Tweet Beat: The One with the Really Cute Picture of Randall Cobb as a Kid


As part of the never-ending quest to bring you University of Kentucky news in the most ridiculous manner possible, I comb the Twitter-verse each week for the funniest, oddest, and sometimes, nearly illegible tweets from your favorite players and personalities. Basically, I read Twitter so you don’t have to. Without further ado, here are the best tweets of the week.

This week, I’m debuting a new Tweet Beat award: the “Smdreads Tweet of the Week,” which honors the best of the “good grief/seriously/oh brother” tweets in my timeline. The inspiration for this award came from its first recipient, Brandon Weems, who confessed earlier this week that, even at the ripe old age of 24, he still doesn’t know how to tie a tie:

smdreads, Brandon, smdreads

Moving on…

If those reports earlier this week about a new nickname for Josh Harrellson upset you, don’t worry: Jorts says he will always be “Jorts.”

There goes Michael Kidd-Gilchrist, making us all love him so much it hurts again:

Doron Lamb thinks the creators of NBA 2K12 didn’t do Enes Kanter any favors.

Don’t worry, Justin Timberlake: Eloy Vargas will help you revive MySpace!

Are Twany Beckham, Anthony Davis, and MKG planning to give the WBA a run for their money?

Terrence Jones called Marquis Teague out on being the team’s pickiest eater:

Hey MKG, AnthonyDavisSaysYourSocksClashWithYourShoes:

MKG got him back by starting a Twitter rumor that Davis had found a lady love:

…which Davis quickly denied.

I’ll be sure to let you know what happens next week on “As the Lodge Turns.”

Judging from Twitter, texting has made dating more than one person easier than ever. Right, Ryan Harrow?

Darius Miller continued shh (shake his head) at that special breed of Cat fan that expects players to devote 145% of their time to basketball:

Twany Beckham
keeps his locker incredibly neat.

This week, Patrick Patterson played “21 questions” with his fans on Twitter. I think you’ll like this answer:

You weren’t the only one watching the Kentucky/Arkansas game on Tuesday:

Antoine Walker made us all feel old with this #grownuptweet:

If that didn’t make you feel old, this will:

Walter McCarty joins the masses of teenyboppers, middle-aged ladies, older gay gentlemen, and midwesterners who tweet about “American Idol.” At least he owns it:

Definitely study abroad, Aaron.

If there’s a Twitter fight involving a member of the BBN, you know Rex Chapman‘s gotta chime in:

…which led to Bret Bearup throwing in his two cents…


Yup, pretty sure that wins “Tweet that Makes You Go Awww” x 100.

Finding a “Bookie Tweet of the Week” was a little difficult this go around. Bookie hasn’t been tweeting much lately, which has me a little worried, especially when I read things like this (and Google tells me they’re not song lyrics even after I’ve corrected the spellings):

I don’t like how sad that sounds, so I’ll choose this one about him sliding around in last week’s “snow” instead:

Cheer up, Bookie! Until next week, RT plz?

    I went to Willis’ game tonight. He poured in 2 points in the first half and was dominated by some guy named Rusty. I’ve seen this kid play at least 6 times. He will be a bench jockey. Not sure why Cal wants him.

    9. Willis will be good wherever he goes. Not sure why you think you know more than Cal.
