Sunday Morning Links

Good morning everyone. I will be helping to get you through one of the last Sundays before the start of college football season. Today all of KSR and KSR College’s finest will be in the same room together for the first time for a “KSR Summit meeting.” Imagine the possibilities for a moment. I’m going to be disappointed if 6:51 p.m. Aaron and his links don’t show up… Now, without further ado…your Sunday morning links…

– As we mentioned last night, former Kentucky basketball player G.J. Smith passed away on Friday. The outpour of kind words about Smith from those who were fortunate enough to meet him during his time in Lexington and thereafter has been astounding. Larry Vaught described Smith as “a good guy, someone I will miss.”

The Herald Leader used the word “geeked” in the title of one of their articles today. If that’s not reason enough to check it out, perhaps you would like to hear more specifics about the most-talked about drive of the 2nd football scrimmage yesterday. The drive consisted of 14 plays that took the offense 98-yards behind Max Smith’s arm and a slew of other sharp plays.

– The women’s soccer team, coached by KSR favorite Jon Lipsitz, has already played and won their opening game of the season against Coastal Carolina. On Friday afternoon before the game, KSR College’s Kristen Geil was able to have a phone interview with Lipsitz. Lipsitz helped answer 5 questions heading into the season about his team. If you are the kind of person who enjoys supporting all of UK’s athletic teams, the women’s soccer team has the feel of the women’s basketball team of a few years ago: they are a team very much on the rise.

ESPN had a nice breakdown of the recent AP Top 25 college football poll. The first paragraph states that the SEC is “taking a backseat” by virtue of losing the top spot to USC. I’d say the SEC is riding shotgun rather than sitting in the backseat, with the #2 and #3 spots in the poll locked up…but wording is subjective.

– I recently came across an article not about Kentucky sports. The article was interesting enough though that I think it’s worth sharing. ran a piece about “the Other Dream Team.” In 1992 the United States blistered their Lithuanian opponent,  but a much deeper story for that Lithuanian team existed, and not many have heard it. 

– And in a Twitter link, are Jeff Goodman and DeMarcus Cousins having a little spat? Hopefully Goodman’s grammar and knowledge of which “your” “you’re” to use will continue to mature as well… #TeamBoogie

    This is for people like Jeff Goodman…

    Goodman wouldn’t use “you’re” (you are), “your” is correct

    Goodman is such a punk. If he was a real man, he would challenge Boogie to a cage match.

    2.) There are two “your”s in that tweet.

    @2 – “Glad to see you are (you’re) maturing in your time in the NBA…”

    Goodman has such a hard-on for Cousins, that I think it might be a legitimate crush. I’m not trying to be funny either. Dude brings up DeMarcus anytime he can.

    Did Boogie try to get him fired or something?

    It would be nice if you provided the back-story to this little spat.

    Number 2 is actually right. What Goodman wrote is grammatically correct. “Your” is very acceptable here. “Maturing” could very well be, in this case, a gerund noun. In such a case a possessive pronoun is very much desired. Another example would be: “I thought his (possessive pronoun) swimming (gerund noun) had improved a lot since last year.” Whether that was Goodman’s intention will remain a mystery, but because it’s so ambiguous as to what he meant it’s really not smart to call him out on it.
