UK Fans of the Day Want A Scrimmage Tidbit


We are here in Cincy winding down at the ATP Tennis event, but big things went down in Lexington today. There was of course a scrimmage, the notes of which are below. A KSR spy however tell us that Jalen Whitlow and Reese Phillips were by far the two best Quarterbacks at play during the game and that four interceptions were thrown by the duo of Max Smith and Patrick Towles. Conventional wisdom has remained that Whitlow is the favorite to win the job, and one would think this remains the case…but only time will tell. Certainly today was a positive step for Whitlow in that process.

If you get a chance, help the KSR boys out by visitingour Tennis Channel Blog “The Outer Courts” at some point this weekend. The writing is in KSR style and if even if you don’t like tennis, I guarantee you will find things at which to laugh. With that, a picture to finish this early Saturday evening. It showcases the randomness of the BBN as a UK fan was traveling in Costa Rica, got in a cab, and the driver was wearing a UK Football shirt. We knew UK basketball spreads the globe, but now Stoops has the nation of rich coasts on board as well:

    Whitlow will be our guy. I like what I am hearing about Phillips too.

    I am still a believer in Towles but if he can’t be the guy then its lookng like he might be a 4th string qb or transfer.

    Stoops needs to name a starter now to allow enough time for Smith or Towels to transfer

    A buddy of mine who is a UL fan went to Jamaica; the captain of a boat they took out was wearing a UK hat. His response was damn UK fans are everywhere.

    The girl on the top right, my goodness.

    Can Towles still redshirt? If so, I’d say this is where he’s headed – and/or a change of position.

    With Barker coming in next year and Whitlow just a Soph. I can’t see when Towles “time” will be as UK’s QB. Barker could/should (?) redshirt next year (Phillips as back-up) and then challenge Whitlow for the #1 spot the following year. I just don’t see Towles fitting in at QB.

    I know he’s pretty athletic, could he switch to TE? Put a shirt on him this year and give him a year to learn the position.

    Looks like its time for Patrick to throw in the Towles. Maybe he can play for Bobby P at WKU for a year before Petrino moves on?

    People who continue to call for towles need to wake up. The best QB is whitlow. He played in Alabama where there is top talent. Towles didn’t even play in 6A in Kentucky. Get over it! The “Kentucky Boy” ain’t starting.

    #4 I agree. Haven’t been able to think of much else today. Incredibly tragic.

    You guys need to make a site. You have enough fans of the day to make a killing. Call Hubby. You’re welcome.

    10 – Andre woodson went to North Hardin, he did pretty well for us. Plus Towles went to Highlands. Do you know who else went to highlands? Jared Lorenzen.

    Your argument is stupid and invalid.
