Kentucky Sports Radio is reporting Stoops will be named the UK head coach this afternoon. I think it’s a pretty good match. Tough hole for Jimbo to fill.

Interesting.  Now Jimbo will be looking for 2 new coordinators instead of just 1.

Heard this too.  Tough loss for FSU.

If you’re happy with good enough, then good enough is what you’ll be. Greatness requires the expectation of excellence.

Obviously, the hot name that will be mentioned will be Gene Chizik. Who knows at this point what Chizik wants to do. Greg Hudson makes the most sense if he sticks around.

Ellis Johnson is back on the market now as well.  Would be a decent pickup at a DC spot…..was a much better DC at USCjr then a HC.

I always assumed that Greg Hudson was the DC in waiting after Stoops left. Hudson was a very good DC at ECU.

I think FSU fans knew we was leaving after this season so this isn’t a surprise to anyone. (Shouldn’t be at least.)

Think Hudson will leave with Stoops to be the D-coord. at Kentucky?
