Monday Quickies: Night King for UK Quarterback Edition

New, comments

The Night King makes a legendary throw and more in today’s quickies.

Look, I love Stephen Johnson and Drew Barker, and I think their quarterback battle will end with one very good quarterback leading the Kentucky Wildcats through a successful season.

But..

What if the Night King was Kentucky’s quarterback?

It occurs to me that some of you don’t know what I’m talking about, so just watch this throw.

P.S., enjoy the eclipse! Make sure you wear your glasses!
