It was a four-day work week for most of you but that didn’t keep the news from coming in. Here is what you missed while you were busy telling everyone you know how The Hangover 2 was exactly like the first one.
Monday was Memorial Day. Thank you to all who have served this great country. Thank you, thank you, thank you. Also, thank you to whoever brought the potato salad. Perfect blend of yellow and horseradish mustards.
Two Stephenson High School wide receivers, DeMarcus Sweat and Shawn Blaylock, committed to Kentucky.
Jim Tressel resigned from Ohio State. It’s getting ugly in Columbus.
Jim Tressel’s resignation opened the floodgates for the media to take shots at Calipari. One of those was Cost Cutters poster boy, Thayer Evans, who said, “Although he’s never been a national champion, he’s been one for years when it comes to deny, deny, deny.” Hate, hate, hate…
Former Kentucky tight end TC Drake was severely injured in a motorcycle accident with a woman driving under the influence in Bardstown. Drake was airlifted to Louisville where he is listed in serious condition. Drake’s mother said TC is responding to the medicine but he is a long, long way from recovery. Keep TC and the Drake family in your prayers.
2012 super-recruit Rodney Purvis said Ryan Harrow’s decision will not affect where he attends school. He lists Duke, Kentucky, Louisville, NC State, and Memphis as his leaders.
The SEC voted to do away with the East and West divisions and unite as one undivided conference. In the new model, there will be one conference champion and seeding in the SEC Tournament will finally be fair. Well, fair enough to where Kentucky will play better teams before winning it all.
Kevin Ware committed to Louisville, the team he committed to before he decommitted and committed to Central Florida after he decommitted from Tennessee. My head hurts.
Derrick Jasper shocked us all by accepting a graduate assistant position under Billy Gillispie at Texas Tech. Jasper told the Las Vegas Sun that he has a good relationship with Billy Clyde and everything was blown out of proportion in Kentucky.
Coach Cal threw a Twitter-bomb at the Triumverate with “Radio Silence is the sound you hear on twitter from the triumvirate & compadres when there are positive stories about UK. Can you hear it?” Boom.
Shaq retired. He was averaging 23 points and almost 10 rebounds almost halfway through his rookie season when Brandon Knight was born. That’s crazy.
Enjoy your weekend. Don’t forget about the KSTV Casting Call at Sam Swope in Louisville this Saturday.
