Bud Dupree Swears Success Next Season

 

Kentucky sophomore starting linebacker Alvin “Bud” Dupree had a lot on his mind after UK’s embarrassing 40-0 loss at home to Vanderbilt this afternoon. One can only imagine how a player has to feel when he walks out to find his stadium three-fourths empty and his own fans booing the team’s performance. Of course, it is hard to blame Big Blue Nation for losing faith in UK football at this point, but it’s too bad that such poor support from such a large fan base  affects the kids on the sideline who are just trying to suit up, play hard, and represent their school.

After the game today, Dupree tweeted a statement to his fans vowing to perform better next season.

To be fair to Bud, he quickly corrected his typo and changed “want” to “won’t” in another tweet. I hate it when my typos get quoted, so I think that’s worth mentioning. Either way, the point stands, and even if it’s just empty talk from a disgruntled player, it’s nice to see that these young guys have some fight left in them. They want to improve.

That tweet was followed up by this one…

Keep fighting, guys. It’s no secret that this football season has been less than successful. Hell, it’s been dismal. But between Towles’ mature remarks about not regretting giving up his red shirt, Maxwell Smith’s encouraging tweets to his team even after injury kept him on the sideline, and Dupree’s oath to give fans more to cheer for next season, you have to love the maturity the players show in responding to adversity. As Dupree said earlier this week, “We just want to win.” It’s clear that the Cats are having trouble doing so, but the desire is there. As long as I see guys like this suiting up in blue, I’ll continue to suffer through wind, rain, and miserable losses to show support.

Cats.

    F you and Mitch

    Play me a sad song the fans are not coming due to the admin and Mitch not the kids. Mitch is a f u c k ing p u ss y and is like some third world dictator who hides with in crowd of civilians so his enemies don’t fire
    Mitch is hiding in the players in the same way

    He didn’t tweet the whole thing again…just “***won’t.” And then a couple other tweets begging people not to misunderstand him.

    What the hell else would you expect him to say? We will lose all of our games next year. It can’t get much worse.

    No offense to the players…yes offense to the coaches (HC,OC,DC) but it couldn’t get much worse.

    i think it’s pretty obvious from mitch’s comments after the game that joker will definitely be back next year. stupid fans must have ‘personal agendas’ against joker

    I really feel for the players. Hopefully next year they’ll have a coach that can help them improve

    I’d like to help you Bud, but I’ve got soccer and softball complexes to build.

    These players deserve to be playing for Petrino. He’ll reward their hard work with wins.

    Maybe they should replace football practice with spelling/grammar practice. Not to be rude but this guy passed college English…

    I interpret this as Bud (and probably the rest of the team and staff) as giving up on this year. Already looking towards next year.

    I believe in you and your team, Bud (just not the coaches)!

    I agree with Dupree…as long as someone like John Chavis is coaching him.

    When will Cal start using words like “Dis” and “Da” – I mean it’s hip and the kids like it.

    Heck – maybe he’ll start using the N-word too! Give him that instant street cred!
