One never knows where one is gonna run into a guy with a big fat Orange Bowl ring gleaming in the sunshine.  It caught the eye of the Biggest Fan of the Big East, as much as my surprise, to cross paths with Tyler Wolfe, former University of Louisville quarterback under Bobby Petrino.

He pulls up in a golf cart at a Toyota dealership in Murray wanting to know who was in the naughty Volvo with UofL stickers/plate and wearing a UofL Baseball shirt and red Adidas shorts.   As it turns out, Tyler is married to a Murrayan, Murrayite, Murrisian, eh, who knows (beside the point).

Wolfe is wheelin’ and dealin’ cars and talking football in Racerland as he waits to hear from his agent about any NFL calls he might be getting in the near future.  The lock out mess really got in the way lately, but when asked about any hopeful scenarios, he mentioned the Kansas City Chiefs as a possibility.

The BFOTBE had a feeling that Wolfe wouldn’t want to give out any juicy dirt on the Kragthorpe regime. Sure enough, he was all class. Instead of talking about how Kragthorpe didn’t include him in his “right way” plans, or how the “coach” drove the team off a cliff, into the ground, etc.,  Tyler said after he transferred to Northwestern State, he threw for 350 yards in a game and promptly received a call from Kragthorpe congratulating him on his performance.

Speaking of coaches, as if it was another surprise, Tyler spoke about how impressed he was with one Coach Charlie Strong.

So if you live in the western part of the state and are looking for a new ride, drive over to Toyota of Murray and see Tyler and let him hook you up.  You’ll be supporting a classy UofL guy in the process and I’m sure he’ll really love to talk about his experience with you.  But you better hurry, he might not be in town much longer!
