Stoops gets knocked down and pops right back up

Back by popular demand, here is a closer look at a clip from spring practice when Mark Stoops took a hit and popped right back up like a boss. Practices under the new staff are intense, to say the least.

Anyone else feel like running through a wall? I can’t be the only one.

    This is the single greatest reason why this coaching staff will succeed. Passion from coaches seeps down to the players and in a year or two (maybe even right this moment) the KY football culture will change from being an easy win, to a competitive game, to one of the most difficult games on the schedule

    Great to see that culture being bred at UK. People who haven’t played do not understand the impact it has on the team, and who gives a crap how old the video is? It’s almost time for football and I’m ready to see the Cats! I could watch this video 10 years from now and still love it, so move along troll

    Wait, KSR can get on people for post old or late news but I can’t get on them about doing the same thing? Typical groupie.

    Poor Doo Doo Brown is so illiterate that he doesn’t understand what “back by popular demand” means. How sad. Maybe there is room for him in 3rd grade in some ghetto school in daville.

    Poor Linda Taylor didn’t see it before it was edited. BTW, more UK fans, players, and alumni live in Louisville than whatever backwoods stick you come from. Remember that when you trash Louisville.

    14 – My post was only 15 minutes after yours. That doesn’t alter the fact that this video was posted last spring on this site during spring practice and you would know that if you were a regular on this site. You were calling them out for being late when they were only posting it again for the fun of it. You didn’t know what you were talking about. Admit it. Fortunately I don’t have to live in Louisville, but from what I gather, most of the UK fans live in the suburbs while most UL fans live in the inner city. If you weren’t just a troll you would also know I am not a native Kentuckian and didn’t grow up in any “backwoods” anything. I’ve also lived in a city larger than Louisville and to be honest see absolutely nothing special about Louisville, especially now that Baer Fabrics has gone out of business. I did frequent their yearly 40% off sale many times. Having to put up with the UL fans there makes me feel very sorry for the UK fans that do live there.

    What a difference a year makes…this time last year Joker had the ice cream truck come to practice…how cute.

    My favorite part is Korem’s reaction. Watch how excited he gets when he watches Stoops get back up and start jumping around.

    Hope this little segment of this video is being shown to every recruit…Why would you not want to play for this guy…GOCATS!!!

    Just think, this time last year the team was having a pool party and eating ice cream.

    Awesome clip. This needs to be on the big screens before opening kickoff!! Everyone in the stands will want to tackle somebody. Love what this staff is doing.

    @ Doo Doo Brown, you’re an idiot so quit trying to be intelligent. If you were listening to the show this morning, Matt said they were going to repost the video again for people who didn’t get it catch it the first time around. Learn what you’re talking about before you open your d!ck sucker. Now go munch on your @$$.

    The video is epic. Football will be fun again and Stoops is a great hire. Linda Taylor, don’t pity any UK fans in “the ville”. The real UK fans love bringing the smack to the dirty line beards on their own turf. It can’t get worse than last year having the dirty birds luck into a national championship. I think doo doo may be grumpy from a Crown Royal hangover.
