Kentucky had only one road win in almost four seasons under coach Mark Stoops until it won 35-21 at Missouri Saturday in a game it dominated.
Stoops knows it was important to prove his team could win on the road.
“What I loved about it is I loved our guys’ preparation – and that’s not coach-speak. I love the way they went about it. This group – that’s what I just asked them right now, ‘Are we satisfied? Is that it? Are we satisfied with this or are we going to go take it to another level?’” Stoops said after the game.
“And that’s what I love coaching about them: They want to go to work. I want them to enjoy it. They should. The music is on in there and they’re having fun, and they should, but tonight go home and watch somebody else sweat and relax. Let’s get back to work on Monday and not be satisfied. So, that’s our mindset.”
