    Can never have too many QBs

      “Practice behind Kentucky quarterbacks Terry Wilson and Sawyer Smith next season before taking over as the team’s starter for his final two years of eligibility starting in 2021.”
      Seems you’re forgetting we would have other QBs battling for the spot.

    2. notFromhere

      Always. Wouldn’t be KSRadio

    3. ukjaybrat

      Yeah what does this mean for Beau Allen who we all thought was the future after Terry. Heck of a QB battle for those guys

  2. Bluebloodtoo

    Would love nothing more than to see a highly competent QB under center at UK. That would certainly put us in a position for success. Maybe then people would be justified with their chastisement of Gran, if it still applied.

    1. mashburnfan1

      Except as of now we have no idea how good he will be in college. Been many highly rated players in all sports that were not as good as their rating. I would love for him to come here, and hope he is that good. Is really stupid for you to say “would love nothing more than to see a highly competent QB under center” and take a shot at TW with a player that we have no idea how good he will be. In case you were not aware TW “put us in a position for success” several times, in fact as our starting QB he is 12-3 and that as a FR and SO in terms of SEC QB experience. TW helped us win at UF, #1 pick Tim Couch could not do that, in fact he lost 65-0 at UF. And if you can’t see that play calling is a problem here {especially once we get a lead}, and Gran is OC calling those plays, you are stupid or blind.

      U mean the same Gran that has changed our offense multiple seasons after key injuries to QBs that forced a different style of play? Yeah he sucks.

    3. Bluebloodtoo

      Mash- read the d#$n article. This is not in competition with TW due to the transfer year of sitting out. I think TW is a good QB. The article suggests that this kid is a GREAT QB. maybe I chose the wrong words.
      To everyone else, I’ve been on here many times defending Gran and I’m not bashing him in this statement. Chill the hell out people.

    4. Cousins Fake Tooth

      Never understood why people hang from Grans nuts. Hes horrible.

    5. satcheluk

      People who work in the business and u sweat and football respect Gran as both a person and a great offensive coach. People who are ignorant do not.

    6. kydrummer

      If Gran is so horrible why would a top talent QB even consider UK?

  3. T-wah

    What about Beau Allen?

    1. TonyMontana

      What about him?

    2. Cmart0907

      Don’t worry. Stoops and Co can never develop any QBs.


      Allen is Good but this Kid was the #3 QB in nation overall and #30 player overall. Politics kept him from starting at AU. We will be contenders instantly for SEC EAST AND CFBP if we land him. He plays identical to Justin Fields they look like QB twins. We will be badass. Allen may transfer to get a starting spot somewhere else. I’ll take Gatewood every day all day!

    4. mashburnfan1

      Unsmart….what qb’s have they had to develop. The top ones they recruited backed out….Mac Jones, Jarren Williams etc. and are playing at major colleges so obviously the staff can see talent. Their big get in Drew Barker was great in the one half he played and we let him throw, then we went conservative and then he got hurt and never recovered from injury, plus he was not the most mature guy on earth. The staff quickly adjust and gets SJ to come here and he did ok, was tough as nails but was limited in passing dept which is why he was available. Then they scramble and find TW, who others wanted, he is basically a FR at major college level and we go 10-3 and win at UF and win Citrus Bowl and he improved as the year went on. TW comes out this year and looked improved but then the injury so we did not get to see how much he improved. I guess you think because we don’t have 4 quarterbacks ready to step in and win on spur of the moment the staff failed. Well news flash, several teams do not have 1 good qb and very few have 2 or more, is not like there are great qb’s just standing by waiting for teams. Look at Purdue and who has the qb guru coach most on here wanted UK to hire, they lost their starting QB and are 4-5 or so in the terrible Big 10, would be 2-7/1-8 in SEC Conf and they lot games before they lost their qb. What about WVU and their new coach who most on here also thought we should hire, building a program is a process and that process HAS to start on the O and D lines and that is what this staff has done. Build it the right way with depth at the most important positions first.

    5. chris gettelfinger is not walking through that door

      Bluevader, it says he was the #3 dual threat QB, not #3 overall. There is a difference. However, I want this guy! I love a guy his size who can run, similar to Terry.

  4. Thetruthshallsetbennyfree

    If he comes we may have at least 1 qb transfer because Gilmore and Scalzo will hardly see pt next year(Wilson and Smith will be 1 and 2) and the year after that he’ll be eligible, older, have some experience in the SEC, have a year in the offense, and has already proven he can be a scoring threat in limited samples all things Stoops considers a high priority.

    1. maximumscott

      The year he is eligible Wilson and Smith are gone. Leaving Gatewood, Allen, Scalzo, and Gilmore. If anyone left i would thinkg Scalzo would just bc his personality isnt 3rd string

    2. notFromhere

      The guys that are on the roster didn’t come here to hand the spot to anyone. GTFOH if you think they’re just gonna leave without fighting for the starting spot. NO ONE is handed anything.

      Stop counting people out just because of rumor and rankings. If this staff did that, we wouldn’t have been 10-3 last season. Allen wouldn’t have been here and played so amazing for us.

      Tired of the BS. Some of these other kids will surprise you, just like Bowden has been.

    3. Thetruthshallsetbennyfree

      Where did I count anyone out? What I said was Stoops preference has outwieghed talent at times.


    Instantly playoff contenders. He is a clone or replica of JUSTIN FIELDS. We will be dynamic and can win the job out right soon as he steps on campus. 5* QB # 3QB in nation and #30 player overall in nation. Politics kept him from being starter in Auburn and AU might be undefeated if he was QB. He is getting the Fields treatment that Georgia dished out last year. We will be contenders for EAST and CFBP if we land him.

    1. ukjaybrat

      “Instantly playoff contenders”

      i love this team and this guy appears to be a great player. but geez. let’s pump the brakes just a tad shall we?

  6. chris gettelfinger is not walking through that door

    Jack, you’re already giving him the starting job in 2021 if he comes to UK? I would think Allen and others would like the chance to compete even if Gatewood does become a Wildcat.

    1. notFromhere

      AbsoFNlutely agree!!!

  7. AreJ

    I’m not going to say HE makes us a CFBP contender but he is the kind of talent we just don’t seem to get at QB. I think with TW next year we can make a run at UGA and Gatewood would potentially keep us at that level moving forward. I like it for the numbers of it, 2 Srs. 1 So, and 3 Fr. it would give Beau a couple years to learn and develop. Scalzo would likely transfer but I think Stoops would’ve gotten a JuCo guy next year for experience anyways. If we get him that can be huge in us making a spot on the upper SEC East in what would likely be the last few years of the East/West divisions.

  8. JPhelps

    Nick Roush and his Touchdown Terry Man Crush are threatening you leave the program!

  9. downsouth

    If Stoops stays, we get him. If not, he goes with Stoops to FSU. Starting to think there’s a real good chance he’s gone. Will put us in great shape if he stays.

  10. notFromhere

    Would be great if we got Gatewood.

    Stoops is usually less upbeat at his game week press conferences than he was at this last one. It’s entirely possible he could get the job offer elsewhere. That’ll put a spring in your step.

    Doesnt mean he’ll take it.

    Terry Wilson was a 4star out of high school. Joey Gatewood is a TW type of prospect, so we do get those types of QBs. Both QBs didn’t get the starting job for their D1 teams right out of HS. Both are dual threat QBs.

    Hope we get him, and that the staff stays. He’d fit right into the offense and it might help us land another great athlete and TE yet in this class. (We might get them anyway, but it would still help it for a 4star QB to transfer in.
