LEXINGTON, Ky. (WKYT) - Kentucky fans will be looking for an improved "Air Raid" offense when the Cats take the field in 2014. Spring practice concludes with the annual Blue-White Game Saturday at Commonwealth Stadium.
In Mark Stoops' first season the UK offense averaged about 20 points and 341 yards per game. Senior tight end Steve Borden believes the passing game will be improve. "We're just more disciplined as a receiving corps, myself as a tight end. There's more chemistry I think with the quarterbacks and I think, I know for a fact we're going to see a more successful passing game."
Offensive tackle Jason Swindle says the offense has a different feel. "I would say we're a lot more cohesive than we use to be. We use to be kind of a rag tag where we don't know exactly what's going to happen when the ball's thrown or if he can get the ball off because we're missing blocks and stuff like that."
For offensive coordinator Neal Brown it's taking patience. "We're improved. Are we where I hope we're gonna be, no. We'll be much better going into '15. But we are much improved. Our tempo will be better tomorrow, that'll be for all to see and then fundamentally we're better."
The Blue-White game will be televised on The CW Lexington. Kickoff will be at 3:30 p.m. with pregame coverage beginning at 3:00 p.m.
