On the Links: Spotlight on Defense


Dang, it’s cold this morning. Makes me wanna go tackle somebody. Speaking of tackling, my two stories in today’s Journal focused on the defense.

The main story, about how MSU prepares for teams unsettled at quarterback;

• and the notebook, led with a look at how MLB Dominic Douglas is playing, and also touching on State’s tackling troubles.

And for those of you who missed it – which you wouldn’t have were you following my Twitter feed (bradlocke) – here is a story from the Lexington Herald-Leader about ex-starting QB Mike Hartline, who blamed his teammates for his demotion. What a tool. And from the Louisville Courier-Journal, Kentucky special teams coach Steve Ortmayer blames himself for the special teams breakdowns against Florida (that’s how you handle failure, Hartline; own up to it).

I’ll have some sort of story on UK for tomorrow’s paper – probably about its defensive line – and later this morning I’ll be on the SEC coaches teleconference. Also, keep an eye out for my new SEC power rankings.

    When I watched the UK and Bama game earlier this year, he pitched a fit on the sideline after he fumbled the ball into the endzone behind him, and then the announcers mentioned that he struggles with his anger
