    Like you said Uncle Matt first and then Stoops himself said… UK football has been a sleeping giant and now its waking up!

    Anyone know if you have to buy tickets for the spring game?

    General recruiting question: Due to volume, is a Florida 3 star kid equivalent to a Kentucky 4 star kid?

    Yesterday was awesome! I can’t wait to see how the team does this year. That 2006 class got us to some bowl games and it appears this class is better. Maybe we play in a big bowl game soon.

    2- There is a range of 3-star players:

    5.5 – Lowest 3 star (boarderline 2 star)
    5.6 – Solid 3 star player
    5.7 – Pushing 4-star player

    so it depends on where you fall…

    Competition is a big factor and what class you are in…

    So there is no way to really answer that- but if I had to, a 3-star Florida kid isnt better than a KY 4-star….but a 3-star Florida player is most of the time better than a 3-star KY player…simply due to competition. The only schools in KY that could really compete in Florida are Trinity, Boyle Co., Highlands and maybe Breathitt

    Interesting fact from the SVP Show yesterday on ESPN Radio:

    “The last time a current HS senior witnessed a non-SEC team win the BCS Championship, the recruits and commits were in FIFTH grade. Fifth grade!”

    My question for Coach Brown is how will he utilize his RBs and TEs in the Air Raid offense? Also, will we put out young playmakers in space and get them the ball to use their athleticism and speed? Go Cayts!

    Does anyone know where to find a video from the late 90’s when the air raid sirens were used. I found a lot of videos of plays both nothing that you can hear the sirens going off.

    The thing I am most excited about next season is that UK football will be actually fun to watch. We might not get immediate success because of the schedule but Neal Brown’s offense is going to be so refreshing compared to the endless bubble screens and QB draws on 3rd and long.

    Targets for 2014- Targets UK is in VERY GOOD position with:

    ***Nacarius Fant – ATH
    ***R.J. Taylor – one of UK’s top in-state targets and coaches like his versatility and athleticism.
    ***Jarrett LaRubbio (OL) 6-5, 260-pound tackle.
    ****DeShone Kizer – QB DT
    ****Drew Barker – QB PS
    ****Seth Hope -a defensive lineman from Highlands,
    ****Mikel Horton – four-star running back from West Chester (Ohio) Lakota West and the teammate of Kyle Meadows,
    ****Jack Cleary (DE)
    ****Paul Moses – He’s listed as a running back but the 5-11, 200-pound junior is being looked at as a linebacker
    **** Mike Edwards – Safety – friends with Jaleel Hytchye,
    ****Derek Kief a 6’5-200lb WR – Hytchye’s teammate – Some believe Kief is the best junior receiver in Ohio.
    ****George Brown – 6-6, 250-pound offensive tackle and is really, really impressive.

    Matt I agree with everything your saying about the program moving forward, so does this mean you are going to start learning more about College Football and the Kentucky Program? Not a slam,just want you as excited and knowledgeable about football as you are basketball.

    I want to make a point regarding UK fans living outside Kentucky. I moved to California a few years ago and my friends/coworkers here used to mock Kentucky football, and probably had good reason to. Now that UK football is back on the map, those people have shut up and taken notice. I’m proud to be a UK football fan, now as I always have been. It is just good to see others taking notice too now.

    Excited about football again, I hope fans will fill the stadium for the spring game. Tough decision to schedule on the Kentucky Derby of Keeneland. It will take hold people back from going to the game. Should be enough time to catch the last race, change and head to the stadium though.

    I think that’s a bad comparison (Barnes/Poythress). I think Poythress has been exposed a little bit, whereas Barnes was just figuring out the college game. Barnes was oozing talent in just about every aspect of the game, and Poythress has been shown to have some real weaknesses.

    You should have kept him on hold and had Ryan or Shannon come up with a trivia question.

    A radio show doesn’t mean you know it all, and you clearly didn’t show anyone that you do know it all by spouting off that you have a radio show and mocking the guy.

    I want to see Matt go one on one with someone. Why not Matt vs Shannon?

All people have to do is stop listening to KSR and visiting the page and it will go away… However, this is a place where we can get a lot of information on UK sports… Obviously his attitude and communication skills are not turning people away but rather the numbers are getting better….. Matt acts like a jerk but, until people stop listening he is what he is.

    To all the trolls concerning class rankings. From about #15 or so to # 35-40 via Rivals, you can about flip a coin over the difference in classes. UL isn’t close. We are in the middle of the pack, and could move up significantly. 8 FOUR-STARS is nothing to sneeze at. Add 6-8 others who should be 4-stars and you’ve got our class! Stoops topped the best class Strong has ever turned in at UL, and did it in only two months! And did it by taking 3 or 4 away from UL. Of the 5 recruits the two schools fought it out over, UL got ONE, and he was the 5th best one out of five! Stoops beat Strong 4 out of 5 times! You got our leftover. Might wanna get used to this.

    I know there are a lot of skeptics out there, they don’t believe the 28th class in the country can make a difference. I just want to put into perspective the kind of foundation this class could lay. Lets take the 2009 class of the Oregon Ducks. In 2009 they finished with the #32 recruiting class in the country, the #5 class in the PAC 12, and 2.92 average rating from Rivals (who I believe to be the best recruiting service). That same database has us currently ranked #28 (with the potential to improve) and an average rating of 3.05. The 2009 class at Oregon went to 4 BCS bowls, including winning 2 of those games and this stretch included a trip to the BCS National Title game. Over this stretch they did improve their recruiting class ranking each time (which Stoops & Co. seem confident will occur), and Oregon had a foundation built prior to the 2009 season. This could be that foundation to build upon, you have to start somewhere. Only time will tell with this recruiting class. I’m sure the haters will attack this post, but I just wanted to share that bit of info with everyone.

    Up until 2 years ago we were competitive and before that we were on a bowl streak and while we were only going 3-5 in the SEC, we were competitive at least.

    G-Unit. That 8th player being one Mr. Lawson!! Right?! I honestly expect BIG things THIS year from UK football. Teams will take on their coaches identities, and mirror them on the field. We saw that these last 3 years. Saw it with Brooks too! But we havnt had a coach of Stoops caliber. I look for a dynamic team, on both sides of the ball. I think that first signature win comes in week 3. And I think Florida goes down!
