Hall of Fame Tweets from a Hall of Fame Coach

The only coach in school history to take the Cats to four consecutive bowl games was inducted into the UK Hall of Fame last night.  Under his leadership the Cats achieved success that’s rarely seen in the Commonwealth.

Since he retired in 2009, Brooks has not shied away from the limelight.  Although he lives on the West Coast, he’s a frequent flyer to Lexington, especially during Keeneland season.  When he’s not around town, Brooks remains involved with the BBN on Twitter.

Even though I just joined the work force, Coach Brooks makes me look forward to retirement.  Now a Hall of Fame coach, he’s even better at retirement, enjoying fishing, golf, tomatoes and travel more than any one person should, showing it all of on Twitter.


He’s cut back on the tomato Tweets.  This year’s crop must not be producing as usual.


Unlike most fisherman, Coach Brooks doesn’t tell tall tales — his proof lies in the pictures.  Like a true gamesman, he’s all catch and release.


Nobody cares about your golf game.  It’s almost as bad as telling people about your fantasy football team.  Rich Brooks is the exception to the rule.

What makes Brooks the best: he doesn’t just tell you about the good games, he lets you know when he sucks.

But he always manages to find a silver lining.


While playing the Oregon Trail, I always wondered, “Why is Oregon such a big deal?”  After looking out of Brooks’ back porch, I understand why.


His vacation views are even better, bringing me to my next point…

Humble Brags

Coach Brooks has always been a humble guy, but nobody can always be humble.  He can’t help but throw his awesome retirement in our faces.

And he got AP’s harness, no big deal.

Brooks knows how to vacation.

When the golf and humble brag Tweets combine, it gets out of hand.


Is this Deja Vu for Saturday?

    You are a good writer Nick- respectful suggestion: limit the pictures. They slow everything down and I don’t think they are really needed. Peace.

    That is a Halter. Not a harness.
