Lynn Bowden Refuses to say Virginia Tech’s Name

Kentucky’s wide receiver-turned-quarterback is out to make a statement in his final game, thanks to a few statements made by the Virginia Tech Hokies at a pre-Belk Bowl activity.

The incident between Bowden and a few Virginia Tech players at the Charlotte Motor Speedway was captured on video. At Monday morning’s Belk Bowl media day, Bowden did not add to the trash-talk, simply saying over and over, “I’m not talking about them.” Bowden would not deviate from the script. According to Kyle Tucker, those orders came from the head coach.

“Mark Stoops apparently told his team to stand down, stay composed, let it gnaw at them for a couple days, and ‘kick their ass on the field,'” Tucker reported.

To keep his composure, Bowden gave the Hokies the Louisville treatment. Before the Governor’s Cup, the Cards were simply known as “The Red Team” or “the team from down the road.” Virginia Tech didn’t even get that much from Bowden. Below you’ll hear him not say Virginia Tech’s name more than a handful of times.

Playing the disrespect card, Bowden believes a win will help silence the critics.

To wrap up Belk Bowl media day, Mark Stoops and Justin Fuente posed for a picture behind the trophy. When the players were asked if they wanted a picture with the trophy, Bowden and Co. declined the opportunity. “Not until we win,” he said.

    When are opposing players and coaches going to learn to stop running their mouths about us? Maybe tomorrow.

    We have a wrecking ball offense, I would think the last thing you want to do is piss off a wrecking ball offense.
