Donald Williams’ Tuesday News and Views

donald-williams-kentucky

Good morning, KSR!  You’ll have to excuse me if I’m a little excited this morning.  This day packs a lot of joy for your third-favorite blogger as we not only close the books on the longest month of my blogging life, but also get set for a basketball game that marks the triumphant return of a forgotten Cat of yesteryear.  When someone finally writes the epic tale of Billy Gillispie’s years at UK, it will be filled with secondary characters and names that make you scratch your head.  While many of Clyde’s scrappy Cats have faded to black, Ole Miss brings Donald Williams back into the fold this evening in Oxford.  Williams, who famously played for a high school whose mascot was the Kittens, has improved on his zero appearances in one season as a Cat and posted 12 points this season for the Rebels.  More importantly, in being a 22-year old sophomore, he also is making guys like my friend Ray feel better about dragging their academic feet.  So, tonight, make sure you take some time to salute Donald Williams and don’t feel bad when he’s on the receiving end of a beating.  He’s used to it.  He played for Gillispie.

Now onto some other UK notes…

 – As is rarely the case around these parts, the biggest news from a Monday came from the football program as word broke that Ryan Mossakowski is handing in his blue and white fatigues and moving on from “Operation: Win”.  Given Mossakowski’s lofty ranking and the way getting a top quarterback out of Texas was celebrated, his decision to leave left many, including myself, disappointed.  The truth is, though, his transfer can only be ruled a disappointment if Morgan Newton is truly unable to be the starting quarterback.  And despite the staff’s insistence that the position would be open for competition, there was no real indication that Mossakowski was the guy to lead the team or that he would even get that chance.  No matter how strong the belief from the fans that he could throw the ball over them mountains (myself included) or how impressed we were with all of the quarterbacking intangibles (leadership, command of the huddle) he seemed to bring to the table on paper (seriously, I love him), the guys evaluating the situation on a daily basis never deemed him ready to take snaps.  When Morgan Newton was piecing together an awful Compass Bowl performance, Mossakowski never even got his arm warm.  That says a lot about where they thought he was in his development.  The staff made their bed with Morgan Newton and now they’re going to be forced to snuggle up in it, whether he’s ready to play at a high level or not.  If he breaks out and plays like many expect he’s capable of, this becomes a forgettable footnote in the history of “Operation: Win”.  If not, it’s going to be a fall full of BTI’s “Mossakowski Watch”.  Best case scenario:  both guys thrive in leading their teams next year.  Signed, Captain Obvious.

 – For his part, Joker Phillips released a statement through UK’s media relations department.  It simply read, “We want to thank Ryan for contributions to the program and we wish him the best.”  That’s only slightly less personal than the statement Matt released when Maggard stopped writing for KSR.

 – On a final Mossakowski note, think about this:  In the recruiting classes between 2007 and 2009, UK landed five four-star recruits, based on Rivals’ rankings.  They were DJ Stafford, Aaron Boyd, Mossakowski, DeQuin Evans and Chris Matthews.  Does that say more about Rivals’ rankings or UK’s staff?  Given the staff’s success in developing two and three stars, I’m leaning toward evaluations.  Of course, the coaches evaluated them too, I guess.  It’s like the chicken and egg debate, but with more disappointment.

 – The news for the basketball future was a little more cheery Monday as five-star shooting guard Ricardo Ledo backed off his verbal to Providence just a month after pledging his verbal.  The 6’5 Ledo, rated as the #7 player in the country by Rivals, picked the Friars just days before he was scheduled to visit both UK and U of L and take in the New Year’s Eve beat-down by the Cats.  Now, it appears that the two in-state programs will duke it out for his services as expected, with UConn believed to be a player as well.  The Cards have five-star point guard Rodney Purvis, who has a “brotherly” relationship with Ledo working in their favor.  The Cats have everything else. 

 – With the Cats set to take on a severely over-matched Ole Miss team in Oxford Tuesday night, in Oxford, the majority of Coach Cal’s media time was spent talking about what he expects from his own team in order to improve in the long run.  Calipari spoke quite a bit about getting more from his veteran players as the trio has flipped a bit lately with Darius Miller coming on strong and Josh Harrellson and DeAndre Liggins encountering some struggles.  Calipari acknowledged that Darius Miller might be playing too many minutes and that could be contributing to him finding patches of ineffectiveness and you have to wonder how that plays out on the roster as a whole.  The team only goes six-deep right now, but when you consider that those six players are three freshmen and three guys playing more than they have at any point in their career (Miller only slightly more), you have to wonder if fatigue is playing into it a bit for everyone.  You hear a lot from people far smarter than me that these kids are conditioned for years to play heavy loads of minutes, but it doesn’t seem far-fetched to think that the lack of depth is having at least a little bit of an effect on the trio of veterans.  Of course, Coach Cal disagrees with that.  He might know a little better.

 – Another repeated topic of discussion was his team’s execution, to which Cal offered some surprising praise after being critical last week.  Cal told the media Monday that this team executes better than last year’s squad.  They just don’t have the same players, which is the difference.  However, he tempered that praise a bit by noting that they have not been able to put an entire 40 minutes together yet and if they figure it out, they’re going to be a nightmare for any team in the tournament.  Again, you have to wonder if the difference in being able to put together that full 40 minutes is another player being able to contribute some positive minutes and keep legs fresh for the main rotation guys.  Again, Calipari believes they are fine with six.  And he’s a smart dude.

 – In case you haven’t heard, Ole Miss will host a “Red Out” for their game against Kentucky.  Unlike the other “white out” or “black out” games the Cats have faced on the road, Ole Miss will not hand out t-shirts or ask their fans to wear special attire.  They’re just being asked to face away from the court.

 – After a two-day period of The Good Doctor’s “Larry Brown Gate” saga, Monday’s media session brought a humorous exchange between Coach Cal and Joe B. Hall.  As Cal met with the media, Coach Hall entered and was told by Cal to make sure he didnt’ coach any of the kids, to which Hall responded, “I know.  Tipton is here.”  Gentleman John Clay has video of the interaction on his blog.

 – After a rush of new Twitter followers following the revelation of KSR reader/listener Dustin that he was telling people he committed to UK, 2013 big man Tyrek Coger clarified on Twitter and said that he was just pulling our big blue leg.  Coger had this to say: “Tyrek Coger is not committed.  It was a joke…sorry UK fans” before again asking for forgiveness and asking for you to remain true to your follow.  I know what you’re thinking.  Third person?  Who does he think he is?  God’s Gift?

 – Sure, the Cards might have lost, but it was an especially tough night to be Peyton Siva.  Louisville’s flavor of the month scored only five points (all in the second half) and committed eight – yes eight – turnovers in the Cards’ loss to Georgetown.  Even worse, rumors began circulating that his father could be the offspring of Handsome Jimmy and the cook from 50 First Dates.

 – Keeping with the spirit of our founder, my wife made me watch The Bachelor tonight.  It was my first time watching the super goober sort through floozies (no disrespect) and I could only come away with one thought.  That guy has more Kige Ramsey mannerisms about him than I think Kige does.  I think we should push for him to be the next Bachelor. 

 – On a final note, there might be no greater trend in college athletics over the past few seasons than the giant heads on a stick that continue to pop up at arenas and stadiums.  It also got me thinking of a huge opportunity for the game against Tennessee February 8.  We need to find a way to fill the student section with giant cutouts of Bruce Pearl on a cell phone with some sort of message like “Wanna chat?” or something better.  Probably something better. If you’re a company that would like to work with us on that (translation:  pay for it and do the work), let me know.  It must be done.

That’s it for now.  Stay tuned throughout the day as we get you all set for Ole Miss and we pour out a little bit more for Donald Williams and Ryan Mossakowski.  As usual, Matt and Zach get it going on Talk Radio 1080 at 10am.  In the meantime, make sure you listen to the podcast from Saturday night if you haven’t done so already.

    I’m just going to throw this out there. Please dont jump all over me. Hopefully the mods wont remove this comment. But what if Joker playing Newton over Moss was a race issue. Maybe joker was pushing Newton to be the future and Moss got put on the backburner. Im not saying our coach is racist, and this is purely speculation. But maybe Joker and Newton are a little closer, and coach is a little bias. Maybe he sees some of Andre Woodson in him and thinks he can become that type of quarterback. Maybe he can.

    But here is something to think about. Joker came on in 2002 with brooks as a “recruiting coordinator and WR coach. 2004 he became offensive coodinator, and his recruit, Shane Boyd was our QB. 2005, Boyd graduated and our next QB is Andre Woodson. We get 3 years of that, his last 2 being pretty good. Then only because Curtis Pulley gets kicked off the team, Hartline becomes our QB literally by default, and he shares alot of his time with Randall Cobb. Being very undermanned at wide receiver, Cobb switches to WR, but is used heavily in Wildcat formation as the QB. Hartline struggles, and recruit Morgan Newton is deemed to be the savior. Is anyone else seeing the trend? My UK football history is limited by my age, but I cant remember a single african-american UK QB before Boyd. And we’ve had 4 (5 if you include Pulley) in the last 8 years since Joker took over as offensive coordinator. Of course thats partly a sign of the times, but maybe Joker, who was a QB himself in high-school, is vicariously pushing for these kids to succeed. Again, this is ALL speculation. I know i’m taking giant leaps here but its interesting to think about. And, it will be interesting to see how the two QB recruits we have coming in pan out. Ill just say i’m putting my money on Cobbins.

    10) just a sign of the times I think, he started and played Hartline this year & it turned
    out to be the right call. With all the pressure from the UK fan base to play Newton, he stuck
    with the right QB. Going forward we will see, but I think race is a non factor in any of
    his decisions ……..

    Joker doesn’t care. He has his man. Just hope joker recruits some 15 foot giants with increible jumping ability to catch Netwon’s passes.

    Everybody keeps talking about Moss’s arm strength not being that good after surgery, but Joker pass plays are 5 yard dinkaroos.

    Hey 10 way to make an ass of yourself! What are you fifteen years old have you ever herd of Derrick Ramsey, Pookie Jones, or Antonio Ferrell! This is the kind of foolish talk that gives the state a bad name! Fans were calling for Newton to play over Hartline all year and Joker played the best man for the job. When he took over the program he down played race every chance he got he wants to be looked at as a good coach not just an African American Coach!

    I watched Newton play in High School. The kid was absolutely amazing. Great athletic ability, great decision making, and ability to make plays under pressure. It is sad to see that he has gotten so little attention from the coaching staff at UK. Same for Mossakowski…the kid has great talent and leadership, HUGE UPSIDE. Put them both in this slow, crappy offense…and guess what…

    However, it seems that so far under Joker’s reign players have actually regressed. Brooks was great at making players better (at multiple positions) and getting the most out of them. It is sad to see that these two guys haven’t gotten even better, because they should have gotten better if they were getting any good coaching at all. I understand the frustration of both Newton and Mossakowski. Stuck behind Hartline all last year…the year was going down hill…and Hartline had no upside at all. He sucked, and the only reason his stats were good is because our receiving core turned a two yard catch into 8+ yard plays by breaking multiple tackles.

    18 – I agree. Ramsey was sort of the first Randall Cobb, except Ramsey never bothered to run around anyone. He just ran over them from the single wing. That was easily the best UK team I’ve even seen.

    I agree 18 Ramsey was an animal while at UK. A lot of linebacker’s eyes got as big as wagon wheels when they saw him comming at them. But let me ask one thing. Is this going from “Operation win” to Operation Gone? I wish Moss the best, and as long as I’m wishing I wish Newton to have a BREAKOUT year!



  26. Kidnut

    I haven’t seen one credible source mention that Mossakowski was looking better than Newton. Can anyone link anything? All I see is conjecture by people who seem to have an axe to grind with Joker and the current football regime.

    Can someone please tell me why these freaking idiots keep implying that Hartline followed Pulley?????????? Hartline became the QB after Woodson. I am pretty sure Hartline was not even in the mix when Pulley was on campus.

    Race is not an issue in this case because like previous posters have mentioned UK has had black QB’s before. I, for one, would have liked to have seen Pulley play. He was a guy that could run, throw, and make plays (I seen him a lot in HS, because I worked in Hoptown and went to games). But, he screwed up! Plus, Woodson’s mom is white. So, toss that theory.

    I would rather see Joker go after the Smith kid, who’s also a black qb, and start him right away over Newton. That would help with recruiting in the future as if to say look, Strong went to Florida to get “his guy,” but if you are a great qb in this state you can start at UK. Wednesday is the biggest day in Joker’s life. If he fails to secure Davis and can’t get Dawson to commit the future of Operation: Win becomes Operation: When is it over??

    In order for Morgan Newton to be at this best the offensive coaches need to build an offense, similar to Cam Newton’s, that is more suited to him. This old Tennessee offense, that got Randy Travis fired from there, has got to go. Newton could be very good if coached up. My question is can this group of coaches do it.

    For those of you like #10 Dubowski, who want to insinuate that race played an issue on the RM transfer. I have 2 questions for you. 1)Why did Joker put his neck on the line at the start of his first season as HC going against popular opinion, take a beating from the fans and media, and make Hartline as opposed to Newton his QB? 2)Have you ever met or talked to Joker’s wife?

    Dubowski, I think it you are limited by more than age 🙂 As far as other black QB’s before Joker became a coach at UK, What about D Ramsey, Larry McCrimmon, Terry Henry, Antonio O’Ferral, Pookie Jones, etc

    Morgan Newton is now the man and will get all the reps between now and the first game. This is probably a blessing in the long run. I don’t blame Ryan, I just wish him the best and hope for the best for KY next year. It is now up to our coaches to make it work. Get past the blame and race has no part in this what so ever!

    I do not like the way coaches play only one quarterback and have no one with game experience to back them up. One day we will face a situation where our quarterback gets hurt and we have no one experienced to take over.



  36. SavannahCat
    9:46 am February 1, 2011 Permalink

    I don’t blame Ryan leaving, nor do I think UK has mishandled this. Football is all about signing as many good players as possible. Look at the QBs in that class….not alot of Mannings. Hartline was an ahole, but he was by far our best option and you don’t screw over seniors.



  37. Joe
    9:54 am February 1, 2011 Permalink

    10, What you’ve just said is one of the most insanely idiotic things I have ever heard. At no point in your rambling, incoherent response were you even close to anything that could be considered a rational thought. Everyone in this room is now dumber for having listened to it. I award you no points, and may God have mercy on your soul.

    Now, let’s see, I’m not sure what year the SEC integrated, but here are a few UK QBs who I know happened to be African-American:

    1) Derrick Ramsey. QB in 1976 and 1977, led UK to a 19-4 record over those two years. Of course, you probably think this was because Fran Curci was a racist and Mike Deaton should have been the starter.

    2) Larry McCrimmon was the leading passer in 1978 and 1980, and 3) Terry Henry was the leading passer in 1979. So that was actually five years running when UK had a starting QB who was African-American.

    4) Pookie Jones started from 1991-1993. He led UK to a bowl game, and played over various and sundry white QBs. Of course, you probably think that Bill Curry was a racist too.

    5) Antonio O’Ferral started in 1994, over three different white QBs. Of course, that team was terrible, which you probably would blame on the racism that would cause O’Ferral to start.

    6) Guy Morris actually gave Boyd the starting job in 2001 for about half the season. Lorenzen became the starter again only once Boyd had basically played his way out of the job.

    So there you are, in the 25 years leading up to Shane Boyd being the QB at Kentucky, Kentucky’s starting QB was an African-American in nine of those years.

    Now, let’s talk Joker. Joker became OC in 2005, and started Woodson over Curtis Pulley. Since they’re both African-American, hard to see the racism there. If there was any, maybe it was in recruiting. (Of course, those racist coaches did a great job almost getting former Pitt QB Bill Stull, despite his whiteness, who had committed and then changed his mind to Pitt at the last minute).

    In 2006 and 2007, Woodson continued to start. Pulley was the backup in 2006, and Hartline was in 2007. If you’re trying to tell me that Woodson starting over Hartline was racism, well, that’s worse than your original idea.

    In 2008, Hartline started. Cobb did share some time, which I assure you was due to the fact that Hartline was, how to be charitable, not very good. Cobb won the Mississippi State game, almost beat Georgia, and made all the plays at WR to get Kentucky past Arkansas. Hartline did okay against Little Sisters of the Poor and in the Bowl.

    So in 2009, Hartline started. That racist Joker couldn’t wait to have a South Carolina player blow out Hartline’s knee and force– wait– Will Fidler into the game??? Of course, racist Joker knew Fidler would be mildly terrible and would ultimately force his homeboy Morgan Newton into action.

    In 2010, probably because Dubowski was catching on, Joker was forced to stick with Hartline, at least until his master plan forced Hartline into a criminal offense, and he was free to let G-Dawg Morgan Newton play QB in the bowl.

    Ri-damn-diculous.

    #10 is way off base. I was a big fan of the Mossakowski signing right up until he wrecked his shoulder. Can he come back, sure. In fact he has spent the last 18 months coming back. But you don’t quit now unless you truly believe you can’t win the job or you’re too far behind to make up enough ground, or your arm isn’t going to cut it. Something tells me that Peyton Mannings QB coach or his backup/replacement who led the Vols to a national title, might know a little more than we do about how someone is preparing or can be prepared physically AND mentally. QB is about confidence and when you’ve had a major injury that gets affected too. No offense but just ask Tim Couch. Don’t fotget Randy and Joker turned Woodson into one of the best in recent SEC history.

    As for the comments some have been making over the last couple of days about our system not being a pro style offense apparently either you guys don’t watch pro football or you have no concept of how pass happy offenses get things done.

    Yds per Completion:
    Rivers – 13.2
    Rodgers – 12.5
    Brady – 11.9
    Manning – 10.5
    Brees – 10.3

    Hartline – 11.8

    Each of the NFL QBs had a top receiver who avg a min 8.8 ypc and a max of 16.6 ypc. Each of their receivers had between 3 and 13 plays over 20 yds with the exception of Greg Jennings being the stud at 21. The WR also made between 0 and 6 catches over 40 yards.

    Matthews – 15.2 ypc with 7 plays +20 and 3 plays +40.

    WATCH the game and you’ll see that we are definitely a prostyle offense and Newton will be able to play in it. He’s healthy, intelligent, and mentally tough enough to handle it.

    I honestly don’t think you can label #10’s comments as rediculous. We all live with under lying racial thoughts and stereotypes in our life and those could come into play here and there regardless of the person. In no way was he saying anyone on our coaching staff is a racist or anything like that, he was just bringing up a point of view and it should be respected as so. So I’m not sure you can condemn him to the fires of the underworld like #38 did.

    38 didn’t just roast him – he used those all important things called facts to support his position. What did 10 use? 8 years of poorly reasoned history and ignorance of the history cited by 38. (notice the white guy running the team the last 2 years?)

    those signs are not allowed in Rupp. UK fans brought in several in the Gameday last year, but wasnt allowed to bring them in for the game.
