Moments after Josh Allen’s name was called on draft night, before he even shook Roger Goodell’s hand on the draft stage, ESPN’s Booger McFarland threw the UK coaching staff under the bus.
As McFarland was giving his two cents on Allen as the seventh overall pick, he said, “He definitely can be elite and I look forward to him getting better coaching. Right now he is winning off of pure athletic ability.”
The hell, Booger?
McFarland has been very supportive of Mark Stoops in the past, so it was an odd comment to make during an enormous moment for the Kentucky football program.
