Hello there, Big Blue Nation. I hope that you slept well. Close one last night, huh? Let me set you up with some links to start your morning off with…
-Even though Kentucky left Commonwealth Stadium last night with another defeat in their back pocket, Mark Story dug deep to find the small victories in the loss. The running of Jonathan George and Raymond Sanders stood out, as well as a much more inspired performance than just a week prior in Arkansas.
– The common trend following the game seemed to be an ability to concede that this season has been a disappointment, but to look forward to some of the positive things that are in store for Kentucky football when these younger players continue improving. John Clay believes that despite the loss, the UK football team did make progress last night.
– If you’re looking for a more straightforward recap of the game, CBSSports.com gives a pretty detailed rundown of the Georgia/Kentucky game. For Georgia’s Aaron Murray, needing a win, the victory over Kentucky allowed them to “get the bad taste out of our mouth.”
– In other SEC action, the Florida Gators are on an absolute tear after climbing into the #2 spot in the polls this week. Florida put on a clinic as they disposed of South Carolina and former Gator coach Steve Spurrier.
– Changing the pace just a bit, Anthony Davis is already winning over the fans in New Orleans. During the Hornets’ open practice on Saturday, Davis did not leave the fans who came out disappointed. The rookie was diving after loose balls and going hard on defense, putting on a show for the crowd. “It’s always fun to play in front of your fans,” said Davis after the practice. I think it’s safe to say from our experience with Davis at Kentucky, New Orleans fans are going to fall in love with him quickly.
