Stoops and Eliot visit Kash Daniel



After visiting Gunnar Hoak, Dakota Holtzclaw, and Davonte Robinson, Mark Stoops is back on the recruiting trail today, taking DJ Eliot to see Kash Daniel in Paintsville. Daniel posted this nice picture of the three in front of the Christmas tree this afternoon. Nice house shoes, Kash.

Both Eliot and Shannon Dawson have gone with Stoops to see recruits this week. Does that mean their jobs are safe? Excellent question. Mark Stoops’ final radio show of the season just started on WLAP with guest host Freddie Maggard. I doubt he’ll comment on staffing changes, but it should be an interesting show to say the least. Tune in to or watch the video stream on

      If you all are truly UK fans, and I have my doubts. Why would you post something so negative? UK needs talent. Talent wins. Fans that slam the program constantly do nothing to help the program. We all know that there are problems. Lack of talent and depth being the biggest problem. I ain’t saying everyone has to have blind faith but the constant negativity does not help matters…

      I have my doubts that you are a real fan. It’s not negative to face reality. This staff isn’t doing very well.

      You never responded on your previous post, so I’ll ask here:

      Where are your season tickets and how much are you selling them for?

      Wasnt going to comment but hit like by accident. If you really want the program to do well, even if you dislike the current staff, you never try to sway a recruit away. Its crazy. Case in point-Curry was a great guy and a classy man, but he was painful as our coach. I didnt want Couch to go somewhere else. Curry had Couch run the OPTION in his first start… poorly he coached talent led to his exit. Having more talent either wins more games or shows coaching flaws (see jones at LSU). Im frustrated too, but recruiting is the best way out of this….either way.

    If he doesn’t go somewhere else after this years debacle, I would question how smart he is

      Yeah….lets try to.convince our 4 star lb recruit to elsewhere because that helps UK how? If only Tim Couch had gone to Notre Dame or Florida……cmon dude. You love the Cats or else you wouldnt be on here so much, if you dont like Stoops i can understand, but dont throw bad mojo at recruits. Gotta keep the faith in the program if not faith in Stoops.

    This is one of the most important recruiting visits Stoops had to make. With a defense, as woeful as UK had in 2015, they need as much skill, talent, speed and size they can find, and find right now.
    The skill sets for the line, on both sides of the ball, was just awful, relative to standards mandatory, to be able to compete in the SEC. With “the required number of SEC games UK must play each season, it is imperitive the lines get better, or the goal of extending the season, is non existent.
    In order together to any bowl of any type, it is absolutely imperative to have quality line play. We have not had that for several years, and based on 2015, it may be several more years before UK will see the opportunity to get back to a minor bowl.
    Without Daniels, and the others, the light at the end of the tunnel will start to flicker, and then fade. Again, Stoops has to make the changes to get the most out of his resources, as quickly as he can. He absolutely needs a great recruiting class, and turn the heat up on the remaining players on the team. That will likely require changes in coaching, and likely, the present coaching staff.
    One thing is sure, furthering the fan frustration further in to 2016 will be a disaster.
    I wish him good fortune, it will be his 4th year. Many of the previous rationalizations on poor performance will be a bit more difficult for the media, fans and the University’s administration, to digest easily.
    $3.X million and a losing record every year for 4 years, does not purchase much sympathy, from those already “frustrated.”

    Sounds like a lot of trolls on this site. Shame on you.

    Daniels bleeds blue, and he will help move this program to where it needs to be.

      Where it needs to be. Where is that? Think this staff, that can’t get players on the field, that
      not developed ONE player in three years, that argues amongst itself all game, that has lost half the team who quit on them with no consequences, that has not made one in game adjustment in three years, that has the worst OC and DC in the country, that had zero, zip, nada head coaching experience before they brought their talents to Lexington, that has a worst record in three years than Joker in the softest SEC ever the last few years, that barely beat EKU and LL this year at home with all this “improved talent “,….. Jesus!!!!!!! Call me a troll. Fools like you, that year in and year out support this kind of garbage are, IMO, a big part of the problem. Do you really think a switch is going off next year in the heads of this incompetent staff and we will miraculously get ” where it needs to be”? Really? Were you saying same Gillispie’s second year? Gullible idiots. You get what you deserve. You should have no problem getting season tix next year. Put your money on this train wreck. Bet most don’t…

      Bigblue….so you dislike Stoops so much, you want all aspects of the program fo fail? I get that you want a different staff, hc, etc. But wishing recruits to go.elsewhere….calling people gullible idiots for hoping improved recruiting pays dividends? Better talent either gets you more wins or gets you fired for not producing more wins. One thing we should all agree on, is recruiting is important to progressing-either way.

      I admire your devotion….and….bitter much?? But you’re right…lets get some 1 stars in here so we can give you another decade of misery. Which will also get us a new staff, but no talent to speak of. In 50 years we have had success, just not sustained. The Bear, Curci, Brooks, Claiborne to name a few

      BBF, short dong silver and Keiths are nothing but loserville trolls along with cats pause, the constant attacks and ignorant comments, losers all. Welcome aboard Kash and hopefully all the others stick. Anything to upgrade the talent the dumb azz joker left here is welcome.

      I’m definitely not a UL troll. You obviously must be the troll. You seem infatuated with that term. I think you have your boyfriend dress up in a troll suit and give it to you hard.

      The internet tough guys are cowards. Most have never played competitive sports and have no idea how tough it can be. Kentucky is building a program under a new system and Coaches and real Fans support the program.

      You have such knowledge? If so, why aren’t you interviewing at Georgia for that head coaching vacancy? You must surely be the most intelligent human being, ever. And tough!! Whew! You are the real internet tough guy.

    After watching Kash twice, I would not be mad if this guy played offense some too. Talented to say the least.
