Matt Roark Officially Signs With The Patriots

In what may be the most impressive turnaround for any player in his senior season, Matt Roark has gone from the starting receiver who couldn’t seem to catch anything thrown his way to a signed NFL free agent. The Patriots officially announced the signings of seven undrafted free agents and Matt Roark was on the list. Roark only had one touchdown catch in his career at UK, but the combination of size and athleticism seemed too much to pass up. The 6’5 receiver will have a chance to rejoin Mike Hartline and Myron Pryor in Foxborough and play with what should be one of the best teams in the league next season.

    I remember when Matt Roark came in and I thought he had a lot of potential. He had lots of ups and downs but I always liked him. I thought he had the size and athleticism to give DB’s fits. He never did turn into that player for some reason. I hope he can get coached up finally and become the player I thought he would be.

    6- whaaaa? That’s a an actual magazine cover? No way. I don’t believe it. That 12 yr old kid is hanging on to his mom’s nipple by his teeth. I’ll be honest, that kinda shocks me and that’s coming from someone who masturbates to Animal Planet.

    How does this signing reflect on Joker’s coaching ability? Not very well in my opinion.

    How does a player who the NE Pats deem talented enough to PAY to play (albeit on the practice squad) not have any success to speak of under Joker’s tutelage?

    To me this says Joker isn’t even able to get players who possess professional level talent to produce under his system.

    Not good…

    See the stadium in that picture? That’s what out attendance will look like the whole season.

    Go Cats.

    Let me see what I can come up with to bash UK fans about over this.

    1 game = legend

    The only guy I can remember to do that as a wildcat in the past 40 years

    15)I don’t think anyone thinks of him as a legend but he will have a special place in UK football history because of that one game.The defense probably should have gotten the most credit for the win but Roarks story line was much more appealing.
