    So, maybe Stoops makes a counteroffer to give Gran total control over UK’s offense? Fingers crossed. 😉

      This could be win-win for both parties.
      All depends on the hire. Need a home run. I opt for Bobby Petrino….lol.
      I know it is crazy, but that spread option with Touchdown Terry, he could blossom into another Llamar Jackson.

    It would be pretty incredible if he turned down an opportunity like this. No hard feelings if he goes.

    NO! **** that Stoops. Beat the $ offer and give him a promotion to Co-HC position, like in remember the titans. UGA takes Eddie and we do not beat them in the next 1/2 a decade. UK MUST win this off-season by keeping team intact! That includes backup QB and all coaches!!

    He should go but the real question is who do we hire next I would love to give a oc that likes to throw the ball downfield that’s what terry does best

    No one would blame him for leaving for that, but it’s not like Georgia is gonna be a less stressful job, either. As much blame and hate as he gets here, there’ll be more there if he doesn’t excel.

      Who has changed their tune? His offense stunk this year. The number show this. Needing the defense to not allow a SINGLE 1st down in the 2nd half of the Mizzou game, while still needing a walk off TD to win is nuts.

      Keep making up your own reality.

      Go Cats!

    kinda funny that when you go to Georgia football site, Gran isn’t even mentioned as a long shot to get the job….or to even be considered.

    UK had a football program before him, will have one after him. Every opportunity hold a possibility to upgrade.

    No brainer. That is a NC contending team and he can boost his resume if he does well for a head coaching gig. Key being he has total control of the offense. He is gone.

    We have gone through a few OC in recent history and need to try and keep this one. Stoops needs to loosen the reigns and give him full control.

    If he takes it, it’s a real f/u to the UK program, players, and staff. He goes from the program trying to get past Georgia, to the program stopping UK from taking the next step.

      How is that? That’s pretty selfish to say. Kind of like Snell and Allen leaving to go pro. Dumb comment award. You’re probably one of the several that have done nothing but complain about him too…

    My sources are telling me that Gunnar Hoak’s dad and Danny Clark’s dad are front runners for the position.

    • bigbluebanana

      If I was a head coach, I’d hire you for my staff. Being sincere here, kinda how some presidents in the past filled their staff with people who had severely opposing viewpoints. Best case scenario would be our team’s success through the friction. Worst case scenario would end in me smoking you in an interpretive dance competition at the 50 yard line at midnight of homecoming.

      Being able to tell it’s a football or a basketball doesn’t make you hireable. A 3 year old can do that. The onlything to be learned from you, BoB is that delusional people can type

    He will leave because of some of our dumbass fans



    • JPGott2
      4:13 pm January 10, 2019 Permalink

      You are right, he will leave because of the fans, and not because of the money, or them being a national title contender. I swear some of our fan base are mentally deficient.



    • UKinIN
      4:16 pm January 10, 2019 Permalink

      And which fans have higher expectations and will troll more relentlessly? UK isn’t expected to win the East. GA is expected to be a playoff team. If Gran has thin skin, good luck to him with GA fans.



    • meeksfor3
      4:17 pm January 10, 2019 Permalink

      Yeah I can think of 1.1 million reasons of why he leaves besides the fans.



  23. jytruebluefan
    4:15 pm January 10, 2019 Permalink

    I really hope Stoops counters with actual full control of the offense so we can see an explosive offense. I really do believe Stoops has held him back these past few years and hopefully will give Gran a good counter. I know our AD won’t be afraid to write bigger checks!

    According to a UGA fan on Cats Illustrated the UGA people are saying this isn’t true.

      Oh, then it must not be true. Message boards and all



  25. walden
    4:16 pm January 10, 2019 Permalink

    He should be given complete control of the offense at UK. I hope he stays but the future is bright at Kentucky. If he leaves for UGA no one would fault him, but if he stays at UK and gets another 9+ win season (which should happen) I can see him getting head coach offers next year around this time.

    1.1 mil… that’s a lot of money. We’ll see if UK pony’s up and counters their offer. If not, it’s been real Eddie Gran.

    Kentucky won in spite of him and at times we lost because of him. Let him become Georgia’s headache and let Ky move on. We need an OC who is going to be able to regroup without the services of Benny Snell while having a quarterback who needs a lot of growth. Benny seemed to mask the quarterback play but new leadership is needed for OC; otherwise, it will look like 2017 and prior years.

      While I definitely agree that the offense in general and playcalling in particular sucked this season,especially in sec play, I hate to lay all the blame on Gran. Stoops is kinda notorious for putting cuffs on his OC and playcallers. It’s the reason Neal Brown left so quickly. Stoops wouldn’t let him take the reins off the offense. Hell he had him running jo jo Kemp in the wildcat most of the time for goodness sake. I’d just like to see an OC get COMPLETE FULL CONTROL of the offense from stoops just once and see what he can do. Maybe Gran would still suck but I’d like to at least let him have a shot with full control. Jmho

    While mediocre by SEC standards; 2017 still better than most years in the last 60 of UK football.

    UK lost, and now we owe UGA a “GRAN”… ?
