Wildcats Trying to Iron Out Miscues

LEXINGTON, Ky. (AP) -- Kentucky's record might be perfect through two games, but that doesn't mean coach Rich Brooks agrees.

Brooks said Tuesday his team has made way too many mistakes, particularly in the passing game.

"We're trying to get better at what we do," Brooks said. "We made way too many mistakes in the first two games and we're trying to eliminate those."

Freshman quarterback Randall Cobb said that he had his share of slip-ups during the 38-3 drubbing of Norfolk State, a strong offensive performance that he helped spark.

"I think I played horrible," Cobb said. "Overall it's not good enough."

Brooks said that Cobb was doing a good job acknowledging his mistakes, especially for a true freshman.

"I think Randall has a pretty good grasp on reality and he knows he didn't do the things that he was supposed to do in the game quite a few times," Brooks said. "The good thing is that he didn't get caught up in the hype and he knows what he needs to do to get better."

Even a flawless performance by Cobb against Middle Tennessee on Saturday won't allow him to seize the starting job on a permanent basis. Brooks said he has no intention of doing away with alternating between Cobb and Mike Hartline anytime soon.

"They compete and help each other and that's the way it has to be," Brooks said. "As I said, we need them both and we're only one injury away from only having one, and who knows which one it would be."
