After Kentucky’s scrimmage Saturday coach Mark Stoops said he needed to study the film to have a more accurate gauge on how things went.

Monday he said he saw “some good things” on film.

“Felt like we really took care of the football. Quarterbacks made good decisions. We were efficient. Defensively, we only gave up one explosive play, and that was off a play that looked like it was going to be an interception and Juice (Garrett Johnson) ended up making a very difficult catch and made a big play out of it,” Stoops said. “So it was good that we kept the explosives down on defense.

“Need to add more; as we get going defensively, we need to add more in our package for situations, whether it be two-minute or third down. We’re starting to get first and second down anchored down on what we want to do. We’ve got to fundamentally continue to get better. But I thought we did a good job.

“I thought offensively, we were smart with the ball. If we got in second and long we got five, six yards back. Was very efficient on third down. There was some good on both sides of the ball.”

Stoops also said that running back Mikel Horton, who injured his ankle Saturday, was back at practice today.
