Kentucky Earthquake’s Saturday Night Post

What a crazy day in the state of Kentucky. With Polson love raining down from the heavens and the sun shining, a crazy thing happened — a 4.3 magnitude earthquake hit southeastern Kentucky today. Folks in Kentucky, Ohio, Indiana, North Carolina, Alabama, Pennsylvania, and Georgia reported feeling the rumble. The New Madrid fault zone is a tricky beast, and we’ve had earthquakes in the past. However, when they strike, it is quite the event for those of us who are not used to it. The biggest earthquake in Kentucky’s history was a 5.2-magnitude quake that occurred in 1980. I remember sleeping through the 4.8-magnitude one in April of 2008. Luckily, it does not seem that today’s natural disaster was deadly. Great news, but I hope that there isn’t much property damage either.

Now onto today’s stuff and things…

UK BASKETBALL

– After his heroics last night against Maryland, it seems that today should have been deemed ‘Jared Polson Day’ in the Commonwealth. From Sports Illustrated to the Huffington Post, Polson racked up some national attention today. All of it is well deserved, but I think we will continue to see Polson play meaningful backup minutes. This is a much larger discussion, but when you examine the trends we’ve seen in Calipari small sample set of 3.1 years at UK, the 2012-2013 Wildcat basketball team is shaping up to have a similar story to the 2010-2011 UK team. Strong talent, but no John Wall or Anthony Davis world-beaters. And now we have the developing underdog story of Polson, mirroring that of Jorts. Looking forward to seeing how this team continues to grow.

UK hoops (femmes, y’all) kicked off the season with a dubya, beating Delaware State 79-33. Check out the recap/live blog of this stomping from some very excited KSRcollege writers.

UK FOOTBALL

– Anytime it’s a Saturday during college football season and we can honestly say that Kentucky football did NOT lose today, it’s usually great news. Except on days like today — bye week.

UK RIFLE

– The national championship magnet UK rifle team beat Navy today. I’m not really sure why I told you about this, but let’s just roll with it.

MISCELLANEOUS

Louisville and Alabama both lost today. Texas A & M upended top-ranked Alabama, putting the chances of an SEC BCS national champion at risk. Syracuse gave Louisville a whipping (it’s okay to laugh even though UK sucks, don’t worry), which crushed Card fans’ hopes of going undefeated and whining about how the BCS left them out of the championship game. #L26S45

– If you were logged into the twitterverse today during the early games, you probably saw everyone chatting about two rumored Kentucky football coaching candidates: Apparently Tommy Tuberville slapped the hell out of assistant Kevin Oliverat Texas Tech. Or did he just snatch the headset off? You decide:

– Mike Brown was fired from the Lakers after just a handfull of games with the country’s arguably most talented group of players. Rumors of Phil Jackson getting re-hired by Lakers are now floating around. This could be interesting to see develop, especially since Jodie Meeks is on the team.

– In another NBA coaching shift, Kevin McHale had to leave the Houston Rockets for a family matter. Stepping in for him and coaching Terrence Jones and Patrick Patterson will be none other than Kelvin Sampson, the NCAA rule breaking former Indiana coach.

– Someone please buy me this shirt…

Alright, kids. That’s it for tonight. Say your prayers, throw a wink to your Jared Polson poster, and cut the lights. Or go out on the town. Either/or. Have a good one, and see you guys in the morning.

Go Cats.

    If Tubberville slapped the hell out of Brown, there must not have been too much hell in him.

    With the Leach controversy happening today and Tubberville going nuts on his assistant on the sidelines, that makes it more likely that Barnhart goes with someone he knows and is comfortable with–Fulmer or Cutcliffe. I’m not happy about either one of them, but I am happy that means Petrino won’t be here.

    Well, I’m glad we have some accountability. Not much, but something. I just hope the threads don’t end up being 10 comments long by the same people.

    We need to get to more pressing matters though – like demanding the hire of Bobby Petrino at UK! This story today from the Courier-Journal highlights one of the main reasons a Petrino hire could be a homerun. James Quick, one of the nation’s very best players, says a Petrino hire is really the only one that intrigues him and that he could see himself at UK with Petrino. Here it is: http://www.courier-journal.com/article/20121110/SPORTS11/311100115/1029/SPORTS/Recruiting-Insider-Trinity-s-James-Quick-sees-Petrino-good-fit-Kentucky-football?odyssey=mod%7Cnewswell%7Ctext%7CSports%7Cs&nclick_check=1

    Turn the registration back on, tired of the jokers who post on here that don’t offer anything of value. Would rather have 20 good comments than 100 terrible comments by non UK fans.

    Earthquake had nothing to do with the New Madrid alaucogen, you can even see on the map its not even close. The quake was centered right on the Pine Mountain thrust fault.

    Don’t delete my post please. But registration is stupid. You can’t control everything. Dictator matt just doesn’t want his little feelings hurt. He is ok with making fun of callers, but can’t handle when someone makes fun of him. Hypocrite.

    Another fake Linda Taylor sighting @20. The real Linda Taylor (me) is all for registration. I’ve never been afraid to use my real name. I must have really got under someone’s skin though for him to say the kind of things he is saying. It’s time to grow up son and join the adult race.

    Two big errors in this article — 1) The misspelling of a Kentucky player’s name (Jarrod, not Jared) 2) The earthquake was from part of what is known as the East Tennessee seismic zone (not the New Madrid)

    C’mon guys!

    I had always heard that Tuberville was a rather surly ole man, slapping an assistant on the sidelines is pretty classless…..we definitely do NOT need anything like that around here

    Tubberville ripped the headset off of the coach. He probable was adding his comments in the play calling, instead of just listening.

    “The biggest earthquake in Kentucky’s history was a 5.2-magnitude quake that occurred in 1980” Huh? Believe it was an 8.0 in 1812.

    1. The Earthquake of 1812 was so powerful it changed the border of Kentucky.
    2. Not that it matters, but reports are saying the assistant coach was not Neal Brown, but a GA.

    I do NOT want Tuberville. Nor do I want ANY other SEC retreads such as Cutcliffe and Fulmer.
    New Blood is in order. I’ll take Petrino (yes, I’m aware of his rep – I want to WIN), I want to CRUSH Louisville. I’ll take Dykes, Malzan (sp?). But NOT Tuberville, Fulmer, or Cutcliffe.
