Mark Stoops is making the rounds at ESPN, and just finished up his Sportsnation online chat. One bit of news did come out: the Cats probably won’t be sporting those new black helmets this season. When asked, Stoops said that fans could expect to see the black helmets “maybe somewhere in the future,” but “probably not this year.”
— Stoops says the staff is still working on recruiting several positions for 2014, especially offensive lineman, wide receiver, cornerback and defensive line.
— As for the current squad, Stoops calls the depth at defensive line and quarterback the team’s bright spots, and that because of a thin wide receiving corps, the staff will utilize tight ends to help cover the position.
— What has been Stoops’ coolest experience so far as Kentucky’s head coach? “Walking into the spring game. Walking through the Catwalk and seeing the passionate Big Blue Nation fans.”
