Can Mark Stoops fix a divided fan base?

09/27/2016 07:45 PM

Mark Stoops has dealt with a lot of criticism lately and that continued last night on his weekly call-in show.

Most of the comments were positive, but one fan told Coach Stoops, “I’m sure you’re a good football coach and I think you’re going to do fine at some point, but personally I would love to see Tommy Tuberville who’s already coached in the SEC come to Kentucky.”

Stoops responded by urging fans to “get on the same page” and that he isn’t discouraged by the negativity.

Whether the comments affect Stoops or not, it is clear that the Kentucky football fan base is divided right now. Can Stoops fix this divided fan base? We discuss.
