I'm one of those who've questioned Coach Brooks and his staff's ability to move this program to the next level. What is the next level exactly? I think we all have different opinions but I think most will agree that winning 3 SEC road games in one season for the first time (if I'm correct) since 1977 is truely an impressive feat.
I have to give credit where credit is due and admit that Coach Brooks deserves to retire at UK whenever he wants. The team could EASILY have quit on him last night and it has to say a LOT about the staff that they didn't. I still question naming an heir and this season (including last night) has had it's head scratching decisions but you can't argue with the results.
7-4 with the chance to be 8-4 by beating UT at home.....what more can a UK fan ask of a Coach and his staff?
