C our/y


By Price Atkinson

Senior Smfl' H 'riter

Saturday’s UK-Louisville
matchup resembled a first-grade
show-and-tell, one where everyone
got a turn.

The telling was a “’ildcat tale, a
final score: UK 38, U of L 24 —
the most points scored by UK
since a 38-14 romp of Kent State
to open the 1988 season.

And though not a fairy tale, it
was almost a picture perfect sce-
nario for new UK head coach Hal
Mumme and the rejuvenated
\Vildcat football team.

“Actually what I envisioned was
they didn't score as much, but I‘ll
take it," said a victorious Mumiiie
afterward, sporting a victory lei
assistant Mike Fanoga's family
brou ht from Samoa.

T e show displayed by the new—
Iook Cats to Commonwealth Sta—
diuni‘s second—largest crowd of
59.186, was more than the 500th
win in school history.

Starting L'K quarterback Tim
Couch went first.

ln the first quarter, UK jumped
on top of the Cards 21-0 behind
Couch's three touchdown passes
on three straight possessions.
Lance Mickelsonuliininy Robinson
and Anthony \Vhite caught their
first career touchdown passes in a
UK uniform. The 31-point open-
ing period tied the school record
for most points scored by CK iii
the first quarter.

Couch, named the Southeastern
Conference Offensive Player of
the \Veek. finished the contest
with an impressive stat line: 36 of
50 passing for 398 yards and four
touchdowns with one interception.
Couch's numbers for completions
and passing yardage set school
records, breaking Bill Ransdell (30
completions) and Rick Norton’s
(373 yards) old UK marks.

“It's the best first game I've ever
had out of a quarterback,“ Mumme
said. “l le's really a tremendous

Couch said Muiiime's passing
offense was fun and rekindled
some familiar feelings.

“I had a great time." Couch
said. “l felt like a little kid in my
backyard with my buddies just
throwin the ball around. It felt
good to fie out there."

The sophomore was also natned
CNN/SI College Football Player of
the Week for his offensive output.

The output of the UK defense
was just as big. Big as in forcing
four Louisville turnovers.

At the 7:25 mark of the second

uarter, with Louisville mounting its
first legitimate offensive drive, strong
safety Tremayiie Martin intercepted
a Chris Rediiian ass at the UK 25-
yard line to end e threat. The pick
was the second of Martin‘s two—year
career with the Cats.

“I went to bed last night think-
ing I was going to get an intercep-
tion," Martin said. “I had my mind
set on two, but fortunately I came
up with one.

“M'e really made some big plays

the defensive coaches. They really
put the defensive guys in real good
situations to make big plays."

But the offense, with the visit-
ing Cards down 21-3 at the half.
started tinkering a little too soon.

“We started no—huddling and I
kind of grab-bagged things a little
bit.” Mumme said. “Some of it was
I just wanted to see what our guys
were capable of doing."

A fired-up Louisville team came
roaring back in the third period
when running back ()tis Floyd
took a Redman pitch around the
right end at 8:58 shortening UK's
lead to ll. Floyd led Louisville's
ground attack, finishing the game
netting 62 yards on I4 carries.

UK could not match Floyd's
score and on Louisville‘s next pos-
session, the Cards struck once
again, this time via the air.

The Red Baron leader, Red—
man, found Card tight end lbn
Green down the middle for a 17-
yard touchdown, capping a six

lay, 42- ard drive and whittling
lK'sleat to four.

But with the Cats reeling and
on their heels, another senior ca -
tain, Kio Sanford, made what tffe
biggest play of U K‘s infant season.

On first and 10 at the UK 20,
Sanford snagged a Couch swing
pass on the right side and caught a

ter Jason Watts. After cuttin to

defense for an 80-yard touchdown,
the fourth—longest pass play in
school history.

“He's a senior and he‘s a great
competitor and he made the great

lay when we needed the great
play," Mumme said.

Sanford gave the credit to the
offensive line. which along with
offensive line coach Guy Morriss
was awarded a game ball by
Mumme for its outstanding game.

“The only thing I had to do was
catch it and the lineman did their
job," Sanford sait . “The line did a

If Bill Curry saw Saturday’s L'K
romp of Louisville after calling
Virginia Tech's blowout of Rut-
gers on ESPN, he might be proud.

\Vhat seemed lost in the passing
shuffle from head coach llal
i\lunilnt."s‘ onset was a possible
ground game to accompany the
newly preferred aerial attack.

The running game came in
handy, especially in the fourth
quarter with the Cats clinging to a
seven-point lead and trying to milk
(hL' Clock.

“\Vc thought we ran the ball
well," Mumiiie said. “\Ve‘ve always
been able to run the ball and peo-
ple just kind of got enamored and
talk about our passing attack and
sometimes it carries over."

Carrying over were the Ill
total rushing yards on 31 attempts
— almost 40 percent of the Sl‘)
total yards amassed on 8] total
offensive plays.

Fullback Anthony \Vhite led
the Cats‘ rushing attack with 94
yards on 16 carries. including a
touchdown. The sophomore is the

yards on a day in which he caught
six Tim Couch passes for 8' yards
and a touchdown.

Freshman halfback Derrick

carries for 38 yards.

had only put up ill yards on the
ground. But in the fourth, the ( Itits

es iiiade it all possible.

“The line made big liolcs. so I
believe it's the line that really made
the yardage." \Vhite said following
the game. “\Vc just ran through
the holes."

Center .lasoii “Falls, a sccontb

to grind it out and shift from pass
blocking to run blocking. the [K
offensive line knew exactly what to

“M'hcn it got down to where we
started running the ball, we know
how to do that," the (i-foot-i inch.
269-pound lineman said. “\Ve
know how to do that so, it came
pretty easy."
