1. Quick update on where UK ranks on the recruiting lists: Scout.com now ranks the Cats as having the 14th best class in the country after adding 4-star Kevin Galloway. That ranks behind Florida, Mississippi St., and Alabama but ahead of LSU in the Top 25. That gives the SEC 5 teams in the Top 25, while the ACC has 6, Big East with 5, Pac-10 with 5, Big Ten with 2, Big 12 with 1, and the WAC with 1.
2. Interesting article by John Clay about the relationship between Bill Keightley and Rick Pitino, and how it never declined after Pitino took the UL job. Clay suggests maybe UK fans can learn something from Keightley. I agree with him.
3. The Baseball Cats took down my beloved Hilltoppers yesterday 7-3 behind Collin Cowgill’s 2 homeruns. That moves the Cats to 23-4 on the season heading into the weekend series against last place Mississippi St. Kentucky has now won all 18 games at home this season. By the way, WKU beat Louisvile 10-5 on Tuesday, dropping the Cards to 14-10 on the year. Really used that CWS appearance well Cards.
4. Holy freakin cow John Calipari!! Your team has been doubted all season, people talk about how undisciplined and unlikeable your guys were, how you had criminals all through your program, and instead of it affecting you negatively, you shoved it down’s everyone’s throat and were the 2nd most impressive team in the tournament. But, your team just couldn’t handle success, as a player couldn’t follow team rules leading up to the biggest game in all your lives. Losing Andre Allen ain’t exactly gonna hurt you bad, but Memphis needed all the good press it could get, instead it gets this. Just think, talk was Calipari was a candidate for the UK job. Thank god that didn’t happen.
5. Absolutely one of the coolest videos I have ever seen. A high school wrestler with no arms or legs, and he still whips this guy and pins him. And if you think this match was a fluke, the kid, Dustin Carter, was 41-3 during the season. AMAZING!!!
