Two days after Kentucky's first scrimmage of the spring, the Wildcats returned to the practice field on Monday.

Mark Stoops called UK's work on Monday decent, saying the Cats took some time to get their feet under them for the morning practice.

"Started a little sluggish, had to get them going a little bit," Stoops said. "Once we picked up the tempo I thought execution got a little bit better. Defensively probably had a little bit better day today than the offense but got some good work in."

That was a departure from Saturday's scrimmage, when the offense had the upper hand with a number of big plays. In further film review over the weekend, the offense looked as good at it did live.

"I really felt like we did a very good job, for six practices in, offensively," Stoops said. "We had a few pre-snap penalties, a couple holds and like you would anticipate, a few sloppy plays here and there. But overall, the execution and the amount of plays and the versatility of our plays, I thought they were very effective. And I think that's part of the beauty about what Coach Shannon (Dawson) does offensively, keeping it simple within certain personnel matchups."

Dawson was similarly pleased with the Saturday scrimmage, and the same is true about the spring as a whole. In taking over as offensive coordinator for Neal Brown, Dawson hasn't seen as many of the growing pains as he expected.

"We still, we busted a few things today, but overall we haven't really busted signals and everything," Dawson said. "It's been good. We busted a few, mental lapse, just coming out every day and competing at the same level. I thought we had a little lull today with that, but overall, the communication has been good; it hasn't been as frustrating as I thought it would be. Pleased with that."

UK will be back on the field for its eighth practice of the spring on Wednesday morning.
