Jersey Shore Season 4’s Friday News and Views

Let’s just throw it out there… I watched it. You watched it. I’m talking about the fourth season premier of Jersey Shore. Ronnie, Snookie, Sammy, Deena, J-Woww, Pauly D, and The Situation went to Italy, and when they did, they stole one hour of all of our lives Thursday night. That’s one hour we’ll never get back. Are you proud of that? I’m not. Let’s quit talking about it.

Who wants News with a side of Views? Open wide.

— Thursday was just like every other day this week – Kentucky added a football commitment. Three-star defensive end Langston Newton from Indianapolis committed to the Cats. Rivals.com says he was recruited by Chuck Smith, but I bet his older brother Morgan played a significant role in the recruitment. Morgan Newton’s 6-foot-5, 240-pound baby bro was the fifth pickup for UK football this week. Joker and his staff are rolling.

— We could be seeing a change to the way some things are done in the basketball recruiting world. The NCAA Leadership Council met up in their secret lair in Indianapolis and discussed ways to improve summer basketball recruiting. This is what they all agreed on, according to NCAA.com:

– A start date for official visits beginning after the men’s basketball championship in April of the junior year.

– Deregulating the type of communication between coaches and prospects (including text messaging and other forms of electronic communication).

– Allowing unlimited communication after Aug. 1 before the junior year in high school.

– Permitting evaluations at certified nonscholastic events on two weekends in April, with some restrictions.

– Permitting some contact at a prospect’s educational institution in conjunction with an evaluation, with some restrictions and requirements.

None of it is official, but the NCAA is making progress. The council still has to organize everything into cute little PowerPoint slides and present it to the NCAA Board of Directors in a few months in their board room made of gold and the souls of student-athletes.

— Coach Cal wants you to know that he’s got no beef with Mike Krewzewszkzi. CBS started spreading the vicious rumor after Coach Cal made a comment on the radio about coaches and phone calls. Here’s what he said: “You have coaches getting fired over phone calls and texts messages – some. Other guys can make phone calls and it’s not that big of a deal.” Disappointing, right? Like Beisner said earlier, if Cal wanted to take shots, he’d take shots. This is nothing. If Calipari wanted to go at Mike Kzzewskiskki, he would’ve gone at him harder than a Christian Laettner body stomp. No ‘Kaboom’ here.

— The first USA Today Coaches Football Poll was released Thursday. Kentucky was not in the Top 25.

— According to ZagsBlog, DaJuan Coleman will be in Lexington for Big Blue Madness on October 15. The Cats are still very high on the big man’s list, but he has added Ohio State to what was just a two-way race for his basketball services. Whenever Coleman announces, I want to see him put on a UK hat and then spike a basketball at the Ohio State hat. That’s what we do to Buckeyes.

— I still can’t believe we watched Jersey Shore last night.

— UK football needs your help and you don’t have to get off the couch to do it. UK Athletics has requested assistance in selecting a playlist for Commonwealth Stadium this season. Send all your favorite hype songs to ‘[email protected]and let’s get this party started. I’ve already sent emails from ten different email accounts with my top three: (1) Notorious BIG – Juicy, (2) Notorious BIG – Juicy, and (3) Notorious BIG – Juicy. I ask that you do the same to make sure this happens. Every Saturday Rap Attack, Mr. Magic, Marley Marl.

— Speaking of UK football, the players reported to camp Thursday and Cat Scratches has a video from the first day. Players and coaches will meet with the media Friday morning and then jump right into the first practice of the season in the afternoon. 26 days…

— Sad news out of LSU today as Steve Kragthorpe stepped down as LSU’s offensive coordinator after a diagnosis of Parkinson’s disease. Kragthorpe will remain on the staff but he’ll take a lesser role with the team. Best wishes to him and his family.

That’s all for now. Matt will be doing the radio show from Media Day so expect a great show with a lot of guests. Until then, here’s Darius Miller representing the United States of America…

    Lots of teams will start 4-0, unfortunately when your playing 4 teams not ranked in the top 50 why would that make you be in the top 25?

    Never watched Jersey Shore. One of the unmanliest things you can do. If you feel an urge just go to the DVR and watch the UK vs.UL basketball game from last season.

    Who cares about all this crap? The big July jobs numbers come out at 8:30. I’m as nervous as a whore in Church. If unemployment goes above 9.2 and we didn’t create at least 100,000 jobs for July, I’m toast. If we get bad data, the selloff will be on again today. Who will feed my beautiful wife Michelle if I get canned?

    I can honestly say I’ve never seen “Joy-sey Sho-a” and after seeing the one fat assed orange chick on Leno, I can drop on my knees and thank the good Lord for making me so lazy to turn the remote to it.
    I was Temporary Duty while in the AF in New Jersey back in the mid 70s, and to this day I always wondered why we never gave that state to either England or let Russia have it. I would’ve said Samolia, but those poor folks have enough to worry about.

    #20 – I hear you on that one. Took a trip to Philly recently and loved it. While, I was there we went to Jersey to hit the beach. I have been to about 30 states. I can safely say, New Jersey is the worst state I have ever been to, hands down.

    Average Conservative KSR Reader: “Matt you are a liberal, take your views somewhere else, just talk about the Cats. You suck and are a socialist who hates America, and are probably a terrorist.” (But with worse grammar, punctuation, and sentence structure, and ignoring the fact that Matt Jones didn’t write the post that caused the tirade)

    Average Liberal KSR Reader: Ha ha ha…you watch Faux News, stupid conservative. Go listen to Rush Limbaugh, he got addicted to drugs once, and therefore your views are wrong. Also, you are brainwashed because you don’t agree with me.” (But with worse grammar, punctuation, and sentence structure, and with a smug sense that they are the first to ever call it “Faux News” when it has actually been done 300 million times)

    Barry Obama – I hear ya bro. U should be happy with the number I am so underwater shorting the long bond it’s sick….back to the Cats for a moment someone tell Joker to get some beef. We need the Winn Dixie type kids to compete in the SEC. I’m talkin 300 pounders. Find em, bring em in, red shirt em and beef em up. All the skill players in the world can’t help u win — this is not flag football. That being said Go Cats, go (down) long bond, and Drew Jersey Shore sucks big time!!!!!!!

    PLEASE no Jersey Shore references. It just cheapens the entire blog. I have to listen to enough of the reality stuff at work, dont bring it here. UK sports and Jersey Shore trash should not be on the same page.
