Brooks says Cats needs to play faster, tougher

LEXINGTON, Ky. (AP) - Kentucky's opening play script might be in
need of a rewrite.
The Wildcats have struggled mightily to move the ball early in
games and were held to minus-1 yard in the first quarter of a 41-7
loss to No. 1 Florida on Saturday.
Coach Rich Brooks said the Wildcats need to play at a faster
tempo and not take so much time at the line of scrimmage. The
embarrassing first quarter against the Gators isn't a recent
development. The Wildcats have been outscored 139-44 in the first
quarter dating back to the start of last season.
The going won't be any easier on Saturday when the Wildcats
(2-1, 0-1 Southeastern Conference) host No. 3 Alabama (4-0, 1-0).
The Crimson Tide have allowed 14 points in the first quarter this
year, but both came on kickoff returns.
