UK offense working for faster starts

It’s just those situations are just, you know — It deflates you. It hurts our whole team.”At South Carolina Kentucky quarterback Patrick Towles threw an interception on Kentucky’s third offensive play of the game, two plays after a drop by wide receiver Dorian Baker on a potential long gain. A week later against Florida Towles threw another interception on the offense’s opening drive – this time two plays after Baker dropped a possible touchdown pass in the end zone.The Wildcats made it through the first drive against Missouri without any drops or turnovers, but against Eastern Kentucky the problem returned when Badet fumbled on a 9-yard gain while trying to stretch for a first down.UK backup receivers looking for more snaps“It’s not like the kid was trying to fumble,” Dawson said. “The kid was trying to get extra yards. He was playing hard. There’s times where the ball just gets hit perfectly and gets knocked out. Obviously we’re going to teach ball security and we do. We teach and preach and coach ball security. It sucks when it happens at that time.”Badet’s reception marked the third consecutive 9-yard gain for a Kentucky offense that appeared to find an early groove before the fumble. After that turnover much of the offensive success disappeared with the Wildcats punting on each of the next two offensive drives.Asked if he felt snake bit after the third opening-drive turnover in five games, Dawson said he didn’t think much of anything after the play.“I’m just like, ‘Well, that’s interesting,’“ Dawson said with a laugh.He did admit the early mistake affected his play-calling on subsequent drives and could have contributed to Towles’ early struggles against EKU.“The first drive we’re being patient, we’re getting 10-yard chunks and we fumble, and the second drive I say, ‘All right we’re going to get big and be big boys out here.’“ Dawson said. “Then we get like a yard. So then I just start throwing it down the field. It probably has to do with my patience”Email Jon Hale at [email protected] . Follow him on Twitter @JonHale_CJ .last_img read more

Life sentence for couple who met, married in same courtroom they met in on jury duty

first_img Related iStock/Thinkstock(NEW ORLEANS) — For Kris and Sarah Gerig, their trial has ended in a life sentence of love.The New Orleans couple, who met on jury duty in a theft trial in August 2015, were married March 14 in the same courtroom where they met. Their ceremony was presided over by the same judge who heard the trial they served on the jury for.Kris Gerig felt it was meant to be. “First there were 200 potential jurors, ” he told “Good Morning America.” “Then it was down to 30. Then just six people on the jury, with one alternate. Sarah was the alternate.”“Each step of the way almost missed out on getting to know each other,” he said.Sarah Gerig recalled that Kris was, “well-dressed and cute and was pretty funny. He was the only one with a notebook and pencil.”The two-day trial ended before they got to say goodbye, Sarah Gerig said. But the jury had to return to the courtroom the next week to potentially be selected for another trial.That’s when Kris took his opportunity. He asked Sarah out, and they had lunch that day near the courthouse.The couple were engaged a year later, and Sarah Gerig said the idea to get married in the courtroom where they met was something they had joked about.“I had written a note to Judge Robin Pittman in the meantime letting her know we had met on the trial and were now together and very happy. She [Pittman] wrote back she was so happy for us.”So it was not surprising that the judge, who Sarah described as “no nonsense” during the trial, granted the couple’s request to get married in her courtroom. She also invited them to invite whoever they wanted.“That was so nice,” Kris Gerig said. “We had thought it would be like a four-person wedding, but all of our family got to be there.”The courtroom, which Sarah Gerig had recalled feeling “bigger and scarier” during the trial, was “warm and welcoming” the day of the wedding. “The judge really excited her whole staff, they were so excited taking so many pictures.”And now, according to the couple, Judge Pittman has a heartwarming story to tell her possible jurors: “Don’t dread jury duty, you may meet the love of your life.”Copyright © 2018, ABC Radio.
