It’s not a big thing, but during an interview with Kentucky defensive lineman Adrian Middleton Monday he said something that really jumped out to me.
I asked him a fairly simple question about head coach Mark Stoops being more involved in the defensive work daily than he had in previous years and what that meant.
“A lot more expectations. He wants us to be great and we have to play great so we don’t let him down,” Middleton said.
I thought that was a terrific answer, and not one I am sure I would have got from any player this time a year ago.
I put Middleton’s quote on Twitter. And guess what — offensive guard Nick Haynes had an even better reply.
“Therefore ALL of UK players will strive 2 match & exceed Stoops’ expectations of their greatness!! #ContinedFruition,” Haynes tweeted.
