The University of Kentucky’s head football coach was spotted on Bourbon Street last night by a reporter from Tuscaloosa:

Stoops is in New Orleans for his older brother’s game against Alabama in the Sugar Bowl. Bob Stoops’ Oklahoma Sooners kick off with the Crimson Tide tonight at 8:30 p.m. on ESPN. Alabama is a 16-point favorite.

Have a good time, Coach.

Roll Tide.

    That looks like that mayor from Toronto. He knows how to party like a rock start.

    I talked to Tony for a few minutes in the lounge in Cancun. He was really excited to get his coaching career going. I hope to see him as an NCAA head coach one day.

    Makes sense to me. You have every opportunity to go watch your incoming QB and an uncommitted guy practice and show you are interested, while Saben has to coach his team. Look for a great Friday and a great Saturday that Alabama is going to have.

      This is a dead period. I believe coaches are not allowed at the games or practice. I want to say that pro scouts are also kept away from these practices as well.

      That’s right. This is a “dead period”. No contact is allowed with recruits or potential recruits.

    Yes, we are in an NCAA dead period until Jan. 15th. However, that is not specifically the reason the coaches can’t attend the all-star game. The NCAA has a separate rule on all-star games, regardless of dead periods.

    The rule enacted this summer states:

    “…prohibits a school’s staff members from attending an all-star game or activities associated with those games and from having in-person contact with recruits participating in the games from the time the recruit arrives at the event until he returns to his home or school.”

    Does not seem fair. The bowl teams have been allowed to practice .
