We thought we had seen it all when the planking craze swept the Internet, but now four guys at Purdue have taken it to the next level with “Batmanning” – the act of hanging upside down. I guess when you go to Purdue, it’s either hang upside in parking garages or hang out at bars with a bunch of a dudes. I’d be Batmanning too.
— Joker met with the media today in his regular Monday afternoon appearance in Commonwealth Stadium. Our KSR intern should be by any minute now with a write-up from the presser, but I’ll hit a few notes before he arrives:
— Matt Roark is listed behind Brian Adams on the depth chart. Aaron Boyd is behind that. #FreeHim
— Matt Smith and Billy Joe Murphy won’t practice tomorrow. These two need to get healthy ASAP.
— Joker tipped his hat to Louisville’s offense and pointed out that the Cardinals out-gained FIU in the loss.
— Lots and lots of Josh Clemons praise.
— He said they’ll look to utilize the shotgun formation more to give Newton opportunities to run the ball.
— More later.
— On the other side of the rivalry, Charlie Strong doesn’t seem too confident in his team entering the Governor’s Cup. “We’re going to go face a team now that is a very good football team. I don’t know if we can beat Kentucky right now,” he said. I’m not so sure Charlie and I have been watching the same Kentucky games. I like his attitude, though.
— If you’re looking for some good afternoon television, Louisville killer Stevie Johnson will be on SportsCenter today at 3:40. He filmed a bit for KSTV at 12:30. Priorities.
— In basketball news, 2012 recruit Kaleb Tarczewski scheduled two official visits and Kentucky is not one of them. The 7-footer will visit Kansas this weekend and then Arizona next weekend before making his final decision. Those two have long been the leaders for his services and it looks like he’ll end up with one of them. Tarczewski is/was also considering North Carolina and Kentucky.
— I’d like to wish a big Happy Birthday to our man Josh Hopkins. Beisner already called dibs on the spankings.
