Eli Brown says other schools “dog UK” all the time

Eli Brown

Heading into year two of his tenure, Mark Stoops has the Cats on the map when it comes to recruiting. So much so that other schools are getting worried. UK recruiting guru Vince Marrow has been candid about schools using negative recruiting tactics against Kentucky, saying that the staff will “let our recruiting speak for itself,” but according to UK’s 2015 commitments, negative recruiting is a growing trend.

Justin Rowland interviewed a few of UK’s 2015 commits, and some said that other schools take every opportunity they can to talk down about the Cats. In fact, Eli Brown, the star of the class so far, says he hears the negativity “all the time”: “That’s all you heard from other coaches. They’ll tell you that you won’t win any titles or you won’t do too much there. They dog UK.” CJ Conrad says he hears the same, to the point that it becomes a turn off: “After you hear it so many times it’s like, ‘I get it. Okay, talk about your school now. I’m a smart guy.'” For the record, both Brown and Conrad were recruited by Ohio State. Hmm.

More good stuff where that came from, so go check it out.

    Well if Ohio State said it, you won’t win any titles there either. They’ve been over-rated since Eli was in diapers

      Ohio State will win a title long before you do. Seven National Championships. Seven Heisman winners. What do you have? Record for worst team in the SEC?

      There’s no doubt Ohio State has a far superior football program historically but Buckeye fans never mention that 5 of those 7 national titles came within a 17 year period and that they’ve only won 1 in the last 44 years. As for Heisman winners who gives a crap? Alabama has one Heisman winner in its history. Absolutely meaningless statistic.

      Oh yeah. Don’t forget the giant Miami got screwed asterisk next to that 2002 championship.

    Not really a comment on the neg recruiting but a negative comment about Mrs. Thompson putting a “check it out” link to a subscription site without warning readers – shame, shame. 🙁

    Good, I’m glad they’re using that tactic, shows their character as a program.

    I doubt many schools are worried about the anal cleft of college football.

      “Anal cleft”, huh… You seem to have an intimate knowledge of the nether region anatomy. Must spent a great deal of time around and/or have a fascination with that area..
      Add in the fact that this is a college football site–probably means you are a dude..
      Trolling a UK board would suggest… A UL fan.! Which further suggests a SINGLE Card fan who can, as we all know, only be tolerated by other single male UL fans…

      There you have it, BBN, —“Reality”s identity : a single male UL troll with a penchant for all things ass-related, who may only be found in the company of other males!

      The case is solved.

    Urban Meyer threw Florida under the bus the season after he left Gainesville and went to Columbus. All of the issues and arrests going on with the Gatora , and he had the balls to try to convince parents not to let their kids go there and go to OSU instead. Urban…those were your issues jackass! GBB!

    What do you billies want them to say? Go to UK…You’ll win championships? UK is an NFL factory? UK has a long history of success?

      They don’t have to say anything Billy. They’re allowed to talk about their own schools.

      Compared with who, Jackass?
      UK plays a top 5-10 schedule EVERY year. The best kids want to play against the best in the SEC–not in the ACC or Big 10..
      UK is working their way up against this Murderers Row too. We’ve still made it to bowls in 5 of the last 8 yrs. (after suffering through the head coach choice probably in our history) Now we’re stacking multiple top 20 caliber recruiting classes on top of each other.
      Last I checked, there are a pretty decent number of Cats in the NFL. Randall Cobb, Trevahan, Tamme, Johnson, Woodyard, Alfonso Smith, G. Williams, Corey Peters, W. Guy, Williamson, Larry Warford, Tim Masthay, etc…

      If we are no big deal, then why are you over on our board trolling? You must be worried or something because that doesn’t make sense…

    What I want other schools to say is that their schools are winning, and hope to continue to win. They don’t Need to dog UK or any other school. Talk up yor school and leave all other schools alone.

      Oldest sales tactic in the world is to throw up FUD…fear, uncertainty, and doubt about your opponent, especially if it’s a close race. If you have a strong product, you don’t have to denigrate your competition.

    Anybody who had Gordon Gee as a president you can’t take seriously.

    Since when is telling the truth to a recruit considered “dogging?”
