University of Kentucky Basketball, Football, and Recruiting news brought to you in the most ridiculous manner possible.

Saturday Morning Hot Links

Good morning. How are you all? I am doing great. I have been thinking about you a lot since last weekend. A whole lot. How are you doing? (Sorry, couldn’t resist…again).

– Turn on your television set to the Olympic Basketball Channel (assuming you get it) to watch Anthony Davis and Team USA take on Lithuania.

– Whether you are the kind of person who likes quarterback competitions or you are the kind of person who thinks the uncertainty is a bad sign– a quarterback competition is happening here in Lexington, Kentucky between now and September 2nd. Joker Phillips acknowledged the competition and spoke about the fact that Patrick Towles will figure in the competition as well. Larry Vaught and his Views outlined what we learned from media day about the competition. 

– The UK football team’s offense left much to be desired last season. Offensive coordinator Randy Sanders is showing no signs of fear about a repeat. Sanders told the Herald Leader that he expects a much improved product on the field next season

– A Milwaukee Bucks beat writer (that can’t be the most exciting job ever) doesn’t believe that the interest level is extremely high between the Bucks and Doron Lamb. 

– In happier NBA news, Demarcus Cousins and Chuck Hayes are making a big difference in the Sacramento community. Both former Wildcats are highlighted for their contributions.

– Patrick Towles was one of the most popular players at the UK media day event yesterday. The Courier-Journal has a piece on Patrick Towles from media day coverage that looks at his position waiting in the wings to take the helm as UK’s starting quarterback. has a nice set of media day notes, highlighted by the fact hat Joker Phillips is very excited about this team. The article includes quotes and pays tribute to the character of a lot of the players who Joker Phillips thinks can be great leaders on this team.

Fox Sports South ran a piece yesterday looking at the best football venues in the SEC. The site lists their top 5, and probably to no surprise– Commonwealth Stadium did not make the cut. Take a look at the list though and see if you would agree with the ranking of our SEC foes.

I once successfully requested "The Wobble" to be played 6 times at one wedding.

    A good article on how Torian Graham would fit in at Kentucky. I tend to think you should never just quit recruiting a top 100 player.

    Don’t look now – but coach k appears to be having back problems again. Look for him to bow out at half time.

    Wonder if coach k will figure out that Lithuania won’t get to the basket so easy if he puts Davis in.

    3 – Let’s give him the benefit of doubt. Maybe he has a large sum wagered on the over for number of Lithuanian pick-and-roll baskets.

    Lamb played great in the NBA summer league, he will have no problem getting interest from other teams.

    Lamb,Teague as much as i love to have these UK players drafted they are not NBA players they benefited from playing on a high profile squad. It’s that simple you can all jump on me if you want but once these kids get in camp not the summer league. They get exposed.

    Coach K is useless. This game is unwatchable. Run down, jack up a 3, brick, no defense. Rinse and repeat.

    With luck, the Liths will get worn out driving to the basket for all those uncontested layups. Sure would be nice if the US had a player would could block shots and disrupt drives.

    Obviously, Steve Eubanks abhors losses – and Bourbon.

    if the Bucks and Lamb had no interest in one another, then why did they sign him to a multi-year deal? He was one of the first, if not THE first player that was drafted in the 2nd round to get a contract.

    That is not what the article said about lamb. It just said they were looking for more size on the wing. They obviously like him they gave him a multi year deal that they didnt have to. Lamb will be a solid nba role player.
