Hinshaw wants offense to control football


Darrin Hinshaw isn’t going to put any pressure on Kentucky’s offense in today’s scrimmage, the final scrimmage for the Cats before they play Southern Mississippi Sept. 3.

“I just want to take one play at a time and execute that play. I know that sounds so ‘Oh, that’s coach talk, blah, blah, blah,’ but the bottom line is that’s the truth,” said Kentucky’s quarterbacks coach Friday. “We don’t focus on — I don’t tell them they have to throw for so many yards or they have to do — we’re going to take what the defense gives us.”

Come on, Coach. Give us something.

“I want to see the quarterbacks make great decisions and great targets. That’s what’s going to help us win on Saturday. So we’ve got to continue to do that at practice and scrimmage, especially in scrimmages,” he said.

“The last scrimmage was very successful. I want to see us control the football. I want to see us take care of the football. That’s what I’d like to see.”

  1. One play at a time

    Take what the defense gives you

    Execute the next play

    Yes, all coach speak, and all valid advice for the players.

    In a contested football game, there are usually 2 to 4 plays that determine the final outcome. Each of those are one plays, and each of those are the “next” play when they occur. The problem is, no one knows when the “next” play will be one of those handful of determinant plays. The missed block could make the next play a determinant play. The dropped interception; the dropped pass; etc.

    I hope this team does exactly as Coach Hinshaw is teaching.

  2. Does anyone out there really believe that Will’s recruitment isn’t over? This would be another heart breaker to say the least.

    1. What are you talking about?

  3. “I want to see QB’s make good decisions and hit good targets”… So do we!
