Stoops expects Gunnar Hoak to stay at Kentucky

There’s been some uncertainty over whether or not backup quarterback Gunnar Hoak will stay at Kentucky next season, but today, Mark Stoops said he met with the rising junior and expects him to remain in Lexington.

“Yeah, I do. The meetings that we’ve had, he’s worried about getting better and working hard and having a great winter and having a great spring.”

Hoak played in four games this past season, going 13-26 for 167 yards, two touchdowns and an interception. Third-string quarterback Danny Clark announced his intentions to transfer at the end of the season; with Terry Wilson only a hit away from coming out, it’s nice to hear Kentucky will have an experienced backup waiting in the wings.

    Did Stoops already name the starter for the upcoming season?

    I got some news for all the Wilson fans on this site. You’d better pray Rose is a back on par with Benny. If we have to rely on Wilson’s arm Kentucky won’t see 10 wins

      He’s not wrong. If Wilson doesn’t read his progressions faster, we won’t sniff 10 wins.

      That said, I do expect he will improve. For the programs sake, we desperately need him to.

      4:31 pm February 6, 2019 Permalink

      Cinci you say he isn’t wrong but then go on to say you expect Wilson to improve. Read the original comment again. He has no mention of improvement. He said if Rose doesn’t do what Benny did we aren’t winning 10. You qualified the statement, he didn’t.

      Thank you Realme!! That’s exactly what I was thinking. There’s a reason this past season was “historical”. Not saying it can’t start happening more often, but man, just enjoy it for what it was and hope we see it again in the near future.

    Can either one of you tell me the pass percentage Wilson had on passes over 20 yards? How about interceptions vs thrown touchdowns? I’ll wait

      Still waiting on you to tell me where you coach. I asked first. I’ll wait.

      hard to judge as we seldom throw the ball more than 20 yards unless you count from one sideline to the other. And some may be a 20 yard completion but were actually forward flips to guy in motion etc. We did hit the wr screen for a couple big plays as well but most of them were losses and several turnovers or near turnovers. Also an INT may have been a good thing on 3rd and long type plays where it is like a punt or end of half Hail Mary situations. Of course a lot of 3rd and longs were hand offs or 4 yard routes called by Gran so who knows. We needed to take more shots down the field on 1st and 2nd downs. When we got to 3rd and long our OLine was not great at pass protection.

      I agree with everything you’ve wrote Mash. Some peeps just can’t seem to understand that Wilson can’t throw downfield with any accuracy and very rarely audibles because he can’t read a defense. I hope Wilson uses this off season to become a better passer and QB. If not it might be a long season

      StillBP you don’t have to be a coach to evaluate this, just watch or attend the games. Look, I think Wilson is a good kid and all, but he is never proven to be accurate beyond 15 yds. It’s just a fact. He’s still learning to read defenses and make good choices with the ball. I really hope he improves as much this coming spring and summer. But please, you don’t have to resort to cliches to prove your blue bloodness.



    • StillBP
      4:15 pm February 6, 2019 Permalink

      His name is CoachCat and he seems to know more than Stoops about coaching so I just wondered where he coaches. It’s funny how you all assume a first year player in a new system can’t improve and will just be the same next year.

      My God man, can’t you read? I said I hope he improves !!!

      No, I’m like Erin Calipari, I can’t read. I’m not even typing this, I’m talking it into text. I could’ve said the same to you when you assumed I was resorting to clichés when I was actually basing my comment on his name, not cliche. If my name was FarmerBP wouldn’t you think I might be a farmer?

    Really….experienced? Listen Hoak seems like a good kid but if we have to depend on him at all next year we will have a bad season. Like I said a hundred times, SEC is too good for him. Just like High School he was terrible in games vs good teams. Put up huge numbers vs the bad teams but very bad numbers vs the good teams. Now I won’t totally blame him as 1 guy can’t do it all in football and maybe his Oline could not block the better teams etc. but his numbers were beyond bad. For our sake, his sake and UK I really hope the time he has been here and learning is helping him and makes him a capable QB at this level. I’m just saying nothing he did last year shows me otherwise. Like I said at fan day he was inaccurate in warm up throws, no defense and half speed routes.

    I have to admit, I was a Hoak fan going into last season. I thought he was our best chance to win. But what he showed with the opportunities given left a lot to be desired. I still don’t think we have an SEC caliber QB!

    Wilson didn’t have many plays to throw the ball over 20 yards. Passing game was conservative since we had Snell. Wonder if we see a 2 quarterback system with Wilson mainly running the ball.

    So glad Gunner is coming back. I hope the coaches give him a fair chance to play.

    We’ll see what happens come spring, its still only early Feb. I would be surprised if Hoak did stay–he clearly knows hes not going to be the guy, so much credit to him if he does decide to stay. But as we all know, he wont ever see the field as a starter because his style is not what Stoops wants in a QB: a pure, drop-back, pocket passer. This is not the style Stoops and Co want here offensively. U will continue to see the Stephen Johnsons and Terry Wilsons recruited to play QB here–athletic, run-first-type QBs….even tho it seems theyve tried to turn Wilson into a pure pocket downfield passer which he doesnt seem to be the most talented at, rather than calling more plays to more so suit Wilson’s skill sets, like designed QB runs, or letting Wilson roll out from under center and giving him an option to make a play…..but thats a story for another day.
