Rich Crooks visited Lexington this weekend and stuck around to check in on his old team at practice this week.
It's the second time Mark Stoops has gotten to speak to Coach Brooks about the program.
Plus Brooks spoke to the team after what Stoops called an average practice minus Jalen Whitlow for Mississippi State and minus physicality after a tough physical and emotional blow against Alabama.
But what Brooks had to say had Stoops in good spirits.
Check out the video for more from Stoops.
