Here’s Western Kentucky coach Bobby Petrino talking to media after his team’s scrimmage in preparation for the August 31 opener against Kentucky in Nashville.
The head coach was happy with his first-team defense, which is an experienced group. Petrino said his offense moved the ball but didn’t finish with touchdowns. He appeared happy with the way the Hilltoppers ran the football, but though the timing was off in the passing game.
Petrino said he likes Anthony Wales, a redshirt freshman out of Louisville Central, and his ability make big plays. Wales had originally committed to Louisville before changing his mind and signing with the Hilltoppers in 2012.
Petrino hasn’t named a starting quarterback yet as Brandon Doughty and Demarcus Smith continue to battle. Most believe Doughty will end up being the starter as the junior has been working with the first team during scrimmages.
Chad Bishop of the Bowling Green Daily News has more details on the scrimmage.
