Cats fans are everywhere, including Jamaica. But there is a lot to get to, so lets have at it….
— The big news coming today is that ESPN is reporting that the Memphis NCAA report will come out this morning. It is expected that the Final Four could be vacated, which would lead to lots of howling from the national masses. Much will depend on what the NCAA report finds and who it places at blame, but today could be a rough and rocky one around the Memphis program and by extension, for Coach Calipari.
— In news that we will care about more, the schedule special is tonight at 10 pm. It will be on in Lexington, Hazard, Hopkinsville, Evansville and Huntington. For those of us in Louisville and the rest of the country, we are stuck with the wkyt.com feed which hopefully wont crash. Many national pundits have made fun of the Cat fans for being interested in this story and guys like Forde have made jokes along the lines of “dont they have anything better to do.” Honestly here is what I would like to find out….while the show is going on, someone put a camera on the houses of Forde and others who have made fun and lets see what CRAZY stuff they are doing that is so much better. My guess is nothing. The show has Buzz and Cal and was taped last week. Will it be good, who knows? Will I watch it and would I watch most anything about the Cats? Yes. Am I done watching Forde and his hair? Yes
— Patrick Patterson has been named a preseason finalist for the John Wooden Award, given to the nation’s best player. The last UK player to be given this honor at this point in the season was Keith Bogans.
— TCP reports tonight that UK will be doing an in-home visit with Terrence Jones, the #13 ranked player in America out of Portland, Oregon. He is a PF with mad skills and UK’s rise in his interest level is a good story worth following.
— The Cats game in Louisville is set to be against UNC Ashville on November 30th. Yawn…they dont even still have that really tall guy.
— Landon Slone has left Morehead State. No word on what he will do next.
— Corey Peters and Zipp Duncan were named Captains of this year’s UK football team, while Micah Johnson and Trevard Lindley were both named finalists for the Bronco Nagurski award. Both are big honors and will be handled well by all players.
— We will break down the UK football depth chart today on the site as it begins to take shape going into the final few weeks of practice.
This is a big day as Tucker Max has a LIVE BLOG at 2 pm on the site. Those of you that know Tucker know that it will be something very entertaining and different for the site. Tucker is a big UK fan and is ready to talk to Cat fans, so show up.
