Who wants to own a Compass Bowl jersey?

derrick-locke-jersey-for-sale

That’s right, he said no chump change.  Looks like you’re out of the bidding, KSR staff.  For the rest of you, don’t come with anything other than the right money.  And, for you, Derrick, keep in mind that if you can get $25 for your jersey, you can open a basic checking account with BBVA.

    I’m guessin Derrick Locke was the one who pressed the “like” button on his last last Facebook comment.

    Can you say NCAA violation? Guess not since he is a senior, but still gotta make your butt cheeks clinch a little if you are a UK fan.

    Pryor from OSU pushed the like button.

    I love the guy cause he wore the blue and white, but if I want an autographed jersey, I want it from a running back who is willing to lower his shoulders and run over someone to get an extra 3-4 yards instead of running straight to the sidelines. He’s fast, but that’s about it. I’d be selling my jersey from that bowl too, embarrassing.

    3. Um, no. Not in any way whatsoever. Locke is no longer at UK.

    It hurts me to say because how much Locke helped us these past years, but he is the EXACT kind of player that UK needs the heck out of Lexington. Locke has always had his eyes on the NFL and been more worried about avoiding injury than getting a win. Good riddance.

    Locke was a good player but glad his attitude is gone. Maybe he and Pryor can work out a deal for each others memorabilia. Better yet the 2 of them can put up a jersey each for matching heart tattoos.

    #8 you are nuts. locke has NOT always had his eye on the nfl. just a small history lesson for you because you apparently forgot already. locke came to UK on a track scholarship. he had his eye on earning a walk-on spot on the football team. and you are a true moron if you think we don’t need players like him. unless you have something against fast and talented players

    19) Cuz dey sum bitches.

    But with the way the NCAA enforces its rules, I smell a violation being leveled at UK for not controlling Locke.

    3) It’s still a violation. The fact that he’s a senior just means they can’t suspend him.

    You would think he would want to cherish all of his UK bowl game jerseys since we were the only Divison 1 school to give him a scholarship…….

    If I were a UL fan I would be trying to get all the recruits to come read this garbage. Locke helped us to some huge wins in his career and all this hate is coming out. It’s almost to the point where it’s embarrasing to be a UK fan. A kid comes and gives us four years and a bunch of idiots hate on him.

    I’ll trade him an autographed football by Hal Mumme & Claude Bassett for it.

    As to rather it’s a violation I say no. Locke has used all of his eligilibility up so he is no longer an NCAA athlete. He can never be an ameteur again, in the NCAA’s eyes, so what can they do? Now if you were a senior at Duke and you stomped the crap out of another player while he laid defenseless on the floor, well you could probably get some extra eligibility.

    Who would buy a jersey from that game?
    I mean, one program is transitioning from the top to the bottom of its conference and the other is Kentucky.

    I’m not hating on Locke… if he really thinks that jersey is worth money he needs to be told that its not.

    If he is happy with going to a BBVA game… I am disappointed

    Thats right Kentucky. Keep spreading all of your “Love” for your program. “Using UK jerseys as cleaning rags” Paying “$20 just to throw a UK Jersey away” Badmouthing an athlete that came and stayed four years. Keep it up, I’m having a field day posting these remarks to the facebook pages of recruits that you all want. You stupid fans are the reason your football team will never take the next step. Keep talking bad about them and keep booing them at home games. Vanderbilt will be beating you butt next year.

    Sometimes UK fans really do suck. This is one of those times. Locke was a great player, and I wish him nothing but the best. I don’t know why he would want to keep a jersey from that crappy bowl, either.

    At first, I was like ‘wtf, Derrick’.

    But now…I can’t help but think ‘who in their right mind would want to have a keepsake that reminds them of that god-awful tragedy of a bowl game?’

    Not me, Derrick Locke deserves to wipe that memory clean and make some cash while he is at it. Maybe

    I’m not going to hate on Locke, but if we get any kind of violation for this I am going to be pissed.

    29) how funny is it that we spank you repeatedly at both football and basketball? Hilarious.

    29. You guys don’t make fun of your team because we do it for you. When I had Locke as a friend on Facebook he would be cussing like every other word and would dog the fans sometimes, I got tired of hearing him complaining and cussing.

    33. The football part of that is going to change immediately and I think you all know that. You all complain about your players and dog them on a public board and then think that recruits wont care. Don’t know much about Locke, but I am pretty sure he has helped yoor program for four years. I think he was a big reason you all beat LSU when they were number 1. And yet you all want to throw his jersey away and use it as a cleaning rag. And of course the whole country knows how you all boo your team when they don’t meet your expectations.

    Seriously guys, we’re gonna shower Locke with this much hate? The guy stuck around for four years, played through a lot of pain, and was a hell of a player. I think he deserves better.

    No need to hate on Locke. Kid played for UK and helped us out a lot. Sad to say but I doubt he will be an NFL RB.

    ULFAN…we have heard that it’s going to change for 4 years now in football and going on 2 in basketball. atleast you all have softball, volleyball and baseball though. have fun TROLLING KSR because not only do your major sports teams suck, but so do your fan blogs!

    WOW, 6-7, nobody showed up for UK in that game and now this. Football team has class written over it nowadays. Maybe Cobb can blast the fans for not paying enough for the losing teams jersey or bailing Hartline out earlier. Lets raise ticket prices again!!! And for all the football team/Cobb apologists out there I still hope they do great, but the truth hurt. Now defend them…..

    Hey ULFAN- How long do you honestly think Charlie Strong will stay at UL? Yes he will get great recruiting classes for 2 years but he wont be around long enough to see them graduate. No matter what you want to believe about your football program, it is only a stepping stone coaches use to go somewhere else. You wont beat UK next year but maybe in 2 you will. After that though, back to middle of the pack in the Big East and losing to Joker every year.

    Locke is not getting bashed… everyone knows how great he was. Would you rather buy his jersey or Stevie Johnson’s?

    UofL fan, you run with the most fairweather fanbase I have ever seen maybe you should run and tell that to recruits homeboy

    Locke had a great career but there’s no doubt his attitude has not been the best. For the past year, more of his facebook statuses have had to do with “getting nfl money” than winning football games for the University of Kentucky.

    Once a Cat, Always a Cat; I’ll root for him in the League bc he was a Wildcat, but you gotta hope that the young RB’s don’t emulate his attitude.

    He was a good player, did alot for UK. I don’t have to like him as a person, he’s came across like a punk in alot of ways. Folks are ripping him for trying to sell a jersey from a horrible horrible bowl, which said team put up a horrible horrible game.

    Would you want to buy a t-shirt from the guy that finished 2nd (i won’t call them a loser) in last year’s marathon?
