Its Labor Day and we all have other things to do, so just a few notes:
— Rich Brooks today announced the injury situation for the UK football team following the Miami game. According to Brooks, Marcus Davis will have surgery this week to repair his broken ankle and will be out for the rest of the season. If UK makes a bowl game, there is a chance that Davis could be ready at that time. In addition, it was announced that Danny Trevathan will have minor surgery on his wrist, after playing the last game in an aircast. He is not supposed to miss any time and will continue to play in the cast.
— On the basketball side of things, Coach Calipari made some comments on the team following the latest individual workouts. His basic theme is that he is surprised about the talent level he is seeing from all the players and is very happy with the group as a whole. He mentioned our man Josh Harrellson by name as continuing to show a lot and thus leaves open the possibility that Jorts could find himself surprising people next year.
— On the recruiting end of things, there were a couple of reports this weekend that have a UK impact. UNC got a commitment from James McAdoo, the #2 ranked Junior in America and a kid that UK had expressed a bit of interest in under Calipari. McAdoo came to the “Alumni” weekend that UNC set up, in which former players had a charity game and guys like Jordan were in town. No one does that stuff better than UNC and they got the commitment right after the weekend. On the UL side, Wayne Blackshear and Marquis Teague both visited this weekend in the 2011 class and the vibes were positive. Jerry Smith sent a message on Twitter that he thought both guys would commit to UL (something that it isnt clear he should have done) and Blackshear did an interview right before the visit in which he said UL was his leader. UK is interested in both young men and if they could still them from the Cards, it would be a blow…something that is possible so long as a commitment doesnt take place.
— Our man Andre Woodson was picked up by the Redskins today to be part of the Practice Squad, reuniting him with Jeremy Jarmon. Good news for Woodson and we hope he finds a way to make it his permanent home.
We will have stuff on here throughout your holiday Monday, so stay tuned.
