Bbva Compass, It is heavier than his coaches would like, and he has not played a football game in two years. Mister Cobble but was ready to go.
The defensive tackle will finally make its debut at the University of Kentucky in Saturday’s BBVA Compass Bowl in Birmingham, Ala. UK coach Joker Phillips Cobble expects to get in 20-25 snaps as a backup, and redshirt freshman hopes to make the most of everyone.
“I just want to go there and not let my team,” said Cobble, who became eligible last month academic. “At the end of the game I want to let me know that I did a good job, I parts I had to do. I know my technique, and I know what I’m doing. I did not leave anything behind. ”
Cobble eagerness is understandable. He has not played since his last season at Central High School, where he helped the program to state titles back-to-back. Cobble redshirted in 2009 and was projected as a starter after the game to spring 2010. But he failed to qualify academically.
This was a stroke of Cobble and the United Kingdom. Because he missed a second consecutive season regular, this game will redshirt his freshman year in a match. It has only three seasons of eligibility left.
What can reasonably expect the UK Cobble? It is listed at 6 feet and 321 pounds, but he admits 10-15 pounds overweight. Phillips said it was all about getting the wheels in playing shape.
Cobble was on scout team, which is not normally subject to the same conditioning. Phillips intends to give him a heavy workload.
“It’s a lot for a defensive lineman,” said the coach. “We will have to ensure that it is under control. He does not try to do anything outside the plans. He has to play as aggressive as it was in practice. In spring practice, he a lot of plays. ”
How did Cobble in this situation? Mister Cobble ladies man upset Mister Cobble football player.
Cobble said he was more interested in the dating of the study. But when he found out during fall camp that he was ineligible academic, he said he began thinking about their choices and shifted its priorities.
“I had to stop dithering,” he said. “I tried not to be lazy. If I keep doing what I’ll be back in Louisville. I used this as my motivation. … I started to concentrate on my books and football. That’s what I’m here. ”
Defensive line coach David Turner likes what he has seen so far and it is curious to see how similar Cobble against Pittsburgh.
“It will probably be right up his alley game,” he said. “They will run the football with us. Its size can be an advantage. … If he takes what he does on the training ground for the game, he’ll be fine. But you never know how kids will react. ”
It was a long wait for Cobble.
“A successful game in there to make me mentally focused, and ready to go out with a win,” he said.
