Mark Stoops hasn’t had a perfect tenure at the University of Kentucky but when you look at his 6 year stretch at this school he has done some amazing things. Things that we had not seen in a very long time.
Here is a list of things Mark Stoops has done:
*beaten an SEC team not named Vandy 5 times in a row
*winning SEC record
*10 win season (also a 9 win season)
*Top 15 final ranking
*School Rushing Leader
*Top 5 NFL Draft Pick
*New Years Bowl Win
I came up with that list of things just from last year’s team. He also beat Tennessee for the 2nd time in 400 years in 2017. He beat a Heisman Trophy winner. The list can even be expanded with a little more research.
So what is the next thing you’d like to see this football program accomplish that it hasn’t in a very long time? I can only think of a few:
- SEC EAST TITLE
- WIN AT TENNESSEE (obviously can’t happen until 2020)
- FINISH IN THE TOP 10
These are very lofty goals, except for beating Tennessee, but after last year why aren’t these things possible? Might not happen this year but isn’t the program moving in the direction where these things are possible?
What else would you like to see?
