Danny Clark’s Father Tweets about new Transfer Rule

The father of Kentucky quarterback Danny Clark posted a Tweet that is sparking transfer rumors.

The redshirt freshman has not yet taken a collegiate snap.  A couple of Tweets from his father make it easy to infer that his first will not be at UK.

Jeff tagged each of his sons, Danny and Alabama tight end commit Caden.  Ten minutes after the Tweet (which has been deleted), he shared the video below that explains the new transfer rules.

Frankly, it’s a shame Clark’s father made this a story.

Kentucky’s third string quarterback is one of the most beloved players on the team.  He has an energetic, infectious personality.  It’s not uncommon for quarterbacks to transfer.  It probably would not be a surprise to see one of them leave the program, but for this to surface after such a feel-good win is unfair to Danny.  His father is a high school coach.  He should know better.

    Awww man. Well hopefully it works out for him whatever he decides. It’s his life.

      Most transfers do not work out in college. I wish him the best, but where ever he goes there will be competition. He is only two injuries away from being a starter in the SEC. Stranger things have happened even if it is a long shot. I like that new rule! No reason to play bully over youngsters.

      Maybe it’s about his son transferring from Alabama to UK …

    3. notFromhere

      Considering his son isnt at Bama yet, it’s probably not about that.

    4. notFromhere

      Some DO work out… Stevie and Steven Johnson, Cam Newton, baker Mayfield, Nick foles, Russell Wilson…

    Danny Clark is a future star for us this is heart breaking

    1. Cletis75

      Same here, with a little experience, I think this kid could be great.

  3. tree_gardener

    Damn. Was looking forward to the day Danny would be the starter tbh

    1. Iamheasyouarehe

      That’s not going to happen as long as Terry Wilson is healthy.

    2. ClutchCargo

      Clark has 4 years to play, counting this year. Wilson has 3, so it’s possible.

    3. Realme

      Wouldn’t Clark have 5 by red shirting this year?

    4. ClutchCargo

      He redshirted last year, I believe.

  4. rickat

    This gentleman was a problem at each of the high schools that his sons attended. They transversed the state of Ohio burning bridges in their wake. I understand the young man only has one chance to play college but once he wasn’t the starter a transfer was very predictable.

    1. Luether

      My sources say he is a Democ Rat…

    2. CombatMedic_98

      And a transfererrrrrrr…!

  5. BigKat61

    Unfair for Danny. Was his dad HIS HS coach? if so, you can see there’s a sense of entitlement from his dad. Probably started all four years. Don’t know of course.

  6. rickat

    No, but Danny went to middle school in the Columbus area. Moved to Massillon and when unhappy there after a coaching change transferred to an Akron area school. Did start all four years and was the only freshman ever to start at qb for Massillon.

    Let’s be honest, if he can’t beat out Terry Wilson or Gunner, it’s best for all parties involved that he leaves. It’s not like he’s sitting behind Tim Couch or Andre Woodson here.

    1. david8577

      You aren’t fooling anyone; you’re no UK fan.

    2. katfan33

      You’re weak, little girl. Move along

    3. kjd

      E11Q: Andre Woodson doesn’t belong along side Tim Couch.

    4. chardun20

      To be honest, I wish I didn’t read your post.

    5. E11Q

      Actually, yes I’m a season ticket holder.

      And Woodson absolutely belongs by Tim Couch in terms of his production at UK. Let’s not forget Dre set the single season passing TD record for the SEC, when the SEC East was LEAPS AND BOUNDS better than it is right now.

      It’s hilarious to me how many people are now awestruck by Wilson, but willingly overlook how terrible he played against CMU. We’re talking about a guy that has more turnovers than touchdowns accounted for. I was at the CMU game. I heard how loud the boos got after Terry’s second INT of the first half. I heard how loudly Hoak was cheered for when he came out to replace him, and how quickly he was booed off the field after his second lackluster drive of the second half in the same game.

      All I’m saying is that if Clark wants to transfer, it’s best for both parties involved. He’s not an upper echelon type talent that will destroy a program if he goes elsewhere. He’s sitting third on a depth chart that features two other QBs that are mediocre D1 talent. It’s not on knock on them, or Clark. It’s just the truth. If he can’t beat out either one of them, then what’s the point in getting all up in arms about it? Let’s call a spade, a spade. Dude just isn’t that talented.

    6. ClutchCargo

      E11Q, while we’re being honest, can we acknowledge there is a difference between lack of experience and lack of talent? I agree that Clark can do whatever he wants, but to call Wilson a mediocre talent is just ignorant. And I’m pretty sure a lot of the morons booing our own players were season ticket holders, too; so that means nothing.

    7. jaws2

      Ohhhhhh boy, here comes the ‘racist’ card from our KSR lib friends!!!
      A ‘”spade a spade”!!!! Not in looney political correct world!!
      DelRay will chime in on 3,2,1,………

    8. E11Q

      Clutch, can we acknowledge that it doesn’t take “experience” to no fumble the ball when you’re not getting tackled? Wilson has done that twice in two game. I’m not saying that he doesn’t have talent, but he’s far and away from being categorized as anything near “elite” or even “really good”. He has ability, but it’s no more ability than many mid-major QB’s. Don’t confuse “athleticism” with “talent” sir.

      Y’all can jump all over the Wilson bandwagon if you want to, but it’s going to take more than a win against CMU and a BAAAAAAAAAAAAAD Florida team to convince me that he’s anything above average talent. I hope he proves me wrong and I’m definitely pulling for him because I think he gives UK the best chance to win games. None of the 3 QBs on the roster are more than “average” passers of the football. However, combine “mediocre” throwing talent with Wilson’s “great” scrambling ability, he clearly is our best option going forward.

      All I’m saying is pump the brakes on Wilson for now. Let’s see him have a game with more TD’s accounted for than TO’s before we start sizing this dude up for a statue.

    9. ClutchCargo

      1) If he fixes the fumbling problem, will it not have been because he has learned from EXPERIENCE how to secure the ball from being knocked loose by bigger stronger guys than he has played against in the past?
      2) You definitely said that his talent level is mediocre, which is simply not true. Unrefined? Yes.
      3) Don’t confuse athleticism with not having potential to be a well-rounded QB with a little time.
      4) You are the only one who mentioned sizing someone up for a statue. And that’s fine, because a superstar isn’t needed to QB this team.

      All I’m saying is you can be fine with a QB transferring without crapping on the ones who are busting their tails every day to be successful.

    10. ClutchCargo

      And be quiet while grownups are talking, jaws2.

    11. antiquefurnitureandmidgets

      “Let’s see him have a game with more TD’s accounted for than TO’s…”

      Already happened against Florida.

    12. notFromhere

      The QBs on the roster aren’t mediocre talent. Anyone that thinks so is an ID.EE.IT. Theygiveanyidiotakeyboard nowadays

    13. notFromhere

      Heisman winner a couple years back fumbled the ball without any assistance. HEISMAN.WINNER…. runaway troll, run a way

    14. jaws2

      No problem clutch, I’ll just put a you in with the rest of the pukes!

  8. Mr Morals

    He## who could blame him or Hoak for telling Kentucky to stick it. The only way either of them will play would be in blow out games or if an injury happened to Terry Wilson. Both Clark and Hoak are too good to be riding the pine at any school.

    1. cats646

      They’re not to good to be riding the pine at UK.

    2. philbo

      Glad Stephen Johnson didn’t have that thought process.

    3. ClutchCargo

      That’s how football works at just about any school. Maybe we should have only 24 players so everyone gets to play as much as they want.

    4. CombatMedic_98

      Yeah. We need to be fair and equal or someone’s feelings will be hurt…!

    5. jdarren1963

      I love ClutchCargo!

  9. BigBlue4Three

    Well did you really expect solid parenting advice from a genius that calls himself “Bad MF”? Instead of teaching a life lesson about competition, perseverance and hard work, let’s teach our son to run away when things get tough. Just another product of the “Participation Trophy” generation where everyone’s child is the next ALL-STAR.

    Go lead the Akron Zips to a winning record.

  10. A_Blue_Wildcat

    Can’t blame him since Terry will likely be a starter for the following two seasons after this one, but what kind of grown adult has ‘Bad MF” as their twitter name?

    1. yourfriendcasey

      He probably has every episode of Lavar Ball’s TV show DVR’d.

  11. sckysportsink

    The rule should be good overall for many athletes. Maybe Alabama QB Mack Jones will want to rethink his decision.

    1. ukisgr8

      Especially with Tuas brother coming in next year

  12. Bluebloodtoo

    Everyone has a different path to follow. The college game is complicated and takes a while for most players to adjust. Look at the statistics for college freshman and see how many of them get a starting role at FBS schools. Maybe Clark is one of those players that can do it. I’m not one who could tell you that. But i can say that the data suggests it is very unlikely for most freshman to succeed in that situation.

  13. az1006

    Didn’t Clark pick UK over Ohio State? If he had gone that route, does his dad think he’d be starting for the Buckeyes? Come on, man. It isn’t fair for Danny and it’s stupid of his father to tweet that and put his son in an awkward spot. Very few freshman quarterbacks come into major division 1 and start from day one. And the ones that do, are generational-type talents. Hell, even Woodson was hot garbage as a frosh

  14. Alleykat16

    Right now he is a injury away from being the backup, and if the team don’t respond to the qb he’s going in the game I mean he’s we’re he is suppose to be. But if he does decide to transfer I wish him all the best. Always liked him.

  15. rickat

    This father coined the nickname of ” Wall Street” for his younger son while he was still in middle school. As I noted earlier he has been the cause of turmoil wherever his sons have played.

    1. Luether

      Just doing what Democ Rats do…

  16. Booher

    I like it kydrummer

  17. Cmart0907

    We seen this coming a mile away.

  18. notFromhere

    Clark will play tomorrow. We’ll see How he does. Hope he stays. WILSON IS GUARANTEED NOTHING in terms of starting. It’s earned.

  19. krautdog

    Wouldn’t surprise me if both he & Hoak xfer!
    Couldn’t blame them.

  20. Kentucky Packrat

    I love Mark Stoops’ response to this: put Clark into a good drive and let him get a touchdown to boot.

    We might keep Clark, we might lose him, but let’s let the young man do it himself instead of letting his dad stir things up.
