University of Louisville football coach Bobby Petrino seemed super excited about the scrimmage sophomore quarterback Lamar Jackson had on Saturday morning for the Cardinals.
But Jackson said it was "alright." He completed 21 of 25 passes for the Cardinals in the scrimmage but wasn't happy with the two sacks that he took and said a couple of incompletions shouldn't have happened.
In fact, Jackson said the sacks "ruined my day, for real."
"I am trying to be perfect, but those incompletions and those sacks made me mad," Jackson said. "They didn't show my ability to not get sacked. I'm still trying to get better every day."
Jackson said he was excited about the progress of the U of L offense after the first week and a half of camp. The Cardinals' first game is 17 days away against Charlotte in Papa John's Cardinal Stadium.
"We are out here grinding, trying to get better every day," he said. "All of us were clicking together (in the scrimmage). Our timing, we are just getting better all the time."
But Jackson said there's still room for improvement. He said the offense is "80 percent" right now.
"Coach (Petrino) is just satisfied right now," Jackson said. "We are trying to make him walk away with a smile on his face."
