Trash talk? Patrick Towles "can't wait" for another shot at UofL

LEXINGTON — Most of Big Blue Nation has been focused on basketball the past few months as seven Wildcats prepare for Thursday’s NBA Draft — but not UK quarterback Patrick Towles.

The junior signal caller still has football on his mind, specifically next year’s rematch with arch-rival Louisville.

Towles posted an picture from the 2014 UK vs. UofL football game to his Instagram account on Tuesday night with the caption, “Can’t wait to get another shot at these guys.”

Both fan bases — naturally — went crazy commenting on the post, but it seems like Towles wasn’t trying to trash talk his rival but rather is just looking forward to a chance to redeem himself after a disappointing performance in Kentucky’s heartbreaking 44-40 loss to Louisville to end last season.

Towles finished the 2014 Governor’s Cup with 14-29 passing for 129 yards and two interceptions — one of which was picked off by Louisville safety Gerod Holliman, the Cardinal featured in Towles’ Instagram post.

KSTV discussed the potential “trash talk” — or lack thereof — on Wednesday’s show, including Towles’ motivation to improve in 2015.
