SEC Network to air “Big Blue Bahamas” on Sunday

SEC Network to air “Big Blue Bahamas” on Sunday

Kentucky fans will get a special treat after Sunday’s Blue-White Game on the SEC Network. Immediately following the Blue-White action, the SEC Network will air “Big Blue Bahamas,” a 30-minute special on Kentucky’s foreign trip to the Bahamas.

The special will give viewers a behind-the-scenes look at the Cats’ time in Paradise Island back in August. The show will feature interviews with John Calipari and the players, mic’d up segments from the games, take fans inside team meetings, and “be along for the ride as the players and staff enjoyed the amenities at the Atlantis Paradise Island Resort.”

“Big Blue in the Bahamas” will air at other to-be-determined times in the future, but you might as well go ahead and stick around for it after the Blue-White game. If you’re going to the Blue-White game, set your DVR now.

Go Cats.


Four-Star Pass Rusher is Officially Visiting Kentucky this Weekend

@jjtimeee

One of the state’s most talented uncommitted prospects will take his final official visit this weekend with a trip to Kentucky.

Four-star edge rusher J.J. Weaver will make the short drive from Louisville to watch the Cats take on Vanderbilt.  Weaver is no stranger to Kroger Field.  In his most recent unofficial visit, the pass rusher watched Josh Allen dominate Mississippi State.

The timing of the visit works well for Kentucky.  UK gets the final pitch before he makes his decision in two weeks.  A Broward County, Florida native, Miami is UK’s toughest competition.  UofL, Cincinnati, Tennessee and Purdue are also finalists, but the Cats are in the driver’s seat and could close the deal this weekend.

If Vince Marrow can seal the deal, Weaver will be a game-changer. Take a look for yourself.

Weaver will not be the only recruit on campus.  There will be a number of underclassmen in attendance and a 2019 commit, DeMarcus Harris.  The wide receiver is making the trip from Florida for an unofficial visit.  He’s already posted some outstanding numbers this season — 1,142 yards and 11 receiving touchdowns.  See some of Harris’ best work here.


You’ll be Proud of the name of UK’s new baseball stadium

When you go to watch the Bat Cats in 2019  you’ll be watching their home games at the brand spanking new Kentucky Proud Park. Kentucky Farm Bureau entered into a 15-year agreement with JMI Sports for the rights.

I think Kentucky Proud Park has a nice ring to it and it’s significantly better than other corporate-named stadiums across the country, even the stadium across the street (sup, Kroger). Remember, JMI Sports purchased the multimedia rights for UK in 2014 for $210 million (15 years). In that deal, JMI works out the deals to name the stadiums on UK’s campus and keeps the money from the partnership.

But thanks to the $210 million from JMI UK was able to construct the $49 million ballpark. Now UK baseball plays in one of the nicest stadiums in the country and it will certainly help with recruiting. It holds 4,000 fans with room for 7,000 fans if the Cats host a regional or super regional in the NCAA Tournament.

UK has already played a couple scrimmages in the new stadium and I’ve heard nothing but great things. I can’t wait to check out Kentucky Proud Park (KPP) in 2019.

BBNBA: John Wall has a big opening night, Wizards fall short

Geoff Burke-USA TODAY Sports

Recap:

  • John Wall started the season with an impressive showing, as his speed and athleticism were put on display throughout the game. Wall led his team in points with 26, assists with 9, blocks with 3, and in plus/minus at +6. He was clearly the best player on the floor for the Wizards; however, much like in year’s past, his efforts were not enough. Heat forward and Wizard killer Kelly Olynk had a game winning put back to give Miami the W. It appears that Washington’s strategy of perennially making no attempt to bring in help for Wall and Bradley Beal is not a smart strategy.
  • On the flip side of the Wizards vs Heat game, Bam Adebayo had a quiet night for Miami. He played 17 minutes, scoring 4 points and pulling down an impressive 9 boards.
  • Update: LeBron James is still good at basketball, even on the West Coast. Last night was the beginning of the Lebron Era in Los Angeles and he was making highlights early and often. Unfortunately for Laker fans, they’ll have to wait for their first win as the Trail Blazers spoiled opening night in LA. Former Cat Rajon Rondo got the start over Lonzo “I’m scared of De’Aaron Fox” Ball in the season opener, finishing with a points-assists double double.
  • Tyler Ulis checked in for the final 49.7 seconds of the Chicago Bulls’ first game of the year and did not accumulate any stats. Hopefully, over time, Ulis can become a contributor on the second line for the Bulls.

Valley View and Raven Run Anchor Friday/Saturday Cards as Keeneland Meet Winds Down

The handicapping was mostly on point last weekend as we hit with a $41.50 exacta in the sixth race on Friday, and both Saturday picks were winners as well.  Unfortunately, neither Copper Town nor Rushing Fall met the minimum odds requirements to add those winning wagers to the bankroll, which remains $79.50 in the red.  This weekend is the last full weekend of racing as the fall meet comes to a close next Saturday, the 27th.

Friday, October 19th – Race 3

Preamble was impressive breaking his maiden at first asking for Rodolphe Brisset at Churchill last month.  He exited that effort breathing fire with a :59 and 3 breeze over this surface on October 7th. Impeccably bred by Speightstown out of the multiple graded stakes placed mare Beautician, he is meant to be a good one.  Bingwa took her debut on the grass over next-out winner Stage Direction.  She sports a solid work tab over the local surface and moves to the main track to take on the boys for Wesley Ward, who wins at a 40% clip with horses moving from turf to dirt.

Wager: $2 Exacta box with Preamble and Bingwa

Race 9, the Grade 3 Valley View

Unlike the more prestigious Queen Elizabeth II dominated by Rushing Fall last Saturday, this two-turn turf stake for 3yo fillies is a wide open affair.  Cool Beans will attempt to take this field pillar to post, and she appears well spotted for that strategy as there is very little honest pace signed on here.  Distance is the question for her as she was able to set a moderate pace at this distance in the Hatoof at Arlington and was unable to hang on when bested by the re-opposing Colonia.  Chipoleta ran very respectably in the Belmont Oaks, her North American debut.  She’s been given ample time to acclimate to the Christophe Clement barn since then and is certainly eligible to improve in her second stateside start.  Her two wins in France came over extended sprint distances on all weather surfaces, so she may also appreciate the turn back in distance from a mile and a quarter.  Poetic Charm ships across the pond for Charlie Appleby and Godolphin, and while she has not been knocking heads with Europe’s most elite sophomore fillies, the daughter of Dubawi deserves respect in this spot.  Daddy Is A Legend has been competing with the elite of this division her entire career, and she has only missed the board 3 times in 9 starts.  As deep as this field is, it actually represents a bit of class relief for the daughter of Scat Daddy.  She broke her maiden over this surface a year ago, and she’s had adequate time to rebound from a subpar effort over soft ground in the Lake Placid at Saratoga.  The George Weaver trainee has just enough tactical speed to gain a forward position in this large field and rates as the top selection in this renewal of the Valley View.

Wager:  $20 WPS on Daddy Is A Legend, $1 Exacta Box with Daddy Is A Legend, Cool Beans, and Chipoleta

Race 10

Steve Asmussen isn’t a trainer known for prescribing his charges stiff breezes in the mornings.  A typical 5 furlong breeze for a horse in Asmussen’s barn will generally be in the 1:01 to 1:02 range.  Only the great ones emerge from that shedrow to consistently light up the morning work tab – Curlin, Rachel Alexandra, Gun Runner.  Given that context, a :58 and 4 gate move is definitely going to open some eyes.  That’s the recorded time for Sultry Samurai over the Keeneland surface on October 3rd.  While the track was noticeably glib that morning – the work was only the 4th fastest of 13 at the distance – the time was exceptionally fast for an unraced colt from the Steve Asmussen barn.  He’s worth a shot to strike in his debut against this maiden group.

$ 10 WPS on Sultry Samurai

Saturday, October 20th – Race 3

Sister Kitten will take a beating in the win pool for this contest amongst juvenile fillies that have yet to win a race.  On top of being trained by the pre-eminent leading turf trainer in North America, she finished 2nd behind her highly regarded stablemate, Newspaperofrecord, in her debut at the Spa.  That Irish-bred filly is now 2 for 2 after a facile score in the Miss Grillo at Belmont, and she will undoubtedly be the shortest-priced favorite on Breeders’ Cup Future Stars Friday.  This daughter of Kitten’s Joy gets a return ride from Jose Ortiz and rates as the one to beat in this maiden heat.  Hidden Facts is certainly worthy of consideration after claiming the runner-up position in her two-turn debut at Saratoga when she finished just a half length shy of a trip to the winner’s circle on that occasion.  Bee Bit is a first timer to watch as she is by turf sensation English Channel.  Norm Casse is winning at a 20% clip in his first year running his own stable, and this filly has a strong work tab to support her chances in this debut voyage.

Wager: $1 exacta box with Sister Kitten, Hidden Facts, and Bee Bit

Race 6

Taxman will take his share of betting money after a sharp stateside debut at Kentucky Downs where he bested the re-opposing Fooch.  Fooch subsequently shipped to Belmont Park and aired in a $40,000 maiden claiming event by 7 and 1/2 lengths.  Master Guns took his first start at Canterbury over a next-out winner and hails from a barn that excels with turf sprinters.  Mister Maestro is the top selection in here.  For a five and a half furlong dash on the grass, there is not much speed signed on in this race.  The son of Bernstein should be able to dictate terms up front from his outside draw.  He’s been to the winner’s circle on 6 of his 12 trips to the post and 4 of his last 5.  While this may be a step up the class ladder, no one else in this field can claim more than 2 victories to their credit.

Wager: $10 WPS on Mister Maestro, $0.50 trifecta box with Mister Maestro, Master Guns, Taxman, and Fooch

Race 8

This turf marathon is a completely paceless affair.  Jose Ortiz might be sitting on the best animal anyway, but I trust him more than the rest to figure out the pace scenario and walk the dog on the front end of this one.

Wager: $20 WP on Peru

Race 9, the Grade 2 Raven Run

This 7 furlong fall meet fixture for 3yo fillies should have an honest enough pace as Amy’s Challenge, Blamed, Moonshine Memories, and Nootka Sound all possess a nice early turn of foot.  A hotly contested pace will set the stage for several strong late runners, any of whom could emerge with a victory.  Chauncey showed vast improvement this year under the care of Lacey Gaudet and is eligible for even further improvement now making her first start for Steve Asmussen.  She rallied from well back to just miss all the money by a neck in the Charles Town Oaks in September.  Although this is certainly a step up in company, the daughter of Jimmy Creed has the right running style and her new environment could elevate her enough to compete with this group.  Alter Moon makes her second start since moving to the barn of Chad Brown.  She finished a decent 4th in the Grade 1 Test last time out, and looks to improve upon that effort today.  Kelly’s Humor claimed the show spot in the Test, just nipping Alter Moon by a nose, but coming from much further back to do it.  Brad Cox has injected some speed into her morning routine recently, and that may help her find better early positioning in this spot.  The daughter of Midnight Lute also has an encouraging 2nd place finish in the Grade 2 Beaumont over this course and distance on her resume.

Wager: $1 exacta box with Chauncey, Kelly’s Humor and Alter Moon, $0.50 trifecta box with Alter Moon, Chauncey, Kelly’s Humor and Moonshine Memories, $0.50 superfecta box with those same horses

Best of luck to everyone this weekend.  Fall is finally here and there are only a few more days of racing left in the meet, so get out and enjoy it.  If you’re going on Friday, get there early (noon EST) for an awe inspiring rendition of the national anthem performed by UK grad @_DarianSanders_ . You will be glad you did.  Follow me on Twitter @chadlashbrook for more racing insight and opinions.

Today on KSR: Our first dual-sports weekend

Photo via USAToday

Did you enjoy Thursday’s Sports Equinox? It was the first one of the 2018 year but it won’t be the last. It was a glorious night and even though Thursday was big from the professional level, it’s a Kentucky filled weekend starting tomorrow. Both UK football and basketball will compete in front of fans and all of us at KSR are pumped.

https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/-2g9_IN2p5CU/W8jzwUSFJAI/AAAAAAAAFQ8/tZliXFrmP_8OOZOtFvgAEiQ_tELM5pqOACL0BGAYYCw/h1334/62292e3d-73ea-4594-87c1-047a35d5a6b7

Quick Thursday Sports Recap:

  • Boston beat Houston 4-1 to win the American League Championship Series (4-1) and advance to its fourth World Series since 2004.
  • The Broncos thrashed the Cardinals 45-10 on Thursday Night Football. It was a trash game and allowed fans to watch other sports. Bad year to be a Cardinal playing football.
  • LeBron James and Rajon Rondo made their debuts for the Lakers in a 128-119 loss to Portland. James finished with 26 points, 12 rebounds and six assists, and Rondo finished with 13 points, 11 assists and four rebounds. Seeing Rondo in a Lakers jersey was weirder than LeBron in my opinion.
  • John Wall and the Wizards lost their NBA opener 113-112 to the Heat. Wall had a team-high 26 points to go with nine assists. Bam was pedestrian for the Heat as he finished with four points to go with nine rebounds.
  • Stanford narrowly beat Arizona State 20-13. I miss great college football games on Thursday’s but that wasn’t too shabby.

The NBA G League is shaking things up:

In the news of the day the NBA G League announced that elite high school prospects have a new professional path to the NBA.

Beginning next summer, the NBA G League will offer contracts to graduating high school seniors who are: (a) potential one-and-done talents; (b) at least 18 years old; and (c) not yet eligible for the NBA draft. The contracts will be worth $125,000 and will provide an alternate road for young stars, rather than spending a season in college basketball.

It didn’t take long for writers and analysts across the country to write/tweet that this won’t change much. Elite players can already go overseas after high school (or during) and get bigger contracts than $125k. Plus, an 18-year-old having to play against grown men generally isn’t a great thing for the kid.

You may see a player every so often jump to the NBA G League, but it won’t be a regular occurrence. Read more about it HERE.

Get Hyped:

Speaking of Vandy:

Center Drake Jackson and left tackle Naasir Watkins had a successful week of practice and both will play on Saturday. But enough about the Cats, Adam Luckett has the detailed scouting report on how you beat the Commodores.

Luckett believes Benny Snell will have a serious chance to run for over 200 yards against Vanderbilt’s defense. You can find out why HERE.

SEC Media Day:

Wednesday’s SEC Media Day didn’t produce any groundbreaking news, but nearly every coach was asked about Kentucky in some form or fashion. I pulled quotes/tidbits about what the rest of the league had to say about the Cats with a few exceptions.

The Tom Crean tidbit and is incredibly interesting.

Recruiting Visits:

Five-star wing Keion Brooks will start his official visit to Kentucky this weekend. Indiana appears to be the heavy favorite for Brooks, but there was a point where UK looked like the team to beat. The Cats are loaded at the wing but would like to add one more perimeter scorer to the 2019 class, so UK isn’t giving up just yet. This could be a make or break weekend for UK in this recruitment.

  • Vernon Carey is officially visiting Duke after seeing UK last weekend.
  • James Wiseman is on an official to Florida State. I still think it’s between UK and Memphis, but if I had to pick a third school that could land Wiseman I’d go with the Seminoles.
  • Cole Anthony will see Oregon. We haven’t heard any UK buzz in months with Anthony. He’s already visited Notre Dame and UNC.
  • Isaiah Stewart will see Michigan State, a place he’s already visited. It seems UK and Stewart have moved on in different directions.
  • UK target Oscar Tshiebwe will announce on Saturday via Twitter. He said he was telling the staffs on Wednesday, but I haven’t heard anything. Still, all signs point towards WVU.
  • Aidan Igiehon will announce today. It will almost certainly be UofL. He will be a great addition for UofL, but the Cats never offered.

Blue/White Game Weekend:

While UK basketball will play in front of fans this weekend (2 p.m. Sunday at Rupp Arena), I know it’s a stretch to call it a dual sports weekend. But, we haven’t gotten to see much of this team play since the Bahamas so any opportunity to see them go full-speed is interesting to me.

The biggest thing is to get out of Sunday’s scrimmage healthy, but besides that here are three things that I want to see:

  1. Three-pointers made: Maybe I’m a little snake-bit since the streak ended last season, but the Cats weren’t great from behind the arc in 2017-2018. UK should be better this season but I still have a concern that Kentucky is filled with good three-point shooters and no one is elite. I hope I’m proven wrong.
  2. Who’s the point guard: Many thought Ashton Hagans would be UK’s starting point guard but Immanuel Quickley looked better in the Bahamas and folks close to the program have raved about his practices. Hagans is the the better defensive option but I’m anxious to see how far along he’s come offensively. Also, will Quade Green basically play the two as Quickley/Hagans battle out point guard duties?
  3. E.J. Montgomery: I don’t want to see anything specific from Montgomery, but I want to see how he competes against a variation of P.J. Washington, Sophomore Nick Richards and Reid Travis. Depending on the teams/matchups it will probably be the toughest frontcourt Montgomery faces all season. Both Travis and Washington spoke highly of Montgomery’s game in Birmingham on Wednesday, praising his versatility and how he can do different things, but the Big Blue Nation is ready to see it in person.

Opening Weekend for Halloween:

The 82 percent on Rotten Tomato isn’t ideal, but I guess it could be worse. I love horror movies (any recommendations?), so I’ve been looking forward to this since I saw the trailer. Nothing will ever top the trailer, and I’m sure I’ll be disappointed, but it’s October, Halloween is 12 days away and Michael Myers is BACK. I’ll definitely be seeing it this weekend.


G League vs. College: Questions every young star should ask themselves

Beginning next summer, some of the nation’s elite high school basketball stars will be given an opportunity to sign a one-year, $125,000 deal with the NBA G League, rather than going on to play college basketball. It’s a huge development in the sport and a tempting alternative to the one-and-done path.

But before the chosen prospects decide to take the money or head off to college, they need to ask themselves these seven important questions:

 

Am I physically ready to play against grown ass men?

Last year the average age of players in the G League not under an NBA contract was 25 years old. Those are grown men in peak physical shape with many years experience.

With the exception of Zion Williamson, who may not be human, 18 year olds are nowhere near ready, physically, to match up with that each and everyday. In a year’s time with proper training, maybe so, but they’ll be expected to muscle up with the big boys only four or five months removed from their high school graduation. And most of them would get beat all to hell against that physical maturity, no matter how good they project to be on down the road.

Do I want to live in a one-bedroom apartment in Sioux Falls?

Here’s a list of all of the current G League cities:

Wilmington, Delaware
Uniondale, New York
Portland, Maine
Mississauga, Ontario
White Plains, New York
Canton, Ohio
Fort Wayne, Indiana
Walker, Michigan
Hoffman Estates, Illinois
Oshkosh, Wisconsin
Washington D.C.
Erie, Pennsylvania
Greensboro, North Carolina
Lakeland, Florida
Western Conference
Des Moines, Iowa
Southaven, Mississippi
Oklahoma City, Oklahoma
Sioux Falls, South Dakota
Ontario, California
Prescott Valley, Arizona
Santa Cruz, California
El Segundo, California
Stockton, California
Cedar Park, Texas
Edinburg, Texas
Taylorsville, Utah
Frisco, Texas

One of those places will be home; the others will be your travel destinations.

Am I ready to ride a bus?

G League teams bus to games that are within a six-hour drive each way. In some cases, it makes for long, exhausting road trips. When they fly, they have early connector flights and always sit coach.

At a place like Kentucky, you fly private. You fly private everywhere. You also stay in four- and five-star hotels; not whatever is off the nearest exit.

Would I rather be a superstar on a basketball-thirsty college campus or the 18-year-old eating alone at the Applebee’s off I-90 in Erie because the Bayhawks have a night off?

Without going into the obvious benefits of being a John Wall or an Anthony Davis or a Devin Booker or a Tyler Herro on a college campus, just think of the significant differences in the two lifestyles for that one year before the draft.

It’s college campus versus blue-collar town. Thousands of people your age versus nothing to do.

I can’t even imagine the difference in the Tinder opportunities.

Do I want to play on national TV or on YouTube?

Last year Kentucky had more nationally-televised games than the entire G League combined. The nine playoff games and finals were only able to get a spot on ESPNU.

G League games are shown on YouTube, Facebook Live, Twitch and, very rarely, on NBATV. Now that may change with the addition of big names, but it will never compare to the audience that watches college basketball’s elite programs each and every night.

Which is better for my brand?

One of the most attractive aspects of the G League deal is the ability to capitalize on one’s own likeness and sign marketing deals. In the short term, it’s great for bringing in income.

But let’s say a player goes to Kentucky, is idolized by an entire fan base, and becomes a household name nationwide for lighting up college basketball. How much is the likeness worth then? What is the shoe deal worth then?

A lot more than it was worth right out of high school before moving to Maine to play in the G League.

What’s my backup plan?

In theory, the path from G League to NBA seems great. But in reality, it won’t be easy and many (93 percent, Calipari says) will fall short of reaching Step 2 in the path: the NBA.

If that were to happen, what’s Plan B? Straight to Europe? Keep riding the buses in the G League on a new deal for significantly less money? It’s too late to go to college to play basketball and have your education paid for, so school is out of the question. So what do you do?

Calipari has said they’ll be “roadkill,” left behind with no one to care for them. He told ESPN, “The 93 percent that don’t make it, give me the demographic of that group. We really want to do that to those kids? I’m not. I’m standing on a mountaintop saying no.” He offered up a solution, but there’s not one in place right now.

So if these players don’t ask themselves anything else, they at least need to ask themselves if they’re ready for what’s next if the NBA doesn’t want them after one year. Because it’s going to happen to a lot of them.


NBA G League to offer new option for one-and-done talents

The NBA will soon go after elite high school prospects with a new “professional path” to the league, according to a new story on ESPN.com.

Beginning next summer, the NBA G League will offer contracts to graduating high school seniors who are: (a) potential one-and-done talents; (b) at least 18 years old; and (c) not yet eligible for the NBA draft. The contracts will be worth $125,000 and will provide an alternate road for young stars, rather than spending a season in college basketball.

This professional alternative would allow players to hire agents, pursue marketing deals, profit off their own likeness — all things the NCAA does not allow — as well as develop in an NBA system with several off-court programs available, including the use of NBA facilities and training.

G League president Malcolm Turner told ESPN they will not pursue any players who are already committed to college basketball programs; although, if a player were to decommit on their own terms, they could then be targeted.

Should a player choose to take this route, they will be restricted to playing only one season on a G League Select Contract. They would then become automatically eligible for the next year’s draft.
