Photo Gallery: Players report for fall camp


The football team had until 2:45 pm to get checked in for the start of fall camp today, and I stopped by the new facility to watch some of the Wildcats sign in to begin the preseason practice process.

Below you’ll find a few photos from the afternoon, including this one of Boom Williams’ tank-top:

    Question we all need to ask ourselves: If Freddie thought a coach at UK was not very good, would he be willing / able to say so? My gut answer is No.

      I think Freddie is the most honest (about criticism) of the bloggers on the site. But even he needs to somewhat stay on the staff’s good side. So he has to balance the criticism with being able to have access.

      I have heard ( and agreed with) Freddie critizing the running back rotation that Chad Scott had last year and of course with Dawson’s play calling last year. The thing most fans don’t realize is there is only so much criticism you can give a coach. You have to come to a point to where it’s down to the fact that the players just aren’t as good as we would like them to be.

    I think Boom is a fake. He clearly has maturity / dependability issues. I just don’t think he’s a guy we can count on.

    Johnson should start at QB. We can’t compete without a QB that can run.

      I bet he is starting by mid-season. He was really impressive in Spring. I hope I’m wrong.

      False. The kid isn’t a very good passer and teams will just load the box and tee off on him and the running backs. Drew is the guy. If something does happen and a QB change is made I wouldn’t be surprise if Gunnar isn’t called upon if they don’t want to redshirt him but I think they are desperate enough to try anything because they have to win this year. Now I do think Johnson’s passing can improve and he could be the guy.

      Nope, Johnson is as good as a passer as Barker and isn’t immature like Barker is. Also, Look at teams that have won in the SEC other than Alabama / LSU / Georgia. They almost always have a running QB. You have to be able to keep defenses on their toes without having superior athletes. Drew isn’t the answer.

    All you negative posters kill me. Can’t you asshats be positive? I get that the Football program has been struggling for decades. I get that coach Stoops has yet to have a breakthrough season. I’ll be honest. He may NEVER have one! I hope he does. I happen to like the man. I think he wants to be successful and is dong everything he can to get there. One thing is for sure. Posting stupid negative comments won’t help us get over the hump. All that does is make the fanbase look foolish and unsupportive.

      So let’s keep cheering poor performance so that Barnhart never has a reason to spend money to make a better on-field product. I’m sure that will work.

      In your post you pointed out multiple reasons not to be positive and then got mad at “negative posters”. That didn’t make a lot of sense.

      I hope that this is the year that UK football goes back to a bowl game. I desperately want something to be positive about. But I’m not going to stick my head up my a$$ and say “nothing wrong here” while the house is burning down around me. Sorry.

      So true, but just realize that 999 and inside are loserville trolls, Johnson didn’t look that good to me in spring practice and he is a runner only. Defense will just load the box with him, hoping Drew lives up to the promise of a SEC QB. Hoak has a bright future, but you don’t play a kid in the SEC, unless he is ready and he is not. Johnson was brought in as last resort since we had so many QB’s leave at the end of the last season.

      I just don’t think we can trust a QB who was handed the keys without having to earn it. He has acted foolishly since he got on campus and hasn’t proved anything on the field, yet Stoops seems desperate for him to start. I don’t get it.

      What’s to like? He’s arrogant, abrasive, evasive, blame shifting, and incompetent.

    Day um.

    All right stop.

    QB #1 look like muh boi: Robert Matthew Van Winkle.

    Cheers to him re-habbin the house; & Nads gettin’ it done:

    Ice ice baby
    Ice ice baby
    All right stop
    Collaborate and listen
    Ice is back with my brand new invention
    Something grabs a hold of me tightly
    Then I flow that a harpoon daily and nightly
    Will it ever stop?
    Yo, I don’t know
    Turn off the lights and I’ll glow
    To the extreme I rock a mic like a vandal
    Light up a stage and wax a chump like a candle

    Bum rush the speaker that booms
    I’m killin’ your brain like a poisonous mushroom
    Deadly, when I play a dope melody
    Anything less that the best is a felony
    Love it or leave it
    You better gain way
    You better hit bull’s eye
    The kid don’t play
    If there was a problem
    Yo, I’ll solve it
    Check out the hook while my DJ revolves it

    Ice ice baby Vanilla
    Ice ice baby Vanilla
    Ice ice baby Vanilla

    Now that the party is jumping
    With the bass kicked in, the fingers are pumpin’
    Quick to the point, to the point no faking
    I’m cooking MC’s like a pound of bacon
    Burning them if they’re not quick and nimble
    I go crazy when I hear a cymbal
    And a hi hat with a souped up tempo
    I’m on a roll and it’s time to go solo
    Rollin in my 5.0
    With my ragtop down so my hair can blow
    The girlies on standby
    Waving just to say hi
    Did you stop?
    No, I just drove by
    Kept on pursuing to the next stop
    I busted a left and I’m heading to the next block
    That block was dead

    Yo so I continued to a1a Beachfront Ave
    Girls were hot wearing less than bikinis
    Rock man lovers driving Lamborghini
    Jealous ’cause I’m out getting mine
    Shay with a gauge and Vanilla with a nine
    Ready for the chumps on the wall
    The chumps are acting ill because they’re so full of eight balls
    Gunshots ranged out like a bell
    I grabbed my nine
    All I heard were shells
    Fallin’ on the concrete real fast
    Jumped in my car, slammed on the gas
    Bumper to bumper the avenue’s packed
    I’m tryin’ to get away before the jackers jack
    Police on the scene
    You know what I mean
    They passed me up, confronted all the dope fiends
    If there was a problem
    Yo, I’ll solve it
    Check out the hook while my DJ revolves it

    Ice ice baby Vanilla
    Ice ice baby Vanilla
    Ice ice baby Vanilla
    Ice ice baby Vanilla

    Take heed, ’cause I’m a lyrical poet
    Miami’s on the scene just in case you didn’t know it
    My town, that created all the bass sound
    Enough to shake and kick holes in the ground
    ‘Cause my style’s like a chemical spill
    Feasible rhymes that you can vision and feel
    Conducted and formed
    This is a hell of a concept
    We make it hype and you want to step with this
    Shay plays on the fade, slice it like a ninja
    Cut like a razor blade so fast
    Other DJ’s say, “damn”
    If my rhyme was a drug
    I’d sell it by the gram
    Keep my composure when it’s time to get loose
    Magnetized by the mic while I kick my juice
    If there was a problem
    Yo, I’ll solve it!
    Check out the hook while my DJ revolves it

    Ice ice baby Vanilla
    Ice ice baby Vanilla
    Ice ice baby Vanilla

    Yo man, let’s get out of here
    Word to your mother

    Ice ice baby
    Too cold
    Ice ice baby
    Too cold too cold
    Ice ice baby
    Too cold too cold
    Ice ice baby
    Too cold too cold
