“There’s no Kentucky (football) buzz in Florida”


HOOVER, Ala. — Any chance Florida could take UK lightly this season?

“We’ve just got to treat everybody equal. We ain’t taking anybody lightly where it is Kentucky or anybody else. Louisville taught us what happens when you don’t show up,” Florida offensive lineman Jon Halapio said Tuesday during the SEC Media Days.

While new Kentucky coach Mark Stoops have created a fan and recruiting buzz in the Bluegrass, it apparently has not reached Florida.

“No, I haven’t heard anything about. I’m sorry. There’s no Kentucky buzz in Florida,” Halapio said.

However, he knows what to expect from Stoops’ defense after playing against his defense at Florida State.

“Very intense. The way he coaches is attacking,” the Florida lineman said. “He has an attack mentality at all times. It’s lot different than Kentucky last year. Very attacking, very fast. They will get after you.”

    I like what he said about Coach Stoops defense. UK football must get beyond the mindset of “oh no… It’s Forida. We can’t win.” That losing streak has got to change! I think a big part of great coaching is getting a team ready to play, and playing above their ability. Instilling a toughness, a mean streak, playing physical, with a strong will to win. I would love to hear the pregame speech from our head coach before the next Florida game. I suspect he will hear the buzz in Commonwealth Stadium soon enough.

    Tht last statement by the Fl Lineman, just about says it all when it came to UK’s D last year. 1. A defense always playing on their heels, 2. A defense that is agressive.

    Can’t wait to see what Coach Stoops can do for our D.
