Lamar Thomas mic'd up during Kentucky Football practice

See why Lamar Thomas is exactly what UK's receivers needed.

Ever since Mark Stoops arrived in Lexington, he's made it a point for his team to practice as fast, up-tempo and intense as possible.

Stoops even has the ball boys sprinting from drill to drill to male sure his players can get the maximum number of reps possible. So what better way to add to the intensity and fire he demands in practice than to have Lamar Thomas coaching the receivers?

Well, after Kentucky Wildcats TV got Coach Thomas mic'd up, you can see and feel the energy he brings to the receiving group.

Thomas is as vocal of a coach as you'll find as he demands greatness from his players, so hopefully this translates into a big year for UK's pass-catchers after they struggled mightily in 2015.

You can also see why he was probably ready to get out of Louisville and from under the watch of Bobby Petrino, who runs his practices far more strictly, where an upbeat and energetic guy like Thomas may not mesh well.
