Earlier this week, Kentucky football players received bowl rings even though they didn’t win the TaxSlayer Bowl, a move which has drawn some heat online. I’ve already gone over why the players getting rings is completely normal, but Mark Stoops put it best in an interview on “Full Ride,” a show on Sirius XM College Sports this morning.
“Our players — we have bowl games and we have money allotted to bowl games so they can get what they want,” Stoops said. “I could care less what they get. They want a ring? We’ll get a ring. They want a t-shirt, we’ll get a t-shirt. They want a sweatsuit? We’ll get that. That’s for those guys to decide. So, I really don’t give a crap what anybody else says.”
YEAH. SASSY STOOPS. Hear the clip for yourself below:
