Read Heupel really made a push for these two and bombed out. When you let 2 middle Tennessee twins that are both ranked 4 stars got to UK when you're the UT coach, you are failing at a key piece of your job. If Heupel can't get this piece done he better pay a high powered recruiter to get in here and help him out.
Not sure how anyone can blame Heupel for this much less call it a failure.

Heuple just got here in January vs Stoops being at UK since 11/2012. How is that failing?

The twins are not as good as you are trying to make them out to be. They were takes, but they were not high priority recruits.

we were 3-7, and have NCAA sanctions. Kid wanted to be a qb in the Wing T.

Yeah why aren’t recruits more willing to come to UT right now!!?? I can’t think of a single reason....

I'm not 100% sure we pushed that hard for them. They may have let the staff know the one wanted to play QB and the staff didn't think they were worth the trouble. There are plenty of players that ate just as good or better. We'll get ours and if I had to bet on it, they'll never have the pleasure of beating the Vols. No hard feelings toward them just don't see these guys worthy of the heartache shown here.

So how do you force guys to commit somewhere?

So we're not rivals with Alabama and Florida anymore?
Personally, I don't think so, at least not in football. We are 1-27 combined against them in the last 14 years. But I am also a younger fan, so I have only seen us get our doors blown off by Florida and Bama year after year. Older fans may consider it a rivalry, but I would bet the opposing players do not consider it a big game or rivalry.

if Bailey was in at QB Tennessee probably scores on both drives. So 21-20. Plus the JT INT that gave them the ball on like the 30, take that out and we’re at 21-13. Not to mention if we score on that drive too it’s 28-13.

Kentucky has not beaten a Tennessee team that ranks in the top 100 in total offense since 1984. Our head coach has had a top 5 in scoring offense in the FBS the past 3 seasons, the most recent season they ranked 1st in the FBS

Basically what I’m saying is last year was an absolute fluke, Tennessee has an offensive mastermind head coach, Kentucky can’t beat teams that score in bunches, and will get lit the f*** up by Tennessee this coming season and many many more after.
Do you determine your entire life on If's?

That's interesting I didn't know getting your doors blown off by 27 in your own stadium is a "fluke". Hmm.
Consider yourself educated. And thanks for being the embarrassment that got the necessary boulder rolling to move on from Pruitt. Losing to Kentucky has been the sign for the last 3 firings...the 3 “wins” you’ve had in the last 36. Ringing endorsement for your program. 😏
