Josh Clemons will likely redshirt

Josh Clemons isn’t rebounding from knee surgery the way Joker Phillips and his staff had hoped. The Cats are now almost four games into the season and it’s unclear when the sophomore running back will be ready to see playing time in the backfield.¬†Joker told the media today that¬†Clemons will likely redshirt this season as he continues to recover from that injury he suffered last season against South Carolina.

A redshirt would mean three full seasons of Clemonade, but we’ll have to wait until 2013 to see him.

    Guess he won’t be playing for Joker.

    So Ryan is always talking about how he’s not a “bulky SEC back” like our new starter. But dang if he don’t look huge there.

    If he transfers now, he may not have to sit out the year!

    Shows the difference between Joker and Billy Clyde. While Billy forced Jasper to play on a bad knee for Billy’s own selfish reasons, Joker is doing the right think and letting Clemons redshirt, even though he desperately needs him to play. Good move from Joker. Irrespective of the coach, we will be better next year.

    If he were smart he’d use that time off to transfer also.

    Why would you ever wish a kid to transfer away from the program? Ignorant.

    this could be his chance to transfer, but man I want to see him in a Wildcat Uniform, he has huge potential, Mark Ingram?

    Looking forward to seeing him here next year. He could transfer but why, He will be the starter next year (the dude looks like a damn NFL LB) regardless of who has the starting job right now. I hope Joker can put himself in a position to take advantage of this redshirt next year. You probably won’t even need to block for this dude.

    Regardless of your feelings about the football program as a whole, for you to say that he should transfer means you need to re-examine your Kentucky fan status. I’m ashamed of where we are as a program, but more than half of that shame is based on our fanbase.

    Yes he looks like the Terminator but I think your alls expectations for him are extremely too high.

    I hope he hangs around, but the temptation may be strong for him to look elsewhere. I guess that will be another good excuse for Joker to use for the upcoming 2-9 season.

    I have never understood the hype around this kid.
    Let me also say i understand the following two points.

    -He is muscular

    -He had a long run against a FCS opponent.

    Now, what else am I missing?

    It’s hard to say where the hype came from. It’s also not fair to get down on a guy until he has had a full season.

    By the way, is Glenn Faulkner going to get to play this season?

    We just don’t know the full story on Clemons. He ran behind a makeshift offensive line, maybe one of the worst in major college ball for 4 games last season. that’s all we know. he showed some promise, but we don’t know how good he is or can be.

    IF he is smart he WILL transfer to UL next year.

    #18 = troll. Why would he want to transfer to UL? Chawley is going to be moving on to Arkansas next year after John L gets the boot. UL will be in scramble mode again. Also, why play in a conference that is falling to pieces?

    Is a redshirt the same as a transfer?

    Anybody that comes here for football news is like someone that reads the nutrition facts at McDonalds. KSR had their noses so far up the behinds of the basketball program they know little if nothing about true football news. Clemmons isn’t going anywhere except to rehab his knee and hopefully next season he will be 100% and ready to excel for his new coaching staff!
