Keyla Snowden and this lucky UK fan want Afternoon Notes

fotd-keyla-snowden

Hey, Monday’s more than halfway over! Here are some afternoon notes in honor of the beautiful Keyla Snowden, Big Blue fan Jakob, and the guy in the background who vaguely looks like Jason Biggs.

Team USA bounced back after a disappointing quarterfinal loss with a 86-83 win over Germany today, giving them a fifth place finish overall. Good news: Darius Miller drilled a three-pointer to start the game. Bad news: those were his only points. It’s okay. They beat Germany, and that sounds much more patriotic than losing to Lithuania.

– Could the Colts’ woes at QB as Peyton Manning recovers from neck surgery lead to Mike Hartline seeing time on the field? Yes, Hartline is behind Curtis Painter and Dan Orlovsky on the official depth chart, but Painter has been less than impressive so far in the preseason, starting two games and completing 8 of 16 passes for 95 yards with no touchdowns and one interception. Orlovsky has only played in 13 games in six NFL seasons, so the opportunity is there for Hartline to get some playing time if he impresses during practice. And then there’s the whole Brett Favre to the Colts rumor, which I won’t even dignify with a response.

– Joker Phillips opened the first 45 minutes of practice today to the media. The Courier-Journal has a slew of videos, including one particularly hard-hitting 3-on-3 drill. Now if that doesn’t get you pumped up to tackle your work this afternoon, I don’t know what will.

2013 SG Isaiah Lewis has trimmed his list to six, with Kentucky failing to make the cut. However, this may be because Kentucky was one of two schools on Lewis’ prior list not to offer him a scholarship (UNC being the other). Lewis will choose between Florida, Georgia Tech, Kansas, Memphis, Miami (FL), and North Carolina. Whatever, moving on.

– Looks like Josh Pastner is breathing a big sigh of relief in Memphis, as they found out they are off the hook for a possible violation in the recruitment of 2012 superstar Shabazz Muhammad. Muhammad gave an interview to a Duke site in which he said that Memphis kept “calling and calling and calling,” leading the NCAA’s Basketball Focus Group to investigate the potential violations. They also asked about who paid for Muhammad’s plane ticket to visit Memphis, Minnesota forward Trevor Mbakwe, and other prospects. Turns out they’re in the clear since Muhammad’s dad is an AAU coach, which is one of those small loopholes in the ridiculous phone-call restrictions. Regardless, it doesn’t seem that Memphis is a serious contender for Shabazz, who as we know, has several big name schools courting him, including one Mr. John Calipari. Get it, Cal.

– If you haven’t heard yet, the Oakland Raiders picked up Terrelle Pryor in the third round of the NFL Supplemental Draft today. Bwhahahahaha. The jokes write themselves, folks.

– Finally, Old Navy pulled off a big ole grammar fail with its new Superfan Nation t-shirt line:

old-navy-letsgo

It’s okay. They also chose to offer a long-sleeve tee for Louisville and not Kentucky, so clearly they’re not very smart. #boycott

Here’s the podcast, in which Matt and Mark Krebs discussed Bill Lamb, Sonny Collins, and cream cheese violations. Oscar “Naughty Curl” Combs stopped by and stumped everyone with a trivia question. What was it? Guess you’ll have to listen to find out:

    Well, there are a couple mistakes. “Go Big Blue” is typically not broken up into two parts, and obviously ‘Lets’ should be ‘Let’s’. And more than one exclamation point is grammatically tacky, so, technically, there are a lot of things going wrong, here.

    TP will fit right in among the circus in Oakland! Al Davis never will cease to amaze me!

    Grammar fail indeed. Everyone knows it’s spelled “leggoo”.

    This was winning slogan. Also considered:
    Let Us Go!! Big Blue
    Lets Go Big!! Blue

    That’s why you don’t hire UT grads, Old Navy.

    I’m glad there is a writer on this site that can recognize a grammatical error.

    There’s another usage error. Isaiah Lewis isn’t picking “between” FL, GA, GT, KS, Memphis, Miami, and UNC. He is picking “among” those schools. If it were just UK and UNC, then he would be picking “between.”
