Tonight is Kentucky’s first appearance on ESPN’s “Super Tuesday,” which means it’s also the first time Jimmy Dykes will grace our TV sets. Dykes has made a name for himself on the college basketball scene with his rather, ehm…unique metaphors for gameplay, which often rhyme. At home, I envision him sitting at his desk in a Dr. Seuss Cat in the Hat hat, thumbing through a thesaurus trying to come up with yet another way to say “drive the nail.”
Last year, Jimmy was particularly infatuated with Jarnell Stokes, the talented Tennessee forward that chose the Vols over the Cats last spring. Stokes’ first game as a college player was against Kentucky, a fact which Jimmy came back to time and time again. He’s only practiced four times! He doesn’t know the plays! They don’t have a shoe to fit his size 20 foot! He barely even knows how to stretch, y’all. Stokes went on to score nine points in that game, but as far as Jimmy’s concerned, he was barely even capable of dressing himself afterwards.
Now that Jarnell’s a sophomore who has mastered stretching, I have a feeling Dykes will focus more on his “Jimmy’s Jet” segment, in which he tells viewers who he thinks is in and who he thinks is out of the NCAA Tournament. Fasten your seat belts, folks!
