Harrow is back in town

photo coutersy of @LMHS1856

Folks, hold on to your butts. Ryan Harrow has officially returned to Lexington and practiced with the team today, according to both Coach Cal and El Capitan Jones on twitter. Harrow has been spotted UK Hoops game today (pictured above). Check out Coach Cal’s words:

Going twice today. Loved our 1st practice, guys went hard. Ryan went the whole way & looked good. Best part was seeing the smile on his face

Notice the commentary on Ryan going all the way in practice; good sign. Cal says the best part is seeing Ryan smiling, but the most noticeable thing is the MISSING FLATTOP. No! I’m so upset.

R.I.P. UK Kid N’ Play. 2012-2012

Ryan Harrow just released his own statement via UK media relations. Check out what Ryan has to say about his return:

I would like to thank my teammates, the UK coaching staff and administration along with the Big Blue Nation for their support over the last couple of weeks while I was out. I’m feeling much better and it felt really good to get back on the practice court with the guys today. Unfortunately, when I started feeling better, I had an issue to tend to with my family over the holiday break. Everything is good with that now and I’m excited about playing with my brothers again.

Welcome back, Ryan.

    Ryan, welcome back and I hope all is well with your health and your family. Just know that 99% of BBN nation is/was and will be behind you 100% and there will always be a few nutjobs who ruin it for everyone. Listen to the positive and ignore the negative/speculative comments and can’t wait to see you on the court.

    Go Harrow
    Go CATS

    We just got better on offense and defense! Depth, experience, another athlete and ball handler. Harrow is capable of double digits every game and is a great defender with hands and feet position! This is a great thing and it looks like he knows and appreciates the opportunity. This is great news! Welcome back Ryan Harrow! We will be rooting for you and our Cats!

    Good to have Harrow back. Hope everything works out for the kid and his biological family. I know his #BBN family is feeling better upon his arrival back on campus.

    oh, I’m glad that ‘El Capitan Jones’ has confirmed it. I will rest easier. I think a tweet from Coach Cal is quite sufficient to confirm Ryan Harrow’s status. Why did it take ‘El Capitan Jones’ until 3pm to confirm it? This was the BIGGEST story in Catland today and there was NO mention of it until mid afternoon. Unbelievable.

    Heard Harrow is now down 11 pounds. He will be no more than a shrunken head against ND. He will look look like “the head detective” from the in living color skit.

    Back but with no twitter or Instagram. Surprised KSR is doing a better job reporting this. I’m guessing he was sent home to decide if he was staying or transferring. My guess is he wasn’t playing because he was being disciplined. I doubt we will really know but it all sounds like BS to me. I’m glad he’s back and hope whatever was going on is behind him now.

    #35: I agree, the family issue / prayer for the Harrow family doesn’t pass the smell test. It stinks of BS. He was probably mad about the limited PT he got during the Maryland game and/or was being disciplined. The rest is BS.

    Yeah, unfortunately there is some on here who is full of BS and think they know what is going on with him. Why speculate?? Let it rest people,just wish the kid and his family well and get behind him to do good the rest of the year. #3 has the best comment on here about this situation and I, along with him or her wish Ryan nothing but the absolute best!! Welcome back young man to the BBN, practice hard and prove all of your nasayers wrong. Go Cats!!!!!!!! Go Cal!!!!!!!!

    Maybe mono, maybe he’s bi-polar, maybe competition next year, maybe that his mental toughness can’t take Cal’s approach. But now that he’s back, if doesn’t matter. Or does it? I would think if it was mono, that could be hard to fully recover from. If bi-polar, it could rear it’s ugly head any time, like maybe before a big game. If it’s next year, I think that is the least of our concerns. If it’s his mental toughness, I think he can mature. Lets hope he’s back for good and he doesn’t have a relapse.

    This whole thing with Harrow could be a blessing in disguise. We found out that Polson is a lot better than most of us thought and if in a pinch Mays and Goodwin can play the point also. If I had my druthers though, I’d like to see Harrow play good enough to play 30 plus minutes a game from here on out.

    Screw all the BBN faithful that are making up conspiracy theories. This kid has been waiting for this opportunity an entire year and he all of a sudden doesn’t want to be on the court? Archie moves to the 2 now and we can actually move the ball now vs. Archie driving 100 million times in a game. Completely changes this team for the better.

    Healthy or not, Ryan Harrow is simply not a great PG. Never has been, never will be. Disappears in big games regardless of a mystery illness or not. Not a traditional Calipari PG.

    Never thought I would hate another player like Teague or more than him but man this kid is in the running. Guess the Monistat 7 I suggested last week worked on his lady parts.

    Glad Harrow is back, but I don’t expect him to play much against ND.
