Mardi Gras and Boogie and The Brow go together better than peas and carrots. This time last year DeMarcus Cousins used the New Orleans Fat Tuesday parade as his introduction to the fans. Much has changed in the last year. Instead of throwing out beads, this year he’s throwing up weights to start his “resurgence.”

In his absence, Davis has changed his setting to “Beast” mode. He posted 38 points and 10 rebounds in the purple Mardi Gras uniforms.

To all my good Catholic friends, shake out all of the bad tonight while you can. Here’s to hoping the Kentucky Wildcats abstain from bad basketball this Lenten season.
Coach Cal Previews Auburn
Coach Cal will be back at the podium for a press conference today to talk about tomorrow’s trip to Auburn. Hopefully it’s as exciting as last night’s call-in show. He was fired up. Calipari may say he’s tired, but doesn’t sound too tired to turn this team team around.
Will Bryce Brown be Back?
Auburn’s leading scorer suffered a shoulder strain last Wednesday against Texas A&M. He returned to practice yesterday in a non-contact capacity. Bruce Pearl said Brown will play against UK if he can practice at 100 percent today. Auburn was able to beat Georgia on Saturday without Brown.
“It was really swollen and sore. He wasn’t able to function as far as mobility,” Pearl said. “He has the mobility now, but we’ll see if he has the stability.”
Isaac Humphries Needs Your Help
The former Kentucky Wildcat launched the Inside-Out Challenge yesterday to combat bullying. Humphries is encouraging fans to wear their t-shirts inside-out and use the hashtag #MyInsideOut. The meaning behind it is simple.
“The symbolism behind it is, turning your shirt inside-out shows that you accept people for who they are on the inside,” Humphries said.
To hear more of Humphries’ message and see how he’s spent his first year away from UK, listen to the latest edition of The Aaron Torres Sports Podcast.
