Stoops’ Introductory Press Conference set for Sunday at 3PM

Mark Stoops will be introduced as Kentucky’s new football coach in a press conference Sunday at 3PM. UK President Eli Capilouto and Mitch Barnhart will also speak. Unfortunately, the event is closed to the general public, so save those Stoops puns and signs for the spring game.

    Probably closed to the public to keep those obsessed with Petrino out.

    I’m very excited for my brother to get this opportunity. I think he will do a great job here at Kentucky especially with all of his recruiting ties. Never in my life have I been excited about next years football season just 1 week after the previous one ended. Great time to be a Wildcat!

    We have now confirmed that UK did in fact fire Joker Phillips. Not sure of the date but believed to have been sometime earlier this month.
    Stay tuned for the latest and most up to date sports coverage.

    We’ll fly down, pick him up, and bring him to the press conference. Might let the Heavy Hitter and Cal ride along.

    “closed to public”. Typical Mitch.

    The same public he wants to support the hire and sell tickets to.

    This is your host Matt Jones and this is the very first Coach Mark Stoops Radio Show.
    The Coach Stoops Show is coming to you loive from Malone’s restaurant and is sponsored by Friends of Coal.

    First commercial…we do not support Ashley Judd for Senator….paid for by Friends of Coal.

    First caller…John Short from Lexington…Coach we are glad you are here and I predict we will beat Western by 45 bigens.

    Folks we are going to take another commercial break because Coach Stoops just passed out.

    Would be far better if Stoops talks and Eli and Barnhart just keep their mouths shut.
