Bill Clinton Wants Afternoon Notes and Podcast

Bill Clinton was in Rupp Arena earlier today to speak to high school students about sustainability and green living. One of our fine cameramen from cn|2 was in the building and he captured Clinton giving three goggles to the crowd. Some may say Clinton was showing the crowd a nose hair he plucked before taking the stage, but at KSR we make our own facts and I’m saying he did the three goggles.

— First and foremost, where did Nerlens Noel get this mask?

And can he wear it during games?

— The news of Mark Lyons transferring out of Xavier is big time for college basketball. Lyons was one of the better guards in the country last season and he’ll make an immediate impact wherever he ends up. The early favorite in that sweepstakes is Arizona, thanks to Lyons’ relationship with Sean Miller. Miller recruited Lyons to Xavier out of high school in New York and was the head coach for the Musketeers during the point guard’s redshirt freshman season. Lyons hasn’t scheduled any visits yet, but he said he has received major interest from Arizona, Kentucky, and Kansas since announcing his transfer on Facebook this past weekend.

— 2012 forward Amile Jefferson told The Times-Herald in Pennsylvania that he is working to set a date for his decision now. Jefferson hopes to make and announce his decision by next week. He is considering the Cats, Duke, and NC State.

— After winning the series against top-ranked LSU, Kentucky baseball is back to the No. 1 spot in the Collegiate Baseball poll. The Bat Cats will play at Louisville tomorrow night.

— Arkansas football continued its theme of hiring former Louisville guys by acquiring the services of one John L. Smith. Smith was the head coach of the Cardinals from 1998 to 2002 before former Arkansas coach and motorcycle enthusiast Bobby Petrino held the job. Smith left Louisville for Michigan State and didn’t tell his players that he had accepted the new job until halftime of Louisville’s bowl game against Marshall.

— Look at this! Jorts with the steal!

And he got blocked.

— Daniel Orton committed five personal fouls in just 11 minutes of action for Orlando in the overtime loss to the Jazz over the weekend. After the game, Magic coach Stan Van Gundy threw Orton under the bus, then backed over him, pulled forward, backed over him again, and then took off. “Daniel gave us nothing,” Van Gundy said. “He went for every shot fake, he fouled every time. He didn’t even give us minutes that we needed to give our starters some rest. Our lack of depth was an absolute huge factor. Those guys ran out of gas at the end.” Orton said he completely understands his coach’s comments and the harsh criticism was deserved.

— The CATSPYs are tonight. Who ya got???

— On this morning’s radio show, Matt discussed Nerlens Noel’s weekend in Lexington, the Blue/White football game, and UK baseball making noise in the bluegrass. Have a listen…

    Not defending Orton because he did to us what he did. However, Van Gundy is a Twerp and should never berate his players publicly. He is full of his lardass self. Me no likey!!!!

    Everytime I have seen Orton play he looks like a lost ball in high weeds in the NBA.

    Van Gundy did not want to draft Orton in the first place … now VG is on the outs and probably doesn’t care much about what people think about him

    I have only a little love for Daniel, but SVG is a joke. He knows he is on his way and doesn’t care one bit about what he says.

    That’s the Jorts “highlight” you choose?? Seriously? I haven’t seen a clip of Jorts on here for a few months or more and you go with this one…Seriously Drew, go find some good clips of our boy and give him some redemption!! Show him some love!!

    Sacramento Kings have 4th and 34th pick. They could conceivably pick up MKG and Darius Miller. Could you imagine:

    PG: Tyreke Evans
    SG: Darius Miller
    SF: MKG
    PF: Chuck Hayes
    C: Cousins

    An all UK/Calipari team!!!

    Fouling 5 times in 11 minutes is actually hard to do….congrats Orton.

    Clinton is a womanizer – always has been – no respect for the man and don’t understand why everyone thinks he is so great – he can take his liberal views back to Arkansas

    @13 – I tried something like that once in Boston and we all know how that turned out.

    A source is telling me not to be surprised if Tubby Smith is the next coach at Va Tech.

    Cal can handle guys with “character issues.” If he thinks Lyons would fit on the team and play hard, go get him. Gonna be hard to beat Miller, though. He’s been recruiting like crazy at Arizona already. Cal’s best argument will probably be “win a title here and be drafted.”

    Van Gundy is an idiot on his way out. They’ve had Orton 2 years, and while he’s been injured, if they haven’t gotten more out of him, it’s because their coaching staff and organization suck. That’s why they’re still going to lose Dwight, just like they lost Shaq.

    John L. Smith to Arkansas? Are they required to hire only former Card coaches who are also royal buttholes that bring embarassment to their schools?

    Virtually ever significant accomplishment that Clinton now claims were things that he fought against until the Republican Congress forced him to relent on (welfare reform, balanced budget, etc).

    That UK mask is SO much better than the Black Hawks hat he was wearing all weekend. Nerlens is a rock star.

    Jorts could have had the steal and a big assist. Seemed like he looked right at the trailing player who was begging for the ball, but he tries the layup instead.
