University of Kentucky Basketball, Football, and Recruiting news brought to you in the most ridiculous manner possible.

BTI’s Rants and Ramblings: Who is your all-time favorite UK Football Player?

You know what is kinda funny?  I was sitting here thinking about what to write this morning, and I realized that KSR has done a lot of polls over our history.  Favorite UK Basketball Player, Favorite UK moment, Favorite UK coach, Moments you would change, etc.  But we have never asked the most simple of UK football questions:

WHO IS YOUR ALL-TIME FAVORITE UK FOOTBALL PLAYER? 

I would think that Tim Couch would the favorite for this contest, especially for the younger generation.  But hell, Couch hasn’t played for UK in over a decade so maybe Andre Woodson would be a serious contender.  Craig Yeast, Jared Lorenzen, Mo Williams, Wesley Woodyard, Randall Cobb.  All these guys have legit arguments for them.  In basketball, it usually revolves around a couple guys: Delk, Mashburn, Prince, Patterson, Walker.  You will see the same names over and over.  I think with this poll, you will see a wide variety of names, both offense and defense.  It’s one of the actual positives from not being an elite program, and that is fans tend to latch onto different players for different reasons.  Maybe you like attitude and energy more.  Maybe you like athleticism.  Maybe you just like the quarterbacks.  Whatever the case, there are lots of options to choose from.   

My answer would be Randall Cobb.  He is the only player that I can remember in UK history that I thought could be a touchdown every time he touched the ball.  He was must see television.  He is the only skill player I can remember having that feeling about.  And frankly, last season he was the lone bright spot on the team. 

But, who would be yours.  Put your answer in the comments section and I will total up the votes and release them tomorrow.

    The “Hefty Lefty”. The “Pilsbury Throwboy”. The “Round Mound of Touchdown”. It has to be Jared Lorenzen!

    Randall Cobb for sure he has been the heart and sole of this team the past couple of years, and really gave everything he had for the big blue!!!!

    Loved Woodyard and Sned on defense. Williams was the most fun runner I have seen for the Cats. But, Cobb did so much for the program, I have to say Cobb. Listening to the current players and young freshmen, it is clear Cobb was actively involved in influencing others to be their best. I would not be surprised to see him coach some day after his NFL career is over. Cobb gets my vote. BTW, no offense to J-Lo, but he does not belong on the list.

    I could never call a guy who left early my favorite Cat of all-time. Just something seems wrong with it. I understand they have to go when the time is best for them, but something is to be said about staying all four years. That said, my favorite Cat of all-time is by far Jacob Tamme.

    “He is the only player that I can remember in UK history that I thought could be a touchdown every time he touched the ball.” — If that is the standard, I agree that Cobb is on the list, but I would add Mark Higgs. He ran for two long touchdowns the first few times he touched the ball, and there was never a run after that when you didn’t think he could go all the way.

    Dermontti Dawson, local, great NFL career on top of his college career, NFL HOF. Can’t say much more than that. Also got to send some love to Glenn Pakulak; he was crazy (especially for being a kicker). I remember times he would charge down field after he punted and lay somebody out. During the years of crappy punt coverage, I think he was our leading tackle on special teams.

    I am going to take the easy way and say Tim Couch. I want to say Artose Pinner or Craig Yeast, I also really liked Anthony White and Kio Sanford on the Mumme teams, and Cobb was a stud. However, when Tim Couch was in the shotgun for Mumme that was appointment television for UK football more so than any other time in my life, I know that.

    Has everyone forgotten that when Kentucky started making it too, and winning bowl games it was Andre Woodson that was at the helm of the offense? Yeah he had Tamme and Stevie and Burton to throw too but he had more success in a Kentucky uniform in terms of wins than even Tim Couch. Not to mention he set the NCAA record for most pass attempts without and INT, beat the #1 and eventual national champion LSU Tigers, and began this whole tradition of kicking Louisville’s butt every year.

    Has to me Woodson for me.

    And I feel the most underappreciated, Artose Pinner. One of the best RBs the school has seen. Led team to a bowl eligible record his senior year, but sadly was overshadowed by being bowl ineligible. Broken leg in the Senior Bowl derailed future NFL hopes.

    As the program has evolved different players come to mind… as a kid in the 70’s it was Mike Siganos (never called a fair catch). Mark Higgs in the 80’s. Couch in the 90’s but Dusty Bonner probably would have been if Mumme would have kept him over Jlo(tough to follow Couch). Tamme and Cobb to round it off. Overall though… Never be anyone like The Legend.

    I love me some Derek Abney and I am confident enough in my man hood to say it. Dude could flat out return a punt or kickoff. He might not have been the best to play at UK but he was one of the most exciting and like Cobb could produce a big play at anytime.
