    Stoops failed his FSU audition miserably. Eddie Gran is Stoop’s Achilles heel.


      Agree, If FSU would take him after this showing they’re desperate. What are we saying to any QB recruit that sees three Quarterbacks on the bench and WR playing QB. Stoops has never gotten SEC quality QBs at UK. We make do with what we can recruit but all in all it’s not good enough. Terry may be our best be he’s not the caliber you need in the SEC. We play Smith in the SC game throw the ball bunches of times with him injured, we put Lynn in when game is over and we score. Smith now healthy Lynn absolutely can’t throw the ball that’s obvious unless the target is standing still. he can’t see over the line of scrimmage unless out of the pocket. Now Smith’s not good enough. We score on our first two possessions and that’s it. Running for 302 yards doesn’t mean much if you can’t score. Lynn’s a great athlete but not a good QB. AS fans we can complain but nothing going’s to change. We can blame Eddie or any other assistant but the buck stops at Stoops. He has recruited players good enough you will win some games. He does not seem to be a very good game coach. I doubt it will get better seeing he’s been here 7 years and we keep seeing the same thing regardless of the OC. Some of the worst play calling I’ve ever seen. Let’s face it this year we’re average at best and that lays on Stoops. Thanks for coming to the game Joey Galloway.

    Look at the film and see what you can do better? THROW THE [email protected]#$>&” BALL!! THAT’S WHAT YOU CAN DO!

    He’s a terrible coach. He can swallow any pills he wants it won’t fix that.

      looks like we’ve found the guy who’s satisfied with mediocrity. Thanks for showing up, “catsarerunnin.”

    U can’t fix stupid

      I see stupid all the time manifested in inaccurate grammar, incomplete punctuation and using letters for words like it is a license plate for a cause or something!

    Think how the people who are paying to go to these games feel!!

    Don’t waste time watching film. Look at the stats. You ran the ball 64 times, dominated the clock, and passed the ball 7 times. That doesn’t work. Watch the LSU film. That is how you run routes and pass the ball. Time of possetion means nothing if you don’t score. Fire Eddie Gran!

    1. dcforuk

      Wow! Who put UK in a position to dominate time of possession playing with a W/R as QB? Who recruited the players who played and put them in a position to dominate time of possession?

    2. kjd

      Time of possession means nothing when you lose in the end!

    3. Collie

      Pretty sure most of those players were not recruited by Eddie Gran. But Eddie Gran called the plays that ran the clock and came up short on the score board.

    4. kjd

      Gran is controlled by Stoops. Gran is directed to eat clock and play with only the run portion of the playbook. Tough to win with those restraints.

    It’s bball season. Can no longer deal with these coaching decisions. Leave a hurt sawyer in too long vs sc. This cluster tonight, and against Florida. If he wants to go to fsu let him. Get a coach that actually plays to win and has a set.

  8. Hatchet

    Problem is you had 2 chances at 4 and 1, and you punted. Then asked about why you didn’t go for it and you said. We didn’t have enough time to score. REALLY, keep the ball and keep driving. Don’t give the ball over.

    Stoops has to take the blame for the mess this year. He is paid well to get results. It starts at the top. What is on the field is a result of who is in charge of the program.

    Can 5 million get us better. You bet it would.
