Since Kentucky’s 14-7 win over Vanderbilt, a portion of the Kentucky football fanbase has used social media to cry for Gunnar Hoak to replace Terry Wilson as the Cats’ starting quarterback. Gunnar Hoak’s father has joined the mix.
After a person created a petition for Hoak to replace Wilson, Frank Hoak chimed in.
I’m sure none of the coaches, or his son, would love to see that Tweet, but it was innocent enough. However, some of his other social media activity was a little more egregious.
When others pointed out that Frank Hoak’s words were not doing his son any favors, he had a few choice replies.
“What, are they not going to play him?” Another took a not-so subtle shot at the UK coaches. “Why not have some fun with it? It’s better than sitting back and watching you child’s career fade away.”
Before Frank Hoak spoke out on Twitter, during the game he liked a few Tweets that had a heavy transfer flavor.
Mr. Hoak isn’t the first father of a player to voice his grievances on social media. Just like every previous incident, his words will accomplish nothing. All good parents will do whatever they can to help their child, but this helps no one.
