Kentucky football’s Mark Stoops reacts to Tennessee’s stunning loss to Georgia State


Mark, you’re 14 and a half point favorite
this week, you opened up as a 14 and a half point favorite. What’d you think when you heard
that Georgia State beat Tennessee? [BLANK_AUDIO]>>I got an opportunity to watch some of
that, and so I was watching it unfold and you know it can happen to any of us. So I’m not gonna sit up here and
throw any stones, that’s for sure. You heard me say, you get an opportunity to be humbled
every seven days sitting up here. So I’m not gonna get out in front of
my skis, experience matters, right? So been there before, but no, I think,
it’s just across college football. These are young kids, we don’t get any
exhibition games or anything, I mean, we just practice against ourselves. And so early on it’s very difficult
because if you have some inexperienced players, they’re just so
used to play in your team. And you go play somebody else,
they dress things up differently, maybe same place things just look
different and it’s just different. So we don’t get the opportunity to
have scrimmage games against other opponents in our exhibition games or
preseason games, so it’s tough. And I really harp on our team and try to beat it into
them that we can’t beat anybody until you stop beating yourself. And I think early on that
happens a lot in football. [BLANK_AUDIO]
