Kentucky Wildcats Quickies: Football Media Day Edition

Today is Media Day for the Kentucky Wildcats as they embark on Year 3 of the Mark Stoops era. After making dramatic improvements to the program since the day he got to Lexington, can Stoops take the Cats back to the postseason and bowl eligibility this season?

We won't know the answer to that for several more months, but we will get to hear from Stoops, Mitch Barnhart and many Wildcat players during today's festivities. We'll keep you posted here on the latest to come out of media day.
