Good morning, Big Blue Nation. How was your evening? Spent with friends and family, I hope. ‘Tis the season after all. Your Kentucky Wildcats are headed home for the next few days to recover, before packing back up and returning to Lexington for three days, for what will surely be intense workouts in preparation for Louisville. We fans still have a ways to get ready for the big day, but the time is coming for our Cats to make a statement.
Let’s hit the links. I’m getting way too excited this early in the morning.
– Kentucky point guard Ryan Harrow had a big day yesterday, and the national media took notice. The sophomore transfer is being asked to lead, which means being more vocal and more aggressive.
– The Lexington Herald-Leader got its hands on the records of season ticket holders in Rupp Arena. So you can go onto the internet and search who has season tickets, how much they paid for them, and where the seats are located. Any guesses to why this massive database of rather personal information was published?
– Louisville is focused solely on the team it hasn’t beaten in its last four tries, losing by an average of nearly 10 points. The defending national champions, your Kentucky Wildcats. Is the pressure on Rick Pitino and the Cardinals to solidify their place in the national picture? Or John Calipari and the Wildcats to prove they are the undefeated top-dog in the state?
– Kentucky recruit Dakari Johnson helped his team capture the City of Palms Classic Saturday in Fort Myers, Florida. Johnson and No. 3 Montverde Academy knocked off sharp-shooting Lone Peak out of Utah, 66-45. The Knights from Lone Peak are the No. 1 team in the country according to MaxPreps. Johnson finished with 10 points, 11 rebounds and four blocked shots.
– If you haven’t voted in the EA Sports NCAA Football cover vote, what are you waiting for? This first round of voting is just to make the next round of 32, but what better way to show the power of Big Blue Nation that pull out a victory in the fan vote? Kentucky holds a narrow edge of about 1,000 votes over second-place Penn State. Log on to Facebook and vote for the Cats.
– The Louisville Courier-Journal sat down with UK Athletic Director Mitch Barnhart for a one-on-one regarding the football program, the staffs of new and old, and the future of Commonwealth Stadium. It isn’t earth-shattering news, but worth a read on your Sunday morning. Get excited about football, Big Blue Nation. This is a good time to be a football fan.
