More Underwater Goggles Want Afternoon Notes and Podcast

These goggles come to us from the Newport Aquarium in Newport, KY. It looks like throwing up the goggles underwater is the new fad.

Notes and podcast…

— We’re just four hours away from the official beginning of the Max Smith regime at Kentucky. As we mentioned on here earlier, Joker is expected to make the announcement after practice this afternoon. He’ll meet with the media at around 6:00 pm to talk football and roster moves.

— Don’t be surprised if Patrick Towles is the fourth option at quarterback when the depth chart is final. Jalen Whitlow really surprised the staff this fall with his ability to throw the football. Whitlow came in to Kentucky as an athlete but his accuracy will likely keep him at quarterback, where he could challenge Morgan Newton for the No. 2 spot as the season progresses. It’s looking like a redshirt will be the best option for Towles.

— Regardless of how UK’s depth chart looks this season, everyone should be careful when tweeting about riding a pony or finding stray panties in the on-campus laundry facilities. I’d hate for the players to flood Joker’s inbox with less than two weeks before the season opener.

— I’m told Nerlens Noel was all over town yesterday, his first day in the big city of Lexington. He was spotted at Raising Cane’s on campus, Wal-Mart, Memorial Coliseum for the volleyball game, and then ended his night with The Hunger Games at the student center’s movie theater. I’ll set the over/under on photo requests at 78.

— Have you heard the one about Alan Cutler using an alias to check in to hotels on road trips? It’s right here in today’s podcast and it includes Scotch whisky, sweet vermouth, and bitters to taste. Have a listen…

    Excited that Noel is in town. Now he can work out with the team and assimilate to the dribble drive.

    That’s also the SCUBA hand signal for “OK”, and is used countless times during every dive in communication between diving buddies. The more you know!

    4) Not sure how much DD Cal even uses anymore. He’s actually had more success assimilating his coaching style to fit the playing style of each team. The last 2 years we were running more pick and roll than anything. Sounds like he’s already trying out how to play twin tower ball.
