Mark Stoops is set to be the head football coach at the University of Kentucky through the 2019 season after signing his second extension in six months earlier today.
According to these numbers from Saturday Down South back in August, Mark Stoops jumped up from dead last to sixth in the conference pay scale with his new deal.
No one loves construction more than the University of Kentucky and it plans to add more work to the campus at the first of the year.
You know what they say: It ain’t no fun if the homies can’t have none; therefore Mark Stoops and the athletic department are working on extensions for his assistants, too.
Stoops did not give a timetable on when he and his assistants will be throwing new racks in the club together, but he did confirm new deals are in negotiations. “Yes, they will be made,” he said.
How nice is it to see UK dumping money into the football program? If I had more time I would put Mitch Barnhart’s face over Kenny Powers:

For Halloween, the Around the Horn crew dressed up as various oddities and the best had a UK connection. Israel Gutierrez went as Drake (he looks just like him) and over the course of the show represented a number of teams, including the Cats. It was good stuff and a big A+ from me for the costume.
On a night that saw the return of LeBron in Cleveland, Jameis being Jameis in the second half, NFL Thursday Night Football and the Season 4 premiere of Project Runway All-Stars, one man captured the attention of America by wearing not one, but two cut-off t-shirts on a chilly night in Louisville.

In his defense, that things looks pretty real.
