    My question for the recruiting gurus: If Troy Williams, who is listed as a 3 and in the top 10 among 2 cites, chooses UK next week, does that hurt us with Jabari Parker or Julius Randal, other higher ranked 3’s?

    Walk-ons don’t count for SEC academic honor roll. Scholarship players only. Beckham and Polson are on scholarship this year, Long and Malone are not. Let’s not complain about 18 year old walkons grades…

    Freshmen can’t be nominated. Must have 24 credit hours to be included on the honor roll.

    Maude…the only Maude I know was from The Big Lebowski.

    Sherry in ‘Logjammin’: [on video] You must be here to fix the cable.
    Maude Lebowski: Lord. You can imagine where it goes from here.
    The Dude: He fixes the cable?
    Maude Lebowski: Don’t be fatuous, Jeffrey.

    The 2011-12 Winter SEC Academic Honor Roll is based on grades from the 2011 spring, summer and fall terms. Among the criteria a student-athlete must meet to make the list, he/she must have a grade-point average of 3.0 or above for either the preceding academic year (two semesters or three quarters) or have a cumulative GPA of 3.0 or above at the nominating institution.
    Freshman player could not make this list Matt.

    My wife and I stopped on a road trip for something to eat. She was pregnant with our first at the time. A VERY young waitress, also pregnant, struck up a convo with my wife about baby names. The young waitress said she had always liked the name “Jesibelle” and hoped to have a girl so she could name her that. Wifey was kicking me under the table b/c I couldn’t hold my laughter.

    And, in may case, “Elmer” was a Teamster leader with a flat-top, a pack-a-day habit, a foul mouth and a no-nonsense take on life. Vision of a real man.

    Maud is correct about hating IU and not wanting the series to stop but I could get over it. I remember working in my grandfathers workshop with snow falling outside and papa’s fire in the wood stove when I was in grade school with the game on the radio, those are the type of memories some of us have. Papa hated IU and of course I did also, as the years past I hated them even more, you know booby knight arrived. Maybe it would be more difficult than I thought to get over it.

    Matt,
    The reason I always liked the IU-UK game in Louisville is because I was able to go to every game in Louisville and scalp a GOOD ticket for around $50 and get to see the game. That ticket at Rupp would be about $150. I want it to come back to Louisville and believe it should be played at the Yum Center. It’s a fact that the Eastern part of the state will not go to Louisville to watch UK play anyone. (Notre Dame, UT Chatt or whomever) They need to go back to neutral sites.

    It was common in the 13th and 14th century for the English to create nicknames by creating rhyming names, mainly by changing the first letter. In the case of Richard, the nickname one would think of first would be Rich or Rick. Because of the letter swapping form of nicknaming, Dick and Hick came to be known (D, H, B and P being the most used substitute letter). One explanation for this gives credit to the long standing English dislike of the unpleasantly sounding Norman “R”. Some other cases of the disappearing “R” including changing Dorothy to Dotty, Sarah to Sally, Harry to Hal, Margaret to Peggy and so many others.

    Possible explanation for Richard/Dick:

    The Dick Whittington story is an old one, told under other names throughout Europe, of a poor boy who sends a cat he had bought for a penny as his stake in a trading voyage; the captain sells it on his behalf for a fortune to a foreign king whose palace is overrun by rats. The hero devotes part of his windfall to charity, which may be why the legend attached in England since 16c. to Sir Richard Whittington (d.1423)
