Anyone hoping Joker Phillips and his staff had made a decision on a starting quarterback after reviewing tape of Saturday's scrimmage is going to have to wait a bit longer. Following Tuesday's practice, Phillips said more competition between Max Smith, Morgan Newton, Patrick Towles and Jalen Whitlow is needed to make any such determination.

However, Phillips did have some thoughts on what he noticed on second viewing of Kentucky's first scrimmage of fall camp. One thing stuck out above all else.

"The thing I did like was how many big plays we had on both sides of the ball on offense and defense," Phillips said. "There were some big plays made by the receivers, the tight ends, the running backs hit a couple big screens. And then on defense there were some takeaways, some takeaways for touchdowns, which we haven't had in a long time."

Phillips also confirmed that sophomore safety Glenn Faulkner's injury sustained in the scrimmage is a high ankle sprain. He is undergoing an MRI on Monday to determine the severity.

Many other topics were addressed in Phillips' time with the media - which you can watch below, in addition to an interview with offensive coordinator Randy Sanders - but one quote about the team chemistry of this season's Wildcats is worth pointing out.

"We got a great locker room," Phillips said. "I love this locker room. We got guys that are doing things the right way, especially the guys at the top are leading guys, teaching them how to do things."

Make sure to watch the video of Sanders. Included in it is a great soundbite about headache-inducing running backs Justin Taylor and Dyshawn Mobley.
