Digger Phelps Fan of the Day Wants Afternoon Notes and Podcast

Digger looks thrilled to be taking this photo with an enthusiastic Kentucky fan. Listen to me! LISTEN-TO-ME!!!!

— Kentucky just wrapped up its open practice, and just like the other open practices, it was a whole bunch of nothing. This time, however, we did get a small glimpse as to how they will handle shooting in the dome. Everyone seemed to do well for the most part, especially Coach Robic, but we really won’t know until tomorrow night when the dome is full. One thing that stood out to me was MKG working alone on one end with Coach Payne while everyone else played knockout on the other end. MKG was working hard right around the basket for about 20 minutes.

Anthony Davis looks fine. Don’t worry about that knee.

— I was standing right outside the tunnel when the team walked out so I got to see all of their faces when they got their first look at the Superdome. Everyone — from Miller to Long — looked shocked at the Superdome and the setup. The look on their faces was one of shock, amazement, excitement, and holy-s***-this-place-is-big, all wrapped up into one expression.

— This is how Jarrod Polson was introduced before today’s open practice:

Brad Calipari had a great tweet this morning that has since been taken down. It went like this:

Teague > Siva
Lamb > Smith
Gilchrist > Kuric
Jones > Behanan
Davis > Dieng
Wiltjer > Swopshire
Miller > Smith
Polson > Justice
Dad > Rick

Well said, young man.

— On today’s radio show, Matt and I talked about the game and told a story about Rick Bozich that makes us look like the professional ones.

Go Cats.

    If KY does not shoot good from 3 point rand and davis gets into early foul trouble then I believe KY gets beat!!

    MKG gonna post him up some Kyle Kuric or whoever has the misfortune of guarding him! Put some pressure on Dieng too, get his butt on the bench.

    5 – and UK doesn’t play any defense, and UL can actually score, and Saturn moves closer to earth and and…

    Last time, we turned the ball over 21 times, shot 29.8%, had players in foul trouble and were up 13 before Russ Smith’s two garbage 3s. Cal will have this team ready and they will put forth the effort needed to win.

    3.) Are you that homphobic that you seriously had to come on a UK SPORTS blog message board to say that. Who cares if he’s gay, you obviously liked the show before you knew. If you found out Kate Upton was a lesbo would you not like her too?

    15 – answer: we would love her even more.

    I would still like Kate Upton if she was lesbo. 🙂

    Put up a link to the proof that Davis took any money – and not just a hit piece by a hack journalist.

    Bye, Jerry. Your comments don’t belong on this site for several reasons. Now, reply again with something that further reveals your trollmanship. UK 72 UL 60.

    Yes, Brad Calipari talks some smack on Twitter! I bet the players love him even more now. (And I bet Cal had a few words for his son first thing this morning.)

    The guy must have been drunk or high because Digger is the best example of being an idiot in the human race. Why would you want that picture taken. He is just a mistake of nature.
