Two former Kentucky football players credit UK’s administration for finally putting forth the resources to help football be successful.
“I do see some change as far as administration. I think they have given them some things to be very successful to show that they are dedicated to turning the program into a winning program,” former Wildcat defensive back Warren Wilson said. “Not just to compete in the SEC, but actually have opportunities to be an SEC-caliber, championship-type team.”
Dennis Johnson, an all-SEC defensive lineman at UK, sees a real commitment to football and credits Stoops with helping make that happen.
“I think it all starts with the administration and saying what are we doing to do to help. When a program’s down, you’re got to put your money where your mouth is,” he said. “You’ve got to get the coach, get the assistants, you’ve got to upgrade your facility to give yourself every chance to get kids when they come in to look at the university.”
