The University of Kentucky football program has been on the verge of a complete turnaround after the hiring of Mark Stoops back in November. UK has been on point with everything from recruiting for future classes to getting sick new uniforms. Now, Stoops is adding more change to create a new era of Kentucky football.
The latest? Cleaning up the Stoops Troops and having them wear suits before each game.
Mark Stoops having UK FB players wear suits to games this year…yet another change from the past

Normally, the players high-five Wildcats fans down the Catwalk in sweatpants, tee shirts, and/or jerseys — so you have to wonder how the players would respond.
Here are a few tweets from current UK football players:

It’s encouraging to see current players responding well to change.
Not only do suits say “we mean business”, but it gives the Big Blue Nation something to be excited about for the upcoming Catwalks. Good move, Stoops.
