Good morning lovely KSR readers. I hope you’re doing well, and not too hungover from the 10th ‘Drew Franklin is moving to Louisville,’ party last night. We’ve still got a few more for you over the next week, so get your hydration going and gear back up. Until then, here are a few morning links to get your Sunday started right.
— A lot of the talk the past few days has focused around potential freshmen contributions to the revamped Wildcat offense. Jody Demling has Joker’s take from media day on the matter.
— Meanwhile, Eric Lindsey from Cat Scratches says not to forget about the veterans, even if the freshmen look ready to go. Lindsey notes Adams and King as potential play makers, but also Gene McCaskill, a guy we’re all wanting to see get a fair shake out on the field.
— There’s been some debate over whether or not Calipari was taking a swing at Coach K the past few days, with most national writers saying he did, and most local writers saying ‘eh, dunno about that.’ Gary Parrish sides with the national writers in this piece, detailing why it was classic Calipari.
— The wonderful Mr. Hays linked to this yesterday, but with the new Ponzi scheme developments, I figure Billy Gillispie could use a little extra good press. If you missed it, Andy Katz wrote a nice piece detailing how Clyde’s life has taken some rough turns post Kentucky, but he has ultimately landed back in Texas where he belongs.
— The fans in Wisconsin already love him, and we already miss him. Randall Cobb gets praise for using his head as much as his natural talent. He’s gonna be a star.
— Finally, here’s a video of the World University Games Team USA’s scrimmage against the Air Force. It’s not quite as cool as scrimmaging against the Dominican Republic, but Darius is in there so make sure you watch it.
