UK receivers still trying to catch on


Kentucky coach Rich Brooks sees plenty of room for improvement as the Wildcats enter the third week of spring drills.

Brooks said this week he saw some really good things during last weekend’s scrimmage. The first-team defense dominated the offense at times as quarterback Mike Hartline struggled.

All of the blame, however, doesn’t fall on Hartline. Brooks says the receivers have regressed over the last week. He wants them to get back to catching the ball and making plays instead of dropping the ball so much.

Brooks will be looking for signs of progress this week before the second scrimmage of the spring on Saturday.

Brooks was in Cincinnati Tuesday to promote the 2009 season-opener against Miami (Ohio). The game will be played at Paul Brown Stadium, home of the NFL’s Cincinnati Bengals.

Kentucky’s annual Blue- White Spring Game is set for April 25 at Commonwealth Stadium.
