    Love it, reminds me of his Super Bowl commercial where he said “we will get it done”., and he did. No reason to doubt he will continue it.

    Very much like his saltiness. That edge helps moving forward.

    I sometimes struggle with having higher expectations than should be expected, but I can see us with another 8 wins in the regular season next year. After GA, at MSST, and probably FL (unless we can start a new streak), I think we match up well with everyone. We will probably lose one to SC, MO, or TN, but I don’t see us falling to AK, or Vandy, and the 4 non-conference games are almost certainly W’s. Barring a complete collapse, 8 wins is not only achievable, but should be expected.

    And who knows? I was one of those who was so worried last year that we would struggle to get bowl eligible, and we took a major step up. Even with the loss of 2 generational players, and some other great talent, maybe we improve as an overall team, the youth has the talent to cover up the inexperience, and we enjoy another double-digit win season. After last year, I’m not counting us out!

      The “excuse” for not giving Kentucky football more “respect” is because of the history of the program period. Voters and national pundits aren’t going to do that until UK shows that they can consistently perform well over a period of time. Last year may turn out to be a “fluke” year…who knows right now? Time will tell.

      I’d suggest to Stoops to worry about his team, his schedule for next year and forget about everything else. Respect is earned over consistent performance over time…it’s that simple.

    Football games are won in the 60 minutes allotted. The Cats have been preparing for those 60 min allotments for 6 years. They finally broke through. No officials getting in the way.

    The media are swinging from the jockstrap that feeds them in weekly presser, pregame and halftime meals. They dont give a sht about UK. They won’t give them respect until they have to do it. Keep making em choke on it, coach!

    The history of the program doesn’t mean sht. This staff and these teams have outperformed better stocked and “starred” teams for years now. The media refused to notice as always. Screw em

      With respect, winning six or seven games with a brutally soft non-conference schedule, then usually falling apart in the stretch run of said seasons doesn’t really mean much.

      Last year absolutely did.

      Now we’ll see what happens moving forward which is what the national writers and football pundits are waiting on.

      They didn’t give UK much respect in those past seasons because again with their schedule and the way they usually finished them, they didn’t deserve much.


    Me thinks coach Stoops should engage his brain before making such a fool out of himself. He’s mouthing off like a UL fan when he whines about the lack of respect. UK is still everybody’s Home Coming Game and I don’t expect that to change overnight….or after one season. Most sports pundits had UK beating Penn State and that shows respect.

      You’re spot on. We had a good measure of luck last year & some breaks from the officiating that we haven’t gotten in the past. This recruiting class is not as good as the last couple of years soon…time will tell.

    Yall so negative lol. He just saying we dont need respect and we like being overlooked it motivates us. And yall trying to turn it in to him crying smh. And we didnt get lucky last year. We had an elite defense that kept us in games. And we had enough offense in 10 of them
