Do you still believe in Stoops?
Country music duo Austin’s Rose released a song titled “I Still Believe in Stoops,” referencing Kentucky coach Mark Stoops. One of the bands’ members, Tim Gore, is a Kentucky alum. In the song, the band talks about how, despite some recent struggles for the Wildcats, Stoops is still the right man to lead the program.
After inheriting a Kentucky program that went 2-10 the season before his arrival in 2012, Stoops has improved the Wildcat program slightly. Despite a 12-24 record in his first three seasons in Lexington, Stoops went 5-7 each of the last two seasons after the program won two games in his first season. But Stoops and the Wildcats have gotten off to a rough start this season, falling 44-35 to Southern Miss and 45-7 at Florida before defeating New Mexico State 62-42 last week.
The Wildcats host South Carolina on Saturday.
