For all of you who wanted Eddie Gran gone, you almost got your way today. According to Matt Jones of Kentucky Sports Radio, Gran was offered the OC job at Georgia and a salary of at least $1.1 million.
In a Tweet, Gran told BBN that he is all in and announced that he would be staying at Kentucky:
This is huge for Kentucky to keep Eddie Gran after being offered by one of the best schools in the nation.
If you haven’t seen it yet, Paul Finebaum released his post-bowl top 10 rankings and the Kentucky Wildcats slid in the door at #10, but they’re still behind Florida, who is #9.
Paul knew obviously knew there would be some debate because he said “I’m sure everyone will agree on all of them and there will be no debate about any of the choices.”
People seem to forget that an unranked Kentucky team went to the Swamp and kicked the Gators teeth in. A lot of people say that if Kentucky were to play them again, then Florida would beat them. I think the game would be close and I think Kentucky could maybe even come out with another victory.
Here’s the complete rankings:
Notre Dame is a fraud, so drop them to the 10th spot, move everyone up a spot, flip flop Kentucky and Florida, and I’m happy.
After losing the Pinstripe Bowl 35-3, Miami football now has a vacancy at the head coach position. Mark Richt announced today that he is retiring from coaching and stepping down as head coach of the Hurricanes.
It’s not surprising since Stoops has connections with Florida and Miami. Stoops was the DB’s coach at Miami from 2001-2004, and was the defensive coordinator at Florida State from 2009-2012.
As seen above, Rowland says that Stoops is “likely on Miami’s short list.”
I would be shocked if Stoops left for Miami. The program down there is a dumpster fire and isn’t close to what it was when Stoops was down there before. We will likely be hearing more news on this throughout the day so stay tuned.
Matt Jones of Kentucky Sports Radio has been hinting at two potential transfers for Kentucky for a few weeks now. Yesterday it was announced that Miami freshman QB, Jarren Williams, was going to transfer. The destination was never said and now will never be as his father told 247Sports that Mark Richt and Jon Richt convinced Williams to stay.
They were talking to him yesterday and today about staying and competing through the spring. He felt as though he should had an opportunity to probably play more. He was frustrated by play time.” Williams’ father said.
With Williams now off the board, who is this mysterious transfer that Jones has been hinting at?
*I KNOW NOTHING WHEN IT COMES TO THIS*
Xavier Peters committed to Kentucky in July of 2017, then on signing day, he didn’t sign. Then in late January of this year, Peters flipped his commitment from Kentucky to Florida State during an official visit. He was ranked 173rd in the 2018 class by 247Sports and was UK’s highest-rated commitment in 2018.
Shocky Jacques Louis committed to Kentucky in late April of 2017, then in early June, Louis announced his de-commitment from Kentucky. He then committed to Tennessee in early August. After being committed to UT for several months, Louis de-committed from Tennessee after Butch Jones was fired. He then, in late December, committed to Pittsburgh.
Russ Yeast committed to Kentucky, then flipped his commitment to Louisville. With Louisville being in a mess, Yeast announced that he would transfer after their 77-16 loss to Clemson. His dad, Craig Yeast, played with Tim Couch at Kentucky, so would Yeast come back to his dads old stomping grounds?
Those are the three that I think are most likely. Remember, I know nothing when it comes to this, so I will find out when everyone else finds out. Other potential names would be Mac Jones and Alex Reigelsperger.
Matt Jones of Kentucky Sports Radio has been hinting at two potential transfers to Kentucky for a few weeks now. Today’s news makes one of those potential transfers maybe a bit clearer.
On Wednesday it was reported by Steve Wiltfong of 247Sportsthat Jarren Williams, who committed to Kentucky twice but ended up de-committing both times, will be transferring from Miami.
Williams played in just one game this year for Miami, completing one pass for 17 yards against FCS Savannah State. This was done to preserve his redshirt.
Although he will be required to sit out the 2019 season, Williams would still be a great pick up for the Cats, especially after getting juked twice.
Wiltfong says it’s expected that Williams’ name will be in the NCAA Transfer Portal by Friday, December 21st.
“I will tell you, some of the dudes we lost in the 2018 class and even 2017 class, you’ll see them talking to some of our other players like, ‘Man I knew we should have went there.’ They saw it, but they didn’t believe it.” -Vince Marrow
While it adds suspense, we now know who one of the potential transfers could be. I wouldn’t mind having Terry Wilson AND Jarren Williams as QB options. Stay tuned.
