Eli Brown Bids the BBN Farewell
Eli Brown’s decision to transfer was a stunner. The Bowling Green native was the highest-ranked player in Kentucky’s 2015 recruiting class. Unable to add bulk to his wiry frame, Brown fell behind his classmate, Jordan Jones, on the depth chart.
When Jones was injured, the defense did not miss a beat with Brown. He was spectacular at South Carolina. He had six stops and a tackle for loss at the goal line that eventually caused a turnover on downs.
Why Brown decided to leave, we can only speculate. However, he is leaving UK on good terms.
Being a UK Wildcat was an honor and a privilege. I learned a lot about myself as well as the game of football. My time as a Wildcat has come to an end. But Im walking away a better athlete and better young man. UK will forever be in my heart. #bbn

Brown will have two years of eligibility remaining. Kentucky has three underclassmen who can fill his spot as Jones’ reserve — redshirt freshman Jamin Davis, early enrollee DeAndre Square and four-star signee Chris Oats.
Cole Mosier’s Jersey Retired
A walk-on that transformed into one of the best run blockers in the SEC has been honored by his high school. Walton-Verona retired Mosier’s No. 74 last night. Mosier’s final season at Kentucky ended before it even started. After spending the last eight months rehabbing his preseason ACL tear, Mosier plans on participating at next month’s Pro Day.
Kash the QB?
In high school he was the Tim Tebow of the mountains. We now have even more proof that Kash Daniel should take some snaps at quarterback.
I bet he could throw a football over them mountains.
Tyler Couch is Coming to UK
The son of the late, great Joey Couch has accepted an offer to be a preferred walk-on for Mark Stoops. The Paintsville lineman told Shawn Smith of Go Big Blue Country what it means to follow in his father’s footsteps.
“It means a whole lot to me to play at the same place as my dad. He wanted me to go to Kentucky and he would be very happy with my choice.”
Watch Terry Touchdown do work at Nutter and try not to get excited about football season. I dare you.
