I am sure all will forgive for my brevity. Day 2 of Bar Exam beckons tomorrow and then celebrations the world over. Couple of quick things…..
(1) Dick Gabriel apparently (although I did not hear it) interviewed Billy Clyde tonight who said that Alvin Brooks has NOT yet been hired as the third assistant coach. This is contrary to the reports on WLEX yesterday that the decision had been made. However, it is not clear whether Billy Clyde said he wouldnt be hiring Brooks or just hasnt. Either way, it is not official yet.
(2) Leonard Washington apparently got into a fight at the AAU event in Vegas as part of a team brawl that may have also contained Brandon Jennings, super phenom in the Class of 2008. The Kentucky staff was there watching Leonard and saw the whole incident. There is however no report that Washington was an instigator or a major participant.
(3) Rivals.com’s Jerry Meyer drops a bomb tonight in letting folks know that five star big man Terrence Jennings has UK in his top 3. Folks this kid is explosive…..think Amare Stoudamire with a jump shot. I love the kid and am amazed to hear this news. Big time scoop and unlike some sites (wink, wink), we arent afraid to give the link….
(4) Sterling Marlin, Tennessee resident and Nascar driver with a great voice has been released by the newly formed partnership of Ginn Racing and DEI. That makes me sad. Yes, he did do one of the all time bone-headed moves in Nascar history when he pulled the car off his tire at the Daytona 500….but he was loveable. Ahhh, as Sterling would say, “its just one of them racin deals.”
See you tomorrow after the breakout….until then look at Rob’s Top Football Players in Kentucky Ranking below…..its good
