Three quick things before I go to sleep….
— I stood with Dicky Lyons during the end of the 4th Quarter and he was confident about his return to the field. I will say that Dicky portrays a guy that is maybe a little bit off and not completely into it, but stand next to him and you see a different side. He diagnosed problems as they occurred, picked out holes in the South Carolina defense and sounded like a top-level college color guy. He is a bright and knowledgable player….which I think explains his success.
— I will have some more thoughts on Madness later, but I do love this team’s togetherness. Whether this team has the talent may be up in the air, but this is the closest-knit group I have seen at UK since I have been covering them. That is a huge component to success and I think will pay huge divedends.
— No word on the Orton visit, but we are tentatively scheduled to talk to him on Monday and he is set to be on the radio show on Tuesday. Stay tuned tomorrow night and Monday for any updates.
Sunday and Monday could be big days…..stay tuned….
