Don’t worry about Kentucky junior linebacker Kash Daniel not being ready to face South Caorlina’s offense Saturday night because he’s still celebrating last week’s win over Mississippi State.
“Our preparation has got to be on point. Got to know who you are going against,” Daniel said. “The quarterback is an explosive player. Has a really good arm and can make plays with his feet. He’s dynamic and not just one dimensional.
“They sometimes go up tempo with their offense. We have got to be fast to get the call (from the sidelines), get lined up right and play our assignments every snap. If we do that, we’ll be fine.”
Linebacker Josh Allen had a monster game that disrupted Mississippi State last week. What would an up tempo offense do to his play and how will it impact UK’s defense?
“Get lined up is the first thing you h ave to do. Get to the ball and stop them on first and second down and then on third down rush the passer,” Allen said. “You get tired quicker (against an up tempo offense) but it is what it is. Missouri ran it last year. I feel great about we are going to do.”
So does Daniel.
“The coaches tell us you win games through the week of preparation. It’s that simple. If you practice hard and got good communication, we’ll have that on the field. What you see on the field is what we see here each day.”
