Check Out This Player Card of a Young Mark Stoops

(Photo via

Bryan Berezowitz, an upcoming senior wide receiver on the Kentucky football team, recently posted this gem of his head coach on Twitter and wow, a picture truly is worth 1,000 words. But I’ll limit myself to under 200.

There is a lot going on here in such a simple photo.

First off, of course Stoops wore  No. 41. The best player he’s ever coached at Kentucky – Josh Allen – also sported the  No. 41, but in blue and white instead of black and yellow. Which isn’t a coincidence – it’s the football Gods taking control of destiny. Both men also played on defense. But as for the question at hand? Allen most definitely wore it better. Stoops is put at a disadvantage due to those ugly, plain Pittsburgh-Steeler-looking Iowa Hawkeye jerseys. Baby Stoops needs to work on that smile, too. Drop a chrome helmet on the head coach and maybe I’ll reconsider my decision.

Who do you all think wore it better?
