The UK Football Luncheon is wrapping up at the Hyatt Regency in Lexington, and according to Drew, Mark Stoops, DJ Eliot, Shannon Dawson, and Vince Marrow all shared some great stuff. He’ll have a recap on the site later on, but this tidbit was too good not to post immediately.
Tom Leach asked Stoops about the family feel around the program, and Stoops told a great story about Matt Elam. The sophomore nose guard texted Stoops the other night to see what he was doing, and Stoops invited him over to watch an MMA fight. Apparently the two hung out until 1:30 a.m., when Stoops finally turned to Elam and said, “Matt, you have to leave. I have to go to bed.”
Props to Stoops for trying to rally and hang with a youngin’. 1:30 is LATE.
