BREAKING: Vince Marrow is staying at Kentucky

Vince Marrow has decided to stay at Kentucky! The Big Dog shared the news on Twitter minutes ago, confirming that he is turning down Michigan State’s lucrative offer to be its lead recruiter.

On Wednesday, KSR broke the news that Michigan State’s new head coach Mel Tucker was going after Marrow with an offer rumored to be around seven figures. UK submitted a counter offer that essentially matched it, but the Spartans came back with an even higher number over the past 24 hours. While no official figures have been disclosed, it’s clear Kentucky stepped up to the plate and did what they needed to do to keep one of the building blocks of the football program in place.

Fittingly, Stoops gave his longtime friend the Yahtzee treatment on Twitter:

Meanwhile, the UK Football Twitter account just won the internet:

    Well…For the first time in maybe only the past 40 years or so, I am HIGHLY optimistic (as opposed to maybe only somewhat optimistic) as to the direction the football program is headed. Thanks, UK!! And even more, thanks Big Dog. I sincerely hope we earn your allegiance here.

    Great news. Dodged the bullet. But this is the beginning. Next offer will be better. Or if not. the one after that one will.
    Can relax for now and by glad he is still with us.

      Not really. Not many places can make that offer for that position. No PAC 12 team can. Big 10 can as can SEC. MSU gave this liar over 5 million and dude is only 5-7 as a HC. They were desperate after being turned down twice.

    Smart move as that new MSU coach is getting blasted for being a liar. Seems just a couple days prior to leaving he tweeted he is staying and he loves CU and his players blah blah. Plus it seems he told recruits and parents the same including former NFL wr Drew Pearson and his son who is not happy. He will struggle to recruit, is why they wanted Vince so badly and this is why I said yesterday I think he stays. Vince does not need all that drama

    It’s all good now, but just wait until we lose a game or a player or coach doesn’t do what one of our keyboard coaches thinks they should and all hell will break lose on KSR. So many fair weather fans on here….in Football and Basketball.

      That’s not unique to BBN. It’s part of democracy. Everyone gets a voice. Every public figure has to deal with that.

      I’ve seen more hate on here than any other fan forum I’ve visited. I’m all for democracy but I’m also a fan of r.e.a.l.i.s.t.i.c e.x.p.e.c.t.a.t.i.o.n.s

      Sorry but the modbot won’t let you use those words without all the dots, not sure what it is about those two words that is so offensive to the bot.

      Well then if that is the case and how it makes you feel…delete your account and stay in the other forums that makes you feel good about yourself and no one makes you unhappy and sad…! Remember free speech on a public forum is a right not a recommendation…! LOL

    What will be interesting is if Gran’s offense is high powered and Brad’s defense is top 25 will they be asking for that extra figure.

      7:04 pm February 14, 2020 Permalink

      Yes they will – we should be able to match any asst salary if we want to keep someone but Brad White could be the next to be a HC if we hv a great year next year and that’s just part of being good. I’ll take it.
