LEXINGTON, Ky. (AP) – Kentucky coach Mark Stoops was "furious" that running back Jojo Kemp predicted a victory over the Florida Gators and "rubbing it in their faces."
Florida’s 27-game winning streak over the Wildcats didn’t stop Kemp from talking trash ahead of Saturday’s Southeastern Conference game. The sophomore from DeLand, Florida, told the Louisville Courier-Journal on Tuesday that "it’s going to be fun walking out with a victory and rubbing it in their faces."
Stoops said on Wednesday’s conference call that he was "outraged and I talked to him about it. … He was trying to make light of some friends he has on this program but like I told him yesterday, ‘you think they’re gonna hear all that? They’re gonna hear the last five seconds of what you said.’"
