Kennedy from SEC teleconference

Highlights from Andy Kennedy’s time on the SEC teleconference …

(On Arkansas’ big loss at Alabama) We all live on the slippery slope, and we played about as poorly as I’ve seen from my vantage point at Arkansas, and the script got flipped. I was not surprised that Alabama won, because they’re a good basketball team and it’s hard to win on the road, but when I saw the score I was surprised because of how well Arkansas had been playing. …

(On Georgia’s run through SEC regular season) Mark and his staff did an outstanding job of getting his team to understand who they were. They were 6-6 in the non-league with not many people giving them much hope for moving up in the standings. They looked in the mirror and made the necessary adjustments as to who they were and their best chacnes for success. They maximized that by having an outstanding run in our league. I’m sure they’re playing with momentum and a lot of confidence. They’ll be in their home state, and I’m sure there will be a lot of Bulldogs in the building. Last year we were in a similar mode, and I think Georgia is in a great position. …

(On the tournament at the Georgia Dome) Atlanta does a great job of hosting the tournament in the Dome, creating an intimate environment that our fans and players can enjoy. The decision to move to Nashville was a business decision I’m sure, and I have the utmost respect for the people who make thos decisions.
