After Saturday’s scrimmage, the Kentucky football coaches had mixed opinions on how the team performed. After yesterday’s practice, Eddie Gran was decisively pleased with his offense.
During the live scrimmage, the offense started drives well, but struggled once they got inside the red zone. That was not the case when they returned to the field on Monday.
“What I did like is we came out yesterday and had a really good day in the red zone,” said Gran. “They responded and we were more efficient on first-down run and third down. We were really good.”
The scrimmages are never as good, or as bad as the coaches initially think once they get to the film. What he wants to see on film after each practice is a team that has learned from their previous practice’s mistakes.
“How are you going to respond after the things we didn’t (do)? We’ve just got to continue to get better. We’ll go on there and look today and whatever we didn’t get better at, that will be the emphasis tomorrow. If they can continue to grow that way, we’ll have a chance. I talk about consistency, and that’s what I want to see out of this group is being consistent.”
Today the team conditioned after practice. I guess that means tomorrow conditioning will be the practice’s emphasis.
