We knew change was coming to the University of Kentucky Football Program the minute Mark Stoops was hired as head coach. There was no denying it. Stoops had so much success at Florida State University, it was clear that even though it’s his first head coaching position, he was made for a job like the one at Kentucky.
The offense on Saturday was awesome. It was something Big Blue Nation hasn’t seen in many, many years. Patrick Towles proved from the beginning why he was the player chosen for the starting quarterback position. He could be one of the most well rounded quarterbacks that the Kentucky Wildcats have seen in quite some time. I’d be lying if I said I wasn’t impressed.
Every touchdown by the Wildcats was something impressive. They worked their tails off to show that they are no longer going to settle for mediocre, they want more. They want to be competition in the SEC. It may not be this year, but this team is laying down the foundation for the building of a powerhouse in Lexington, Kentucky. Sure, there is already one powerhouse in Lexington, but there is plenty of room for another one. How awesome would it be to be a powerhouse in basketball and football? I know I wouldn’t complain.
The crowd was impressive at Commonwealth Stadium this weekend. I was expecting a crowd, but not 50,000. I’ve been to games myself where there was maybe 10,000 on hand. It was disappointing, not many people believed in Blue. It’s great to see that the belief in Blue is being reinstated into the minds of the Big Blue Nation. 50,000 is strong, but I believe there could be more…these Wildcats deserve a sellout crowd. They are going to be the biggest contributions to the future of the Kentucky Wildcats Football Program.
Happy Labor Day, Big Blue Nation. Only a few more days until the Kentucky Wildcats are in action, again. Show up, be loud and be proud!
