Maybe he only did it because he knew he was meeting with the media before the Greater Louisville Alumni Association luncheon Friday in Louisville, but offensive coordinator Neal Brown met with quarterbacks Reese Phillips, Maxwell Smith, Drew Barker and Patrick Towles Friday morning.
“I’ve got a good feel for how they learn, what makes them learn, what makes them tick, what motivates them,” Brown said. “Now what we’re going to do is turn up the heat on them. I’m going to try to put a lot of pressure on them early, see which one of them reacts.”
Players report Aug. 4 for preseason camp and Brown says settling on a starting quarterback quickly is a priority.
“We’re going to throw a lot at them and try to put them in tough situations,” he said.“I think they’re fresh, which is important at this time. I know they’ve got a much better feel for the offense than they did even in the spring. I’m excited to see them.”
