Larry Vaught goes one-on-one with Kentucky wide receivers coach Pat Washington.
Question: How was spring practice for you and your players?
Washington: "It was a good experience. Number one, we are not very experienced so therefore every day in practice we had to treat it like a game. That's the only way to get game ready, and then once we get in a game it will still be different. What I?have to do is just make sure I give them as much knowledge as I possibly can, yet not overload them. There are some things they have to learn on the field as it is happening. I have to make sure they understand that. I can tell them about 100 things that are going to happen in a game, but in a game there will be another 100 things that I didn't talk about.
"As I always tell them as I am drawing lines on the board, these lines are not moving. I am drawing a nice straight pretty line and in the game that line is probably going to be little crooked. ?You have to adjust and that comes along with experience. As long as you know what we are trying to do and why we are trying to do it and how we are trying to do it, then you can make the adjustments along the way."
