With this top notch recruiting in football going on, the big question is can football and basketball share the spotlight? Well that is what Stoops was aked while at the SEC media days. His response was clever and smooth.
"Since I've arrived at Kentucky, people have been nothing but good to me and passionate about football," Stoops said. "We know they love their basketball, as they should. That program has been good for a long, long time. So we have deep tradition in basketball. We embrace that.Coach Cal has been nothing but good to me, very supportive in what we do recruiting, and always visible to our team and to our recruits. So we embrace that. It's been nothing but helpful.
"Our fan base is passionate about a lot of sports. I don't know how close you follow it, but the Big Blue Nation is very passionate about football."
