Rich Brooks teleconference notes

All via MrSec.com. Thanks, mister.

* Paul Warford made it through practice on a very limited basis, but he’s probably still out for Saturday.

* Historically, Kentucky’s had very little success at Auburn.

* Rich Brooks doesn’t believe basketball hurts his program.  He believes it’s tough to build a program when you’re going against SEC competition.

* Brooks acknowledged that his team has won 16 straight games against non-conference foes, but he added, “We need to make a bigger impact in our own conference.”

* Charlie Strong does a great job with great talent, but you don’t put up the numbers Florida puts up without being “extremely well-coached.”

* “The cracks and creases” an offense might get against Florida (and Alabama) “close faster than they do against any other defense in America.”

* Martavious Neloms gave up some big plays last week, but had a good debut overall for a true freshman playing in the SEC.

* Twitter policy?  “I try to have as few policies as possible.”  UK’s only rule is the at you represent the school and team well.  (Can’t wait to read this kid’s piece.  Basically he got the same answer 12 times.)

* Asked how he’s doing, Brooks joked, “I’ve been better acually.”

* Kentucky will probably lean more on the run this week with Mike Hartline out, but “if you can’t throw it it’s gonna be a heckuva lot harder to run it.”

* Derrick Locke has got “great speed and explosion.”  “He’s a very tough guy, as well.  And he’s got great hands.  He could move out and be a receiver.”  Due to his size, UK has to make sure he doesn’t get too beat up.

Also, over on his blog, Tom Leach has some video of Rich Brooks speaking after today’s practice. It was about football, not tomatoes.
