2014 QB Review

Needed Every QB On The Roster

Bobby Petrino 2.0 at UofL’s 1st year saw a Quarterback position in flux.  Will Gardner suffered a knee injury during the 3rd Quarter of the Florida International game with a 31-3 lead on a roughing the passer penalty.  As a result, little used senior Brett Nelson came in for relief and then later Kyle Bolin finished things up in the 4th quarter.  That late hit vs. FIU set into motion the need for the Cards to play 4 QBs in 2014.

The next week vs. Wake Forest true freshman Reggie Bonnafon started one week following the funeral for his father…..and Won. A week later Bonnafon rolled through Syracuse.  Bonnafon & Gardner split duties vs. Clemson, and then Will Gardner was back to being the starter for 2...

Petrino Car Wash Notes

Bobby Petrino 2014 ACC Kickoff Photo by Mark Blankenbaker

-Petrino says that if the season started today that Reggie Bonnafon would be the starter at QB.

-Called Kyle Bolin a ‘great competitor’.

-About Will Gardner “Was playing really well last year, and I felt at one point that ‘Hey we’ve got our offense where it needs to be’….and then he got injured.  So we’ll see how he comes off injury.”

-About Devonte Fields “He’s a great pass ruser.

-Talking about the Chick-fil-A Classic Opener vs. Auburn “I really like it...
