There’s been a big controversy surrounding the absence of Boom Williams Sr. at last Saturday’s Cat Walk. Williams was missing inside the ropes, where he was the star of the show prior to kickoff in the season opener. Williams Sr. said UK Police told him Mark Stoops asked that he be barred from entering the street prior to last weekend’s game.
Stoops said that’s simply not true, however. He called Boom Sr. on Sunday to let him know he had nothing to do with it, according to Larry Vaught.
“[Stoops] told me he didn’t know where the police got that from,” Williams told Vaught. “He said he had not said nothing. He didn’t know how the police got the word to keep me out. He told me, ‘I ain’t told nobody nothing.’”
“He said if I have a problem again, come see him.”
I think we can all agree an exception should be made for Boom’s dad. Sure, if he’s allowed within in the ropes, one could argue any parent should be allowed as well. But I don’t see anyone else dressing up in a full costume and rallying the fans like he does.
I also think we can all agree Mark Stoops has a million other things to worry about than what Boom Williams’ dad is doing during the Cat Walk.
