Cats meet the media, open practice on Friday

LEXINGTON, Ky. (AP) - Kentucky quarterback Morgan Newton says he
had put in a "lot of work" to lead the Wildcats offense this
year.
The 6-foot-4, 235-pound junior talked about his past struggles
Friday during Kentucky's media day.
Newton was named Mike Hartline's successor heading into spring
practice. He has nine career starts, including one in the BBVA
Compass Bowl as a sophomore when Hartline was suspended. He made
his first start of the season in that game, a 27-10 loss to
Pittsburgh. Newton completed 21 of 36 for 211 yards.
He says the bowl game was "a really nice test" and that even
though "it didn't so great, it told me what I needed to work on."
Kentucky opens against Western Kentucky on Sept. 1 in Nashville,
Tenn.
