    In all seriousness we need some major recruiters in order to compete in the SEC

    we do need 4 and 5 star recruits but we do have good athletes. hopefully now we finally have coachs that will be able to develop that talent. something our last coaching staff was unable to do.

    1, that was hilarious, I almost spit my beer all over the screen. 2, it’ll happen no doubt in my mind while loserville’s coach will go to Auburn or Arkansas. And they’ll wind up with a good parole officer.

    If we have an uptempo OC there will definitely be an adjustment period for our current players, especially our offensive line that were brought in to run a prostyle type offense. Very excited about the future though!

    The best is when UK football fans cheer for the SEC, even though their pathetic program would also be at the bottom of any other major conference.

    Some of you think that just becasue we got the d.coordinator of Fl.st and a positon coach we all of a sudden are Fl.st people we dont have Fl.st talent. Besides did any of you see the gators and fl.st game Flordia was still dominate. With their players so temper expextations.

    5 turnovers was a big reason for the FSU D giving up all those points. And I don’t know who blue balls is, but he uses small letters to describe them and I’m pretty sure he hasn’t been laid in a while. Literally. If his coach could speak English we could have heard he hate Louisville fans and is already out the door. He loves the Big Blue Nation.

    The Gators managed to force five turnovers throughout the game and rack up 244 total rushing yards against a stout Flordia state defense.
    Headline from bleecher report it is what it is.

    Coach Stoops has all but called him by name on the call in show.

    Stoops has great defense, but if you watch any of FSU’s games, their offense isn’t worth a crock pot of poo. It isn’t bad, but it can’t stand up to a ranked D. You will give up 400+ yds/gm and 30+ points against ranked teams if you are on the field for 3/4 of the game. DJ Eliot and Stoops tandem will be a solid defensive foundation. Now all we need is Neal Brown to ratchet up the O.

    What is so funny is that not only will UL get their azz kicked, since they will FINALLY play a real team, but after they take a Fat L and embarrass themselves and their conference on National TV, Strong will then Bolt to the SEC LOL.

    Then, Fiftino will choke, like he always does,and fail to cut down the nets for the 12th straight year LOL.

    Hey UL trolls, enjoy your invite to the party in the Sugar Bowl. As your Big Brother, we fully expect you to embarrass yourself but at least you made it and it didn’t take a completely broken system to put you losers from the Big Least Conference and Northern IL in BCS Bowls, WTF?????? How broken is the system when a 2 loss UL team from the worst BCS League and Freaking Northern IL makes a BCS Bowl???????

    But in all seriousness, we are just still enjoying our National Title and back to back Final Fours and the hire of a great new coach. Best of Luck in the Sugar Bowl, God knows you will need it LOL. The Cupcakes are no more and reality is a Bi-ch LOL

    I don’t suspect UK will be pulling in great numbers of 4 and 5 star recruits any time soon (although I do think the number of 4-star recruits will increase), but Eliot could really increase the pool of 3-star recruits within UK’s reach. He coached at Rice a long time and was a Recruiting Coordinator there for three years (2007-2009). He should be well connected with high schools in that state.

    JC, you are spot on. I have a hard time understanding Charlie’s dialect, st first I thought it was a florida accent but I understand stoops dialect.

    What I gathered from Strong was that he doesn’t want to beat us he wants to BE us. Welcome aboard Charlie, there is an extra blue shirt in the corner.
