Our skills (positions) were a lot better throwing and catching today and we just hope it shows up on the game field on Saturday."
After a poor performance to open the season Phillips was very happy with the performance of Kentucky's wide receivers and Morgan Newton in today's practice session.
"It was definitely a lot better today and a lot of that has to do with understanding what we are seeing on defense after studying Central Michigan for three days," Phillips said about the play of UK's offense. "But we shouldn't have any problems throwing and catching the ball, regardless of who we are playing, but we were a lot better today.
"Morgan had a really good day today. He threw the ball to the right people and the guys caught the ball. That goes a long way with his confidence and his confidence in other guys when they make plays. We protected better also today. When you protect better I think that helps his confidence and when he does throw and we make catches that helps his confidence too."
