Good afternoon, fine people of Big Blue Nation and those of you trolling us from Indiana and Louisville today. It’s another slow day around the KSR newswire but there are still a few noteworthy tidbits to fill an Afternoon Notes post. Let’s run through them…
— Earlier today, FootballScoop.com reported Vince Marrow, a Nebraska grad assistant, to Kentucky to coach the tight ends. The hire makes sense — Marrow coaches tight ends at Nebraska and is an old friend of Stoops from back at Cardinal Mooney High School in Youngstown, Ohio — but the deal may not be done just yet. The Lincoln Journal-Star reports that Marrow hasn’t made a decision on whether or not he wants to leave Lincoln. His son, Mike, is a junior fullback on the team and Marrow has played a big role in recruiting. He has ties to five Cornhusker commitments from the state of Ohio, according to the report. We’ll have to wait to see if his longtime friendship with Stoops is enough to pull him away.
— I have a feeling it’s going to be a long afternoon for Adam Jacobi.
Kentucky doesn’t have any attractive women, according to him.
— ESPN’s SEC “Storied” series will air a new installment soon, this time profiling Sam Bowie. Going Big will chronicle Bowie’s career, which was plagued by injuries in college and the NBA and overshadowed by his draft placement. It will premiere on Thursday, December 20 at 9:00 ET on ESPNU. Here’s a quote from Bowie from the documentary to hold you over: “Every time I looked up, Ralph [Sampson] was on the cover of Sports Illustrated, he was awarded the John Wooden Player of the Year [Award], I watched when Dominique Wilkins left Georgia…James Worthy, Isiah Thomas get drafted. I’m nowhere close to hearing my name called. And looking back on it now when I took off for that last alleyoop that was the last time that I was 100% sound physically. It’s been a nightmare ever since that play.”
— On a completely unrelated note, very, very, very unrelated, Anthony Davis will lace ’em up for the Hornets tonight for the first time since November 17. Monty Williams, the head coach of the soon-to-be Pelicans, said he’ll bring Davis off the bench to ease him into it. The game is against the John Wall-less Washington Wizards.
