    So there seems to be a rumor floating that Mark Stoops had a "relationship" with a 23yo UK undergrad, and she may be preggers... Ruh roh!
    If this is true, wow dude, talk about boneheaded decisions, but if not, then this seems pretty desperate from a fan base looking to get the coach out, and jealous because their in state rivals are seeing meteoric success. Either way, that's a hefty buyout for ol Stoops

    "However, Kentucky was a basketball school lead by legendary basketball coach Adolph Rupp, and football was beginning to rival basketball in popularity. Rupp wanted Kentucky basketball to be number one, and Bryant wanted Kentucky football to be number one. Something had to give. During a Kentucky sports banquet, after both teams won the conference championship, the university presented Rupp with a brand new Cadillac and presented Bryant with a brand new cigarette lighter. Bear knew it was time to move on."

    Is this a prediction that Louisville is about to crash and burn?

    I guess after beating the fake USC they took it down, and Stoops is safe a little longer...

    I wonder what the interview sounds like - at some point in time does the AD get a serious look on his face and say, "Now we're looking for someone to come in here and be successful, just not too successful."

    KENTUCKY, ONE SPOT AHEAD OF OHIO STATE IN COLLEGE FOOTBALL PLAYOFF RANKINGS, BENEFITTING FROM URBAN MEYER'S NATIONAL APPROACH TO RECRUITING

    [​IMG]

    Beyond the potential ramifications of the Buckeyes’ place in the standings and their chances of still having a shot to compete for a championship if they win out, one of the biggest things that stood out about Ohio State’s 10th-place spot in the initial College Football Playoff rankings was the team that came in one spot above them.

    While Kentucky is known for being a college basketball powerhouse, it isn’t known for being a college football championship contender. Eight games into their 2018 season, however, the Wildcats are 7-1 – including two wins over teams also ranked in the top 20 of the CFP standings (Florida and Mississippi State) – which earned them the No. 9 spot in the committee’s initial rankings.

    Unlike Ohio State, and most of the other teams in the top 10 of the rankings, Kentucky’s roster isn’t loaded with blue-chip recruits. Over the past four recruiting cycles, the Wildcats have landed no five-star recruits and just 13 four-star recruits, including two who have transferred from the program and two who have been sidelined all season due to health reasons.

    One thing that has stood out about Kentucky’s recent recruiting efforts, though, is that the Wildcats have loaded up on players from their neighbors to the north – specifically, players who haven’t received offers from their home state’s flagship school – and those players have been a huge factor in the Wildcats’ success.

    Kentucky’s current roster includes 28 players from the state of Ohio, and many of the Wildcats’ best and most important players this season have been among them.

    The Wildcats’ biggest star this year, at least on the offensive side of the ball, has been running back Benny Snell, Jr., a product of Westerville Central High School in central Ohio. Snell is among the nation’s leading rushers this season with 935 yards and nine touchdowns on 179 carries.

    A three-star recruit out of Westerville Central, Snell has said on several occasions this year that he dreamed of being a Buckeye, but chose to become a Wildcat because he wasn’t recruited by Urban Meyer and Ohio State.

    “Growing up, Ohio State was all I watched,” Snell told Bleacher Report’s Matt Hayes this week. “I was a Big Ten guy. I wanted to play for Ohio State, but they didn't even recruit me. I was a Jim Tressel guy. He was the man, the head coach. Then Urban Meyer came into the mix and things got different. I always kept that in the back of my mind: Ohio State didn't want me. Somehow, some way, I'm going to make them wish they had me.”

    Three of the Wildcats’ top four receivers this season are also Ohio products, including Lynn Bowden, Jr., who leads Kentucky with 43 receptions for 457 yards and three touchdowns, 13 kickoff returns for 269 yards and two punt returns for 63 yards and a touchdown. A four-star recruit out of Warren G. Harding High School in Youngstown, Bowden received late interest from Ohio State but remained committed to Kentucky.

    Fellow starting wide receiver Dorian Baker, who has 10 catches for 108 yards for Kentucky this season, was a three-star recruit out of Cleveland Heights. Tight end C.J. Conrad, who has 18 catches for 126 yards this season including the game-winning touchdown catch in the Wildcats’ comeback victory against Missouri last Saturday, was a four-star recruit out of Keystone High School in Lagrange, Ohio.

    Starting right tackle George Asafo-Adjei was a three-star recruit out of Lakota West High School in West Chester.

    Defensively, three of Kentucky’s top five tacklers this season are Ohio natives. Fifth-year senior safety Darius West, who leads the team with 58 total tackles, was a four-star recruit out of Lima Central Catholic in 2014. Fellow starting safety Mike Edwards, who is tied for fourth on the team with 46 tackles, was a three-star recruit out of Cincinnati’s Winton Woods High School in 2014. Linebacker Jordan Jones, who also has 46 tackles, was a three-star recruit out of Youngstown’s Cardinal Mooney High School in 2015.

    ORD_Buckeye Wrong glass, Sir.

    Fuck this guy. Bowen, Bowin, Boudein, Bodeen. Whatever the fuck this fucking three star fuck's name is, congrats on having a great season at the fourth or fifth school you had on you list. I think it's great that you dug down deep and made the best of your opportunity to make the most of your foosball career at a basketball school. That's some real gritty shit right there, and I applaud it.

    All I need to know is that it is November 1, 2018 and the UK football team finally gets a thread on BP and it is because of Ohio kids.

    Fuck 'em!

    Not sure why the hate here. Maybe being an SEC school but it’s better than seeing UT up there after the few years of ‘it’s their year’ they’ll probably lose by 20 this weekend anyway so I’m not sweating. Good to see some Ohio kids having success though. Probably would have seen any PT for a while had they chose Ohio State.
