Kentucky head coach Rich Brooks says he was pleased with his team's first practice on Wednesday. The weather was beautiful and the guy's face is on a bourbon bottle. The round ball team has a new coach too. Can life get any better?

As far as the practice, the Wildcats were in shorts and helmets. Brooks said he really won't know much about his team until they put on the pads, but he was pleased with the team's effort and noted that the team's conditioning program looks to have been successful. He also noted that the team had come a long way since he took over the head coaching duties in 2003.

One last note from yesterday is that Brooks announced that cornerback Paul Warford will miss spring practices due to a broken foot, but he is expected to be able to participate in the summer's practices.
