LEXINGTON, Ky. (WDRB) - University of Kentucky head coach Mark Stoops was in a better mood after Saturday's scrimmage than he was after Friday's practice.
Friday, he said his team had wasted the day. Saturday was a little more positive.
"We did some good things. It's a little bit new for me being the head coach because one side or the other has to do good and one side has to do bad," Stoops said after the scrimmage.
The offense came out quickly with the first and second string teams putting together scoring drives but then the defense asserted itself later in the scrimmage, coming up with four interceptions on the day.
"I covered pretty well today," said UK junior linebacker Kory Brown. "I had one interception. I should have had three."
Maybe that was one of the reasons there is still no clear cut favorite on the starting quarterback.
"There's kind of an ebb and flow to it," said Kentucky offensive coordinator and quarterback coach Neal Brown when asked how the decision making process was coming along with the quarterback candidates. "We're getting closer to a decision. This (scrimmage) is one of the things that will go into the equation."
Neither Brown nor Stoops was happy with the tempo of the practice. They wanted more energy, especially as the Wildcats are less than two weeks away from the kickoff against Western Kentucky.
