Saturday Morning Links

Good Morning KSR!  Hope everyone is enjoying the almost-sunny weather out there today on the last Saturday of July.  Hard to believe the off season is just about over, huh?  Soon we’ll have football games and tailgating to fill up our Saturdays, and not too long after that, basketball and live blogs.  But until then, we’ll be around  covering all the news that breaks, so to get you started off, here’s a look around the net for Kentucky stories…

Your morning links:

— The big news yesterday was, of course, fighting the power in the oppression of Joe B Hall.  By the end of the day, names like Rex Chapman, Jay Bilas and Erin Andrews had all tweeted out support, but it was Calipari who looked at the problem and solved it.  A private citizen can’t coach private citizens in an exhibition game, NCAA?  Well fine, let’s make him a part of our staff.

— That’s not the only story making waves though, as the biggest national story from Kentucky centers around the return of Wall, Bledsoe and Rondo to campus in the event of a longer lock out.  CBS featured a write up on it, and since they linked to us, we’re picking them to link back to.  Even if we’re still not over Matt-Jones-gate.

— ESPN also featured a blurb about the game/point guard U, but they included an angle I hadn’t thought of yet. “Maybe Rondo can use the event to lobby teammate (and unrestricted free agent) Tayshuan Prince to consider coming to Boston at a discount rate.”  I don’t know that there is any validity to that thought, and I would be disappointed for Brandon Knight… but Prince as a Celtic would be pretty awesome.

— The official UK Athletics blog gives you a rundown of how the UK Football kickoff luncheon shook out.  There are some good quotes in there and the general feeling from the coaches continues to be guarded optimism.  If they can get the new comers to buy into what they’re selling, they really think there’s a good chance we can kick some people this year.  Looking forward to it.

— If you’re looking for more football coverage, KSR has our own Tyler Thompson at the UK women’s clinic today presumably learning all about Rick Minters new scheme, learning how to throw a perfect spiral from Morgan Newton, and teaching our linebackers how to properly execute an open field tackle.  She’ll have a write up sometime when she returns, but right now she’s covering it through twitter – you can follow her here.

That’s it for now, but we’ll be around all day so don’t go too far from your computer.  Or do.  It’s not like our posts won’t be here when you get back.

    I just bet Calipari plays a mean game of checkers. He seems to be four steps ahead of everyone. WELL DONE.

    Why don’t they live stream the UK legends game on the internet? It technically isn’t being portrayed on television or radio.

    Certainly would not surprise me to hear that ncaa makes a ruling that since these three are pros they cannot take classes @ UK

    prince as a celtic, makes me VERY very happy. Say what you want about some of the players on that team, that is one hell of an organization.

    I also did not think about Rondo courting Prince. Would add even more veteran tested depth at the 3 for the Celtics and would give Prince the opportunity to be on a successful team (no offense to Knight and the rest of the Pistons).

    Whats up, I don’t come to an agreement with everything in this write-up, but you do make some very excellent points. I’m very intrigued in this matter and I myself do alot of research as well. Either way it was a well thoughtout and nice read so I figured I would leave you a comment.

    This can be the very good web-site. Setting up it. You’ve got a great deal of comprehension pertaining to this type of theme, and also a great deal enthusiasm. You in addition realize how to generate individuals keep on being guiding that, of course from the answers. You possess a pattern here that’s not too triomphant, however produces a announcement as huge as what you will be expressing. Great task, certainly. Perhaps I’ll go to this particular helpful webpage for a lot of days afterward. Hope this excellent website can help some other person to discover the news they require.
