Lynn Bowden explains why he doesn’t like Louisville

Lynn Bowden has never been shy about his disdain for the University of Louisville’s football program. He has been spotted throwing the occasional L’s down, like people do, and even refused to acknowledge the word “Louisville” during an interview on national television.

So when Bowden hopped on Kentucky Sports Radio to discuss his three-year career at UK, he was asked to explain how his animosity toward Louisville grew to what it is today.

It’s a subject he was happy to address.

“My freshman year, Lamar came here and he did what he did,” Bowden told KSR. “After that, I just felt disrespected. You don’t just come here and do that. I think they thought the rain was just going to keep coming — no, it’s not; it’s not going to be like that.

“I wish I would’ve played (quarterback) against them my sophomore year because it would’ve been the same result,” he added. “We went down there and whooped them in front of all they fans. I just don’t like that team.”

Bowden called Louisville’s players cocky, but wouldn’t accept that same label on himself.

“I’m not cocky, I’m confident,” he explained. “It’s different. It’s different because cocky, you’re going to talk your things and sometimes you might not back it up. I’m confident. I know I’m going to back it up.”

This seems like as good a time as any to rewatch Bowden’s highlights from his most recent win over Louisville. You know, when he backed up his confidence with 284 yards rushing for four touchdowns.

    Those red fans: “Kentucky players are trash for doing L’s down”
    Nevermind Pitino flipping our fans off, Pitinos 50 sex scandals at the red place, Petrino and his scandals, papa John, taunting Miami every time they scored, Katina, ect. Their fanbase is the laughingstock of collegiate sports. They should’ve already recieved a death penalty for the ridiculous amount of stupid happening at their basketball program a-la Rick, Katina, and Bowen.
