      First of all let me say that I'm very pleased with the state of the fb program. I never thought I'd live to see it where it is today. Secondly, coach Stoops is very deserving of all the accolades that come his way. Just as I'm reluctant to anoint anyone the goat in any sport, I think we need to keep this in perspective. When coach Bryant was coaching at UK the situation was drastically different. For one thing the regular season consisted of 9 and then 10 games. Also, there wasn't the proliferation of bowl games that we have today. Back in the Bear's day, you had to be really good to be invited to a bowl.

        There is a long list of modern program headaches that coaches didn't have to deal with in the 50s too. It doesn't diminish BB to celebrate that Stoops has brought UK back from the dead and won more games than anyone else here.

        The way BB handled the "Junction Boys" there is no guarantee that he wouldn't have seen a mass exodus every year in the transfer portal era.

          As I previously stated I appreciate the job coach Stoops has done and continues to do. I also stated he deserves all the accolades he receives. Your pointing out the contrast between Bear's time and today reinforces what I said about being reluctant to designated teams or individuals as the goat.
