Kentucky players admit they are excited about playing No. 1 Alabama. But does offensive coordinator Neal Brown get excited about facing Alabama coach Nick Saban and defensive coordinator Kirby Smart, two men known for their defensive success?
“I think anytime you’re going against Kirby or Coach Saban or (Will) Muschamp or any of those guys, if you’re going against — even though we didn’t match wits necessarily against each other — Coach Spurrier, I think you go against those types of guys, the guys that have reached the pinnacle in their profession, are really knowledgable and really recognized for what they do – I think that always, from a preparation standpoint, gets your juices flowing,” Brown said.
