    Stoops is about as good a hire UK could ever hope for. He has the pedigree to be a great coach. Only time will tell if he can be a good head coach or not. Really this is the best way for UK to go for a quality head coach. Hire a cooridinator with a great pedigree and hope he can surround himself with good assistants. Also UK to needs to make the funds/resources available to him to succeed. If that doesn't happen then it doesn't matter who they have coaching.

    One way to do that is to schedule three hard teams like Miami, Boise State,and Nebraska instead of a teams like UAB and Jacksonville State. Don't ask for a home and home series. If it takes flying to Boise in the middle of November for a butt whooping to get paid then so be it. The payout will be worth it.

    Sorry to lose him at FSU, but I hope he does well at Kentucky.

    Lexington channel just reported Stoops # 1 target for OC is Neal Brown. Now that would up this hire greatly IMO.
    Go get'em Mr Stoops !!

    Update: Now reports say he has offered position to FSU OC James Coley but we shall see if he accepts or not.

    A well-deserved opportunity. He was very highly thought of in Tallahassee.

    Good to know. I was hoping Coley would come as RC but it appears he has decided to stay.

    Brown hired as OC.

    Have to admit, I'm liking this staff that Stoops is putting together.

    Let's hope we've found the next big-time up and comer in CFB.

    Re: UK Football 2012

    Brown's offense is Hal Mumme's, but with a bit of common sense thrown in. The defense should be at least respectable, as the HC and DC are both stalward defensive coaches.

    The key with Kentucky, as always, is how well they recruit. The QB looks solid, as do the running backs. The receivers look horrid. So does the line.

    Defensively, they should be much, much better this season.

    Special teams could also turn out pretty good.

    Stoops, depending on the schedule, could surprise some people next year at UK.

    On a related note, anyone think Charlie Strong is gone at Louisville? I'm guessing either Auburn or Tennessee.

    Hold the phone on Brown, apparently reports of him being hired at UK were premature.

    Would love to have him and his offense in Lex...

    The scuttlebutt I'm hearing is Bear Strong to UT and BOBBY P!! back to UL!

    LMAO, that would be something.

    Cards fans despise the guy, guessing they would forget about that pretty quickly though.

    Re: UK Football 2012

    Petrino back to UofL would be a great story, though.

    Great coach, down on his luck, returns to his greatest glory.

    I have no doubt Petrino would keep them relevant in the ACC and nationally. He'd be a decent hire, were he there for the long haul. (And that's the problem, really-- can you trust Petrino to stay over the long haul?)
