ESPN’s Colin Cowherd decided to take a few shots at the Kentucky Wildcats football program and head coach Mark Stoops for the mass letter recruiting tactic that they have used on a few occasions. While Kentucky isn’t the only program to use that strategy to catch the attention of recruits, Cowherd felt that it was still necessary to single out the Kentucky team and coach.

As a result, Cowherd was in for a surprise when he checked his mail.

Stoops clearly doesn’t think that Cowherd is as important as the recruits that he sends out the mass letters too, but he still decided it would be a good idea to send the ESPN personality 50 Kentucky football letters of his own.

Here is the greatness that Cowherd received in return:

That’ll teach him to knock the recruiting process moving forward.

Teams do what they feel necessary to land their top targets. If being a bit excessive and sending 50 letters is what they have to do, then so be it – as long as they are successful.

    The Cats have stunk up the football field in the SEC for a long time. It’s going to take a lot more than a letter campaign to change that. Ole Miss and Vandy look to the Cats for their 1 sure win every season.

      MSU plays Kentucky every year, not Ole Miss. Ole Miss plays Vandy every year.
