LEXINGTON, Ky. (WKYT) Kentucky put together a good practice Wednesday morning, Tuesday afternoon was not so good. UK coaches are constantly motivating as they prepare for a long season.
"Speeches are good and we do that ever day." said UK defensive coordinator D.J. Eliot. "We give them something motivational every day at practice."
Eliot said goals are set daily for practice and players are graded. "An assessment at the end of the practice, whether they met it or not. And on defense, we make sure that we show the entire defense those that are reaching their goals and those that aren't, so everybody knows what the expectation is. Sometimes it's just pulling teeth getting them to practice, but today wasn't one of those."
