Late night notes brought to you by Derek Homer

a-homer-100299 october16th

Why do I choose Derek Homer as the guy who the late night notes are about? Because Homer still holds the UK record for single game rushing yards against Louisville, when he rushed for 123 yards against the Cards in 1998. But that performance gets overshadowed because Tim Couch, Craig Yeast, and the rest of the UK passing attack went for 7 touchdowns in a 68-34 romp in the first game at Papa John’s Cardinal Stadium. While we may never see a UK quarterback throw for 498 against the Cards again, I think it is well in reach for a UK back….cough cough…..Josh Clemons to break the 125 mark, even if it isn’t tomorrow. Now, onto some late night notes and you go to bed early and don’t drink so as to feel your best tomorrow:

-One quick, completely pointless basketball note. put out an article claiming that John Calipari may have committed a violation by having contact with a played named Austin Kyles in July, who I don’t think anybody had heard of. Cal was actually at the game watching Devonta Pollard, but after Kyles had a nice game against Pollard, Cal shook his hand and told him good game. Turns out, that might be anti-rules. The yahoo article was more column than it was article, as there were certainly some opinion given in it, but by rule coaches can not initiate contact with recruits during that period. Dwayne Peevy says the university is examining the issue, and that is basically where I think we should leave it until a resolution is made.

-Make that 2 basketball notes. Cal visited Perry Ellis today, the 4th coach to visit Ellis so far. It is believed that Calipari and Kentucky will be the last school to get an in-home visit for the highly ranked player.

-There is a football game tomorrow, not that either fanbase cares all that much. But I have a feeling that come kickoff, both sides will be excited and recognize that bragging rights are still on the line. Both teams actually really need this game coming into their conference seasons. Especially for Kentucky, getting a win is important for a couple reasons. First, it keeps the Governor’s Cup in Kentucky’s hands for a 5th straight year, something UL has never accomplished. But it also pushes UK to 3-0 on the season with 3 very difficult games to go. With a loss tomorrow, UK is looking 2-4 directly in the eye. A win and the pressure likely goes off of Joker and Morgan Newton for a while.

-The fans really want Josh Clemons and they will certainly get him. With the injury to Raymond Sanders, Clemons will get his first start and is likely to see a bunch of carries. Joker Phillips says that he will not be the exclusive back, as Johnathan George and Cosheik Williams could see some carries as well. As I am sure everybody has heard more than they like, the last 15 winners of this game have won the rushing battle. That battle rests mostly on the shoulders of Clemons tomorrow. Time to see what the freshman is working with.

-At last check, the game has yet to sell out. The Courier-Journal’s Eric Crawford was forced to issue a correction to an article he published in this morning’s C-J that said UL had returned some of their allotment of tickets. That turned out to be false (well done with that reporting) and UL says they have sold their entire base of tickets. UK reported having less than 4,000 tickets to go before selling out. The problem most fans seem to have is the pricing of the tickets, which ranges from 70 dollars and above. Hard to think that there would not be this problem if the game was played on the first weekend of the season, but that is an argument for another day.

It should be a glorious day at Commonwealth Stadium tomorrow, with the weather forecast looking perfect and the 7PM start time allowing fans to fully “liquidate” themselves before kickoff. Ethusiam in the program is struggling right now, and this game gives fans a chance to recover that. Holding this rivalry for a 5th straight year is something UK fans can take pride in, and should take pride in. We will have lots of coverage leading up the game, and there will be a live blog for the game if you can’t make it there. The game is on ESPNU, so if you don’t have that channel, make your plans accordingly.

    Alan Cutler says he was always told by the NCAA that if you are recruiting then player, it really doesnt matter. And I had wondered that earlier so I’m sure that’s true. But it is the NCAA and it is Cal.

    #5, you’re retarded. It’s hard to get yardage when you’re receivers cant catch the ball.

    On another note, Coach Cal and the staff were spotted in Kansas City at Willie Cauley’s football game tonight. The Kansas State coaching staff was there as well. I would love it if we could steal a couple Kansas recruits away from their local schools.

    UL fans didn’t buy all their tickets, and instead of having to suffer the embarrassment (after the crap they tried to pull on us with returning tickets last year), Jurich sold the remaining unsold tickets to students for 15 dollars.
