BTI’s Rants and Ramblings: 2016 Football Roster As It Stands Now

Stoops-nsd

I know many of you are going to look at this post and immediately say “WHY THE HELL ARE YOU LOOKING AHEAD TO NEXT SEASON BTI!!!”.  Quite honestly, I look ahead to next season because that is what we do with basketball and that is what elite programs in both sports should do.  You are always planning for your present but also with an eye on the future.  So excuse me for doing what we do with basketball year-round.

Here is where the 2016 UK football scholarship roster currently stands with those players committed.  For the 2015 incoming freshman, I assumed all will be redshirted unless they are on the 2-deep depth chart released at the beginning of the month.

Those in RED would be projected as returning starters in 2016
Those in BLUE are Class of 2016 commits

    Last night I posted a comment that called Matt on the carpet for calling other folks opinions “idiotic”. I said Cawood would never have said that….that post was removed. I’ve said before that if you post it….its fair for me to comment on it. Obviously Matt disagrees. That is the mark of a socialist/communist…..silence the opposition. On another post, another writer called Donald Trump a “false prophet”. The Donald is just saying what a LOT of other folks are thinking and don’t have the guts to say.
    Matt, this “propaganda machine” you run here is nothing more than a toy for rich Duke grads or liberal inexperienced college boys to play on. Grow up. If you can’t handle a dissenting comment from and old Kentucky boy….what gives you the right to play politics at Fancy Farm?

      Matt is notorious for his thin skin and “dish it out but can’t take it” attitude. I can’t wait to see him run for office and cry during a debate because the opponent has something negative to say about him.

    I doubt King and Long will redshirt, but who knows … Leavitt and Ross are JUCO guys, so they’ll be Juniors, not Freshmen … also, you left off Marcelys Jones and De’Niro Laster

    Where does Marcelys Jones plug into the equation?

    There are a lot of classification errors on the offensive list.

      yes – I thought Towles/Phillips/Barker were all the same class

      all the redshirt stuff gets me messed up

    Don’t count on Westry, Walker, or Baity redshirting. I believe the staff expects them to play and make an impact this year
