Austin Dotson’s grandmother gave Stoops grief over losing the bowl game

I already have a frontrunner for my favorite player in the 2017 class: Belfry’s Austin Dotson. The three-star offensive tackle led Belfry to four consecutive state championship games and if he’s anything like his grandmother, we should expect great, great things. This afternoon, Mark Stoops told reporters that during his in-home visit with Dotson, his grandmother gave him grief over not winning the TaxSlayer Bowl.

“We’ve watched him and known him for a while. Great young man. I always get a smile when I talk about him because I just get a kick out of him, you know, Eastern Kentucky, winning high school tradition. I really enjoyed my home visit with him. I don’t know if I should say it or not, but I can tell you what grandma said to me in my first five minutes in the house, but I’d embarrass myself more than I normally do.”

After some mild peer pressure, Stoops caved and told the story.

“So, we left the high school and we’re driving up there — he lives 30 minutes from the high school, very hard to get to. I’ll just leave it at this: he took a lot of pleasure in just spitting up a lot of dirt on Coach Schlarman’s car, just spun his tires, got mud all over it. Grandma — I guess I have to say it — I’m not in the house five minutes and she’s wonderful, gives me a big hug, very inviting, and then she gets right into the bowl game, ‘What were you all doing, you looked so stupid!’ I said, ‘Hi, Grandma, I’ve heard about you.’ She makes some great fried chicken though.”

As you can tell in the GIF below, Stoops thought the whole thing was hilarious:


We’ve gotta get Grandma on the show, right?

    Got to love a trash-talkin’ Grandma. Reminds me of my own….
    A distant cousin was trying to put together the family tree; as my Granny was one of the oldest in the family, he worried her constantly…one night he called her at 10:00 p.m., and I heard her say…
