LEXINGTON, Ky. (WKYT) - If Kentucky's "Air Raid" offense is to cliick, the Cats must make routine plays. That's what Mark Stoops came away saying after his team lost to Louisville 27-13. In practice this week he said he's still seeing dropped balls.
"I saw a few, saw a few, yeah seeing a few more than we have been seeing," said Stoops following Wednesday's practice. "We need to get it corrected but yeah, I saw a few drops in there today."
Stoops has his receivers and backs catch tennis balls to improve hand and eye coordination and cut down on drops. "We catch probably 60 balls a day before and after practice," said freshman receiver Ryan Timmons. "A lot of guys are doing more. We have to catch the ball and move the chains, so we have a lot of guys doing extra work."
The Cats have an open date Saturday and will not return to the field until they host Florida at Commonwealth Stadium September 28. Florida plays Tennessee in Gainesville Saturday. That game can be seen on WKYT beginning at 3:30 p.m.
