5. Mike Hartline threw for 5,680 yards and 38 touchdowns. He also adds one rushing touchdown to his resume as well. Hartline didn’t have the huge numbers to climb this list, but he had talent around him and he was a gritty player who could win football games.

4. Andre Woodson (2004-2007)

Andre Woodson is one of the great players in all of Kentucky football history. Woodson was a strong armed gunslinger who could distribute the football wherever he wanted. No throw was too difficult for him to complete. In his four seasons at Kentucky from 2004 to 2007, Woodson threw for 9,360 yards and 79 total touchdowns.

Woodson led Rich Brooks’ team to two straight bowl wins in the Music City Bowl. Both of those wins were against current national powerhouses in Clemson in 2006 and Florida State in 2007.

Woodson led the SEC in pass completions in 2006 and 2007. Also, he led the SEC in touchdowns, passing yards in each of his last two seasons under center. Andrew Woodson is seventh in the SEC in career touchdowns with 79. Additionally, he ranks twelfth all-time in the SEC for passing yards in a career with 9,360.

3. Vito “Babe” Parilli (1949-1951)

Babe Parilli was one of the all time great players at Kentucky. He played under legendary coach Paul “Bear” Bryant at Kentucky from 1949-1951. Parilli compiled a career yardage count of 4,351 along with 50 touchdowns. In a time when throwing the ball looked different, Parilli excelled. Spread offenses and highly complex passing reads had yet been a thing. His stats came from pitch and catch football. Parilli holds two All-American honors for the 1950 and 1951 seasons. His touchdown total is pretty impressive considering he only threw the ball 592 times in his three year career. Parilli’s skills can be seen at 1:20 on the video above. Watch as he hurls a pass down to the six hardline, then punches it in with a quick strike.

Parilli finished fourth in the Heisman Trophy voting in 1950 and fourth in 1951. In 1950, Parilli led Kentucky to an 11-1 record and top five national ranking. That team went on to defeat the top ranked, undefeated Oklahoma Sooners in the 1950 Sugar Bowl. He went on to be drafted in the first round with the fourth overall pick to the Green Bay Packers in the 1952 NFL Draft.

2. Jared Lorenzen (2000-2003)

Jared Lorenzen may be the most polarizing figure in Kentucky football history. The Highlands High School star came to Kentucky in 2000. He played four seasons at Kentucky. Standing 6-foot-4 and weighing in the ballpark of 290 pounds, Lorenzen looked as though he was playing the offensive line position. But, that was not the case. Lorenzen possessed a rocked launcher of an arm and surprising mobility for his frame.

Lorenzen tallied 10,356 total passing yards, in his illustrious career which ranks seventh all time in the SEC. In addition to his yardage total, he threw for 78 touchdowns. To much surprise, Lorenzen also rushed for 12 touchdowns as well. Lorenzen has the Kentucky Football record for career passing yards, is second all time in touchdowns behind Andre Woodson. Jared Lorenzen also leads all Kentucky Quarterbacks with 1,514 total passing attempts in a career. The “Hefty Lefty” was the SEC Freshman of the year and an All-SEC selection as a freshman in 2000. His career interception ratio of 2.80 percent is the third-lowest in SEC history. Lorenzen is also eighth all-time in the SEC for career touchdowns. He is high on the list of SEC greats.

1. Tim Couch (1996-1998)

Tim Couch is probably the most famous Kentucky Football quarterback of all time. Couch played at Kentucky for three seasons from 1996-1998. In his tenure as the Kentucky quarterback, the Leslie County, KY native threw for 8,435 passing yards in his career. Couch also there for 74 total touchdowns in just three seasons.

Probably the most interesting statistic of Couch’s career at Kentucky comes from his Senior season. In 1998, Couch threw for 4,275 yards and 36 touchdowns while completing 72.3 percent of his passes. Tim Couch led the nation is pass completions in both 1997 and 1998 campaigns. He also led the SEC in virtually every single passing category in those seasons as well.

I believe Hartline is the most under appreciated QB of the modern UK era. Joker cut his own throat by kicking him off the team and losing the bowl game. I really disliked Joker.

Mr Couch would still be in the NFL if he would have been selfish and refused to go an expansion team. I wished he had. He still made a bunch of money. He looked out his ear hole, after a lot of plays, because the Browns had bums on the O-line and he got pounded into the turf by the defense.
