LEXINGTON, Ky. (AP) - Kentucky coach Joker Phillips gave his
players a much-deserved afternoon off on Tuesday following a
spirited morning practice.
The Wildcats have practiced 12 straight days, and Phillips said
the reprieve should give his team a chance to heal up as they
continue to prepare for the season-opener at Louisville on
Phillips stressed again he's in no hurry to name a starting
quarterback. Mike Hartline, Morgan Newton and Ryan Mossakowski are
all splitting snaps with the first team. Phillips hopes to have a
better idea on Saturday following Kentucky's second scrimmage.
The Wildcats planned to spend the afternoon in the pool goofing
off, a tradition started by former coach Rich Brooks as a reward
for hard work.
