    Coach Stoops kind of looks like Petrino…without the neck brace.

    And now… he’s at Kentucky. God Bless Ron Sr. and the Stoops Family.

    Wildcats. : ) GO BIG BLUE!

    For God’s sake, Maggard. You’re acting like Morrissey.
    “We hate it when our friends become successful.”
    Only you’re not so clever. Please deal with your insane
    jealousy in some constructive manner. Go volunteer
    somewhere or something. Crimeny. You get one
    precious life, and you spend it doing THIS?!? You’re
    not making anyone hate Matt Jones. All you’re doing
    is letting hatred eat your insides up and truly
    making a putrid mockery of your one fleeting
    life. When it comes time to die, this is really how
    you want to have spent your hours?

    I really like this hire. Good luck Mark, I hope you build something special here and make your own mark.

    It sounds like they had a great loving father. He would be proud of his sons.

  16. Wow, I had seen that on ESPN once before but had forgotten how their dad died. Very sad.

    I don’t see much changing. An assistant coach from the ACC is not going to be able to handle the SEC.

    An entire scroll page on KSR devoted solely to FOOTBALL. By Jove, KSR finally “GETS IT”. Good job…you get part of your man card back.

    Glad to see this… makes me feel EVEN better about him being our coach. Last year we just witness the best basketball season ever… possibly. Now we get ready to watch the start of something great for football.

    At least he can put together a complete sentence in an interview.

    Welcome to Kentucky, Mark Stoops. This has been a graveyard for good football coaches, but someday, somebody is going to turn our program around. I think you may be just the man to do that. I wish you much success here and go Big Blue!!

    12 – He’s still trolling around message boards claiming to be an insider to anyone who will listen. Its pretty pathetic if you ask me.

    Very happy to see this guy made it and now is our Head Coach, I think the guy will do great things here and I look forward to watching football again……….
