    Great job, as usual, both from the Hoosiers and from you guys in reporting on them. Impressive win tonight. Very impressive win.

    If one wants to look for worries, one is left with speculating that the extra minutes for Mosquera-Perea and Jurkin could possibly be disruptive – but I doubt it. The team seems locked in on target. Credit Crean for setting the tone and the team for holding to it.

    Mark Stoops named new HC of football at pUKe. Boy that hire did not take long coming.

    Mark Stoops to KY. Good hire, but I thought he’d go to Tennessee. Obviously Tennessee wanted a coach with head-coaching experience. This move is very similar to IU hiring KW. Experienced and very successful assistant coach from a top tier BCS-conference program that has been effective at every stop up the ladder.

    Stoops did a great job as Arizona’s Defensive Coordinator and obviously transformed FSU’s defense. He’s as crazy as his brother and should provide lots of entertainment on the sidelines. He will be formidable to recruit against. Great pedigree. I see him turning KY into a moderately successful team and then bolting to another, more prominent BCS-conference school within four years. No way he’ll stay at KY and play second fiddle to the basketball program for very long. He’s competing against his oldest brother and won’t settle until he’s in position to win a championship.

    I’ll guess that another Stoops could show up on the staff at pUKe. Of the brothers Stoops, Ron(oldest)is LB coach and Director of HS relations for Youngstown State. Spent decades as Asst.D/DC in Ohio HS football before YSU. He would be a formidable addition with his brother in Lexington if he wishes to go to the bigger stage.
