Kentucky Sports Radio

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

So, what did Shabazz think of UK-UNC?

There’s one person whose opinion on the game we haven’t touched on yet, and it’s someone who might be of particular interest to Kentucky fans. Shabazz Muhammad, the crown jewel of the 2012 recruiting class and serial during-UK-game Twitterer, surely would have something to say about the Cats’ performance in the biggest game of the college basketball season, wouldn’t he? Something about how Kentucky gutted it out, or how the game was great, or how he must have a thing for watching North Carolina lose, because he was in attendance last Saturday when UNLV handed the Heels their first defeat of the season. So what did Shabazz have to say about UK’s down-to-the-wire, instant classic, game of the year win over its historic rival?

Whoops. Turns out not even the game of the year was enough to get a high school senior out of bed for what was a 9 a.m. tip in his Vegas neck of the woods. It’s just another reason that, if this series ends up continuing sometime in the future, it should be in primetime. How are we supposed to show the country that we’re the pre-eminent power in college basketball when half of it hasn’t had breakfast by tip time? But, I digress. At least he was probably wide awake to watch UCLA drop to 2-5 after losing by 10 to Texas. Just saying.

Still, what’s more important than all this is that someone gets Shabazz an upgrade at alarm clock. The Louisville game is at noon, too.

    I heard that he actually saw the game, but has been told to stop tweeting about his “bros” as it looks like he’s leaning to UK every time he tweets.

    Found an error in it, too. Look in the student section just behind blue Spidey (back behind the Wildcat mascot). There’s a guy whose face is messed up by the photo.

    CATS must be prepared for HOOSIERS, they are chomping at the bit for their shot at us. They’re actually good this year 😮

    If it is true that Shabazz slept through the game then he needs to go to another school besides UK.
    I want players that are so passionate about playing for UK that they set the alarm clock to make sure
    they watch the game. I don’t care if the kid lives in Hawaii.

    If you look at his twitter, he also admits that the UK-UNC game was the best game so far this year. Looks like he caught some good highlights or had a dvr going.

    26… WTF??? No offense, but what a complete load! Nice attitude, Bro!

    GUESS WHAT??? Not every recruit’s world revolves around following the CATS. Especially 18-20yr olds living 3 time zones away. Ahh Boo Hooo…He missed the game…So, What. He’s the BOMB…I would love to see the guy suit up in UK Blue&White!! Put him in the DDO…Look out. Dangerous!

    My take…Sounds like 1) The kid wanted to see it and planned to watch, but over slept…or 2) He’s tweetin tongue-in-cheek to see how the BBN reacts; knowing we’re following his every move…. #2 seems more likely to me, as he’s as big a fan of NCAA BB as the rest of us!!!

    Either way… Get over it…If you really apart of the BBN…(And not some Rat Fink Snitch poser).. You’ll understand that these BB recruits are just kids w/ nowhere the amount of love & passion for UK, as some middle-aged die-hard BIG BLUE fanatics. That “Kentucky Effect” occurs AFTER they get on campus…We’re infectious. Then they’ll love us forever.
