Stoops says tonight was “absolutely a great night for the program”

Mark Stoops had a lot to be pleased with after tonight’s Blue/White scrimmage. One thing that stood out to him the most was the energy and excitement of the crowd. “You’ve heard these numbers for a couple weeks, but you never know who’s going to show up.” Stoops added that when he walked in he “felt it.” Stoops went on to call tonight a great night for the program.

“The atmosphere was overwhelming. The players and the coaches felt it.”

Neal Brown went on to add that the atmosphere was great for all of the recruits in attendance tonight as well. “We had a lot of recruits here. Kids talk. What they’ll be talking about when they leave here is that crowd.” When’s the last time that could be said about a spring game?

    For me the biggest story of this weekend was the amount of fans that showed up and the amount (and quality) of recruits there to see it. This is awesome

    I am amazed at how quickly this staff is getting things turned around here. The excitement is at, possibly, an all time high. The talent level looking at or coming to UK is like nothing we have ever seen. I know our level of play will be much higher and believe that in 3-5 years we can compete with anyone.

    Awesome turn out. Would be Great to see KSR pull out recent CWS blue-white attendance over the years to put this in perspective.

    Awesome turnout!! Proud to be a Wildcat fan!!! With that said… I’m sitting here watching the Jordan classic, and I’m sorry, but Randle is a better player than Wiggins and I’m sure glad he’s gonna be wearing blue this year!!!!

    #5, Sorry dude, those days are coming to an end. Nice try though. Now go back to the UL board.

    Tonight was incredible. One I never thought I’d see as a UK fan. We are on the rise!

    Julius Randle named MVP of Jordan Brand even though his team lost. He is going to be one of the best players ever to play at UK. His motor is as high or higher than Noel and is 100 times more skilled. Also, these Harrison twins are the real deal. WCS, Wiltjer and Poythress better get their shit together these guys take their basketball serious. I thought they were going to kill someone at the end of the game to try to win an All Star game. Intense.

    8: Agreed. He seems like an “at will” scorer. Next season is gonna be fun.

    You can’t say Randle is better than Wiggins just based on one all-star game. Most of these kids aren’t putting in a total effort especially on defense. But having said that, Randle had an awesome game!!! MVP!!!

    Great crowd tonight in CWS… Great night for the football program! Randle is a MONSTER! KENTUCKY was every other word out of dykes mouth…. All the kids looked good tonight. BBN BE PROUD! GO CATS!!

    #13…… Wiggins can jump and he has a couple spin moves and that’s bout it. This Randle kid is bigger, stronger, runs the floor just as good, harder to stop around the rim, has a better motor,and is an all around better scorer than Wiggins. I’m telling you…. From what I’ve seen, if I had to pic one of these two kids… I’d pick Julius Randle!!!

    Now I know why Cal went after Randle so hard and didn’t put up a fight for Jabari Parker. Randle is a stud.

    Sports radio what? These days, all go to the internet for information on sports. Radio sounds kinda antique, back to grandma’s time where even then there were no water heaters to begin with. Huh…
