Kentucky basketball is already an established power, and perhaps the signature program in college basketball at this point. Kentucky football hasn’t approached those heights, but football coach Mark Stoops has done a nice job of building a foundation at the struggling SEC program through recruiting. Stoops definitely draws inspiration from what John Calipari’s program is able to accomplish in Lexington. After Kentucky clinched an undefeated 31-0 regular season with its win over Florida, Stoops congratulated the team via Twitter.

Kentucky will always be a basketball school, but Stoops would mind siphoning off a bit of that radical fandom each fall.
