Eye Can’t Believe This

The joke about Kentucky wide receivers catching passes is getting old, but can they just catch a break?

After breaking his fibula at the end of spring practice,sophomore wide receiver Jeff Badet will have to wait longer to receive clearance to play after being hit in the eye with a tennis ball during a catching drill.  Stoops said he won’t be reevaluated for another week.

It’s sad to say, but this isn’t the first time something like this has happened.

If you’ll recall, before the Alabama State game last season Javess Blue was forced to sit out after a pass slipped through his fingertips into his eye during pregame warm-ups.  This has officially happened one too many times.

    It’s obvious the moron doesn’t know how to focus, concentrate. No wonder UK sucks in football – can’t find anyone who is willing to be serious about the game. My prediction for the season will be 2-10 for the third year in a row. Now you see why UK can’t beat anyone who is anything in football – they fail to focus.

    Wonder if it’s easy to catch a tennis ball than a football?
    Can you get us a video of this drill?
    Maybe they could use nerf balls next time
    Makes you feel all warm and fuzzy who injuries like this put our troops in peril.

    There is a really good article on in the College Football Preview of Sports Illustrated on my hire: Bobby Petrino.

    Welp: He’s a changed man. Did you hear that?

    Easy Rider is a changed man.

    He’ll still bust your ash (and volleyball gals).

    But he’s mine now! Again.!!!

    It has been serious work eradicating 50+ years in little bro conferences.

    That’s usually what happens when you don’t catch something…it hits you in the face…here’s an idea…CATCH THE DAMN BALL!!!

    The jokes about UK wide receivers catching the ball just got stuck. Time to prove things have changed on the field. That type of ridicule might make them determined to actually do something to change that stigma, right?
