Kentucky football Media Day roundup

In a change from past media day events, Kentucky coach Mark Stoops seems to have some bravado heading into the 2017 football season. Stoops did not shy away from expectations, player development, and the state of the current program from when he took over from Joker Phillips in 2013. The media at SEC Media days in Hoover, Alabama picked UK to finish 5th in the SEC East. Kentucky coaches seem bullish on their chances to battle for the SEC East title and a chance to play in the SEC championship in Atlanta. With so much returning talent on offense and defense, it’s easy to see why Stoops, Eddie Gran, and Matt House like this team. Gran stated that there is a “competition battle at every position”, which for the first time in my lifetime, means UK is two deep with SEC caliber players at every position.
