Todd Grantham responds to "neglected stepchild" comment from former Louisville coach Greg Brown

Jason Getz-USA TODAY Sports

We're dealing with a lot of sh-t right now. So if you didn't see the comment from former Louisville cornerbacks coach Greg Brown Tuesday night, or you just couldn't muster up the strength to get mad about it, I can't blame you.

For those who missed it, here's what Brown -- who left Louisville for the same job at Missouri last month -- had to say about his former employer.

As you might have guessed, the Louisville staff saw the comment and had some objections. Todd Grantham voiced his through ESPN Tuesday afternoon.

"I've been here two years, and since I've been here, we've been sixth in total D and 18th in total D," Grantham said. "Coach Petrino gives me full autonomy to run the defense the way I see fit. I do all the game plans with our defensive staff, and if you look, we've had a lot of success, and we really got a lot of energy moving forward. We beat two SEC teams at the end of the year, and we've got some guys that chose to come back. Things are moving in the right direction, and we've got a lot of energy moving forward."

Garrick McGee had slightly less to say.

Both effective approaches, I think.
