An Eastern Kentucky Football Player Knocked Out Kentucky QB Drew Barker With A Suckerpunch So THAT Should Be An Interesting Game This Fall

You can have Michigan-Ohio State, Alabama-LSU and USC-UCLA. The most compelling game of the upcoming college football season will clearly be on Oct. 3 when Kentucky hosts Eastern Kentucky.

I know. I know. On paper this doesn’t seem like much of a matchup.

But two off-the-field incidents involving players from each team promise to make the game 60 minutes of cheap shots and bad blood.

Richmond police released video of a bar fight on Jan. 25 between the two squads in which they say Eastern Kentucky lineman Colton Scurry was the aggressor.

A bar video, released after an open records request, “made it apparent … that Mr. Scurry was the primary aggressor in the altercation,” the police report says. “He entered into a crowd willingly (without any physical altercation) and threw a punch at an unidentified male.”

A Madison County grand jury declined last week to indict Scurry or the UK players — quarterback Drew Barker, wide receiver Dorian Baker and defensive tackle Tymere Dubose — who were involved in the fight at Jerzee’s Cocktail Lounge & Dance Club in Richmond. Scurry, 20, an EKU offensive lineman, suffered a broken nose and other facial fractures.

Later on in the night, EKU defensive lineman Patrick Graffree confronted Barker in the lobby of an dorm and delivered a devastating suckerpunch to his head.


So yeah. Things will be quite testy.

You can imagine how much attention a story like this would be attracting if two big-name programs had been involved. Wall-to-wall coverage, 24/7.

Set your DVRs, folks. It’s going to be a war.
