all the quarterbacks is equal. No one can grumble behind the scenes that they aren't getting a fair chance, which doesn't always happen.
"We are trying to create an atmosphere that is way tougher than the game." said Brown. "So, if I'm the quarterback, if they can execute with me one foot behind them getting on them or being positive on every single rep, I equate it as being on the first tee in golf. You got all these people and you have to execute a good shot or you are going to hurt somebody. It's the same type of deal. So when they get in the stadium, and I'm over on the sidelines, it's an easier atmosphere."
When that happens, UK should be able to score more points than last year. For today, it's baby steps, and that's okay.
