    Stoops, and Kentucky generally, have done a great job of seizing the moment. That's how they were able to land Jason Hatcher and make such a big impact on recruiting at Kentucky.

  • FAN REVIEW: Kentucky Fans––Pretty women, ugly football // Capstone Report

    Commonwealth Stadium is a great place to watch a football game, and not just for the women…who for some reason look incredible in blue and white. It’s just another one of those throw-back stadiums, seating under 70,000 for an intimate afternoon of football.
