Rich Brooks thinks Fulmer is another Bill Belichick

For the most part I admire Rich Brooks. He took a hapless bunch of losers and transformed them into the 7-5 Music City Bowl powerhouse that they are now. (At least until SEC play starts)
That’s why I’m shocked to find out that he actually accuses Tennessee of stealing signals from last year’s game. From KNS
Chip Cosby of the Lexington Herald-Leader reported that this isn’t the first time that Kentucky has felt like they’ve been spied on. Last year during Kentucky‘s 54-50 four overtime loss to Tennessee, towels were placed around members of the staff in order to cover up signals.
“They were either getting them from the field or the press box,” Brooks said of MTSU. “They might have gotten some help from Tennessee. Tennessee had them last year.”
Let’s examine that comment. First why would we want to help MTSU defeat a SEC team? That wouldn’t be good for the conference. Second if you’re using the same signals from last year, that you believe to have been “stolen”, and you failed to change them, then that makes you one hell of an idiot. So change your signals, genius.
I wonder if we have been stealing signals for the past 27 years. I mean come on we all know there’s a vast conspiracy to keep Kentucky football down.
Sure Tennessee has dropped as a program but not down to THAT level. Maybe Brooks should realize with losses to teams like South Carolina, Florida, Miss State & Georgia, that his signals didn’t work so why would we need them? After all we won those games with the exception of Florida.
Then again last year’s game went into 4 overtimes and KenSucky hung 50 on us, maybe we needed the Cap’n Crunch decoder ring to decipher just what signals we supposedly had. Either way Kentucky will never be a football school. When people see the “KY” on their helmets they tend to think of lubricant. And of course after 27 years of being ass raped by Tennessee in football Rick Brooks maybe beginning to think the same.
