The physically imposing freshman wideout has already gotten an earful from his position coach, though.MEDIA DAYS: Wildcats picked to win SEC; Harrison POYFOOTBALL: Mark Stoops previews Miss. State“This is not a selfish game. We’re going to do things to help the team,” Mainord said. “If it penalizes him, it penalizes this football team. It penalizes all of us, and it penalizes the University of Kentucky. And that’s not what we want. Didn’t get penalized there, but we gotta do it right. We’re not out to hurt people. We’re out to block.”For his part, Beckwith told reporters in Baton Rouge that Baker simply knocked the wind out of him and that even while he was still down in a heap on the turf, he was smiling.“I knew he had got me pretty good and everybody had seen it,” Beckwith said, “so I just had to laugh.”[youtube* For instant updates on the Wildcats, follow me on Twitter @KyleTucker_CJ. Email me at [email protected] Both LSU coach Les Miles and Kentucky coach Mark Stoops have acknowledged that the SEC is reviewing a block by Wildcats wide receiver Dorian Baker that leveled Tigers linebacker Kendall Beckwith, who never saw the hit coming as he pursued QB Patrick Towles.Neither coach has said whether they’ve heard back from the league about possible punishment for the play, which was not penalized during the game, but UK receivers coach Tommy Mainord was not pleased with Baker’s technique. He didn’t appear to hit Beckwith with his helmet but he did leave his feet to deliver the blow.“We’ve coached him to do different,” Mainord said. “We don’t coach him to go launch and lead with your head. That’s what the SEC described it as, and that’s not what we want. We’re not trying to hurt people. We’re trying to set blocks, and we’re trying to do it the legal way. That’s what we’re coaching, and so we’re going to keep working on that as well with Dorian and keep getting better at it.”Play VideoPlayMuteCurrent Time 0:00/Duration Time 0:00Loaded: 0%0:00Progress: 0%0:00 Progress: 0%Stream TypeLIVERemaining Time -0:00 Playback Rate1ChaptersChaptersdescriptions off, selectedDescriptionssubtitles off, selectedSubtitlescaptions settings, opens captions settings dialogcaptions off, selectedCaptionsAudio TrackFullscreenThis is a modal window.
