    UK is bringing in SEC caliber athletes and is building good depth in the freshman and sophomore classes...UK will probably not be as good next season as compared to this years team but the 2 and 3 win seasons are a thing of the past imo...

    I wouldn't annoint Pulley yet. I think Hartline will turn a few heads before he's done at UK.

    I think UK will have more games on TV next season. Which should bring in more recruits.

    You would if you would have gone to practice last year or the spring game. The QB race was even and I though Pulley had just as good of arm as Dre but he would kill you with his feet. There is no question who the starting QB will be next year and UK will not miss a beat in fact with Pulley's running ability the offense may be even better! Trust me he has a great arm.

    Maybe they'll try to incorporate some spread option stuff with Pulley at QB and a nice stable of RB's...wouldn't be a bad idea.

    Hope you are right! I just don't see it though.

    Count on it. The o-line is very young, there is a stable of good RB's and plenty of WR's to catch it.With Pulley they will spread the field.

    To be completly honest I really think that within a couple of years KY could actually become a football power house

    This game definitely helps in recruiting, but I'm iffy at best about UK ever being a significant force in the SEC.

    I am not iffy, I just do not see it happening until a higher profile coach comes in to play. Maybe UK can lure Petrino back after three unsuccessful seasons in Atlanta (do a reverse Rick Pitino move on the Cards ).

    I have the greatest respect in the world for Brooks, he has done a marvelous job, I believe an underrated coach and evaluater of talent, and has deserved the time he has received. But with the exception of a few players, probabtion or not, he has not brought in the type of talent to compete with the elites of the SEC on a year in and year out basis.

    Butch Davis, for example. He has taken over a train wreck program in UNC and already has some higher profile kids coming to play for him.

    I think Brooks has done the best he can with what he has had to work with, but like you I don't believe that he is the guy to lead UK to prominence. His name just isn't one that clicks with recruits and draws attention. They need someone young... Someone with some fire that will be able to stay with the program for a long time and really build it up. Alas, that's not easy in this day and age. Everybody is ready to pack and go as soon as another opportunity arises.

    Lets hope that Pulley gets his head in the game next season. Talent has never been his problem.

    Pulley's arm is nothing compared next to Woodson's. Brooks himself said that Hartline had the second strongest arm on the team so I would assume the coach knows who has a better arm.
    Pulley is more athletic, but great athletes don't always equal success. Anyone remember Shane Boyd?

    I think Brooks is a good guy for what we needed at UK. But, at some point, I hope we can upgrade. I think Brooks is a good coach to get our program back on track and make the UK coaching job at least somewhat attractive. When he took the job, UK had no chance of getting a big time coach, IMO, unless some elite coach just wanted a big challenge (not likely). However, if Brooks can keep us on the current path, then UK should have better luck in their next coaching search.

    I think Brooks has done an admirable job recruiting at UK under the circumstance, and now that he's having some success, his recruiting should improve. If we can start to bring in better quality on the offensive and defensive lines, then we're in business. Until that happens, UK's ceiling is probably going to be middle of the pack in the SEC...

    It takes time to build in the SEC. Look at Spurrier...he's a better coach and recruiter than Brooks and he stepped into a better situation and he's still not there. People just need to be patient for UK's football...we're light years ahead of where we were when Rich took over. I like the way things are going at UK...I like Brooks and Joker, and I hope Randy Sanders will stick around for a while. The jury is still out on Brown as the DC...hopefully he'll turn our defense into a respectable group, or we'll get someone who can sooner rather than later.

    Start playing more games on Prime-time Thursday Night. It sure has worked for Louisville the past couple of years.
