Drake’s Wednesday News & Views

Since Cal took over, we’ve had a lot of random celebrities pledge their allegiance to the Big Blue Nation: Jay-Z, LeBron, Irv Gotti, etc. While most of these “fans” are merely acquaintances of Cal’s that occasionally drop by to do the “Y,” one seems to have genuine love for the Cats: Drake. Drake first showed up on our radars back in June 2009, when Cal tweeted about meeting him in NYC. Back then, the former “Degrassi” star was the next big thing in rap, a mere glint in Drew Franklin’s click wheel iPod. Now, he’s one of the most successful performers in the world, with over five million albums sold and more number one singles on Billboard’s rap chart than any other artist.

When he’s not getting into fights with Chris Brown over Rihanna or working on his next album, Drake still pays his dues to the blue and white. He’s attended several games over the past few years, the most recent being the Alumni Game, in which he served as a guest coach. Despite all the fame and fangirls who fawned over his every move at Rupp, Drake was just a fellow Kentucky fan that day, oohing and ahhing after each DeMarcus Cousins dunk or Anthony Davis block. After the game, he told the crowd and reporters that his relationship with the Cats goes past just basketball:

“Kentucky has given me a real home. I actually dropped out of high school, which I don’t know if a lot of people know that, but I dropped out of high school. I never really got like a school experience. When Coach Cal asked me to come here for the first Midnight Madness, it just really gave me a sense of school, a sense of love, a sense of belonging to something. That’s why I feel like I belong in the UK family and that’s why I’m graduating high school this month. I’m definitely inspired by UK.”

True to his word, Drake passed his final exam (with a 97%!) and graduated high school on October 17th. That night, he tweeted that the accomplishment was “one of the greatest feelings” in his entire life. On your 26th birthday, these news and views are for you, Drake. You da you da the best.

— The big news of the day had to be the scuttlebutt surrounding Andrew Wiggins’ recruitment. Wiggins told Evan Daniels Monday night that despite what the media thinks, he wasn’t down to only Kentucky and Florida State and that he wished other schools would continue recruiting him. Wiggins’ high school coach Rob Fulford clarified those comments to Adam Zagoria on Tuesday morning, saying that other schools have picked up interest in Wiggins because they think they might have a shot now that James Young has committed to Kentucky, taking over a wing spot on an already packed roster. However, Fulford also said that Wiggins, whom he called “extremely unselfish,” wouldn’t rule out going to Kentucky simply because the Cats already have a commitment from a wing player.

So, where does this leave Kentucky with Wiggins? It’s not exactly the best of news that Wiggins is entertaining other offers (Roy Williams stopped by Tuesday afternoon and Kansas is on deck Wednesday), but honestly, it seems to me to be a classic case of “the pretty girl wants more suitors.” Wiggins is considered by many to be the most talented high school player since LeBron James, and you know what? He’s a kid. Maybe he wants to be chased a little more before making his decision. Either way, if I could have any coach in the hunt right now, it would be Calipari. #InCalWeTrust

— More Andrew Wiggins news! It was announced today that Wiggins’ team, Huntington Prep, will play Christian Faith Academy of North Carolina at Scott County at 4 p.m., Sunday, November 18th, so if you want to go see what all the hype is about, there’s your chance. I expect full reports on the game on my desk by 5 p.m. the following Monday.

— When he wasn’t taking pictures with a different, possibly even more awesome Wiggins, Kyle Wiltjer helped Cal introduce another ball to his office wall (does this give new meaning to “balls to the wall”?). This wasn’t just any old ball though…it was the game ball from the National Championship game:

Pretty soon he’s going to have to start hanging those from the ceiling.

— Jeff Goodman and the CBS Sports crew trotted out another preseason position ranking on Tuesday, releasing their list of the Top 50 Big Men in the country. Three UK players made the list: Nerlens Noel at #3, Alex Poythress at #14 and Kyle Wiltjer at #44. Apparently, the CBS Sports crew hasn’t been drinking the Cal-ade when it comes to Willie Cauley-Stein just yet.

— You may have noticed a new player in the All-Access previews. You know, this guy:

You’re looking at Tod Lanter, UK’s newest practice player. He joined the team the day after Big Blue Madness and is now living the life our dreams are made of. If that blonde mop and last name sound familiar, it’s because he’s the son of Bo Lanter, who played for the Cats from 1980-1982. When asked about it, Brian Long just said he hopes Tod appreciates it all.

Patrick Towles returned to the practice field Tuesday and looked exactly how you would expect a player who’s been limited for the past few weeks: rusty. “Really, really rusty,” according to Randy Sanders, who pointed out that on top of that, Tuesday’s practice was only Towles’ fourth time working with the varsity squad. Regardless, Sanders said Towles had tape, an air cast, and high-top cleats on his ankle to keep it stable and they hope to have him ready for Saturday’s game in Columbia. One thing that might make the Cats’ trip to Mizzou a little easier: James Franklin is doubtful to play, according to the team’s updated depth chart. UK Football 2012: Small victories!

— UK Hoops held its Media Day on Tuesday, and like the boys, were picked to finish first in the SEC. However, Matthew Mitchell said that’s all a bunch of hooey, and that if anything, it speaks more of last year’s team than this year’s team. When asked for his own predictions, Mitchell said he thinks his team is a Final Four team. His confidence comes with good reason: reigning SEC Player of the Year A’dia Mathies was named Preseason Player of the Year and junior Samarie Walker was named to the Second Team. Coach Mitchell nailed it when he said “Kentucky is the most exciting place in the country to play college basketball.” Mitchell played up the partnership between the men’s and women’s teams, himself and Calipari especially, joking that he has helped Cal out a lot, “particularly public relations; he’s had some trouble with that.”

— The spotlight may have been on his team, but it seems everyone still wanted to talk about Matthew Mitchell’s dancing at Madness. When asked about it, Mitchell joked, “People are extremely impressed with my ability to entertain. I’m sure my parents are proud.” Does he ever encourage Cal to dance? “I try to only bring things up to Cal that don’t waste his time. He’s a very busy man.”

— Busy busting a move!

— How can I not end on that note? Wednesday should be a fun day around these parts, with the KSR Dating Game at 11 a.m., the latest episode of All-Access Kentucky, and of course, the Blue/White game. See you soon.

    Drake is not a good role model. His lyrics are full of the N-word, disrespectful references to women, celebrating drug use and profanity.

    Good for him for graduating high school at the age of 26. But this is not the image UK basketball should associate with.

    Really? First off most or all of our recruits like Jay-Z and Drake. It’s a good recruiting tool. And heads up, every rapper curses and talks about women and drugs. But a lot of Drake’s songs actually go deep into personal issues and relationships (getting off on a tangent). The point is Drake is a good asset to have because recruits and players love him and he really doesn’t try to act like a gangster. Maybe its just because he raps about how much he likes being famous, which anyone would enjoy.

Not a fan of rap music in general. I don’t like rappers that have a thug mentality. But, this post wasn’t about me. This post was about someone that has been inspired to better himself and did it.

    Cal doesnt care what the 40+ yr olds think about Drake…he is just putting talent on the court. Those on the court listen to artists like Drake with their expensive BEATS right before the games. Drake is just doing what is trendy and that will never change no matter how low he sags his pants at the Alumni game while posing next to the sophisticated folks in ties on the court.

    The bottom line is, whether its in 2 years or 10 years, eventually UK will pay for selling its soul for basketball wins. Either Calipari will vanish overnight like he did at Memphis, or the national title banner will come down, or the very least– NCAA sanctions. It never ends well with Calipari. He has already made it clear he will be leaving soon, he is “not a lifer.” Let’s be honest, UK is enjoying a great run right now, and kudos for that. But remember what Matt said before Calipari was hired, “you would be hard pressed to find anyone in inner basketball circles to say (Memphis) was a clean program.”

    Be careful what you wish for.

    I wonder if Drake would care about UK if we never hired Calipari. Yet, we pledge allegiance to him like he’s been here since day 1. As soon as our team isn’t the hottest trend, he won’t step foot on campus or in Kentucky at all.

    32 – So thankful others are waking up to this. Love is blind, and nothing is more blinding than success to UK basketball fans. I’m a lifelone fan and yes – I hated the Billy G. years – but we lowered our standards simply to raise banners. We’ve become what we would have mocked ten years ago.

    I’m not going to sell out my integrity and pretend that everything is ok as long as we win. We should teach our children that standards matter, and that winning and losing only matters if it’s done right.

    Google some of Drake’s lyrics. Read them out loud and then consider how many young people idolize Kentucky basketball. It’s not just 40-year-old men and college kids. It’s old people, it’s housewives, it’s little impressionable children. Kentucky Basketball is much more than just a collegiate sport- it’s a huge part of the culture of the Bluegrass.

    Cal has come in and poisoined that culture. However, he’s done so under the cloak of winning titles and unprecedented hype and celebration. UK fans are drunk on euphoria. One day we will wake up, hung over and extremely embarassed and humiliated that we allowed ourselves to be used and exploited like we have.

    But you know what – when that day comes. We UK fans who are truly more concerned about the program than with they hype – will be here. We’ll rush into Rupp while the bandwagon, feel-good fans run for cover. And next time – we’ll insist that the program return to it’s glory without forfeiting it’s integrity.

    #36- That is ridiculous! Are u saying that because we have become successful that we have lost our integrity? Are you saying that because people are extremely excited that we have lost our integrity? You make it sound like we are a cult under Calipari! Excuse me if people are riding this wave and enjoying it! It has absolutely nothing to do with integrity. Now, integrity comes into play when we talk about how we celebrate and how we act but simply being excited and passionate about our program has nothing to do with integrity. While some fans do lose all credibility and integrity because of their actions and behavior, you can not stereotype an entire fanbase for the actions of a few. EVERY school has those fans! You seem to be a typical UK critic who thinks they are a fan. Come jump aboard this train and realize that its ok to have fun and be passionate about the program you love and still look yourself in the mirror in the mornings.

If Coach K told Duke he was leaving in a couple years (when he was Cal’s age) there would have been a PR uproar. Imagine Josh Pastner at Memphis, saying he was leaving in a couple years. Imagine telling your boss straight up, I am leaving in a couple years. Why do we let Calipari get away with it?

    How are you still alive? You gotta be, what, like 112 yeas old now? We get it, you hate your life, Calipari, rap music and the fact that not everyone is as depressed as you. Walk outside and smile for once. Jeez. I feel so sorry for your family.

    It’s all about standards folks. You either have them and adhere to them – or you don’t.

    I’m watching UK from a distance and have been for the past few years. When they lights dim, the fad wears off – I’ll be there along with the true blue fans who had the fever decades before Calipari ever stepped foot in the bluegrass – and if you’ll recall – Kentucky has been on the tops since the 40s when a less flamboyant man by the name of Rupp built it.

    And no -I’m not old enough to claim having met or watched Rupp coach – but I do respect tradition and integrity.
