During his appearance on Kentucky Sports Radio, Kentucky head coach Mark Stoops discussed the impact that NIL deals have had on college football...
"I’m just saying, well respected, good coaches out there that are publicly saying ‘Yeah, we need money.’ So I’m not gonna sit on the bench anymore," Stoops said, via On3. "I also was on the record three, four, five months ago saying hey listen, whatever it takes. I’m gonna fight the fight. I’m gonna fight the fight. And I’m gonna fight the fight the best we can and we’re gonna have the same look. We’re gonna be the same tough, scrappy, physical football team that you always see. And we’re not gonna change. And I want players that come here because they want to earn it. And yes, I wanna help them earn it. I want a fund there [that has money]. You know what I mean? I want them to be able to do it because they deserve that. I don’t want guys that want a handout."
