Jared Lorenzen to be inducted into Hall of Fame tomorrow

We are very excited for our good friend and colleague Jared Lorenzen as he goes into the UK Athletics Hall of Fame this weekend. Jared is Kentucky’s all-time leading passer and an even better guy in the real life human world. I can’t think of anyone as universally loved as him around the football program. Standup guy and a MOGUL in the t-shirt business.

Here are some of his many accomplishments on the field, via UK Athletics:

Set six NCAA records, four SEC records and 11 school records for passing and total offense … Four-year starter at quarterback … Career totals feature 862 completions in 1,514 attempts for 10,354 yards and 78 touchdowns … Added 12 rushing touchdowns during his career … Two-year semifinalist for the Davey O’Brien National Quarterback Award … Named second-team All-SEC by both the Associated Press and the Coaches … SEC Co-Freshman of the Year in 2000 … Team captain as a junior and senior … National Player of the Week against Vanderbilt in 2001 … Played three years in the NFL with the New York Giants and was a member of the Giants’ 2008 Super Bowl champion team.

Tonight he’ll eat dinner with the other six inductees in the new UK recruiting room before the big day tomorrow. He’s supposed to be at a Hall of Fame tailgate before tomorrow’s game, but he’s skipping it to do the KSR pregame show. And that’s one of the many, many reasons why we love him.

So congrats to Jared on the honor. We’ll see ya at Commonwealth tomorrow around 3 pm for the show.

    I notice y’all have turned off the comments on the “Kentucky Branded”
    adverts that are being posted on KSR. Bad marketing move. What we who
    would buy the items think of the items, is an important piece of information.
    Marketing companies pay big money to find out what people think of things,
    but no, KSR shuts out what we think.

    I love KSR, Matt, and everything y’all do for the BBN fanbase.

    The Kentucky Branded store is useless to a large percent of the BBN fans.
    Pun totally intended. I come from a family where most of us are over 6 feet
    tall, and we are BIG people. Size “XXL” fits tight and uncomfortably on
    most of us. Therefore, until KSR and Kentucky Branded start carrying
    larger sizes, as much as we’d love to support the show by buying Kentucky
    Branded KSR merch, we can’t. Nothing fits. The Big Blue cash is burning
    holes in our pockets, so off we go to places like Wildcats Wearhouse, JD Becker,
    Football Fanatics and the official UK Athletics site.

    Your loss, KSR. We’re counting on your being $marter than this in the future!!!!!!!

    1) Congratulations Jared, well deserved.
    2) I really don’t get you people making fun of Jared’s weight. I assume you must be the perfect weight, have a six pack even, and of course you are quite good looking and have accomplished many of your life goals through skill, hard work and determination. SMH

    Congrats Jared! You put up big numbers while you were at UK. You fought hard man! Ignore these immature brats that got to make fun of someone’s weight. Hopefully they will grow up one day. Well deserved #22!
