LEXINGTON, Ky. (WKYT) UK coach Mark Stoops and his team hosted Media Day Friday. Stoops believes the mentality, leadership, accountability and dependability of his team has all improved.
"There's a lot of positions that go into fielding a football team, and everybody needs to take care of their business. I think we're a more reliable football team. Mentally, we're just much tougher, much more leadership, more accountable mentality. Physically, we're better as well, and we're deeper, as I just said. I think those are the big things"
Stoops said he would like to make a decision on a quarterback in the next three to seven days.
"I'm not going to put a timeline on it, but, sure, in the next three, four, five, seven days, we absolutely would love to have somebody take the reins of that position and say, that's my spot. "Right now it's just too even. I've said it before, it would be too reckless just to make a decision because I want to make a decision and not answer those questions. I'm not going to do that. It's not fair to the players. It's not fair to our team. It's not fair to the future of our program. It's a very important decision, and, sure, we'd like to have that done, but it's not."
