Former Louisville Cardinals and current Miami Dolphins wide receiver DeVante Parker, like any former Louisville player, never hesitates to make fun of Kentucky. In this case, it was in response to a hype video that was posted on Twitter, and he posted a tweet of his own in response.
Idk why they showed Kentucky lol https://t.co/RXbNH2ogXc

Granted, Kentucky isn’t exactly a national football powerhouse, particularly playing in the SEC. In two seasons under head coach Mark Stoops, the Wildcats have gone just 7-17 (2-14 SEC) but are starting to show gradual improvement, even defeating South Carolina last year. Thus, it’s not as though their inclusion in the video was unwarranted.
But rivalries are rivalries, and Louisville takes on Kentucky this year on November 28. Thus, what else is Parker supposed to do but engage in the “friendly” rivalry between the Wildcats and his alma mater?
