Joe B. Hall has sure been getting a lot of attention from this site and the UK fanbase over the last couple days. Hell, Hall is just 82 years old. Let’s give some props to John Mauer, former UK coach right before Adolph Rupp, who turns 110 in early September. I think we can all agree that Mauer, in his 3 seasons, set the program up for its success under Rupp. I mean, just look at that picture above. Mauer was an elite basketball player/coach, despite wearing a 3-piece suit. So sure, maybe Hall gets the attention last week, but this week I honor the great-grandfather of UK basketball, John Mauer. Let’s look at some links while we reminisce about those 3 glorious years under Mauer:
-Coach Cal profile on Kyle Wiltjer and his “old-school” game
-Desmond Allison’s life forever changed by dismissal from UK
-Coaches say that defensive line is where championships are won
–Tyty Thompson gives us everything we need to know about the women’s football clinic
-Cincinnati Bengals open training camp in Georgetown
We will have more today about a chance to meet Deandre Liggins today, more on that profile of Kyle Wiltjer, a breakdown of some UK targets, rule changes in the NCAA, and much more.
