Kentucky head football coach Mark Stoops’s tactics of sending hundreds of letters to potential players has worked out pretty well for the new coach, as his 2014 recruiting class is ranked among the nation’s best. Apparently the end didn’t justify the means to ESPN’s Colin Cowherd, who openly mocked Stoops on his The Herd with Colin Cowherd radio show. Stoops’ response to Cowherd’s criticism was simple yet poignant—he sent the radio host 50 recruiting letters (via @MattWagner23)… The show’s official Twitter account also tweeted out the photo of Cowherd’s 50 letters, meaning they took Stoops’ gesture all in good fun, as well they should have. Hopefully it also means that Cowherd won’t be too quick to judge any more college football coach’s recruiting methods so harshly, especially those as successful as Stoops, lest he have his ESPN mailbox flooded again with unwanted letters.
