Jalen Whitlow switching numbers to #2

whitlow-titantron

It looks like the deuce will be loose on offense AND defense. UK QB Jalen Whitlow tweeted this morning that he’ll be switching to the number two this season.

Defensive End Bud Dupree also wears number two, no word on if he’s switching too. I mean two. I mean too. Dangit.

    Apparently he’s resigned himself to the backup role

    Does anyone know why? Didn’t Shane Boyd have to change his number from 2 to 7 because he was a QB and UK didn’t want him wearing it because of Tim Couch? I really don’t care and am cool with another deuce being loose!!! Go cats!!

    Mrs. TT, players can have the same numbers on Offense and Defense, if you look at your new Media Guide their are over a dozen numbers that multiple people have. Just FYI, mb something for a post

    4. Barker wears 7 and I expect him to wear it at UK, Im guessing he may have given up 13 to a WR or someone. Or mb just wanted a change

    The strongest arm will get the nod. Don’t think that’s Jalen.

    Whitlow should be the starter… at least in my uneducated opinion. Which isn’t worth much.

    I just think a mobile QB is necessary behind that OL.

    Burn all the #13 jerseys and don’t let anyone wear it.
    That number is bad luck for our team.

    And #9 that’s way Jalen will be the started. The strongest in SEC

    I’m willing to bet Jalen will have the most impact of any QB in the country this season and next.

    13- if UK did they would still have 2/3 of it blocked off for advertisements.

    #9 – By that rational (and most opinions) Towles would be the starter. Apparently you don’t know the air raid too well. You need the most accurate arm, strength is at best a secondary consideration. Look at the Detmers, Dusty Bonner, Graham Harrell, Chase Daniel, Case Keenum, Nick Foles, etc. None of these guys had big arms but all set records. In fact only RG3 and maybe Geno Smith would be considered to have strong arms, I think at the end of the day the NFL proved that the #2 wasn’t the strongest arm by the highest standard.

    Max Smith was easily the most accurate but Jalen showed a lot of improvement in the spring and his escapability (see the list above) makes him an awfully tough out.

    I think Tao and the QB for Notre Dame both had the same # last year.

    Anybody know where I can find an updated roster with the new players #s? I know some players based on what they’ve tweeted (Timmons 1, Fogle (Barker’s HS teammate) 83, McWilson 15, etc)

    Where can I find the rest?
