Mark Stoops was a happy, happy man after tonight’s win


Tonight was a MUST-WIN game for Mark Stoops, so as you might expect, he was happier than anyone when Kentucky closed out the 17-10 win over South Carolina. In the final seconds, Stoops turned to his longtime friend Eddie Gran and shared a high five that would make Maverick and Goose proud:

During Stoops’ postgame interview with Kaylee Hartung, Boom Williams ran by and playfully rubbed his head:

Darin Hinshaw was so excited he lifted Eddie Gran off the ground on the way back to the locker room:



There have been plenty of great UK/South Carolina postgame locker room moments in the Stoops era, including tonight’s:

Huge, huge win.

    Honestly don’t understand why he gets so high on beating USC every year. They aren’t what they used to be and we can barely compete with the rest of the SEC east. Beat Florida, Tennessee or Georgia and then I’ll believe in you.

    Original Slappy, a win is a win man come on. Especially an SEC win. Be proud of our Cats for getting a win and be happy for Coach Stoops he and this entire team have been working their tails off in order to improve obviously. Three straight wins over any SEC opponent is a big deal.

    This team continues to lack an identity. One week we are a high powered passing offense, the next nothing, the following a balanced offensive assault, and this week a shove the ball down your throat and stingy team. Gran is figuring out the offense, Stoops has improved the scarecrow defense, if they only had a brain, and again UK looks and feels different than the previous week. No idea who shows up next week, but happy for the needed win.

      It’s obvious that Billy is the illegitimate offspring of Bobby Petrino and a REAL Arkansas Razorback.
