LEXINGTON, Ky. (WYMT) Kentucky is 2-0, but that doesn't mean that there aren't problem areas. The offensive line hasn't performed up to head coach Mark Stoops standards, and that's a main focus for this week of practice.
Stoops said, "The sky is not falling, but we have to get those things cleaned up. The snaps, we will continue to work on that. We'll get those corrected. Nick (Haynes) and Bunchy (Stallings) are very conscientious young men. They work extremely hard, they take pride in their craft. I know they'll work on that and get that fixed. We've got to get the penalties fixed, and we've got to be just a little more disciplined in certain areas. You don't need to go in there and get a penalty on a screen pass and get a holding play, a holding penalty on the first one. And then protection issues. Give him some options on third down. There's not many quarterbacks that are very effective on third and long when you're not getting great, great protection."
