Stoops says his Cats aren’t great, but they’re good


The first three games of the season didn’t go exactly as planned, but Mark Stoops still sees good things in his football team and he is confident they will improve.

“I know we’ll get better,” he said as he wrapped up his postgame press conference. “I really do. We’ve got a good football team. We don’t have a great football team; we have a good football team and they’ll get better.”

He also said there’s no joy in winning when a win becomes a relief, but “a victory is a victory.”

    Glad for a win but “good” seems like a stretch…..

    Maybe they’ll get there, but no “good” team gives up an average of 43 points to Southern Miss, Florida (that scored half as many vs UMass) and NMSU.

    A Defense coach should know that.

    The fact that stoops comes out of this game, a game where we gave up 40+ points to one of the worst teams in college football, thinking this uk team is good really shows just how clueless he is as a coach.

    Things went downhill the moment they changed the UK logo to the one with the stupid crooked K. Well, maybe it was before that, but the stupid crooked K isn’t helping.

    St Oops is not great…..not even good. Now, there’s film on our secret weapons.

    UK has what is probably the worst defense in the SEC. How can that make this team anywhere close to “good”? OK, I admit I am not using the Stoop’s Dictionary definition of “good” so maybe I have it all wrong.

    Cats won this game simply because they ran the ball so well. Drew Barker is a total fraud and should ride the pine forever. I see Johnson just getting better from now on if he plays but Stooped will likely play Barker just because. No hope for the defense just none maybe worse than the worst defense that Mumme had.

    Mike Majors? wasn’t this bad, on his worst day. This is the true definition of incompetence. DJ Eliot has got to go. I will take the win, but, wow, you just can’t be this bad and win a game in the SEC.

    Another ridiculous Stoops comment. We have the worst and worst coached defense in college. Not only can you say we have no talent there is 0 excuses why they had guys wiiiiiiide open on numerous plays. Stoops is clueless. Defensive coach? Hilarious
