Sorry if this old news. I knew Pike was arrested for Pub. Intox. but I didnt know he was not on campus all summer. Hmmm.... We've known this for a while but it's worth repeating Joker and co got the right QB prospect in the state. I think we need to trust him and this staff on some other things as well!!
He enrolled last January and participated in spring practice, but he'll miss the rest of the team's informal summer workout
Yeah there was a couple of threads about Pike being sent hone a while back but i also agree its worth repeating....we absolutely got the right QB in Towells.
Also agree with trusting Joker and Co
Didn't joker and company offer Pike well before towles? I agree we got the right qb, but it seems like we were wandering why joker hadn't offered towles and had offered Pike.
Everyone offered Pike before/during his junior year....if Joker hadn't offered there would be a ton of fans, no doubt, questioning Joker's citizenship of the state of KY (I jest). We definitely got the right guy though. Pike appears to be a handful.

It will be interesting to see what Auburn does with Pike, they already have another QB that everyone is raving about. Pike could end up as a backup QB, or possibly move to TE, not sure how he would take either one of those options.

Thank you Chiuk. I was thinking that was right but couldn't remember.
How much complaining was there last year that we weren't recruiting Pike hard enough and that the staff was stupid for not doing enough to get him here?
No prob. He "blew up" that summer before he was a junior....before he had even played a snap as starting varsity QB actually. Florida, Auburn, UK, and a ton of other major BCS schools threw out the offers that summer.
He's had some other incidents in the past that obviously hasn't gotten through to him, so hopefully this inicident will force his head to walk a tight line, as he has one heckuva an opportunity in front of him but he's doing everything he can to p*ss it away.
I'd say DE or LB b4 TE.
The part about him throwing a ball at an official at a camp was unbelievable. Just dumb
