WKU students are unlikely to be thrilled with the newest quotes from Hilltopper coach Willie Taggart. He was asked by local media about students at Western who wear UK gear around campus and he said, “the reason those people are at WKU is because they probably didn’t get into Kentucky.” The implication is that Western isn’t as good a school as Kentucky, which can’t make some students in Bowling Green all that thrilled.
Western has produced a number of journalists that are doing good work in the state such as Evan Daniels, Kyle Tucker and Cole Claybourn just to name a few. So don’t crap on Hilltopper academics. Plus Olde Stone is a great course. Still, Taggart is doing work at WKU and my guess is that win in Lexington and all will certainly be forgiven.
