After the Cats opened their doors to the public for a two-hour practice in helmets and shorts, Mark Stoops told the media he likes what he saw from his team.
There were some sloppy moments, primarily in the passing game. Without shoulder pads in play (that will happen tomorrow), defensive linemen had an easier path to the quarterback. The pocket collapsed too quick too often. More on the QBs play later.
Stoops was pleased to see Ahmad Wagner seamlessly step in after taking a break from football. He praised the play from the defensive line, especially freshman Marquan McCall, and explained why Lynn Bowden was not returning punts today (and why Edwards and Bouvier are the early leaders to replace Charles Walker).
