It has been a pretty busy day so let’s get to it…
— UofL released the news early this morning that Kentucky returned 2,060 of its 5,500 ticket allotment to the Governor’s Cup. UK football spokesman Tony Neely said Kentucky returned the tickets to keep from having to eat the cost. UK would’ve been responsible for buying all 2,060 tickets at $78, which equals $156,00 in money UK isn’t looking to shell out, had they not sold any more before September 2. By sending them back to Louisville, it gives UofL time to get rid of them.
— If you read the post directly below this one, you already know about a new name that could suit up for Kentucky in 2012-13. Central Florida’s Keith Clanton could be an option for Kentucky this fall if he decides to leave the Knights. Clanton, a senior, has been granted permission to transfer out of Central Florida after the school received a postseason ban by the NCAA. The 6-foot-9 all-conference forward will be eligible to play immediately and Kentucky and Florida State are the two options being mentioned. It would be a big get for UK because the Cats could use more depth and he won’t take up any of the class of 2013 scholarships. We’ll keep an eye on this one.
— Oh, by the way, Clanton is Central Florida’s all-time leader in blocks. What’s up, Nerlens?
— Speaking of the class of 2013, Scout.com released its updated class rankings today. Jabari Parker held down the top spot followed by the Harrison twins and Julius Randle. Kentucky target James Young is Scout.com’s eighth best player in 2013 and Derek Willis dropped out of the top 100.
— ESPN announced the game times for the SEC/Big East Challenge and your University of Kentucky Wildcats will travel to Notre Dame for the 7:00 PM game on Thursday, November 29. It’ll be televised on ESPN 2 before Marquette at Florida.
— KSR was live from Verlies in Morganfield today! We talked about UK memorabilia, Cal defending his players and tickets to the Governor’s Cup. Plus, Gregg Doyel called in to start the second hour. Have a listen…
