Yahoo! ranked the starting quarterbacks in FBS football and ABSOLUTELY NO RESPECT FOR PATRICK TOWLES.

Towles is ranked No. 41 out of 128 quarterbacks and seventh among SEC quarterbacks. Go ahead and spit in his face why don’t you, Yahoo.

Patrick, your thoughts?

    I don’t see why people get so hung up on rankings. Besides, in Towles case, he hasn’t proven himself to be an elite QB. Hopefully, he will this season. His ranking isn’t all that bad in my opinion.

    Top 1/3 isn’t SO bad, but I bet he winds up top-20 by the end of the year. I’d say top-10 but I don’t really know much about all the QBs in the country.

    That’s top 1/3 of college football, not too bad for the leader of a team that didn’t make a bowl last year. He just needs to show what he can do, and do it for the whole season. That ranking will look a lot different this time next year.

    Calm down, don’t get caught up in pre-season rankings. It’s really not that big of a deal. All he has to do is go out and prove himself. Play great football, be a leader, and don’t worry about rankings.

    If he had kept up the pace from the first half of last season this ranking would be a lot higher. He is going to have every opportunity to prove it wrong. If he does, we go bowling.

    I think that’s a fair ranking. Gotta prove you can do it all season. I remember early last year a graphic from ESPN that had him like a top 3 QB in the SEC. That was of course during the 5-1 start. He will be right back up there again once these W’s start rolling in

    That ranking is more than fair. He has yet to beat a quality opponent as a QB – I don’t think you can count South Carolina last year as JoJo in the Wildcat was basically our only offense in the second half. Towles has every opportunity to prove himself this year, and will hopefully step up his game!

      I don’t think the QB’s rating begins and ends with the W, but I do think the better he does, the better we’ll do (obviously). He might not have *beaten* MSST last year, but that was probably his best performance all year.

    Pre-season rankings don’t matter. End of season rankings matter. I think Towles will move up the list.

      He was bad in pre-season ranking and he will be worse in Post-season ranking

      Seriously, stop using my screen name. You can post whatever stupid crap you want. Just don’t do so with my screen name. Feel free to be a dick using your own screen name.

      Towels did worse than Western QB in beating Vandy.
      Hope y’all can come out tomorrow and meet Kentucky Joe, Cesspool Cat, Trailer Trash Cat, One Testicle Cat, 550 lb Cat, Deliverance Cat, and Drew Franklin

      This troll posing as others is pathetic. What a sad existence.

      Find a hobby. Be productive. Maybe get a girlfriend.

      WKU QB stats vs Vandy: 209 yards passing, 19/30 completions, 1 TD passing
      Towles stats v. Vandy: 201 yards passing, 23/30 completions, 1 TD passing, 1 TD rushing

      You are wrong. Towles was better.

    Even W. KY’s QB was rated higher and he stunk against Vandy.

    It’s Yahoo, so Pat Forde had a hand in the rankings. No sweating over those fools.

    Coach Mark Stoops just informed me that the players clogged up most of the toilets in the new CWS. As you probably know most of the team can regularly evacuate 15 to 20 lb bowel movements and the toilets had no chance. Nick Roush will work late into the night to make sure us mortals can use the toilets tomorrow.

    Go Cats

    The ranking means nothing now, but it’s more than fair. Unless Towles has learned not to lock on to his first receiver and NEVER go to a 2nd option, he’ll never be a complete QB. Thanks, coach.

    He blew some games last year with his poor play at times and was not consistant at all. Fair ranking…for now. He’s gotta prove them wrong.

    I think Towles will prove to be a huge disappointment and that the ranking he currently holds with Yahoo will be considered way too generous.
