Louisville Ends Kentucky’s Hopes For a Bowl Game

The Governor’s Cup has been dominated by Louisville for the last four years. After a great first quarter start, the Cats fall to the Cards 44-40. The Cats never recovered after Louisville scored 21 points in the second quarter. Even four defensive turnovers didn’t help the Cats.

Patrick Towles struggled with only 146 yards and only 14 out of 28 completions. Stanley Williams lead the team with two touchdowns. The offense never really looked in sync and it was the defense that kept us in the game.

Louisville’s third string quarterback, Kyle Bolin, came in and basically won the game for the Cards. He threw for 381 yards and three touchdowns. Louisville wide receiver, Devante Parker had six receptions for 180 yards and three touchdowns.

There is always next year.

    “Never Recovered”????? They fought hard and “RECOVERED” enough to lead in the fourth quarter……

    I like Towles, but I am very tired of hearing how he “struggled” during a game. He had some good games this year, but doesn’t seem to read the field well at all. There doesn’t seem to be much ability to adjust to what the defense is offering. The four plays in that last series are a good example. Run out of the pocket and through it out of bounds; run it up the middle, run out of bounds, get intercepted on a fourth and 12 pass that had no chance at all of being caught by the cats.

    Perhaps our OC was too busy looking at houses on his I-Phone to call plays that last drive?

    There are two things that I am sick to death of concerning Kentucky football:

    – I am sick to death of players from opposing teams having career days against us.
    – I am sick to death of quarterbacks that throw the ball at the feet of their receivers.

    UK showed heart and guts, that’s worth noting and building on.

    Season ended on a sour note but progress was made. That’s important to keep in mind.

    The reality is the talent gap, especially on defense, between UK and other good programs is still large, it’s closing but there is still a wide gap.

    Patience is required like it or not. If you give Stoops time, especially with many of his current players gaining more experience he has a reasonable chance of turning this around.

    Remember what he was left with by “Joker.”

    And besides…in a month Cal and company will beat the snot out of Ricky P. and ultimately isn’t that more important?????

    it’s not all Towles fault, I do expect a QB battle going into next season. Play calling and Line play didn’t help, but I thought Towles looked nervous, accuracy, and decision making was off most of the game.

    Six game losing streak to end the season. Nuff said.
