UK students make banner supporting Patrick Towles


On Friday, Patrick Towles came on the show to discuss his decision to transfer from UK, a great interview you should definitely go back and listen to if you missed it. Patrick is still in the process of checking out schools, and judging by the tweet leaves, he may have Colorado State this past weekend.

When Patrick got back to campus, he had the¬†banner pictured above greeting him, a cool gesture by his fellow students and friends. Hopefully we’ll know his future destination soon.

    How do Towles’ teammates feel about his decision to transfer? How’s the locker room reacting now that he’s moving on? I’ve seen and heard fans’ support, but wonder how the team feels.

    Biggest waste of talent I’ve seen in along time. His decline is a reflection of the coaching staff’s mistakes all year. Mel Kiper has been doing his job for a long time and he wouldn’t have named him in the top-5 underclassmen for nothing. Between the play-calling, terrible offensive line, and receiver drops, Towles was doomed to fail. What a shame…. Those who think Drew Barker can do better than Patrick is in denial or don’t know football. Wish him the best!

      Go back and look at Kiper’s pre-draft picks vs. how they were actually drafted and then compare his pick order vs. how well they have done in the NFL. The guy really doesn’t know a lot. He was just the first one to do what he does, made a brand doing it, and has kept the terrible hair all these years so as not to mess with his brand.

      Towels is not NFL talent. He has NFL size. That is the only reason people were mentioning him for the draft.

    Best chance to win next year is walking out the door. Be happy BBN, you don’t know anything about anything. Towles proved to the KSR staff he was better than Barker. Sorry that Roush and Thompson limited comments to influence this transfer.

    We should go ahead and fire the staff this year because the fans have determined they want them to fail because they would rather have Barker at quarterback this year without winning the job. Congrats, you’ve crippled us.

      “Sorry that Roush and Thompson limited comments to influence this transfer”…are you serious with that comment? Do you honestly think that (1) the KSR comments section influenced Patrick to transfer and (2) that KSR would limit comments hoping that a QB who should be busy with football and school would hopefully read the comments section of KSR and make a decision based on that? You can’t be serious. Or are you really that naive to think someone would base their life decisions on the KSR commetns?

      Carl, that is without a doubt, the most ignorant bunch of rambling I’ve read in some time.

    It will be interesting to see where he goes and how he does at another school. I hope he kills it.

    This is going to be one of those “IMHO” types of comments, but I believe that Patrick Towles is a better quarterback than Drew Barker. I think the coaching staff knew it as evidenced by the fact that they tried to “throw” Patrick back into the Louisville game, in order to “pull it out” towards the end of the game. Problem is, they waited way too late to do it, so Patrick came out looking like a “loser”.

    I’m not ususally a “conspiracy theorist”, but assuming that there was, in fact, a locker room “divide”, primarily involving Drew vs. Patrick, and most of the receivers were wanting Drew to be the quarterback, I’m wondering how many of those “dropped balls”, throughout the season, may have been caught, had someone else been throwing the ball?????

    My recommendation: Someone of importance contact Patrick Towles, and ask him to reconsider his decision to transfer!!!! Maybe that someone of importance might be someone whose last name is “Stoops”!!!!!

      If certain wr’s intentionally dropped passes or short armed because they have a bromance with a qb, they need to be shown the door. You play for KY, not for one qb. Also Jared mentioned a wr not wanting to catch for fear of getting blown up by a defender. I have no idea the context or if it was a misunderstanding, but….First of all, its the SEC. A punter might blow you up. Take off the diaper and play. Second, i like Barker, but he tends to miss high, at least he did this year. He will get you crushed as well. Joe Montana could also…manning…..any qb…it comes with playing wr. Get over it or try another sport….like chess.
