Mark Stoops’ postgame press conference was as somber as you would imagine, and considering the problems UK’s offense had, it was only natural for reporters to question the quarterback play. Patrick Towles was 29-42 for 3 touchdowns, but his shaky play gave life to the very vocal Drew Barker contingent. So much so that after the game, Mark Stoops admitted he considered replacing Towles with Barker.
“I did. I did. I thought about it,” Stoops said, when asked if he considered playing Barker.
Meanwhile, some good news to end this on: Boom Williams WILL be back for Auburn after disciplinary measures.
“If he was suspended, he wouldn’t have been on the sideline.”
Well alright then. This should be an interesting bye week.
