Kentucky Football Notebook

Aug. 17, 2001

Two-a-Days Continue: The Kentucky football team had its fifth consecutive day of two-a-day practices Friday at the Nutter Training Center. The Wildcats also will have a double session on Saturday, including a scrimmage during the morning practice.Coach Guy Morriss said that the scrimmage will feature 40 plays, with the primary goal being an opportunity for the defense to have some live tackling."We've had a lot of collisions in practice and the guys have done a good job of working on their technique hitting hard, wrapping up," Morriss said. "But, we also need some live tackling. It's something we have to do to help the defense. I'll hold my breath for 40 plays, hoping that no one gets hurt."
