Mark Stoops Thanks the BBN with Full-Page Herald-Leader Ad

The Kentucky football team did not deliver a win for the sold out Kroger Field crowd last Saturday, but they want you to know that they appreciated your presence.  Today they’ve gone the extra mile.

The Kentucky football program took out a full page ad in today’s Herald-Leader to thank the Big Blue Nation.  Mark Stoops, assistant coaches and players have expressed their gratitude in interviews with the media, but today they took it directly to the media by signing the newspaper ad.  A few of the most recognizable signatures:

  • Cornerback Chris Westry
  • Linebacker Kash Daniel
  • Wide Receiver/Future Heisman Trophy Winner Chuck Walker
  • Offensive Tackle Landon Young
  • Defensive line coach Derrick LeBlanc
  • Center Drake Jackson
  • Defensive backs coach Steve Clinkscale

    Just win out the rest of the season and we’ll call it even

    Use the money spent on ads, and hire someone to just sit in the press box on a headset and make sure everyone is covered.

    I feel confident that uncovered receivers will not happen again. This is the type of stuff that happens when the head guy is trying to do too much and shuffling guys in and out at the last second. I’m guessing he will take RackEmWillie’s advice and have someone watching. Maybe not a new person, but one of the existing “quality control” guys.

    I bashed him last year and he proved me wrong. In Stoops I trust. UK Football is better than it has been in a long time! Class move Stoops!

    We have a quality, good charactered head football coach. While we may not be where we want to be as a program yet, i can see that we are moving forward with little risk of a slide backwards, unlike with other coaches that have tasted success here. Thank you, Coach Stoops.
