     The University of Kentucky has their new football coach, and Solid Blue fans are ecstatic about the hire.

     Fans that follow college football regularly know that Mark Stoops is an up and coming young coach, who despite no experience as a college head coach, has the pedigree and resume Solid Blue fans were expecting.

     Still, there were a few who expected UK to make a run at bigger named, and more experienced head coaches like former Arkansas Head Coach Bobby Petrino or recently ousted Auburn head coach Gene Chizik, who's only three seasons removed from winning a National Championship.

     Almost all Solid Blue fans believe, the Football Cats can only get better in the next few seasons, and say they're willing to give Mark Stoops a chance to get the Cats back to a Bowl Game.

I'm a Sooner, but I have made Ky my home for past few years.. I'm excited for the team... the fans...and whole state. I see potiential for Mark to make a Legacy here like his brother Bob has done in Oklahoma. I now have a team to root for in the SEC and may even wear UK blue once in a while and most certainly look for every opportunity to get to the game. Just wait and see, the whole Stoop family is football Legacy. Sooner-n-Ky
