Mark Stoops Ballad

h/t Taylor Gilliam, Sarah Honchul, and Connor English

Nothing says “Friday” like a ballad, right?  Well, less than a week into his tenure, Kentucky coach Mark Stoops already has his own.  I particularly like the part where it’s Celine Dion.

    Completely off subject, but this has been on my mind. Ryan Harrow is clearly not the PG we thought he was. He is no longer listed on any NBA Mock Drafts. If he doesn’t transfer, will he cause chemistry problems next year when the Harrison Twins inevitably take over the starting guard spots? #TransferHarrow

    I really didn’t think it was that terrible. The idea behind it was funny, and at least his voice wasn’t bad. A little weird but not terrible.

    When you feed crap into a toilet, what is the end result?

    Does it need to be recorded and documented? Should it be. Do the right thing.

    This has been a public service message for the deaf dumb & blind.

    Well, that just ruined a perfectly good Friday………

  8. This is almost as bad as “Michael’s Dad” on the Jim Rome Show.

    BTW, if Neal Brown doesn’t come to UK, has anyone heard who might be Plan B?

    This is garbage. Who would do something like this? I’m gonna go back to playing Super Smash now.

    I liked it. Maybe a little more thought could have gone into the lyrics to increase the overall humor, but a very nice effort. ^^^ You’re all a bunch of hateful douchebags. Why put down a fellow member of the BBN?

    Finally some back up. Thanks 10. & 12. People just want to jump on and overreact because that’s the cool thing to do… Sounds like what we do w/ our basketball team.

    Still not as bad as the Brett Favre video yesterday. Thanks again Corey Nichols. I could have gone my entire life without seeing Favre’s junk.

    Yeah, that was pretty bad. 30 seconds into it, I was already tuning it out, and a minute in, I had to stop it. Not bashing the guy who did it, I just didn’t like it.

    I really enjoyed that and would like to thank the young man who poured his heart out to me.

    The only thing that’s embarrassing about this video are the people on here saying they actually liked it.

    I heard the first ten seconds of it and turned it off. Dear God.

    This is one of those thing you have to make DAMN sure is actually funny before you release it publicly… With that said, that was awful.

    Please don’t let ANY recruits see that. Why put something up that gives rivals any opportunity to mock us? That video, associated with FOOTBALL, will brand UK as a home for sissies!

    If you don’t like it, then get out from behind your trolling device (aka computer) and do something better.

    Atta way Tyler! Good work Connor, Sarah, and Taylor. Maybe we should do one for Cal next.

    25) I don’t like it….and it seems like most UK football fans don’t either. But why should we feel the need to try to do something better? At least we’re smart enough to NOT put something out that make us a laughing-stock. I guarantee that Coach Stoops will cringe if he ever sees that as one of the first things associated with him and UK!!!

    Guys it’s a joke! But I do take offense that I don’t have a titanic parable song after me.

    Very funny stuff. People, this isn’t supposed to be a serious dedication to Stoops. It’s all tongue-in-cheek, and intentionally cheesy. That’s the point.

    This guy needs to duet with the Arkansas woman lol maybe a Stoops- combo lol

    Corey quit trying to get your friends noticed by posting mediocre videos of them.

    27) I’m not saying you have to like it. My simple argument is that if people don’t like the current UK-fan related song for our new football coach and this is the best we have, instead of everybody sipping on Haterade, they should work on making a better fan-song for Mark Stoops.

    32) I admittedly can’t do one near as good as that….and that sucks….I couldn’t do one PERIOD! But there is lots of talented folks out there in BBN and I’m sure something much better is forthcoming. I realize it is supposed to be funny, but if UL or UT put something like that out, we’d all be ridiculing them so bad and we’d brand them as a bunch of pansies.

    Loved it, especially the last line. Hilarious and true.

    Not bad at all. I did kinda like it. He can sing and loved how he switched it around there at the end of the song. Lol. I like it.

    Come on guys. You don’t have to put it on your ipod, but if you can’t chuckle about this then, well, I just feel sorry for you.

    As if U of L and UT aren’t making fun of our football team already. This video will not bring anymore ridicule to UK than you negative posters on here! Fans like you need to go bandwagon somewhere else and get out of the way of true BBN fans!
