Did you miss this morning’s edition of Kentucky Sports Radio?  Have no fear.  This should cover everything Mark Stoops, Vince Marrow, Eddie Gran and Freddie Maggard said that we didn’t already talk about here and here.

Who’s Going to be the Quarterback?  Of course it had to be asked, and of course it did not get answered.  Eddie Gran referred to Mark Stoops and Stoops relayed the same answer previously stated, “I’m confident in both of them.” Sorry, but the QB battle will not be decided anytime soon.

Bud Dupree Called In.  The Pittsburgh Steeler spent ten minutes catching up with his UK coaches, busting chops and talking about his time at UK during the second segment of the first hour.  Before you scroll to the bottom of the post to listen to the podcast, remember that one time Bud scored a touchdown?

Bowden to Return Punts.  As expected, Lynn Bowden will replace Charles Walker as UK’s punt returner.  David Bouvier may get some play, but it’s Bowden’s job for the taking.

In his first year, the coaches wanted him to strictly focus on becoming the best slot wide receiver possible.  Now Gran said, “he’s bouncing all over the place.”  Bowden will be used inside, outside and in the backfield as Kentucky’s Swiss Army Knife.

These Cats are Fast.  Team speed has never been greater under Mark Stoops.  More players run faster than 21 miles per hour than ever before.  That speed will translate into all three facets of the game.

These Cats are Smart.  Stoops began the show by making a joke about his own call-in show, before bragging about his players.  Forty-six players had a GPA greater than a 3.0 to help the team finish with their best GPA ever under Stoops, and 16 of the players on the bowl game roster had already graduated. “I really don’t talk about that enough,” he said.

Eddie Gran likes Frank Sinatra.  Every person got two song requests.  Vince Marrow played “Big Poppa,” Mark Stoops played Toby Keith and Freddie played, “You’ll Never Leave Harlan Alive.”  The only surprise was when UK’s resident hunting and fishing aficionado requested Sinatra’s, “New York, New York.”

Saturday July 28 is the Kentucky Football Women’s Clinic.  Ladies, mark your calendars for one of the best events of the year.  I don’t know that from personal experience, but I’ve heard only great things.  Sign ups are not yet available, but we’ll share that information as soon as it’s ready.

Freddie is All In.  The Director of Player Development spoke like someone with experience in radio (I wonder why?).  He promoted all three new programs he’s implemented, and shared a story about Mike Edwards’ internship in the Kentucky State Police’s crime lab.  You’ll hear more from Freddie soon.

Stoops is Ready to #BeatFlorida.  If you think you’re the only one haunted by losses to the Gators, think again.

    Great radio show today. Thanks to Freddy for keeping it on UK football. It was the best show in a while. Loved the coaches responses regarding the potential of various players. Can’t wait to hear coach Mingione tomorrow on the UK baseball season.

      Yes, great show today, just missing the “most ridiculous manner”. We got lots of facts today, but I missed my optional facts. Oh well, it was a great change of pace, and I am looking forward to Coach Minge tomorrow.
