Joe Prince
Mark Wheeler
Claiborne's Weekly Press Conference
By Nick Nicholas
It's time to place a few leftover tidbits in the ole TCP microwave. Let's warm up some noteworthy items which transpired prior to the Kentucky-Tennessee Beer Barrel matchup last Saturday.
Off the cuff with UK football seniors Mark Wheeler and Joe Prince TCP asked both players if they were surprised that Kentucky had an opportunity for a postseason berth. Here's their response. "Yeah, it was a surprise," Joe Prince said Tuesday following Kentucky's 10-3 win over Florida. "To tell you the truth we weren't really thinking about bowls; we were just trying to take 'em one at a time. We had a big losing streak (four games) and things were looking kinda bad. You can't think about bowls when things like that have happened. It was a pleasant surprise that we've got a chance." . . . Said Mark Wheeler, "During the middle of the season we didn't think we were going anywhere. It's a nice surprise." . . . Before the Tennessee contest, Prince mentioned UK's lack of execution was the squad's biggest problem during its past four losses. "We could have had a great year," said Prince. "We didn't live up to our expectations." . . . Wheeler, whose hometown is Annandale, Va., talked about the Battle For The Beer Barrel and what it stands for. "Since I came to Kentucky they've always talked about the Tennessee game being THE game of the year, pitting the Orange against the Blue. When I first got here I didn't understand the rivalry. Now, I do. It's the state of Kentucky versus the state of Tennessee.". . .What's it been like playing alongside a battling signal caller, UK's Bill Ransdell? "When he first came in he was heralded as probably the best quarterback in a long time from the state of Kentucky," said Wheeler. "He had a lot to prove. He gotred-shirted with me during our freshman year and he matured a lot that year. He's come a long way and has been asked to do a lot, this year especially. The pressure has been on Bill to come through. Last week (against Florida) he really showed his true form and the kind of potential he has to be a great quarterback. I knew it was there, it just took a little longer than everyone had hoped. Bill Ransdell is a fine individual. No one worked harder in the summer than Bill Ransdell. All summer early in the morning he'd be out on the practice field by himself throwing at tires hanging at spots on the goal posts. He was just tireless in his efforts to be better, to be a leader. I gained a lot of respect for Bill this summer." What one word best describes Ransdell? "Intense," said Wheeler. . .Concerning the senior meeting Friday night prior to the Florida game, Wheeler said Tony Mayes, an easy-going individual according to his teammate, took charge. "Tony called it," said Wheeler in reference to the seniors only meeting. "That's the first time I've heard Tony say anything to us as a group than more
than a couple of sentences in five years. What a time to do it. Tony got us together and said, 'I don't want to leave without a win. It's time we "beat somebody. We haven't beaten anybody who's predominately one of the top teams in the conference. I'm tired of losing. Aren't you guys?' It made a lot of sense and it really hit home. It's not like no one had said it before, but it was coming from Tony. He pla
