UK offense responds in practice

LEXINGTON, Ky. It was the second day of practice for the Kentucky Wildcats and a better day for the offense.

Coach Mark Stoops wasn't happy with dropped passes Monday, but offensive coordinator Neal Brown said things tightened up Tuesday.

"We had a good second day of practice, said Brown. "Really good energy for the early morning hour because of the class conflicts. I thought we were a little nervous day one, especially the new guys and the freshmen, but we caught it really well today. I don't see that being an issue at all like it was last year. During the team period today, we had maybe one drop. I don't anticipate it being a problem at all going forward."

Brown sees better things for his offense in 2014 thanks to some good young talent.

"Really, really excited about some of the young freshmen wide outs, they're catching on quicker. The new rules during the summer obviously helped us. The freshmen running backs had good days today. The redshirt o-linemen, those guys have been really impressive, made a big jump since last spring."

Brown believes the first two days of practice were productive, but things get more serious now as Kentucky puts on the pads.
