    Hard to believe there were fans calling for his job as recently as last year, then we have our best record in 4 decades this year.

    1. bigbluebanana

      There were “fans” calling for his job last month…forget last year.

    2. BigolBlue

      Remember those uncovered wr’s and those bad in game decisons for a lot of games?? I do. With that said good for him. Still hilarious how many people judge other peoples “fandom”. Stupid

    3. Blue Bill

      Maybe because some morons want to run off a SEC COY. Idiots.

      Very true BBBanana

      I remember being at the game 2 years ago, cant remember who we were playing, but there were rumblings being whispered, that stoops was to be fired. I was embarrassed as a fan! In all my 30 years as a football fan, just when things got somewhat good enough to make the drive to southern miss, Florida and even to Lexington from Louisville, I couldn’t believe we were ready to throw away the only good coach we ever had. People dont understand the effort that goes into trying to get football players to want to come to a basketball driven school. They just dont understand what stoops and company have accomplished. Getting families to trust you for what? A trip to play in a stadium that holds around 60,000 and its cold and nothing to do in Lex, when they could go play at other places more decorated and with more fans. Its special what is happening and I just wish I could thank Mark Stoops first hand, for enduring what most would have left for greener pastures. He didnt and he brought in the talent we needed and “never flinched”. The rest is history and im so happy to write that, history!

      Wonder if there is more to do in Tuscaloosa Alabama than there is in Lex? How about Athen, GA?

      Last month is right…

      Congratulations for an honor well earned, Coach!

    8. henderblue

      What Blue Bill said. Congratulations Coach Stoops.

      Hell, I remember several years ago when some asshole was spreading nasty rumors about Coach Stoops cheating on his wife. That person should have been hunted down and exposed publicly. If I was Stoops I would have sued him for slander.

      Some of our “fans” are embarrassing. Yes, I have criticized some of the lapses and poor decisions, but I have also given the coaching staff props for things that went right, and for the effort it took to build the program from the dregs that Joker left for us.

  3. Iamheasyouarehe

  4. Smyrna_Cat

    Awesome year for UK football!!!

  5. JoshtheCATSfan

    Well deserved!!! Josh Allen was outstanding!!! Stoops totally deserved this credit as well!! Now we need to just whip Penn State and finish this thing out!!!!

  6. cats646

    Congrats to both of you!! Also bunchy, Benny, and Edwards!! Can’t believe a few more didn’t make those lists though. I thought CJ for sure would.

    1. SuperTroy18

      I thought the same thing.

    2. jaws2

      Not possible if you have the ball thrown your way 3 times a game. Just not possible. I

    3. cats646

      Good point jaws.

  7. Kat4Life

    Wow !!! Great honors for sure. Congratulations to all our honorees

  8. ClutchCargo

    The headline of this article seems almost surreal. Is this real life??

    1. chrislarkey

      And no Damien Harris on either team.

      He does however get to play for another Nat Championship.

      Great job Benny Snell. Overlooked no more.

    2. notFromhere

      Thought the same thing, CLarkey. So thankful we got Benny!

    3. JASUN74

      I absolutely love Benny!! That said, I think it would’ve worked out pretty good, if we had gotten D. Harris as well. I wouldn’t trade Benny now, but Harris is a great player to, and will do big things on the Next Level.

    4. InigoMontoya

      A big difference between the 2 RBs is the attitude that Benny brings. He has a grittiness that I believe has rubbed off on the team. His 2nd, 3rd and 4th efforts have been inspiring. Benny plays with a chip on his shoulder that is contagious. Not every good player has that spark, but Benny does.

  9. The Professor

    I am surprised Drew Lock took the 2nd QB slot over Jake Fromm.

  10. maximumscott

    That SEC 1st team would demolish any other conference first team.

    1. cats646

      SEC by 90, no problem.

  11. ClairsyDarsiy

    Congrats Coach Stoops and Josh Allen! Great season. Blue All The Way!

  12. notFromhere

    Josh Allen unanimous choice! Awesome job by such a great kid! Will be first NFL jersey purchase next year

  13. StuckinLville

    How did Baity not make this list?

  14. JASUN74

    Great job guys. And to Coach Mark Stoops, WOW! Thank you Coach, we’re all very proud to have you,
    And thank you for sticking with us, and turning our Program into one to be Proud of.

    And the good news is Urban Liar will step down after the Rose Bowl. Maybe he will ride off into obscurity but I doubt it, not with that huge ego!

    1. RealCatsFan

      What if OSU decides to come after Stoops? Yeah, I know, not likely, but you never know. He has shown recruiting success in that area and has ties there. You can bet that he would take the job if offered, so hopefully not.

    An argument could be made for Lynn on the second team
