LEXINGTON, Ky. — Kentucky tight ends coach Vince Marrow was in a much happier place after practice Tuesday than he was in the locker room last Saturday at Mississippi State.
Marrow’s profanity-laced yelling from the visitor’s locker room interrupted Mark Stoops’ postgame press conference after Kentucky’s 45-7 loss in Starkville, Miss.
Marrow was both honest and lighthearted when describing the situation on Tuesday.
“It was just a heated moment,” he said. “Didn’t know you guys were that close to the locker room, I can say that. But, that was just a thing where if you’ve been in any football locker room, it was one of them deals. It was nothing bigger than that. Love this team, love our players.”
Mississippi State handed Kentucky its most lopsided defeat since Week 2 last season against Florida, another 45-7 result that the Cats were on the wrong end of.
“It’s no different from when we lost to Florida last year,” Marrow said. “Coach Stoops’ rule is, win or loss, Sunday we move onto the next opponent. On the plane it was very good. We was united and we ready for Tennessee.”
Kentucky and Tennessee kick off at 7:30 p.m. ET Saturday at Kroger Field.
