    We need a defensive lineup out there tonight. Polson/Goodwin/Hood/Wiltjer/Noel. Hood needs minutes and he can contribute. Best luck to the gentleman in the above photo.

    Rough news for Twany. Silver lining…free back surgery from probably the best doctors in Lexington.

    can’t think of a more snakebit career at UK than Twany’s. Best wishes to the young man

    Will Twany qualify for a medical red-shirt? Hate to see him lose his last year of eligibility when he never really even got a chance to play because of injuries.

    most hated SEC players: Anthony Robeson (UF), McKie and Watson (USC) and Vernon Maxell (UF).

    #4… Polson/Goodwin/Hood/Wiltjer/Noel is your defensive lineup? Is that a joke? Have you watched a game?

    Wish Twanny a speedy recovery.



  14. I hope Tyler was making a joke

    I usually like Tyler’s posts because she doesn’t usually try to be funny. But this is either a TERRIBLE attempt at being funny as captain obvious or just not too bright.

    Also, does Brian Long rub anyone else the wrong way? Of the three white boys sitting the bench he really urks me. I hate to say it but he really is a turd. He acts so hard and “cool” during games. A die hard Kentucky bred walk on should be on that bench.

      Thanks, #16. I wrote it that way because we have no official statement from the university.

    #4 ya because Wiltjer and Polson are nothing if not great defensive players…

    @14 I think Tyler’s post is written the way it is because UK has said nothing about the surgery. The only info we have is a tweet from Brian Long.
