Kentucky’s Rich Brooks is feeling confident these days, after coming off an 8-5 season with a win over Georgia and a bowl victory.
In fact, it sounds like he’s just getting started.
“I would be extremely disappointed if we don’t make some noise in this league and have a chance to compete in the (Southeastern Conference) race,” coach Rich Brooks said.
Brooks says this may be the best college team he’s ever coached — including an Oregon squad he led to the Rose Bowl…[Emphasis added.]
To this Dawg fan’s ears, that sounds eerily reminiscent of a now infamous quote from another head coach who once said, “I’ve been waiting 55 years to be the head coach of a football team that has this much potential, and I guarantee you that we’re going to get it done.”
At least Rich Brooks has never fought with anyone on his coaching staff.
