Nathan TowlesCorrespondent ISeptember 25, 2008

Coach Brooks has spoken and when that happens, watch out.

Just days before the University of Kentucky is due for the clash of the bluegrass, Kentucky has a new field goal kicker.

After going 2-6 on field goals attempts against Middle Tennessee State less then 2 weeks ago, Lones Seiber has been "booted" out of his job.

Redshirt freshman Ryan Tydlacka has beat out Junior Lones Seiber in the past week and a half in open competition.

"It was relatively close," Brooks said. "Over the six-day period where we charted kicks (Tydlacka) was probably one or two better in accuracy, coupled with the fact that Lones' last outing was not up to standard."

However Seiber has keep one of his jobs. Seiber will keep his extra point attempts. He has been 100% on extra tries, going 10-10.

Injury Update

Junior middle linebacker, Micah Johnson has been reported to be out for the game on Saturday against Western Kentucky.

Johnson has the most tackles on defense with 17, 15 solo and 2.5 for loss of yards.

Ricky Lumpkin is also listed as out for the game. Lumpkin as 6 tackles this year with two for a loss.

True freshman Randall Cobb is still listed as indefinitely out with a high ankle sprain and is most likely going to miss 4-6 weeks, if not more.

Coach Brooks has also announced that safety Matt Lentz will be starting Saturday instead of normal safety Ashton Cobb.

Brooks said the move has become because of Cobb's poor performance last game.
