08:15 AM ET 12.27 | Coming off this past Saturday's win over Marshall, John Calipari ticked off a rather long list of areas that needed improvement, but he opened with his desire for Alex Poythress to play harder more often. Poythress, the 6-foot-7 freshman forward with immense skill and elite athletic ability, has looked nearly unstoppable at times this season for UK (8-3), which will visit rival Louisville (11-1) at 4 p.m. Saturday. But Poythress also has been passive for stretches of games, and whether he becomes the consistent force Calipari wants could largely determine how far the Wildcats go this season. "I see where he's coming from," Poythress said. "Sometimes I do have mental lapses. I've just got to decrease those mental lapses and I should be fine."

Yes he was, glad he is at Florida to coach now.

Hopefully he can bring in/coach up WRs with ball skills. UF has had plenty of track guys that could not catch in a crowd.

Senility will do that to older people. What is this guy's excuse?

Stop recruiting track guys thinking they will be the next Percy.... :)..Joker was a good get though

I don't think Muschamp and crew are targeting the wrong guys anymore... See the success of Agholor and Diggs elsewhere. They just need to finish on WR recruits.

Yep, good play, but not exactly what the rule was intended for when it was drawn up.
