Louisville Offers Mac Jones

After earning MVP honors at Rivals QB Challenge Finals, additional offers were inevitable.  I don’t think any of us would have guessed the first one would come from the University of Louisville.

Bobby Petrino has extended a scholarship offer to the 4-star Kentucky commit.  It’s Jones’ 16th offer to date.  If nothing else, Petrino’s quarterbacking pedigree validates Mark Stoops’ recruiting success, but that’s none of his business.

    Pretty simple choice for him. And his parents, a school that respects women, produces quality athletes, and gives them a great opportunity to help their families, or one that puts itself and it’s glorious AD, coaches and ego ahead of all kids and uses women as pawns in their quest for greatness.

      “produces quality athletes, and gives them a great opportunity to help their families, or one that puts itself and it’s glorious AD, coaches and ego ahead of all kids and uses women as pawns in their quest for greatness”.

      Pretty funny thing to say when U of L has put easily 5 X as many players in the NFL draft than uk has the last 3 or 4 years. Don’t even get me started on QBs. A school that gets QBs into the NFL with some regularity? Or one who gets a few in every 40 years or so?

      Bottom line is it really doesn’t matter to Bobby. He will still own you on the field of play either way.

      Trash? Really?

      uk is ranked #2 in the nation in having football players arrested.

      U of L puts players in the NFL. uk puts them in jail.

      Bobby is scum, your program is dirty. We currently have 16 active players. Louisville has 29. For all that bragging you do, you’d think you’d have at least twice as many as us. You know, like we have more than quadruple the amount of basketball players in the NBA than Louisville.

      And some of our players in the NFL were jokers guys. I would expect strong and Petrino to get more nfl guys than joker and what little time stoops has had.

      I actually follow Jones on Twitter. He’s a good kid with a great family. The thought of him attending Louisville is laughable.

      @Booby

      I said 5 X as many into the NFL the last 3-4 years. Kragthorpe did not put players into the NFL. There was a 3-4 year gap there.

      Wait until the next wave of U of L players goes in next year. We had 4 on defense who chose to forgo THIS YEAR and improve their draft stock. I am not sure exactly how many will go in the next two seasons, but we will have way more than twice as many after the next two drafts.

      uk has 0 prospects this season. U of L will continue our streak of 4 years in a row with a first rounder.

      Now…basketball. Yeah…lots more players in the NBA and you own us. But how many championships have you won in that time? 1 U of L? 1

      I’ll take the championship and the great football over a championship and crap football everyday.

      And beside, we are talking about Mac Jones and football anyway. I know basketball is all you got though.

      We won our championship in 3 years with Cal. It took Pitino 13 and a down year to win his. Tee hee.

      What difference does that make?

      You’re getting too petty for my tastes. Please come up with something intelligent or witty.

      uk has gone through droughts too of course.

      Here’s my take.

      In my life time uk has won 4 NCs in basketball. U of L has won 3. I’m not exactly hurting over here. And then there is all the great football games I have been too. The Fiesta Bowl, Orange Bowl, and Sugar Bowl. All wins. Trophies in the case. The baseball team going to 3 CWS. The women’s bball playing for the title twice. The soccer team playing for a title.

      Yep. A WHOLE lot more going on over here. MUCH more fun!

      So your’e proud of your women’s bball Finals, CWS appearances, but our 4 Final Fours and a title in 6 years is underachieving? LOL

      “All” my time? I’m not sure what the point in posting something dumb and not base in reality is. The record is there.

      uk has gone 20, 18 and 16 years between titles…so whatever.

      Certainly its not underachieving in basketball, the fact remains you are a one sport school.

      The football program is an unquestionable joke. 3rd in the state (barely, FCS EKU took you to OT)

      lmao

      8?

      Yeah I guess I wish we could go around hollering “We’re #2!” (to UCLA) instead of going to great football games.

      Not.

      Not for me anyway.

      No banner will come down. Players would have to be declared ineligible, and that won’t happen. A few stripper parties will not trigger loss of amateur status for any player. No way.

      Now if something else we don’t know were to come out…

      How quickly you forget the Kragthorpe/Cooper, etc years.

      Congrats on tying the head-to-head series with us.

      Oh, and the Capital One and Directors Cup in recent years suggests otherwise…..

      And its better than “we’re #6!”

      And surely you realize that seasons and banners have been vacated for less….

      Remember, Rose was CLEARED TWICE by the NCAA.

      I seriously don’t see it happening.

      A player of players has to be declared ineligible. Rose was declared academically ineligible. The only other way to be ineligible is loss of amateur status.

      Its the rules.

      I don’t see that happening unless something new were to come out about players profiting somehow.

      NCAA legislation specifically defines and categorizes different types of impermissible benefits (e.g., extra benefits, recruiting inducements, and preferential treatment). Regardless of the type of impermissible benefit, however, the prohibition is generally the same: under most circumstances, prospective and enrolled student-athletes (along with their friends and families) cannot receive goods or services based on their status as athletes. The following are categories of benefits that NCAA legislation prohibits boosters and other athletics stakeholders from providing to prospective and enrolled student-athletes:

      Cash and cost-free goods and services;
      Special discounts, payment arrangements, or credit options for products or services if the same are not available to all ASU students;
      Preferential treatment, benefits, or services based on a student-athlete’s athletics reputation, skill, or pay-back potential as a future professional athlete;
      Payment for work not performed or at unreasonable levels; and
      The purchase of items or services from student-athletes or their relatives at inflated prices.
      Prospective and enrolled student-athletes who receive such benefits jeopardize their eligibility to compete in intercollegiate athletics.

      Oh, and don’t forget Mizzou:

    The only thing that can validate recruiting success is wins!

    The UofL ‘Little Brother’ jokes are funny and for the most part true but you make UK seem like the little brother by saying things like “If nothing else, Petrino’s quarterbacking pedigree validates Mark Stoops’ recruiting success, but that’s none of his business.” is that any different than an older brother validating his younger brothers taste in women by hitting on the same girls?
