    Well, it now appears Stoops is going to have a VERY interesting opening game as UK head coach.

    Just to expound on that, it appears Bobby Petrino will be the new HC at WKU.

    WOOT!!!!!

    Just for clarification: Harbaugh, Taggert, Petrino in football over the past decade screams that WKU ADs know how to target successful young coaches.

    In basketball, the list is more extensive and goes back much further. Tom Crean being one of them.

    Only Taggert was young among the football coaches.

    Re: UK Football 2012

    I have to admit, Stoops would have been around 3 or 4 on my list but now, excitement is building and with the coaches brought on, looks like he was a good choice.
    Now if that just translates to the field...........

    David Elson was young. He just wasn't especially good.

    Bobby Petrino's young?

    I get what you're saying though.

    Has Charlie Strong earned a 4 million dollar a year paycheck?

    Or is Tom Jurich just spending like a drunken sailor yet again with the Kentucky taxpayer left to pick up the bill?

    Stoops does the "Y" in his first UK game today.

    I seen reports of the wrestler "Sting" touring the UK campus several days ago and wondered what was up. Seems as though, UK is recruiting his son, Steve Bordon who has UK listed as number 1 on his list right now.

    Re: UK Football 2012

    Stoops certainly hit the ground running. This might be the best group of Kentucky assistants since Don Shula, Buddy Ryan, and that crew under Blanton Collier.

    Of course, that group didn't break .500 in the SEC.

    Still, the schedule sets up nicely for Kentucky. There are at least seven winnable games on the schedle, and they lose only a couple standout linemen and a WR or two from a very young team last year. If they can find a couple of Randall Cobb/ Stevie Johnson-type playmakers and if Stoops can indeed install a moderately effective defense, this team could maybe win eight games.

    I think we're going to finally be able to recruit a team full of SEC-level players.

    I think Stoops and the staff he has assembled are going to be able to coach them up.

    But he and his staff haven't earned any of that yet... cautiously optimistic is what I guess I would label myself as. When I see next year's recruiting class I'll be able to tell you a lot more (not this current class, the one after).

    Re: UK Football 2012

    So in your esteemed position as fanatic par excellance, does Barnhart deserve credit for this hire, WMR? Because, from my vantage point, he's been AD at the time they've hired their best:
    Men's basketball coach (yes, including Adolph Rupp)
    Women's basketball coach
    Baseball coach (twice)
    Second-best football coach (Bryant number one, Brooks number two)
    Tennis coach
    Volleyball coach

    UK has enjoyed its most success overall (Barnhart's mission when he accepted the job, remember) since he's been AD. Women's basketball is now a Top 10 program consistently. Baseball is relevant. Golf, tennis, track, volleyball, rifle-- all are Top 25 programs or better nationally much more often under him than previous administrations. And, while I realize you don't care about the non-revenue sports, let me assure you, the university does.

    Not only that, Kentucky athletics also has made more money under Barnhart than any other AD.

    His teams have won-- and won clean. A basketball championship. The most sustained success in football in decades. Perhaps ever. Baseball in the NCAA field. Women's basketball in the Elite Eight. No major NCAA violations. No secondary violations that have brought any recrimations. The highest APR scores of any AD in school history.

    That's a heck of a resume, IMO.

    His pompous comments and attitude are still on the record.

    He botched hires at the only two sports that matter.

    He gets NO credit for Cal.

    Mitchy should just keep his head down and pray that Stoops is the real deal.
