Keion Wakefield pulled the ol’ switcharoo

@ITVHughes

Keion Wakefield, a three-star wide receiver out of Louisville, chose his hometown Cardinals over your University of Kentucky Wildcats this afternoon. That’s fine. Do you, man.

Our only problem with the whole thing is the way he announced his decision. Wakefield picked up the UK hat, acted like he was putting it on his head, then dropped it for the UofL flatbill.

Now we’ve got beef.

DID THIS HALF-HUG MEAN NOTHING TO YOU???

    I don’t see why this is a problem recruits want attention. Just like Kash leading on SC or Damien Harris Leading on UK or Elam leading on Bama. It happens. These recruits want to be in the spotlight and have attention. Lets move on

    Good luck to the kid– remember hes 17-18 years old, and these antics are good for rivalry. We’ve had guys do the same kind of stuff.

      You chose a username that I have been using on this site for YEARS. I don’t always agree with your opinions and do not want them attributed to me. It is confusing to have two people using the same screen name. Get another screen name.

    Are we REALLY surprised he picked Louisville? Don’t you think he wants to play in a BOWL GAME? Maybe even ANOTHER BCS Bowl game or PLAYOFF game? Where do you HONESTLY think his chances are better to achieve that? GET REAL FOLKS! We’re hoping/praying for a 6-6 (.500) season and going to the CACTUS Bowl. What’s it been, FIVE YEARS???? . . .

    BOWL or BUST STOOPS! PERIOD. smh . . .

      UL football is still good, but they are going down hill fast. Keion might be the best player they have gotten since Charlie left that doesn’t have a domestic violence charge against them. Bottom line is, Keion went there because he lives in Louisville, and he grew to like the smell of sewage in the river, and carcinogens wafting across Louisville’s campus from Rubbertown.

    Whoa… the guy going to UL is making his own reputation by his actions. The same goes for the comments here. I’d be more embarassed by the comments on this post than what some 18 year old kid did during his college announcement.

      J-Dub421 whichever one posted about Ul losing in the bowl game shut-up. We cant even get to a bowl game to lose. We have a good recruiting class but lets see how this season goes before we start throwing shade at UL football. Bball we can all day. Until Stoops starts putting W’s on the board lets not talk



    • J-Dub421

      I will not shut up. Louisville fans can post whatever they want over on the card chronicle, but if they come here to troll I’m not just going to let it slide. Their fans act like U of L is the second coming of Alabama, and they are not.

    Kinda hard to pull a switcheroo for a school where you aren’t a take. He was told at Friday Night Lights that UK would not accept his commitment. Then…BOOM, he commits to Loserville. The hat move was Bush League and so typical of UL and their ilk. Petrino probably put him up to it. Oh well, you know what they say in Jefferson County: #Loser1stCard4ever



  13. Eh
    4:12 pm July 23, 2015 Permalink

    OMG UK is sooo….hurt…okay…It’s not like UK wanted him bad. We will get better WRs next year.We already got a bunch of good ones from the 2015 class and a few more from 2015. UK will have the last laugh. Bank it.

      shut up fool. if he had picked UK you would have wondered why it wasnt on espn! it was big enough a show for KSP to make it a headliner!



    • Bobby Petrino

      Yeah, I remember how it was. Fact is, he doesn’t have the credentials (criminal record) that I prefer (Man I miss Clint Hurtt); but his momma ….and a girl who said she was his sister….she, they…. made this possible. So, yeah. I think he will help us…our team…..as a family. We just can’t let our new 3 star Kreskin know about the indiscretions (with his momma, and sister). To the Eye You fans, by the way, did you really believe for one minute he was gonna go to a Jew school?

      KSP made it a headliner? It was broadcast at the auto auction? Sounds about right. Very Louisville.

    I’m sure this kid was very tempted to pick UK. I mean, who wouldn’t want to play for a coach who played Francis in Pee Wee’s Big Adventure. And the thought of going 4 and 8 and being the anal cavity of the SEC was probably another great selling feature.

    I, for one, feel sorry for the young man. He will probably be a decent player as good as the 3* rating or better. We know where he wanted to attend, but was turned away. The sad part about it is why he would then choose little bro knowing the # of players who have issues. Since he is a 3* I bet old motorcycle rider will dump him when a troubled 4* comes available, sad, but good luck to you anyway young man.

    He never once ….considered our Game cokes.

    I mean game roosters.

    Damn that Mark Bradley!

    I’ll get even (I have a contract with my undertaker to provide me with posthumous “6 Million Dollar Man” abilities to be able to SQUEEZE the necks of those haters as they look over my body in state (shit…they took away the rebel flag……….need one for muh casket…..hell fuck….why am uh here?).

    Once Lou (Holtz) quits drooling on the contract, our lawyer can make this happen.

    No one wants to play for a coach that was that fat guy in Teen Wolf. Stoops should have a little pride and try to lose at least 50 pounds.

    Well, I played with Keion in middle school and he is a good kid and player. He is a year older then me and I play at jtown now, so I don’t go to male but he always said he wanted to go to UK so give him some time and he may rethink. But I’m excited for this upcoming season in UK football and I think we have a good chance to beat UL and I can see how we get better. But anyways I’m proud of keion and hopefully I can make my way up to being that good so I have a choice like that but for me it’s BBN all the way
