Mark Stoops says Kentucky WILL accept a bowl bid

For the fifth straight season, Kentucky will go bowling. Despite the staff changes announced today and the toll of a long and emotional season, Mark Stoops said the team has decided to accept a bowl bid if offered.

“We do plan on playing a bowl game, by the way,” Stoops said. “We absolutely do. We had a team meeting this morning and the vast majority of the guys are excited and want to play. There are few that just need some time. They need some time to heal up both physically and mentally and I completely understand that but we’re excited about moving forward with a bowl game.”

Stoops said he hopes to have a new offensive coordinator in place by Early Signing Day (next Wednesday), but for the bowl game, the staff will run the offense by committee.

“[We’ll] work with the guys that are in place here. We have guys that we can move up and activate and put them in roles so we’ll manage that.”

CBS Sports’ latest bowl projections have Kentucky facing West Virginia in the Liberty Bowl on New Year’s Eve. Bring it, Neal Brown!

      No what I mean is overseeing things has the head coach of the offense I think they’ll hire a guy to come in and call the place maybe a guy like James Coley for example.

      Vince is great in so many ways but running an offense is not one of them. We need a proven guy that can run an offense against good solid Ds. Going to be hard to find but hopefully we get the right guy this time and stop wasting so much talent that we have been getting.

    Taking the risks into consideration I’m glad they aren’t going to take this opportunity away from the players
