Throughout the summer, we are going to revisit some of the posts of the past to see how far we’ve come as a website and as fans of the Kentucky Wildcats. Today’s edition of “On This Day In KSR History” comes from July 3, 2008, when Jules Camara was arrested, Maggard compared Matt Pilgrim to Jamal Mashburn, and Matt professed his love for Jon Hood after shooting an 87 at Quail Chase. The Internet never forgets…
July 3, 2008
Thursday Night Notes…
Played like dog today and put up an 87 at Quail Chase….dont tell anyone. A guy in my group threw up a 70 today, marking his best round ever as a golfer. Last time I played Bobby Perry shot 78 from the tips at Valhalla and proclaimed it the “best I have ever played.” The lesson here….if you want to play better than you ever have in your life, play in a group against me for money. Couple of things….
— The Jules story is absurd. Saw the police and made a turn at 45 mph into a hotel parking lot? And then allegedly poured a Rum and Coke into his floorboard….good gosh Jules. As those of you have been around here may know, I have a history with Jules (have to be a REALLY old school podcast guy to know that story) that is one of my better stories of college life. I nevertheless like Jules and pull for him….but he does some ridiculous things.
— UK is trying to get Matthew Pilgrim eligible for this year by petitioning the NCAA on a “hardship” claim. No idea what the claim is or whether it will be successful, but we shall see. I saw Marc Maggard compared Pilgrim to Jamal Mashburn on a thread on TCP….someone got into the Fourth of July drinks a little soon.
— I really like Jon Hood….a lot. Talked to a former UK player yesterday about him and he recently saw him play saying, “he is exactly what UK needs….good shooter, can score and plays smart. I think he will be a UK star.” I agree FWIW.
— The “faceless” people at Wimbledon creep me out….but I am fascinated by them.
The weekend now officially begins and I am ready. There will still be posts on here for those of you looking and I head off Sunday to the Lebron James Academy. Have a great Fourth….
