Tonight’s Debate(s)

…Is that guy on the left wearing a glove?

In honor of tonight’s U.S. Presidential Official Re-enactment of the Lincoln vs. Douglas Debates, we thought it proper to examine some topics that are subject to debate within the Big Blue Nation right now. Plenty is happening in our world and there are (at least) two sides to each issue. Comment and let us know which side you fall on, and then watch as the other commenters remind you that your opinion doesn’t matter. Unless they agree with you, of course.

Harrison Twins: UK/Cal vs. Maryland/Under Armour — The twins pick tomorrow and there’s been a ton of news flying around regarding their father’s comments about an Under Armour guy being the only person allowed to call the boys at this time. Will is play a factor? I don’t think so. Other top 2013/2014 recruits agree, as 100% polled by Jason Jordan of USA Today said the Harrisons end up at UK. But hey, SMU could still sneak in and steal this package deal from under everyone’s noses Ralph Nader/Ross Perot/Gary Johnson-style.

Football Coaching: Joker Phillips vs. [insert rumored name here] — After a great, exciting first half against South Carolina and the subsequent ass-kicking UK took in the second half, this debate is nearly as dead as Ron Paul’s campaign.

Patrick Towles:  Redshirt vs. No Redshirt — This is a tough one that kinda narrows the room for debate due to Max Smith’s injury questions. After deciding to not fully implement the highest touted recruit of Joker’s tenure into the offense and redshirt him, I think it’s kind of unfair to Patrick to burn his redshirt now that he won’t get a full season of proper playing time and experience. However, injuries make drastic decisions necessary, otherwise the coaching staff would be mailing it in. Seems like it’s too late to convince anyone otherwise now.

Barber Shop: Flat Top vs. Unibrow — I’m going to offer a third solution. Afro with headband, 1970s ABA-style.

Running Game: Jonathan George vs. Raymond Sanders — With CoShik Williams done for the season, these two guys are needed more than ever. Both have shown flashes, but who do we rely on? Both. They may be able to coexist as co-billed headliners for the Cats.

Leading Scorer: Noel vs. Goodwin vs. Poythress vs. Wiltjer — This would be the most fun topic of discussion. All four guys could lead the team in scoring, and it wouldn’t be out of the question to add Willie Cauley-Stein into the equation based on hearsay. I believe that Goodwin will take the most shots per game, followed by Poythress, and rightfully so. And thus that will translate into more points per game. Wiltjer’s three ball throws a wrench into the equation if he’s getting consistent PT due to improved defense. Noel could end up the most efficient scorer, however. Time will tell.

    I wish white folks were as racist as black folks and would vote 99.9% for the guy their color.

    I also wish Romney would talk tonight like he is a black preacher (like obama does in certain situations) to pander for the black vote. People’s heads would explode in anger – yet no one has a problem with a Harvard educated dude from Chicago talking with a southern / black accent.

    If the Harrison twins do pick Maryland, I hope it is not a start to the downcline of Calipari’s recruiting.

    …Is that guy on the left wearing a glove?

    No but if you look closely his “hand” is actually a bong. Or maybe a 9mm?

    Charlie Strong just turned down another job that’s not open and he hasn’t been offered.

    By the way, I’m also announcing right now that I’m not a candidate for the Arkansas job either.

    I question your sanity by even stating the possibility that Wiltjer could lead in points.

    Guy on left is wearing OJ’s glove while holding a dueling pistol.

    Going straight to the hoop. Will dunk on him as he flops and hopes to get a weak charge call. Knowing the bias of the mainstream media, they may call it a charge!

    #9 What are your sources?
    And guys keep the racist undertones off this board. We dodn’t need that crap here. Moderator please do your job. UK does not need press like that.

    I will have 3 UK hats under my podium. When its time for my closing statement I will bring out the Harrison Twins and the three of us will put on our UK hats at the same time. After waving to the over joyed crowd we will then walk off the stage.

    Noel? For real? Harrow should be in the debate not Noel. He is not known for his amazing offensive skill set

    Flat-top… I have a dream. I dream of showing our UK pride by filling Rupp with BBN blue Flat-tops… In Nashville and Atlanta, they actually fly our flag when we play Vandy, GA, and UT. I think we can take it everywhere – Gottaget9.com

    Anyone ever wonder why Drew Franklin of all pictures chose the one that heads this site? Looks awfully gay.

    Wiljer will be much improved. The guy was a 5* for a reason. Look for him to break out huge. The other fresh last year were just special. Kyle is on track like most freshmen are,year in the system under his belt.

    Romney just waxed that ass! “Mr. President you’re entitled, as president, to your own airplane and your own house, but not your own facts.” Quote of the night!!! Even Chris Matthews from MSNBC pulled a Charlie Sheen and said Romney was WINNING!!!

    #1 We throw nuts at black people and think their socialist, Muslim animals, but those darned black people are racist. I get your logic.
