Coming off of a 2-10 season isn’t easy, but second year head coach Mark Stoops says his UK football team is taking positive strides in the right direction during spring practice. He met with the media after Monday’s practice to discuss the progress.

One of the major questions approaching the August 30 season opener against UT Martin is who will be the man under center. Will it be one of the juniors in Maxwell Smith or Jaylen Whitlow, or will one of the true freshmen, Drew Barker or Reese Phillips, sneak in and take the starting quarterback job? Both coaches and players say it’s a competitive QB battle.
