When Todd Grantham speaks…

I can imagine how this G-Day discussion went.

… The starters on offense — particularly a line with three new starters — had reason to be encouraged when it marched 75 yards on its second drive, capped by a 6-yard Ken Malcome touchdown run.

“I think the past week and a half, two weeks have been awesome for the offense,” said quarterback Aaron Murray, who completed 7 of 17 passes for 112 yards and hit Tavarres King for a 33-yard touchdown. “I’m very happy with how the spring ended.”

Jones said defensive coordinator Todd Grantham told the starting unit that they were playing too laid back after that drive.

The next time Murray was in, Jones pressured him on an incompletion. Nose guard John Jenkins got his right hand up to knock down a Murray pass. Sanders Commings delivered a crowd-pleasing hit on Marlon Brown and Cornelius Washington dropped Malcome for a 2-yard loss.

May his in-game suggestions work as well once the season commences.

    I hope grantham added at the end of spring practice “and if another one of you does something stupid this offseason, when i’m through with you, you’ll WISH you’d been kicked off the team”

    “When we open at Missouri, I want you guys to kill James Franklin. When Vanderbilt comes here, I’m going to kill James Franklin.”

    Even though it’s just the spring game, got to love a coach who can get his players jacked up with just a talking to. The players know it’s no fake juice from CTG.
