Video: Cats have 'a lot of work to do' before Louisville

Head coach Joker Phillips was not particularly pleased with his team's effort at a scrimmage Saturday, exactly one week away from the season opener at Louisville.

"We learned that we've got a lot of work to do," Phillips said.

The Cats had a "mock game" where they practiced all the different situations they could face in a game. Phillips said the practice was more mental than it was physical, but it was evident after practice that a lot of the Cats just didn't have it Saturday.

"The good thing is we've got seven days," Phillips said. "The bad thing is we've got seven days."

Listen to what Phillips, senior quarterback Mike Hartline and senior defensive end DeQuin Evans had to say about practice and the week heading into the Louisville game in the videos below.

One part that did not make it into the video was the current health situation of the team. Phillips listed weakside linebacker Danny Trevathan, defensive end DeQuin Evans, defensive end Collins Ukwu and offensive tackle Chandler Burden as all being banged up and missing time at some point last week.

"The thing about this team is a lot of leaders are out," Phillips said. "We've got a lot of guys in leadership roles (out). When those guys are out, we expect them to be leading the troops from the sidelines still."
