Sports Illustrated Loves Them Some Jorts

Not since I made my way through Gainesville a couple years ago have I seen as much Jorts loving as we have witnessed the past few days.  But make no mistake, it is well deserved.  The Jorts machine has slowly been building all season, culminating into a monster game against Louisville, and doesn’t appear to be letting off any time soon.  Sports Illustrated has decided to get in on the love fest, naming Josh Harrellson one of the 10 players their team couldn’t do without.

Andy Glockner writes:

Josh Harrellson, F, Kentucky

He’s not allowed on Twitter (after criticizing coach John Calipari for not sufficiently praising his efforts in a preseason scrimmage) and his nickname is Jorts, but right now Harrellson is one of the major keys to talented-but-thin Kentucky’s Final Four aspirations. Unless Enes Kanter gets an NCAA reprieve and/or Calipari gains more faith in Eloy Vargas, Harrellson is it as far as legit size for the Wildcats. Already averaging almost 10 rebounds a game this season, he’s starting to become more of an overall threat, as witnessed by his 23-14 against rival Louisville and the 12-11 with six blocks in Monday’s win over Penn.

And he’s right you know.  As long as Kentucky stays Enes Free and Jones continues to struggle, the road to success has to go through Josh.  I mean, somebodie’s got to pick up the 4 missed shots a half, right?

    It really is great to see the unheralded Harrelson rise above. Last year, who would have thought that bench-riding Jorts was our future??

    Way to go JORTS… I was critical of his game early on, but since he has started catching the ball, he’s been finishing great…. Enes is a pipe dream for this season. Anybody see this about Laettner/Davis? Duke’s own Millar/Davender… http://www.tmz.com/2011/01/04/nfl-star-shawne-merriman-christian-laettner-lawsuit-duke-real-estate-lawsuit-federal-court/#comments-anchor

    Is it a coincidence that when i stummbled upon NCAA President Mark Emmerts FB page on Google that he Had Happy photos of a Tour he took of OSU back in October…i wonder if that played any favoritism in your OSU ruling there Mark?? Oh yeah and the fact that he was the Pres of Washington didnt have any effect on the Kanter situation either did it Mark? I mean would he have been eligible if he had stayed at Washington instead of changing his mind an going to UK …Mark!

    Mark Emmert is a pathetic president that needs to step down and let a fair and real President run the NCAA!

    Maybe now Cal will treat Harrelson equally and respect him as much as the other higher-rated players on his team.

    33- I’d say good… Even though it gives UCONN a loss, ND looks that much better… UCONN is still good.. I’d rather see the two teams with good records at the end of the year than UCONN with a great one and ND with a decent one… makes the loss to UCONN still look like a loss that isn’t such a bad one, and makes the very good win over ND that much better… just a thought…

    Great job by Jorts!! He’s made huge strides in his work ethic and effort. Those that hold Enes might not free him, but I have to think that letting him practice has helped Josh.

    #33 … I believe that goes to show the growing up the team has done since they played Uconn I really dont think it will hurt UK any.
