BTI’s Rants and Ramblings: My Favorite Jared Lorenzen Game

This fanbase continues to mourn from the sudden loss of Jared Lorenzen last week but it has given us all a chance to reminisce about his amazing career at Kentucky and his amazing impact after his football life as well.  On the field, Lorenzen was known as a gun slinger.  He had to lead UK teams without much talent and still was able to rack up more stats than any UK quarterback in history.  He left memories that will last forever in this program but the game that I love the most was unquestionably the 2002 win over Louisville.  Several reasons why:

-Obviously UK was a huge underdog in this game as Louisville was hyping Dave Ragone as a Heisman contender.

-For the 2nd time in 3 tries the Cats took down the Cards on their home field.

-But more than anything, I really like this game for Jared because it didn’t require the gun slinging, throw it all over the field type of game we were accustomed to.  Lorenzen only threw for 195 yards in this game.  But a stingy defense and some key plays provided enough for the win.

Enough the full broadcast below as we celebrate the life of Jared today (and forever).

    Boy, did that defense deliver a beating to Ragone in that game. I remember watching it after I got home from church that evening. The UL game was on Labor Day Sunday for a few years there.

      What was even better was they had been running their mouths about an undefeated season and Heisman for Ragone. After one play where Jeremy Caudill flattened him Ragone sat up and was looking through his ear hole. It was awesome!!

    Another name also “Pakulak”. I was at that game and there were several times UofL was about to take control and Pakulak flipped with the field position with several monster punts and killed UofL’s momentum.

    Almost every one of those hits on Ragone would be 15 yarders today. It was crazy to watch.
