With rain in the forecast, the Kentucky football team moved its second practice of fall camp to the Nutter Training Center. The weather ended up staying dry and head coach Joker Phillips reported improvement from a sloppy opening practice on Fan Day.

"A lot sharper today, but not anywhere near to line up and play, but it shouldn't be," Phillips said. "We got time."

With just under a month still to go before UK's season opener against Louisville on Sept. 2, fall camp and two more weeks of practice after school starts will give the Wildcats a chance to make plenty more progress.

The group likely with the toughest task in practice is the freshmen. UK's newcomers are trying to adjust to the speed of the college game and learn a new system and Phillips said each progresses at his own pace.

"There is usually a point in camp where you see a light come on," Phillips said. "Today's not the day. Heads are still swimming. The tempo of how we're trying to practice gets to them."

Phillips talked more about that topic after practice and also touched on the running back and quarterback position and senior wide receiver La'Rod King. Watch his time with the media on Sunday in the video below.
