      Just so we’re clear, are you talking about the Stoops’ true believing Kool-Aid drinkers or the people that face reality and are tired of losing and/or mediocrity that has been UK football for decades and views Stoops as an idiot? Not hating on you, just asking a question. I think it’s been clear where I’ve stood (Stoops is an idiot) throughout.

      If by trolls you are talking about those who question our coaches’ abilities to game plan, scheme, motivate, develop talent, make in-game adjustments, etc. then they don’t live in dark corners and sadly aren’t too nervous about their predictions. I’m sure you’d label me a troll. Whatever…I’d love for Stoops to prove me wrong. Been waiting about 2 years for him to do that.

      Billy Hill, not true, I got a lot of crap for calling out a player who I felt was dishonest. I love the basketball team. Cal puts up results that our basketball program deserves. I have seen others get frustrated with Cal’s choices and I’m guilty of that, but that’s not hating. A lot of folks on this board are guilty of that as well. 2014 team comes to mind when a lot of folks did so.

    3 man front, when you cant recruit players for a three man front, is crazy. Trying to work the same system for 4 years, and getting whipped all four years ought to tell you something, I mean, that is if and only if you a football defensive genious, because it is football stuff we would have no idea about.

    Mark Stoops: OK, BBN…..This time, I really, really mean it, I am sorry for the way we played, and I really, really guarantee, we will be better for the next game, and the rest of the season. We are better than we showed against a quality team like [insert the name of whoever we just played here] and we will get better.

    Remember Barnhart was brought in because he was a “football” guy lmao. The streak is old enough to retire from most companies so I’m retiring with it. Give me a call when ya beat Florida I might start watching again. I have enough heart ache in my life already. 🙁

    Our worn out defense is already cramping themselves out of the game. Hell just sneak out of the locker room and get on the bus at halftime.

    Can’t wait to see the adjustment Stoops, his OC and his DC make at half. Lookout Gators, we rule in the second half with football stuff we don’t understand but these guys do.
    Barnhart brought you this mess. Barnhart needs to clean it up tonight.

    who will have the larger margin of victory against UK this year, Alabama or Louisville? What pisses me off the most is I’m naive enough to thing that the university cares about the football program. There is no excuse for UK not to have a competittive program. It is so friggin frustrating.

    Stoops says we need to get more stops on third down and move the chains on offense. That’s it!!! Why didn’t we think of this before? We gonna own the 2nd half now!!!



    • Kernel Sanders
      5:33 pm September 10, 2016 Permalink

      The plan was to flip the script from the UofL game last year and last week’s USM game. The strategy is to lay down the 1st half and mount the big 2nd half comeback like we’re usually on the receiving end of. Brilliant!!



    • BluKudzu
      5:36 pm September 10, 2016 Permalink

      Who said this staff can’t make halftime adjustments? I knew he would come up with something brilliant, with football stuff we would not understand.

    5:34 pm September 10, 2016 Permalink

    Can someone please remind me what Drew Barker had done that made the coaches hand the program over to him last year. Surely it wasn’t pressure from fans and the younger players.



    • BluKudzu
      5:38 pm September 10, 2016 Permalink

      Because every other QB said FTS, and moved on.



    • mrclar027
      5:47 pm September 10, 2016 Permalink

      I think the coaching staff said forget the rest of the qb’s on the team last year when he continually played Barker against Vandy and UL no matter how bad the offense looked. He made his choice then, you know Towles isn’t staying around for his last year after that.



  32. KatsKlaws
    5:36 pm September 10, 2016 Permalink

    I will probably get burned for saying this …but one problem is Kentucky (and a lot of its fans) wants to run a “nice” program….they want players who grin and shake hands, hang out with sick kids, and build shacks in Africa…the all America good works team….this is a violent sport …they need players who can literally knock the $h.t out of someone and enjoy every second of it….fans make fun of other programs that recruit and give second chances to players who might have some off field issues….yet these teams kick the crap out of us every year…can’t have it both ways imo



    • A_Blue_Wildcat
      5:40 pm September 10, 2016 Permalink

      this has nothing to do with it, Kentucky has the same amount of mean kids that most other sec schools do. Its all just coaching at this point.

    • Craig Sagers Suits
      5:48 pm September 10, 2016 Permalink

      I argued for Petrino and got destroyed for it. No moral fiber people said about that guy. He was fired for his crap at Arkansas, paid 850k base at WKU where as Mark here was given 2.2 million base and Bobby didn’t do too bad at WKU for one year and look at UL today. He had nothing at the first tenure at UL and had them in an orange bowl before that was over to. Arkansas wasn’t that good and left with a 11-2 record.

    To say that this is a basketball school is an honor. Some schools have nothing to hang their hat on. However, to say that we can’t be competitive in football is a cop out. This school and fans deserve a competitive football team! For that matter, these talented players do as well! We as fans support football when there is hope. Unfortunately, I’m seeing hope disipate in both the fans and the players at this moment.

    Fans need to make a statement and stop attending the games. Become more vocal and publicly call out Barnhart and Stoops. The performance is dismal and the coach has no answers. The new OC was hired from Cincinnati. Who gets excited about bringing in the OC from an American Athletic Conference school? The program reminds me of the Bengals in the 1990s. Year after year of futility with the only bright spot being “next season.”

    Barker is a stationary target. Does not even get a chance to set his feet and look downfield before they are on him. Next man up. Maybe a more mobile QB will slow down the pass rush

    Somebody in Lexington needs to take the lead and start organizing “the movement.” Look at how many fans hang out in tent city for the year’s first practice. Get all of those people and march/protest on campus and get the tv media and newspapers to cover. Do the same thing at the practices to get the coach’s attention and the administration’s as well.

    God, I had always hoped coach Stoops would be the guy, but after last year and two games in this year, it is clear as day that he is done. He had the chance after last year to change the DC, d-line and o-line coaches but did nothing. BBN needs not only a new coach but new AD, as the current one has shown no ability to hire a top notch football coach ( coach Brooks was top notch, but at end of a career and took over a program on probation and undesirable to others at time).

    Well who’s next? Stoops may be here for two more seasons but he is completely done. I believe UK could offer $20mm a year and no one would take it to come to this multi-train derailment.

    Why would you leave a credible program for this cesspool? Even as an assistant?

    Stoops will be his brothers DB coach in 1 or 2 seasons.

    Once again I’ll say it, this is the most mentally weak football team I’ve ever seen in my life. There might be one or two players on this entire team that are mentally tough, the rest have the mental strength of a 12 year old girl on her period.

    I really think even the most ardent of the coaching staff’s supporters realize what a mismanaged mess this has become. Certainly even the Barnhart supporters have to agree that he has personally driven a stake through the heart of this program with his absolute ineptness. If Barnhart does not make a change, he needs to be fired, too. Maybe even before Stoops.

    EMBARRASSING Citizens across the great commonwealth of KY. I do believe the tax payers deserve a better product for their investment. The amount of money that was spent on this program and that is still being spent is RIDICULOUS!!! I do not as a tax paying citizen give you permission to spend my hard earned money on Frivolous endeavors specifically football facilities. Until there is a substantial return on this “investment” all funding should cease. Our country is bankrupt, yet we throw good money at bad money. Change the guard and utilize facilities we have for the next 10 years then reevaluate.

    BBN would never accept such play from the basketbawl team, why is BBN accepting it for the most prestigious and most watched sport in America, it’s time for Kraft and the other big money boosters to from demand from president Capilouto that Barnhart and the football coaching staff be fired.
