Though the program opens with a

The show highlights many facets

Big plays, bad injuries
mark Cats’ scrimmage

Staff Writer

Although UK’s first full scrim-
mage Saturday morning at Com-
monwealth Stadium had the big
plays UK coach Jerry Claiborne was
looking for, the Wildcat mentor still
expressed mixed feelings on the
Cats‘ performance.

“We had a few big plays, but not
enough consistency to really be an
effective offensive team," Claiborne

“Still, that's what we‘re looking
for — the big play. That was the big
thing about this practice. We got
some big plays. We've just got to
iron out the rough spots and get bet—
ter," he said.

Two of the big plays came care of
Ivy Joe Hunter and Dee Smith.

Hunter ripped off a 75-yard jaunt
on the first play of the scrimmage.
and Smith added a 63-yard punt re-

While Hunter will get his share of
action in the UK backfield. Wildcat
coaches are trying to utilize the
speedy Smith more in the offense.
He is already slated to start at wide
receiver and return punts this fall.

"I thought Dee Smith was pretty
outstanding today,“ Claiborne said.
“I thought he did some real fine
things. He runs the ball well. We‘ve

got to get the ball to him in the pass-
ing game more."

True, Smith’s stats looked more
like a running back than a receiver.
He was the third-leading rusher in
the scrimmage. finishing with 55
yank on seven carries. He also
caught a 17-yard pass.

If you figure in the punt return,
Smith averaged a cool 15-yards
every time he touched the ball Sat-
urday. But that‘s nothing new for
the sophomore from Paducah. Last
year, he quietly averaged 15.7 yards
a play in limited duty.

Smith says he's happy with his
new role in the UK offense.

“I like to look at myself at both
pass receiving and rushing the ball
— more like a running back situa-
tion," he said. “I just like to be
wherever the ball is."

Claiborne was pleased with his
running game. Hunter topped the
century mark in rushing in the
scrimmage with 117 yards on 12 car-
ries. Senior Mark Higgs also carried
12 times for 57 yards.

The scrimmage proved that the
passing game remains a suspect
area for the Cats. Fifth-year senior
Kevin Dooley and junior college
transfer Glenn Fohr both had medio~
cre performances.

Dooley completed 7 of 11 passes.
but netted only 55 yards. Fohr con-

nothing but help you."

Hudson was not supposed to be on
the team, but a shortage of players
at the last minute gave him his

“Some of the players on the team,
the Peninsula Oilers. signed with
other teams. so they were pretty
short on pitching," Hudson said.
“The coach just asked the players if
any of the pitchers on their college
teams could come up and throw. "

Sutton, who was already on the
squad, recommended Hudson. After
conferring with UK coach Keith
Madison and area scouts. the Oiler

“We didn‘t throw the ball as well
as we've got to throw it in order to
maintain possession of the football."
Claiborne said. “Sometimes we had
people open and didn't get the ball
to them. So consequently. we didn't
get the big plays with our passing

The few passes that were com-
pleted were mostly short tosses to
the running backs. Sophomore Dar-
ren Bilberry caught four aerials for
23 yards and redshirt freshman Al
Baker pulled down three for 19

Freshman Phil Logan led an inac-

coach immediately sent the left-
hander plane tickets for Alaska.

Hudson, who was 4-1 with a 4.35
ERA at UK, compiled a 52 record
during his stint with the Oilers and
the Mat-Su Miners. In 25 innings. he
allowed 18 hits. established a 3.22
ERA. posted 28 strikeouts and
hurled eight saves.

The Miners eventually won the
World Series, with Hudson pitching
the final innings of the last game.
The pressure of facing — and de-
feating —— some of the top prospects
in the country gave him a valuable

"I think it helped my confidence
and playing in pressure situations
by just knowing that I have played

‘Easy’ sticks close
to genre standards

Arts Editor

“The Big Easy" is a good modern
detective story in that. like all good
modern detective stories. it con-
cerns itself with the gray areas

It is not an unpredictable story. It
is not a story of extraordinary
depth. It is not a story whose char-
acters are extremely complex.
Rather. it succeeds in that it deliv-
ers exactly what it promises ~ two
hours of escapist drama with seldom
a dull scene. especially when it
comes to the bedroom.

With that in mind. “The Big
Easy" is no exception. It sticks reli-
giously to all of the rules of detec«
tive story filmmaking.

"The Big Easy" is in New ()r-
leans. the city were every cop is on
the take. be it on a grand scale or
simply in the form of free dinners at
nice restaurants Remy McSwain

Dennis Quaid» is no exception.
Coming from a long line of cops who
have all enjoyed the perks of the
profession. McSwain is of the im-
pression that it‘s just part of the job.

Wherein lies the gray area.

The carry—out cajun food is about
as hot as things get around the pre-
cinct until Assistant DA Anne Os-
borne lEllen Barkini arrives upon
the scene She is in business to pros-
ecute dirty cops who are taking
money under the table. McSwain
struts and swaggers. spewing catchy
pick-up lines all the while as Os-
borne clings to her by-the-book ethi»
cal facade.

Anyway. McSwain finally talks
her into dinner. After a sticky res-

taurant scene where Remy gets out
check-free, he explains to the
peeved Osborne that it‘s "the way
you play the game.“

A provocative, well-blocked sex
scene follows (McSwain is not a
strong believer in the missionary po-
sition), But things between the two
lovers is not all and well. McSwain
is framed for bribery and Osborne is
the prosecuting attorney. You can
see the conflict of interest.

After dodging the rap in a rather
shady fashion. McSwain goes back
to investigating a drug war that is
thought to be taking place between
the mafia and and a voodoo cult.
Meanwhile. Osborne fumes at being
unjustly made a pawn in the law en-
forcement game.

As the drug war gets increasingly
intense. the swaggering McSwain
slowly finds out that things may not
be so cut-and-dry. The drug problem
may be an internal affair
