Help me out with this one, folks. This is an ultrasound that was sent to me (weird, right?) from a die hard Kentucky fan claiming this baby is throwing up the goggles. I don’t want to admit to seeing it, but it does kind of look like that’s what the young Cat fan is doing. What do you think?
— We can start calling ourselves “piranhas,” after Coach Cal’s comments to the media this afternoon. When talking about the hype surrounding the rivalry, Calipari said Kentucky fans not only feed everything; they “eat” everything. He said Big Blue Nation is like piranha that will attack anyone who writes an agenda-driven piece about Kentucky. “They’ll come eat your yard, your house. These people are nuts,” he said.
Nom. Nom. Nom. Nom.
— On Russ Smith, Calipari said, “ ”What’d he have on us last time? 30? Whoever guarded him last time will probably not guard him this time.”
If you remember, Smith scored eight of his 30 points in the final 12 seconds of that game. We’ll call it a 22-point outing.
— A UConn beat writer says North Carolina and Kentucky are two schools that have contacted Alex Oriahki since his release at UConn. Oriahki would be a perfect fit at Kentucky because he’s an experienced big with one-year of eligibility, and he’s good friends with Nerlens Noel. UK could use his size inside, and Oriahki could use John Calipari in his senior year to prepare for the NBA.
— On Sportscenter today, Doug Gottlieb stood in front of that gigantic touch-screen no one knows how to use and named his top 5 players in the Final Four. Missing from the list: Michael Kidd-Gilchrist and Louisville…
1.) Anthony Davis, Kentucky
2.) Thomas Robinson, Kansas
3.) Jared Sullinger, Ohio State
4.) Tyshawn Taylor, Kansas
5.) Aaron Craft, Ohio State
I’d switch MKG and Taylor. I also wouldn’t steal my college roommate’s wallet.
— Shabazz is considering Kentucky, UCLA, and Duke and he’ll announce his decision on April 11th. I still think we could hear from Nerlens Noel before the week is over. Come on down!!!
