Matt sits down with Mark Stoops to talk all things football on Hey Kentucky!

Last week, Matt Jones sat down with Kentucky football head coach Mark Stoops on Hey Kentucky! Tonight, we got to see the first part of their conversation featuring everything you need to get hyped for the upcoming season.

In the interview, we got to hear about Stoops’ thoughts on his Kentucky career starting rough, the bounce back from 2-10, and just how close his team is close to winning ten games. We also get to see more of the personal side of Stoops, where he talks about life outside of football, how he handles criticism, and what he’s doing to try to make the Big Blue Nation proud.

Take a look at part one of the interview below:

    A hundred years ago, an 18-year-old anywhere in America could buy a Thompson machine gun (assuming he had the cash, naturally), and yet we somehow never had any of these massacres. Now why is that? What’s different? Oh, yes…now the kids are all doped up on Ritalin, Adderall, and more dangerous psychotropics because in the modern age, you just aren’t anyone unless you have a disorder that requires a pill. No wonder the medical profession and drug companies are working overtime to cast blame on the NRA when it’s really their poison creating killers. They know if Americans stop long enough to think logically for five seconds, the medical goose will be cooked, and they will wind up in prison for poisoning a generation to enrich themselves. Shame on doctors. I miss the days when only lawyers were sleazy professionals.

      According to Harvard study, only 17% of the population went to school beyond the 8th grade in 1918. Schools weren’t exactly loaded up back then. My dad grew up in a “one room schoolhouse”…

      But lets go on…

      “Prior to the 1920s, many of those laws were aimed at keeping weapons out of the hands of African-Americans in southern states rather than regulating firearms more generally. Congress reacted to the mob violence of Prohibition with the first federal gun restriction ever. The law banned the mail-order sale of handguns or any other concealable firearm.

      Likewise, it was mobsters (and their predilection for “Tommy Gun” or Thompson submachine gun) who inspired Congress’ second act of gun control, the National Firearms Act of 1934. This act taxed firearms under 18 inches (46 centimeters) in length and required registration of those same guns.”

      Yeah, there was no need to go on mass shootings then – white people were too busy lynching, organized crime was controlling entire cities… The good ol’ days…. Where were the “good guys with guns” back then?

      You value your hobby over the lives of children. You are a sleazy person.

      So your saying we should take guns from black people and mobsters? How racist. Smh. That might have been the worst argument for gun control I have ever seen. Keep tryin big board.

      Wow. That went completely over your head, didn’t it? You just suggested almost the exact opposite of what I responded with. Maybe leave the adult conversations to the adults, eh?

      Ok. First off, I was being sarcastic about the racist thing. Soooo that’s over your head. And second, what was your argument there? You literally told us about how the government tried to stop mobsters and then threw in some racist lynching? It made no sense. And last but not least, you kinda shot yourself in the foot because the government made these “gun control laws” and guess what, it didn’t stop anyone from killing anyone. There were just as many murders after those laws were passed as there was before. But since you mentioned prohibition, let’s think about how that worked out. Hmmmm. Some people thought it would be a good idea to ban the sell of alcohol and it literally made things waaaayyy worse than they were before so they brought alcohol sales back. How do you think it would go if they started trying to take people’s guns? I’ll help you with this one because your clearly not to bright, it would be worse than prohibition. Taking guns is not the answer. Now I do think that they should be able to study gun violence and figure out the problem but I can tell you they’re solution will absolutely not be to get rid of guns. So instead of calling someone sleazy because they’re not afraid of guns unlike yourself, why don’t you try to think of a reasonable argument to give. And leave racism and mobs out of it. That has absolutely nothing to do with the problem were facing here.

    Stoops did a nice job answering the awkwardly-phrased questions in the interview. I hope the questions posed to Stoops in part two of the interview will be more enlightening. Note to Mr. Jones. When conducting an interview, don’t preface all your questions with something that happened to you in your own past. Focus the interview more on Stoops, since he is being intereviewed.
