It is very late and I have been distracted tonight, so just a few quick notes…..
(1): To the extent that there is news today, it comes from Micah Johnson’s Facebook status, which reads:
Micah Johnson got a 3rd-5thrnd grade easily early 3rd with good work out! BUT Im still commin back! i will help make history! BCS in 09!Imma b the best LB in the country!!
If you believe Facebook status (and why wouldnt you), it is a good sign for a Micah return.
(2): KC Ross-Miller comes to town this Saturday night, playing in a high school game at Memorial Coliseum. Lexington Catholic plays at 6:30 and then Ross-Miller and his boys play at 8 pm. A good chance to see the future Cat up close and personal and get your own read on his ability after the UK-Vandy game.
(3): Former Cat Dermontti Dawson was named a Hall of Fame finalist today. Along with 9 other guys, Dawson has the potential to be put into a class that could include guys Cris Carter, among others. Dawson is a great and often forgotten member of UK’s football past and I am pulling for him to get the honor.
(4): If you watched the Arkansas-Texas game tonight, you may have very well felt like you were watching a Kentucky contest. John Pelphrey of course coaches the Hogs (with a bright red jacket), and three of the top 6 guys in the rotation nearly came to Kentucky, with Courtney Fortson, Rotnei Clarke and Michael Sanchez. Fortson especially looks impressive, leading the Hogs to victory as a Freshman point guard. It will be interesting to see how the two teams look when they play in Fayetteville later this year.
More all day today as we have an interview with a former Cat by Beisner, a look at the Vandy game coming Saturday and more nonsense. Stay tuned….
