Benched Kentucky QB wishes good luck to his replacement

After starting out 4-1, Kentucky has lost five straight and fallen to 4-6 on the year. Not surprisingly, quarterback Patrick Towles has been replaced by backup Drew Barker in the starting lineup.

Towles, meanwhile, is graciously stepping aside, allowing for as smooth a transition as possible.

After the news broke he tweeted his support for his replacement. Hopefully the change is what the Wildcats need to become bowl eligible.

Kentucky returns to action this Saturday against the Charlotte 49ers.
