Mark Stoops is attempting to build something at Kentucky. The Wildcats’ football program has won just four games over the past two seasons–Kentucky went 2-10 in 2013, Stoops’ first year as head coach–and hasn’t made a bowl game since 2010.
There is some optimism surrounding the Lexington, Ky. based school, though, as this year’s recruiting class was ranked in the top 25 nationally.
To build something great, you not only need good players, but good fans. Kentucky’s team appears to understand this. Some of the Wildcats’ athletes spent part of Tuesday calling season ticket holders to thank them for supporting the program.

Kentucky has struggled to draw fans to Commonwealth Stadium in past years. In 2013, Kentucky filled just 87 percent of its stadium, the lowest percentage in the SEC. But support at the Blue-White spring game was good, so perhaps the Wildcats’ program is headed in the right direction.
