Kentucky counting on 'big guys' to stuff the run

By naming her son "Mister," Cassandra Cobble wanted to ensure that her son could not be dismissed. "Regardless of what people said to me, they always had to show respect," the University of Kentucky defensive tackle said of his first name. "At a young age, it was strange, at first. As I got older, I learned to understand it. And I learned to appreciate it more. Now I love it, and I love my mother for naming me that." David Turner, UK's assistant head coach and defensive line coach, prefers to call Cobble by the initials C.P. The player is also named for his grandfather, Charles Percy. Turner said he was not intentionally withholding the respect that comes with the name "Mister" until Cobble — and Kentucky's defense — earn it. But it would be understandable if Turner was withholding any honorary titles.
