Nerlens Fan of the Day Wants Afternoon Notes and Podcast

This is 1 of 10,563 photos Nerlens Noel posed for on Bourbon Street during the Final Four. That explains why he looks exhausted.

— We’re 29 1/2 hours away from Decision 2012 and everyone is still just guessing where Nerlens Noel and Shabazz Muhammad will end up. Today, ESPN recruiting guru Dave Telep wrote “UCLA was the clubhouse leader for a long time while UK has the current momentum.” Now that we know Shabazz has already finalized his decision, I wouldn’t be surprised if it came out before tomorrow night’s ESPNU special. It’s hard to keep a secret in recruiting in this day in age.

— If watching TV isn’t enough for you, we’ll be live blogging tomorrow night’s ESPNU Signing Day Special. Join us at 7:30 as we count down to the moment the two stars of 2012 announce. We’re all in this together.

— All of us can let out a big sigh of relief now that Nerlens Noel has turned 18. I was beginning to worry that Perverted Justice would kick our doors down if we kept spending so much time on the Internet talking about a 17-year-old boy.

— Check out this video of Jalen Rose calling out Skip Bayless on this morning’s episode of First Take. Skip has always bragged about how he led his high school basketball team to a state title but issues with his coach kept him from getting D-I offers, and Jalen called him out today with stats from Skip’s high school career. Apparently, Skip played JV as a junior and averaged 1.4 points as a senior. Jalen reminded him of that today…

He called him Water Pistol Pete!

— Kentucky’s awesome baseball team plays host to the Louisville Cardinals tonight at 6:30. Stuart Hammer will be by in just a bit with a preview of the big game, or you can follow in-game coverage over at KSR College.

    As usual, Bayless is clueless. Most of these guys on ESPN are validations of the Peter Principle—promoted to their respective levels of incompetence.

    My neighbor’s 3rd cousin’s brother heard that Bazz and Nerlens are both coming to UK.

    My brother is a valet attendant at the Westin in Atl. He told me Shabazz’s Mom & Dad already made reservations for the first weekend in April 2013. Just sayin…

    I can’t believe Jalen did that….ON THE DAY THAT RICK SANTORUM DROPPED OUT OF THE ELECTION, he wants to do that!

    My cousin’s brother’s girlfriend’s father’s best friend’s son’s first grade teacher’s grandfather’s uncle’s grandson’s cousin’s daughter’s stepfather’s niece’s boyfriend’s mother’s gardener just told me that Shabazz and Noel are both coming to Kentucky. WOO!

    I don’t know $hit about what either of them are gonna do…..

  12. Jalen made Skip look bad! Haha. Skip looked hurt. Other 2 guys were in so much shock, that when the camera panned out they were jaw opened dear in head lights look. Haha. Suck it Skip.

    Wait… wouldn’t your neighbor’s 3rd cousin’s brother also be your neighbor’s 3rd cousin?

    13 – Usually not, but Skip is the exception. When you’re as bad as him, your only place is in JV.

    Quit covering the UK/UL baseball team or you will never get to interview Charlie Strong again.

    I would feel sorry for most people for getting called out like that, but Skip Bayless has been so horrible to so many people that he needs to see what it feels like. Good for Jalen Rose.

    Skip Bayless sucks. He said this morning that Anthony Davis won’t be that good of a player in the NBA and that Feztus Azili from Vandy handled Davis in each meeting. But the other guy on there said if Davis goes to the Bobcats, he will give them 40+ wins next year.

    I can’t stand Skip Bayless!!! He should be a bus boy or dishwasher cause he sucks at his current position.

    Countdown to “Decision 2012”? Really? Oh $hit. Talk about drama queens. Come on. Stop being silly. Sure, I want Nerlens & Shabazz to play for UK, but a countdown, multiple posts saying you’re anxiously waiting, and giving your waiting period a “cutesy” nickname?
    Come on, Drew…. This is something Ms. T would do and then I’d ask How old are you & did you just discover UK basketball this year?
    Clown.

    It’s funny that we care whether an analyst played the sport at a professional level or not. Even though Skip sucks, who cares, Jalen? Everyone knows you are a better basketball player than Skip Bayless. It’s like calling out Matt Jones for being a writer on a UK site when he went to Transy and freaking DUKE. lol



  32. Skip Bayless
    3:45 pm April 10, 2012 Permalink

    I’m even clueless about myself.



  33. John Hunt Morgan

    31-No, It doesn’t matter if Bayless was good or not. It matters because he lied about his career and compared himself to Pistol Pete in order to make a point about the OKC Thunder.

    I love Jalen even more now
