Bookie Cobbins to sit out the rest of spring practice


Say it ain’t so, Bookie

Bad news for all you Bookie fans: the beloved wide receiver has fallen behind in his studies and will not participate in spring practice. Today, Joker said that Bookie “dug himself in a hole academically” and will spend the spring focusing on bringing his grades up instead. It’s another low blow for the wide receiving corps, who has faced some tough criticism thus far this spring.

Hopefully that doesn’t mean a hiatus from Twitter too. “Darryl Collins Tweet of the Week” doesn’t have the same ring to it.

    Paving the way for Petrino. Joker is really doing a great job of stinking in all areas.

    man the football team is going to be awful. U of L will decimate the cats. it hurts to say that but I have no reason to think otherwise. I dream of one day being able to see the cats be a real factor in the SEC but it doesnt seem like that will happen anytime soon. I hope they prove me wrong though. PLEASE, prove me wrong!!!

    Bobby Petrino would be an idiot to come to Kentucky!! He has way too much dignity and credibility to take that job…even after all this drama and getting fired. lol Barnhart only hires no name, worthless coaches for the football program. Expect a random middle school coach from somewhere in Delaware after Joker.

    Maybe they can pass out little pictures of Banner #8 for us to stare at when people walk into Commonwealth Stadium. That might make football feel better.

    My dad has said for years, “quit worrying about UK football. They’ve never had a team and never will and I’ve been following them for 40 years.” I thought it was funny for awhile but I’ve learned that he was right.

    We’re winning 3 games next season and I don’t even care.

    We just won #8 and it’s awesome. Whatever happens, 2012 is awesome.

    We still have a football team? Who cares!! Barnhart sure doesn’t or else he’d fire Joker’s a$$! Call should coach the bball and fball teams. He couldn’t do worse…and I bet we’d get better fball recruits.

    Please no more football posts. But don’t get me wrong, I still really like Joker as a person.

    10. Good point. Just keep going to games and having a good time (and bootlegging in some bourbon).

    That’s weird. Based on his tweets, I just assumed he was pulling A’s in English / literature classes.

    3. I admit I don’t follow UK football very closely, anymore. Why should I care about it when it seems like the University doesn’t care about it enough to find a good coach?.. But I haven’t heard anything about Joker’s “fling.” Can someone explain this please? And btw, I DO like Joker as a person. Seems like a good guy, plus he’s from UK, but after being the HC in waiting during Papaw’s tenure, you’d think we wouldn’t have had much of a drop off. Then again, he was horrible at calling plays when he was the OC and we won despite him, why would I think things would be different when he became the HC?

    Barnhart said he didn’t mind spending the money if need be to get a big name coach. He is going to have to come December. I’m rooting for Joker, but our wide outs are a joke, and they showed it last year. You cant win games if you can’t catch the ball. It shouldn’t be hard to recruit here, I mean how hard is it to sell starting time in the SEC?

    None of u all no crap about the football team so quit posting! Don’t be mad at joker for having team rules and making players sit out if they don’t meet the academic goals. If u think we only win 3 games this year your are ignorant and i gurantee the wideouts are tremendously better. Once we add this years recruiting class we will have some of the best athletes we have ever had!!!!!!!!!! No more negative posts gosh!! Ooooo and btw joker is the only coach to go to a bowl game in his first year at Kentucky!

    I have class with Bookie and he is always there and participates. The class is way harder than it should be. The last exam we took the class average (over 200 students) was a 62%. Its a 100 level course.
