    Next head coach Drew? Proofread a little maybe.

    1. Realme

      We’ve seen worse. 🙂

    2. Duff86

      Realme, you really needed that clarified? Turn your f’n brain on and get past a little typo.

    3. bwise

      You ksr dickriders are comical….drew didn’t ask you to be a body guard buddy.

    4. Realme

      Yeah Duff I was SO confused. Thought he really meant to type head coach.

  2. Ranch

    Think you mean as OC not Head Coach

  3. loservilletard

    I say BS, Not only is Gran not being considered for the head job at Georgia, Georgia already has a head coach, and he is smart enough t o get a much better OC than Gran.

      It’s pretty obvious by your name, that ANYTHING you think is wrong.

    Yea it took the LA rams a long time to get better after getting rid of Jeff Fischer…you’re right…let’s keep riding the gran wave that has never produced a good offense and for sure didn’t show improvement last year. He’s had the greatest rb of all of uks history and couldn’t average over 17 pts a game in sec play last year. You’re right Drew. You’re right…………………get outta here Eddie you bum.

    1. MrPioneer

      We better listen to bwise, you guys. His 4 years of JV high school football really give him the expertise much of us wish we had. Get back to wiping the Dorito dust off your keyboard.

    2. bwise

      Doritos? Ha good one little girl

    3. MrPioneer

      Didn’t deny the JV part. Thanks for confirming!

    4. bwise

      Yawn….you trying to date one of the guys from ksr? And if you disagree why don’t you state why you disagree? 17 pts a game buddy. 17.

      The 2nd place rusher in UK history, Sonny Collins, held the rushing record for over 40 years.
      The combined record during his four years was 16-27; two of those years we averaged 12 pts/game.
      Gran did somewhat better than that.

    6. ClutchCargo

      rg, you are now the proud owner of bwise. lol

    7. Skooms

      Thanks for playing BWise. Would you like a participation trophy?

    8. bwise

      What a terrible attempt at an insult lol

  5. UKfansNKY

    Please STAY Coach Gran despite what all the DA say!!!

  6. Duuuuuude

    It would say a lot about the program if Gran rejects GA. Means Stoops is staying longer. Could be used in recruiting…..that the coaches so believe in their trajectory that they don’t want to leave so the kids should come here also. If Gran stays, it is a great sign!

    1. ClutchCargo

      Agree. Him leaving wouldn’t have exactly the opposite effect, but it wouldn’t be good.

  7. Logic_Prevails

    $1.1m is not a huge raise over the $850k~ he is paid now. It should be easy to match. If he does take the job then UK should go hard to get Coley from UGA to replace him here. Coley is a better recruiter and can coach RBs. Hinshaw takes over as full-time OC for continuity.

    1. Realme

      I thought he and Hinshaw were a package deal. That’s how it was when they cam ehere.

  8. Bigblue7982

    Now that our defense won’t be as good next year time for gran to show up and do good next year.

  9. lecantrell

    Sounds like he will be getting a major raise in the near future to stay at UK

  10. cats646

    Idk. I’ve been so pissed at Eddie for so long that it’s hard for me to say this, if it is stoops holding him back, then Stoops needs to step the fuk back and let Gran do his thing. But is its not Stoops then good riddance Gran. For our teams sake though I hope that I’ve been wrong this whole time and Gran is a great OC and stoops lets him run it his way next year. We shall see.

  11. J. Did

    As much as I’d prefer he stay, that’s me being selfish.

    This is a golden opportunity for Eddie Gran.

    Carpe potestatem!

  12. Gus Chiggins

    I’ve heard Athens is wonderful this time of year

    2. runningunnin.454

      Pitino seems to be enjoying it.

  13. BigBogee

    Stoops is holding him back most of the time. Look at his offense from when he was at UC. Two total different looks, bit the same guy. That tells me whose to blame.

  14. J. Did

    If I were Eddie Gran – and I’m sure he or his agent have done this – I’d call former UGA OC Jim Chaney and ask him about his 3 years working for Kirby Smart. On it’s face, it appears Chaney left for more money. His game plan in Lex tore us a new one. So, I’d want to know what was the ‘work place’ environment is like? If Chaney was seeking an increase in pay, Kirby didn’t think he was worth it. Eddie Gran has to weigh and balance.

  15. KYCat4EVER

    I think MARVIN LEWIS tried the same Reverse Psychology and it worked: Mike Brown kept him 15-16 seasons without a playoff win! LOL

    Somebody buy Gran a bus ticket before Georgia gets smart, and we lose our ONLY potential advantage over the head to head match up against Georgia next year!

    1. Skooms

      I won’t buy Gran a ticket, but I’ll dip into savings to buy you a first class plane ticket to ANYWHERE not in KY.

  16. bigbluebanana

    Am I misreading the link to the article? Doesn’t it say that MJ is still the source???

    Also, doesn’t it say that their sources have talked to Georgia staff and while they can confirm Gran has been talked to, that the word “offer” is strong???

  17. UKCatAttack

    Drew the article you linked literally cites Matt Jones as their source and says per their sources Gran has been contacted but “offer is a bit overstated.” May want to update this story.

  18. Wade

    If he stays when most of us want him gone and he burns ga , all I can say is wow! We have arrived but My bet it’s hinshaw that keep him here unless ga offers him a spot which hinshaw may be a good get since I don’t think ga has a dual threat qb like us and that’s what he thrives on. Either way we are setup good for next yr!

  19. big cat

    He’s STAYING Drew. Now, go pick Matt’s nose whistle and come back with a real article next time.

    I really thought Wilson would improve at the end of the year but lets me honest the play calling was awful. They would run run run. Then expect Wilson to make a great pass on 3rd and 12 while running for his life. And then everyone says Wilson sucks. Gran plays to conservative. Thats what drives me nuts. Defense and a good rb what made Gran look good.
