Stoops Strikes Again

stoops-pitch2

I think the form needs work.

 

 

I’m not saying that the Cats are contenders just yet, but I will say that Coach Stoops is doing everything in his power to get his team headed in that direction.  In a poll recently released poll, Rivals now has the 2014 Kentucky Football recruiting class ranked 20th in the nation, which is light years ahead of any class in recent memory.

 

 


 

 

 

Just some quick notes on this figure…

 

  • 20th nationally is still only good for 8th in the SEC
  • The Red Birds have the 12th ranked class for 2014.
  • As of right now, Alabama finds itself located at 18th… Don’t get excited, this will change.
  • Kentucky is currently ranked ahead of Arkansas, Vandy, and Auburn (War Eagle?).
  • Keep in mind that this is a preliminary report, and many of these rankings will fluctuate as the higher level recruits make their decisions.  But, it doesn’t hurt to at least start near the top.

 

 

Take it with a grain of Salt #BBN, but this is definitely a sign that good times may be just over the horizon.

 

 

 

Short and sweet this time guys, gotta pay the bills.  Come out and see us at Embassy Suites!

    Why even have a positive title and even bother to report the great recruiting start if you are just going to spend more time downplaying it and being negative at the end. Literally spent more time researching for the negatives than the positives.

    UL fan being the 1st poster = UK football heading in the right direction. The difference between UL and UK is that UK actually has to play REAL competition week-in-week-out, while UL plays the sisters of the poor.

    Football lass rankings can be deceptive early on as they can be ranked high by just having a lot of recruits on board. A class is based on total stars, so if a team has two 3-star recruits, and another has one 5-Star recruit. The team with the 3-star recruits will has the higher class because of accumulated stars. UL for instance has 9 recruits whil many others around them only have 6-7.

    As for this incoming class, we will at least finish in the top 30.

    And for my prediction for the coming years, Stoops will continue to build his teams with a top 30 class year in and year out making UK competitive. Some years we may even crack the top 15 if we get lucky.

    What a pity loserville’s bandwagon fans have to come to a Kentucky web site for real football news. Get a beer and disappear.
    Thank you Mr. Stoops for coming to Kentucky and breathing life back into our program! We’ll take some lumps, but the wins will come.

    Those sugar bowl champs are sure getting their butts whipped on the recruiting trail. 3/5 of our commits had offers from UL, while only 1/9 of UL’s have offers from us. 2/5 of UK’s rectuits are 4 stars (both in the rivals top 250), only 1/9 of Louisville’s are (and he’s not in the top 250). Of the teams with top 25 recruiting classes right now, Louisville has the second lowest average star rating (3.11 compared to 3.4 for UK). Once all is said and done, the sugar bowl champions won’t even be sniffing a top 25 class.

    UK, however, will end up with a top 20 class. UK will have at least 6 4 star recruits, possibly upwards of 8, and UK will be way ahead of Louisville in the final recruiting rankings. So enjoy trolling a UK site now while you can, Lil bro

    I’m thoroughly impressed with how well we are recruiting, but bragging about recruiting class rankings in April is as dumb as wiping before you poop.
