University of Kentucky Basketball, Football, and Recruiting news brought to you in the most ridiculous manner possible.

Happy birthday, Tim Couch!

Today we celebrate the birthday of a UK football legend. Tim Couch turns the ripe old age of 38 today, but judging by recent pictures, he looks like he could still sling it around the field like he did 20 years ago.

When Jermaine Eskridge committed yesterday, many said he could be the most important UK Football recruit since Tim Couch. I don’t think UK football has ever been as exciting as the years Tim Couch and Hal Mumme ruled the roost, and watching him turned this UK basketball fan into a football one as well. My parents made me clean out my room at their house on a recent trip home, and I couldn’t bring myself to get rid of my old #2 Cleveland Browns jersey. In fact, I had to bring it back to Nashville with me.

In a neat moment, a fellow Eastern Kentucky boy wished Tim happy birthday on Twitter today:

Let’s relive Tim’s great game against Alabama in 1997 in his honor:

    Now that’s when football was fun at Kentucky!!!! If Stoops will step back and let Dawson have control of the offense we may just see it again!

      Yes, that meddling Defensive-minded coach who has hampered the UK offense so over the past two years.
