All about the offense


LEXINGTON, Ky. (WTVQ) – Mark Stoops deals with different problems than Nick Saban at Alabama.

The Tide often hears it’s great; and Saban has to remind them how to work hard with a bullseye on their chest every week.

It’s not the same for Stoops and the Cats.  The offensive line heard it was deep and great and it’s just now getting tweaked up to where it needs to be.

UK is just scratching the surface of what it can be.  The Cats are improving week-to-week and figuring out ways to win.

The offense has stepped up when needed for the defense and vice versa.  The players believe there’s more out there for them, especially on “O” and Eddie Gran loves hearing that.

The wide receivers have still been inconsistent in 2017.  But that could be a positive thing.  More reps have been turned in by guys down the depth chart and that bodes well moving forward.

Just ask co-OC Darin Hinshaw his take on some of the guys stepping up to make plays by making catches.

Hear from Stoops, Gran and Hinshaw in the video.
