Jessica Alba Wants Late Night Notes

April 28th is the birthday of Jessica Alba. It’s also National Heroes’ Days in Barbados. I didn’t have much trouble deciding who to devote these late night notes to and, subsequently, which picture to put at the top of the site overnight. You may know Jessica for the numerous movies in which she has appeared or you may be like me and know her for the above picture. Regardless, I think if I was in Barbados I’d be doubly honoring her today. Keep it up Jessica, you’re an international treasure.

– The worst part about days like today in the offseason is when I accidentally go to ESPN’s website and realize there’s nothing there that actually appeals to me. The NFL Draft and NBA playoffs keep things interesting in the sports world, but we’re hurtling toward that no man’s land when throws from third to first and home runs dominate Sportscenter’s Top Ten. Luckily, we’ll only be there for a month before the Olympics provide a bit of a respite. I hate the offseason.

– We’ve yet to see a former Kentucky Wildcat get their named called in the NFL Draft. Hopefully, their fortunes will be reversed today. I think both Winston Guy and Danny Trevathan could compete for roster spots on any team in the league. They’ll have to impress on special teams and I think they’re both hungry enough to do just that.

– The news today on the basketball front was John Calipari’s evisceration of Mark Emmert in a speech he gave at Samford University. Cal was there at the behest of former UK Director of Basketball Operations and current Samford Bulldog Athletic Director, Martin Newton. Emmert seems reluctant to engage in any kind of productive dialogue regarding the future of the one-and-done or two-and-done or none-and-done or whatever rules and that’s only to the detriment of the teams and players. These guys deserve to be protected regardless of if they get a degree or not. Emmert hasn’t done them any favors by skirting the issue and addressing it only in a format that doesn’t support an open conversation.

– Just to clear it up: UK has offered Mark Lyons, the transfer from Xavier. UK has not offered Mislav Brzoja, the man with the consonant laden name from Croatia. That being said, let’s bring in Anthony Bennett.

– Eric Bossi reported that John Calipari and an assistant have been watching James Young, a shooting guard in the class of 2013 from Troy, Michigan, in the Elite Youth Basketball League today. Young is a 6’6 guard ranked 10th overall in his class. He holds offers from Kansas, Florida State, Michigan State and Providence but said that Kentucky and Duke are his ‘dream schools’. Coincidentally, one of those schools would be my ‘dream school’ if I was a top basketball recruit. The other, not so much.

– I tweeted this out a while ago, but the way Nerlens Noel handles his Twitter account is simply masterful. The guy gets it. He could teach a class to college athletes about endearing themselves to a fanbase through social media. I love him. He’s cut from the same cloth as his new coach because both guys know how to market themselves. It’s fantastic.

– The UK baseball team edged out Vanderbilt in the first of a three game series tonight by a final score of 5-2 in Nashville. For complete post-game coverage, check out John Wilmhoff’s wrap up on KSR College. 


Keep those fingers crossed that we’ll see our former tackle machines get their names called tomorrow. We’ll be here to tell you the moment it happens. Happy Jessica Alba Day!

    Ok calipari says it would be smart for kids to stay two three or even four years right?What i don’t get then is he says he’s a players coach and told rose to go pro for his family come back for mine.Tells star players all the time to go if there a lottery pick.Isn’t he kinda giving bad advice then if the best thing for these kids is to come back to school?I just always kinda wondered of all the questions people ask calipari that this never comes up.

    3. no, thats not what Cal is saying….geezz, Cal knows there are very few kids in the big scheme of things that can go pro that early, be successful and handle things both on the court and off. Rose is one of those kids, hes not going to hold you back if you are ready, the problem is, for every Rose, there are 20 guys that shouldnt go and do. As it stands right now, many of the players he tells to go, have zero incentive to come back, no protection from injury, no draft stock upside based on potential instead of on the court performance etc.

    Yo, the sickest Jessica is present, son.
    Please, cal, UK and basketball are not the topics at hand.
    Let’s unite and overthrow the baby daddy throne.
    This honey is money, forever.

    First KSR says Calipari slammed Everett now KSR says Calipari eviscerated him. Stop sensationalizing it. He criticized. Didn’t come anywhere near to “eviscerating” him

    #4.But didn’t he just say i hope we get six guys drafted in the first round?Teague is no rose but he’s not saying it would be better for him to come back.I don’t know just a question ive always had i think they should be allowed to leave after there first year too much money to pass up and in college all u do is make other people millions.

    yes, been reading a lot about James Young and he is coming on fast. Tremendous athlete to go along with his height at guard.

    19 – I’d be shocked if KSR didn’t over index among Males. Maybe the connection could have been clearer with her wearing something UK, but it’s not like there’s an overabundance of news out there.

    Anyway, I hope they make a big deal if/when Trevathan and Guy are drafted. Would love to have some football positivity on here. We haven’t lost a game yet. We consider a bowl a success and until 7 losses are a certainty, we should act optimistic.

    Interesting thought here.. Why do when we get passed on by high recruits the thinking is “UK isn’t for everyone” as was so famously said by Cal. Yet obviously coach thinks someone with obvious attitude/personal issues is worthy of a scholly and UK? Think about it, just really shows how much of the kool aid we really are drinking…..

    If Cal brings in Lyons…the “GANGSTA”…I’m done with UK while he’s the coach. I could care less about how many titles he brings. It’s about character…and Lyons is a punk! The “kid” had no business stepping foot onto a college campus in the first place, much less having the opportunity to wear a jersey with Kentucky on it. Character makes the person…
