VAUGHT: Football tidbits

Saw the injured freshman linebacker at lunch along with former Cat DeMoreo Ford. Huzzie still had that great smile and used his good arm to open the door for several elderly ladies coming into the restaurant.

Does Joker have any tricks for Louisville

Qua Huzzie
________________________________________ Saw the injured freshman linebacker at lunch along with former Cat DeMoreo Ford. Huzzie still had that great smile and used his good arm to open the door for several elderly ladies coming into the restaurant. Said he was doing fine and loving Lexington. Great kid. Can't wait to get him on the field next year

Micah's head design
________________________________________ Kentucky linebacker Micah Johnson is the defense's vocal leader and he lets his head do some of his talking.
Johnson had the "UK" symbol shaved into the side of his head before the season-opener against Miami of Ohio. There may be a new design on Saturday when the Wildcats host rival Louisville in the Governor's Cup.
"I haven't decided yet," said Johnson, who sports a mini-mohawk. "I've got to let it grow out a little."
He said he plans to put in a new phrase every few weeks.

Is Randall Cobb similar to Derek Abney as a punt returner
________________________________________ Steve Ortmayer, special teams coach
"Yes, except Cobb is a faster guy and bigger guy than Derek was. But there are similarities. They both have good quickness. Punt return is a quickness game. Kickoff return is a speed game. Randall Cobb and Derek Abney have great quickness. They also have a tenaciousness. Both are tough guys."
