5 Takeaways From Coach Pitino’s Presser (Plus Presser Video)

Louisville v Wichita State

Today, after attending Coach Pitino’s presser, there were five takeaways I took from this press conference.

First, Coach Pitino, is very happy with this schedule. He is always praising his ability to always having one of the top schedules year in and year out. This is what I love to hear because having a tough schedule makes the team better prepared for a deep run in March. This schedule doesn’t have a brutal stretch. Coach Pitino made the comment about phasing the “he** out” of Virginia”. There are 21 home games on the schedule which can be good or bad. Some of the biggest tests on the schedule are on the games on the road.

Secondly,  Coach Pitino, praised how recruiting was going. He preached on staff continuity because it builds relationships with the family. Pitino talked about when Coach Mike Blado left and how Coach Jordan Fair stepped right in and built just as strong relationships with the families. He also praised that Trey Lewis and Damion Lee helped shaped the way the staff now recruits players like looking at their personalities and how they perform on and off the court.

Coach Larry Fedora: We are looking forward to our first conference opener. Fortunate to have it at our place at home. This will be a heck of a chore against a tremendous player, a really good football team, a team that is coached very well, but we’re looking forward to finding out who we are.

What do you need to see from your quarterbacks this week in practice to kind of help you make a decision on who’s your guy for Saturday?

Coach Larry Fedora: You know, really we just need to see consistency, need to see the guys that are going to understand the game plan, be able to pick it up as quickly as possible because you’ve got two days to put it in. You know, who’s going to be able to handle that, move the chains, and make this unit better when they’re on the field.

Transcript via UofLSports.com

Coach Petrino: We’re coming off of a good win at Purdue or actually up in Indianapolis last week. We didn’t do everything right. We had mistakes. We didn’t score enough touchdowns, particularly when we get down in the red zone like we’re used to doing. But Lamar played a great game. He completed 30 passes for 378 yards and rushed for another 100 yards. Defensively I liked what I saw. I thought our guys played with a lot of emotion. I thought they played fast and physical, so that was really good to see, and when the game was on the line, they completely shut down Purdue. Looking forward to going on the road to play a very good North Carolina team, a team that’s very talented and experienced, so with that, I’ll just open up for questions.
