Stoops “Very Frustrated, Very Ticked Off” After the Loss

IMG_1544

It was ugly, about as ugly as it gets and Stoops didn’t try to hold back his frustration after the game.

He was upset at the effort, the execution and the inability to handle adversity. “Give em credit, they beat our butts in all phases,” Stoops said.  “We’ve gotta play with a lot stronger attitude and mentality than that.”

He didn’t pile on or pick on any individuals in the locker room afterwards.  One thing he would not tolerate – moping.  If they are going to put their heads down, they are going to put their heads down and go to work.  “You can’t hide,” he said.  “You go to work and you man up.”

Stoops is determined to prevent the terrible feeling from being too infectious, but there’s only one way to get rid of it:

“The only way you make this feeling go away is get a victory.”

He has had enough.  Moving forward, he made a pledge for improved production as Kentucky desperately seeks to get back on the winning path.

“We will coach better, they will play better, and we will put it all on the line to get victory number five this week.”

    Did he stop to think he may be part of the problem. Same excuses over and over. Keep riding that Towles train Stoops. Don’t worry about that special teams coach. Don’t worry about the penalties. Don’t worry about the play calling. Don’t worry about the generic offense we are running. Don’t worry about the lack of tackling. This could go on all night.

      Yeah don’t worry about the Special Teams coach after giving up two special team TD’s. What a joke.

    We’re 8 games into the season should the coach still be talking about “getting better, playing better” when we have yet to show any signs of that?

      That’s Stoops M.O., he has been saying that since he got here, “we have to play better, we need to get better, and the coaches were out-coached”. If I am a head coach, the LAST thing I admit to, EVER, is being out-coached. That means that every single loss is YOUR FAULT, and that means YOU aren’t doing YOUR job.

    Stoops is the problem. Incapable of coaching better. He is O for his coaching lifetime when trailing at halftime for a reason – HE CAN’T COACH. Accept it and quit making excuses for the loser.

    I hate uofl as much as anyone on here. But Towles would not be in the two deep if he played for them. And I question whether he would be ahead of the Bolin kid from Lexington.

      UL plays in a JV conference and still sucks. Their QBs are terrible and they barely eek out wins against the worst in their conference, which are infinitely worse than the worst in the SEC. Towles would be their first string and Petrino would offer him coaching staff circle jerks every night.

    Does anyone not see the trend here. We are all tired of the lame azz excuses blaming the players when the whole coaching staff is the problem.

    You’re “frustrated and ticked off”? Try being a fan and watching this same old shit for the past 52 years…

    That is what to expect anymore. This team was beaten by Eastern Kentucky only to win on the scoreboard.

    Offensive play calling and scheme is idiotic. You have to either get a set of big boys on the offensive line and run the ball, or spread it out and chuck it to not allow their big boy defensive line to stop your run or kill you on a pass rush.

    Defense is this HC’s specialty. Teams are regularly scoring in high numbers on this unit. What gives?

    End of game, standard answer. Well if your not good enough or it’s not acceptable, let someone who is good enough make it acceptable.

    If he is really ticked off then him and his staff should take an automatic 25% pay cut and use that money to buy some damn players.

    “We will coach better, they will play better, and we will put it all on the line to get victory number five this week.”

    “And then if we’re lucky to get victory number five this week, I will go back to doing nothing the rest of the season; because at that point, I will be as good as Joker was, and we all know how long that slack-jawed yokel Barnhart let Joker stay around. I’ve got at least another 2-3 years of easy money at this rate!”
