Don’t worry about offensive coordinator Eddie Gran’s attitude after UK’s offense has struggled the last six quarters going into Saturday’s game with New Mexico State.
He says he is “energized” daily and coaching as hard as ever.
“You can’t let up, and it’s our job as an offensive staff – as it came down from Coach Stoops – offensively as a staff, we’ve got to be more detailed. If their not getting it done then it’s on me, then it’s on them,” Gran said. “And at the end of the day, that’s the bottom line and so our kids have responded to it.
We had a great individual of just getting back to putting your foot in the ground on the boards and offensive line coming up with a square back, not being sideways. Running backs being better pass protectors – being high, we were getting knocked back a little bit and those are the things that can’t happen so those are the things we worked on.
“Our receivers, on a release stacking a DB. All the little things that are just basic but sometimes you don’t have a chance to go once you get out of training camp, but we used that opportunity to get it done.”
