Kentucky football coach Mark Stoops may not yet have won a game in SEC play, but he’s got his own customized bottle of bourbon. No, really – Maker’s Mark, as it has done in the past with John Calipari and Rick Pitino, has produced 10,000 “commemorative” bottles of its famous bourbon with a photo of Stoops on the cover.
The irony here, of course, is that the photo features Stoops completing the “Y” in Kentucky at a basketball game.

All joking aside, if you’re a Maker’s Mark drinker, be sure to pick one up – proceeds go to UK HealthCare’s Gill Heart Institute.
