Jamaine Brooks appears to be off the football team

It appears that defensive tackle Jamaine Brooks will no longer be a member of the UofL football team. The senior, listed at 6’4 and 330 pounds, was expected to be a big man in the middle of Todd Grantham’s 3-4 defense. Now it seems like Brooks won’t be apart of the team. He sent this tweet on Monday afternoon.

Nothing has been confirmed or made official to this point. But there have been rumblings all spring as to if he was still on the team. That tweet kind of takes that talk a step further.

For what it’s worth, and maybe that’s nothing, but Brooks makes it pretty known on social media about how good of friends he is with Chane Behanan and Kevin Ware. Not saying that has anything to do with this situation, I just find it interesting since Behanan and Ware are no longer a part of UofL.

Maybe Brooks just does not want to play football anymore, or just has never gotten fully healthy from last year’s injury. Who knows right now?

Quick Hitters: Spring Football Practice 3-19-14


Spring practice 001

I attended the open football practice on Wednesday afternoon at the Trager Indoor Practice Facility. Like most spring practices without the full pads on, it is hard to tell too much from what you see. But since I did go and saw more than those who were not there, I can at least come up with some quick hitting notes, so this should be better than nothing for those who could not make it out there. If you want to see the full spring schedule, click here.

*Teddy Bridgewater is not walking through that door unfortunately.

*In all seriousness, I am fully confident that by the time practice starts in the fall, Bobby Petrino will have his quarterback groomed and ready to go. Things are just shaky right now. Will Gardner looks good at times, but then average at times. Kyle Bolin is usually Mr. Accuracy, but he wasn’t today. He also had a couple of fumbles. The overall quarterback play for me was average at best today.

Football position breakdown: Defensive Line


Previous position breakdowns:

Quarterbacks

Wide Receivers

Running Backs

Tight Ends

Offensive Line

Today we continue the position breakdowns for the 2013 football season and focus on the Defensive Line. There is a lot of talent and depth at this spot. If they can stay healthy, and some need to get healthy first, watch out! Let’s see who we have here…

Lorenzo Mauldin

South Florida v Louisville

Junior

6’4   243 lbs

Mauldin has moved from defensive end to tight end and now back to defensive end since arriving at UofL. What does that mean? He is not only a team player, but versatile. You don’t just switch positions unless you are skilled enough to do it and selfless enough to sacrifice for the team.
