The football Cats have stepped up the defense the past outings and are ranked 49th in the nation in total defensive yardage given up per game.
The offense is even better in the stats department...sitting at 25th in the country in total yardage gained per game.
But Mark Stoops is a blue-collar, Youngstown, Ohio-kind-of guy who loves his defense...and rarely likes spending time in the offense's way during practice.
Every now and then he ventures in to check on the unit's progress...and that meeting goes something like this.
Check out the video to hear from Stoops.
