1. JB HOLMES SELECTED TO RYDER CUP TEAM (Is this the first UK player to make the Ryder Cup team? I dont know, why dont you research it)
2. It’s amazing how, in 2 years, the recruiting landscape of UK Football has so dramatically changed. I would say 2 years ago, UK would only have serious consideration from 1 or 2 of the top 150 players in the country yearly, and rarely would they get any of them. Now, just take a look at scout.com player rankings. The Cats have already landed Morgan Newton and Ryan Mossakowski, not to mention the 2nd rated center in the country Sam Simpson, and have another 4 guys still considering the Cats who are 4 or 5 star:
Hayo Carpenter: *****JUCO WR, 5’11” 175 lbs., 4.37 40-yard dash
Justin Brown: ****WR, 6’3” 215 lbs., 4.48 40-yard dash
Cornellius Carradine: ****DE, 6’4” 230 lbs., Cincinnati, OH
Terrance Lloyd: ****DE, 6’3” 215 lbs., Houston, TX
Up to this point, Kentucky has One 5-star, One 4-star, Ten 3-star, and Six 2-star. And since this week is being used to crush the Cardinals as much as possible, they only have One 3-star, and Five 2-star kids commited. Thats right, only 6 commits right now, while UK has pulled in 19. More comparison: UK has Twelve 3-star and better, UL has ONE!!!! The gap is widening, and so long as Joker Phillips doesn’t turn into Steve Kragthorpe, UK should hold on to that Governor’s Cup trophy for a while.
5. Yeah, Tennessee is right on the verge of being an SEC power again (losing to a 4th or 5th place PAC-10 team really looks good for you)
