Stoops fine with Lamar Thomas’ trash talk as long as he produces results

Stoops-LamarThomas

It’s been six months since Lamar Thomas left Louisville to be Kentucky’s wide receiver’s coach, and he’s certainly made an impression. Thomas, a former standout at the “The U,” has lived up to his boisterous reputation, doling out trash talk whenever possible and taking on UofL trolls on Twitter with glee. Thomas most recently ruffled Louisville fans’ feathers by telling fans at Saturday’s Women’s Clinic that he much prefers Mark Stoops as a boss than Bobby Petrino, and when asked about the comment both on KSR Monday and at today’s kickoff luncheon in Louisville, Mark Stoops feigned ignorance.

“Really, he said something?” Stoops said, claiming that because he’s not into social media, he hadn’t heard it.

“If it was just the flare, I wouldn’t be very into it,” Stoops said of Thomas’ antics, adding that he wants Thomas to get results from the wide receivers “by any means necessary.”

The wideouts better have a great year, because I don’t know if I can live without Thomas trolling Louisville fans:

    Lamar does not coach. He is a recruiter only. That isn’t abnormal, but let’s not act like he’ll be the reason the receivers get better or don’t.

      This guy must be on the staff.

      That wasn’t true at UL, and its still not true at UK.

      It is true. Many D1 programs have one or more coaches like Lamar. They recruit and a GA or another coach actually coaches their position. Marrow is another example.

      ALSO not true. http://kentuckysportsradio.com/football-2/coach-stoops-bbqs-with-his-defense/

      UL fans seem to be confused; 50% of them said he had nothing to do with recruiting at UL, and the other 50% said he had nothing to do with coaching – Petrino’s son did (violation, BTW)

      All I know is, it adds up to SALTY UL FANS who sweat his every move constantly. Don’t believe me? Check his Twitter mentions. They sure are extremely butt-hurt about a coach that “wasn’t all that”.

      Holy shit, NO. Hinshaw is, and has been, a QB coach. GTFOH dumbass.

      Go to practice. See who corrects and talks to the receivers even while he is coaching QB’s. Lamar is not a real coach. OL / OC / QB coaches at UK run the show.

      Also, why does Billy hill get to use profanity in all his posts and not get banned?

    He officially won me over with that Read For The World reference.

    Lamar left Louisville and joined Kentucky and has expressed how much better his life is. No wonder UL fans are salty.

      The fact that he left Louisville is why UK fans aren’t criticizing him for his foolish behavior. You want him to be a good coach because it makes you feel like you won against UofL, something UK hasn’t done in football.

      Congrats on tying up the head-to-head series with UK last year. Maybe this year you can take the lead for the first time in its 104 year history…

      UofL is better at football than UK, UK Big Board Update. It’s ok. Take a deep breath. Think about basketball. Imagine Coach Cal rubbing your back. Maybe say “Yahtzee” a few times. Oh, I know, drive to campus and caress the new national championship trophy. Whatever you do, don’t think about Lamar Jackson.

    Yahtzee, Yahtzee, Yahtzee, Oh god, it’s not working! I can’t stop these awful thoughts. UofL is better at football!!! No, no I can’t say it. Patrick Sparks, other great white basketball players, please help me. Oh no, it’s the memories of Lamar Jackson running wild on our defense….Coach Cal, please tell me a bedtime story about how this years team is the best ever… Coach Cal, why do you look so funny? Oh God, Coach Petrino! Please don’t score another touchdown on us. Please!
