Teddy Bridgewater teased Drew Barker about Kentucky

Louisville quarterback Teddy Bridgewater was a camp counselor at the Elite 11 quarterback camp last week, which featured UK quarterback commit Drew Barker. In a conversation with Steve Jones, Barker said Bridgewater teased him about picking Kentucky, but was complimentary of the new UK coaching staff.

Barker said, “He was just like, ‘Oh, you’re going to that school,’ and messing around. But he complimented the (UK) coaching staff and said he hopes we turn it around because it would be good for the state.”

Bridgewater is widely believed to be among the favorites for the Heisman trophy next season. He’ll meet Za’Darius Smith on September 14.

    Johnny Football & USC’s Clowney are the favorites. Bridgewater is not. But he is a serious contender.

    Why do we get so bent out of shape when someone has an opinion against UK? It isn’t really news.

    I was nearly decapitated 5 times against Florida and I still beat them easily. Why would I be afraid of Za’Darius Smith?

    7, I guess it’s all in your perception of reacting. I don’t call it bent out of shape to defend our school when it’s obvious a jab is thrown. Bent out of shape (to me) is like going on and on about it from one person. But a comment to a comment isn’t bent out of shape to me. It’s defending your school and not taking the one way insult.

    Teddy will be in the NFL by the time this happens; it’s going to be hilarious when the NCAA rules this kid ineligible, and they take away all of UL wins with him. It’s going to be funny when Strong get’s exposed finally having to play better teams, their recruiting falls apart with Hurrt gone, and the idiot UL fans realize they got shaken down & are on the hook for an extremely over paid coach. It’s going to be even funnier when That School & Stoops are dragging UL down the field.

    That’s about enough of this. You’ve already made me like Peyton and Gorgui, I can’t like Teddy too. Is Rick the last jerk at Louisville? What we need is someone to hate again. Where’s T-Will when you need him?

    I’m with #4. Sounds like he was just having fun with him. Seems innocent enough to me. It’s when the media gets it that it becomes distorted, or when people overanalyze it and make something out of nothing.

    Teddy wont be ruled ineligible. He’s actually a really good student and a serious leader. Im a cats fan but Bridgewater is an unbelievable talent and I love watching him play. He’s going to put up ridiculous numbers against UK this year.

    Bridgewater is the real deal and I don’t have any problems with anything he said in the above post. He also seems like a real good kid. I will be a fan of his in the NFL. That said, he was flat bought and paid for by Clint Hurtt and UL boosters and that is what the above commentor was talking about. Dirty coach and a dirty football program.

  22. PhilUK18

    Absolutely right. I find it hard to believe that a kid who, in his own words, “barely even heard of Louisville” before he got there, would go there without some kind of financial incentive.

    15) Agreed. You can hate UL without hating individuals. Teddy seems like a good kid and was obviously joking with Drew. Plus, he’s one of the most talented QBs in college.

    21 & 22 – I guess the same could be said for UKs sudden influx of talent. How does UK go from SEC bottom dweller to a top recruiting class. By your logic, they must of started paying players.

    Uh, no. Kentucky is in a completely different situation than Louisville. A lot of UK’s recent commits are from near Kentucky so they would be close to home, and the SEC is MUCH more prestigious than playing against Sister Mary’s School for Blind Orphans like Louisville does in conference.

  28. PhilUK18
    3:10 pm July 8, 2013 Permalink

    So, UK can offer immediate playing time in a great conference to talented recruits, many of whom would also be staying close to home. Far different from a barely relevant program in a terrible football conference suddenly getting a guy from nowhere near his home, in a city he admits he had barely heard of. Vastly different situations, you utter, utter moron.

    Hi, as soon as one of our coaches is tied to one of the largest recruiting scandals in recent college football – with said recruit involved in some fashion – we can make the comparison between UK and UL football recruiting. Until then, the facts are UL employed a dirty football coach who personally established the Miami pipeline for UL and brought in an influx of unusual talent. Personally, I don’t really even care. I am just sick of the righteous indignation from moronic UL fans about UK bsaketball and football recruiting.

    #29… Clearly you do care… seeing as how you had one of the longer comments for this post. Anyways, who gives a shit, two totally different programs who play each other once a year.

    Oh and some of their latest recruits have still been from Florida even without a significant presence from Hurtt. Keep in mind, the head coach came from a good deal of time as a Gator.

    Bridgewater is a nice player. For Louisville to BE anything this year he must stay healthy.

    On second thought, with their sad excuse for a schedule they actually may not have to depend on him that much.

    But he is very, very good.

    #17 Yea I’m retarded; the NCAA already has him illegally in the Miami boosters suite at the Dolphins game, being taken to the boosters house by Hurtt, and at least 3 illegal contacts when he was taken to restaurants with both Miami coaching staffs. They will pull a Derek Rose on Teddy mainly because unlike Rose they have evidence on Teddy.

    Teddy a good player, but since UL plays no one, he has a snow balls chance in hell of winning the Heisman. UL could beat everyone by 100 points, never going to happen. And for a national championship game; UL fans need to get over themselves because no ESPN ex is going to put UL in a National Championship game in football because they can’t sell it nationally; no one outside the city limits of Louisville cares about UL. Teddy should have gone to LSU.

    Overrated? The only people who disagree with you are every NFL scout, every NFL GM and every NFL draft forecaster, but I am sure they do not understand football as well as you.

    You will see how “overrated” he is (as well as that overrated DeVante Parker) this fall when Teddy throws for 400+ yards against UK.

    Teddy Bridgewater was “involved” in the recruiting scandal @ Miami in that he was taken to a booster’s home, where he accepted nothing, and did not commit to the school said booster represented. Clint Hurtt & Co. became part of the Shapiro money-culture in Miami, but it’s not like it was Hurtt’s money; and it’s not like Teddy accepted a penny of it. Bridgewater came to Louisville because he got a phone call from a head coach who won two national titles as a defensive coordinator in the SEC, plain and simple.

    Again an example of the idiotic UK fans and KSR. Every school has fans that are fools all of the even Louisville. But UK fans take the cake. A bunch of guys that have never played and have no knowledge of competition and good natured ribbing.Barker should keep his mouth shut and not get caught up in all this hype.He needs to cut his twitter off and just play ball till signing day ad not give you idiots any fodder.

    48…Bridgewater did commit to UM and decommitted when Randy Shannon was fired. Also we have know idea if he took anything. All the recruits that were involved and ended up not attending UM were given amnesty when they provide information to the NCAA.

    Yes, the NCAA investigation into Miami has Clint Hurtt dead to rights… oh, all except for that part where their investigators broke the law and intimidated witnesses into lying. Oh delusional BBN, never change.

    It is pretty funny that a school that has been on probation multiple times in both football and basketball like calling other programs dirty! By the logic on this thread Coach Cal should be under a show cause because his last two programs had to vacate wins under his watch. Let me guess this is completely different. Please try to make intelligent comments.
