This bit of news is something we could all really get used to hearing on Monday mornings. UK freshman running back Josh Clemons has been named SEC Co-Freshman of the Week, along with Isaiah Crowell from Georgia. Clemons rushed for 127 yards and a touchdown against Central Michigan over the weekend. It was the first 100-yard performance by a freshman running back since Tony Dixon in 2005.

Go Cats.

    Shannon the Dude is right…we should not have women announcing football games…then we wouldn’t have the awkward feelings after listening to “Josh Clemons somehow squirted!”

    I like how the camera person was completely lost on this play. You can forgive the Chippewa defenders a bit for being equally as lost as Clemons sneaked around, got out of the fray, and scored

    It’s not ya’lls fault, since the UKAA is the one spreading it, but Clemons isn’t the first UK freshman to have over 100 yards rushing since Arliss Beach in 2002 — Tony Dixon had 105 against Indiana in 2004.

    Not sure if anyone else has raised this, but thought you should know…

    Hmm. I’m not sure if I should be flattered or mad that some asshole ripped my video off my youtube channel and then steals my views by getting it linked on KSR.

    Pretty amazing that Clemons and the Central Michigan player are playing D1 football with only one leg.

    4) Dude, it’s YouTube. It’s free public domain. You can’t possibly be upset about that.

    Was she stopping to take a shot in the middle of that call? “Clemons somehow squirted……..away.”

    Clemons wasn’t the only one who squirted during that play.

    @8, that’s not actually true. Videos are only allowed to be copied and reposted/modified if you mark them as creative commons when uploading.

    4 & 11. Seriously? Get a life. You can’t really care THAT much about YouTube views.. if you do, I feel terribly sorry for you and I’ll keep you in my prayers.

    #11, so you have the expressed legal and written consent of ESPN and the NCAA to record this game and republish the content as your own? Don’t whine about it getting jacked from you if you jacked it from someone else.

    Not even going to bother explaining anything to you clueless people. Also, don’t pray for me. I don’t want your prayers.

    Sadly – this poor video quality is probably better than the live TV coverage which was about 20 yards behind the play from start to finish.
