University of Kentucky Basketball, Football, and Recruiting news brought to you in the most ridiculous manner possible.

Tweet Beat: Jersey Chasers, Josh Teater, and Jorts eatin’ nails


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.

After a few dull weeks, your Tweet Beat regulars really brought it this time around, forcing me to play favorites. Yes, that means no tweets about seeing “Red Tails” (because seriously, everyone ever associated with Kentucky seems to have seen it in the past seven days). Leggo!

Even though Drew stole my thunder by posting the picture of Rex Chapman in his treadmill gear earlier today, Rex did a gal a favor by tweeting this gem:

Check out the cans on that one!

Guys, if MKG has his eye on your wife, watch out, because odds are he’ll get her.

As will Darius Miller. Or DeMarcus Cousins.

Probably even Kyle Wiltjer.

Look who was hanging out at Tin Roof this past weekend:

Dang, must have missed the blip on the Golden Eyes radar…

Josh Hopkins brought the words of wisdom this morning for all you Negative Nancies out there:

Hey Alex: I see you practicin’.

Even though he calls her his “future wife,” Eric Bledsoe and Ashley Judd claim their love is chaste:

If you couldn’t tell, Ashley was all over Twitter this week. After a fan criticized her for not going to every single UK game, she fired back like a true Kentucky gal:

WOOO, work it, girlfriend! I just did two sassy snaps in your honor.

Drive-thrus are the one of the places you can learn everything you need to know about a person, right Matt?

You gotta eat!

Looks like Sam Malone and Jon Hood have more in common that being on the DL. #lakehairdontcare

Maybe they’re recruiting for the WBA while they recover from their injuries?

Mark Krebs had an Anthony Davis sighting down in Nawlins:

You think Josh Harrellson is going to let a silly injured wrist stop his flow? Jorts don’t care, Jorts don’t give a crap:

Ramel got down to some serious post-holiday cleaning over in Israel:

Apparently “Franklin & Bash” is still on the air and Ron Mercer enjoys it.

I knew I loved Derek Anderson:

Yay! Brandon Weems learned how to tie a tie!!

Looks like Jared Lorenzen still hasn’t recovered from the pizza eating contest he and Patrick Towles participated on Sunday:

Speaking of former UK QBs, Tim Couch tweeted out his love for Cleveland Browns fans on Thursday, and the responses, were…well, varied:

Everything’s okay when you’ve got a smoking hot wife, right?

Tuesday was National Peanut Butter Day, which led to a bazillion tweets about peanut butter on the ole Twitter. Jacob Tamme and Stuart Hines discussed their favorite peanut butter combinations, and frankly, most of them gross me out. #PBandJellyFTW

Since moving out West, it seems Papa Brooks has replaced fishing with golfing. He’s even put in a few rounds with PGA professional Josh Teater, who’s also a Cats fan, Morehead State grad, and Danville, Kentucky native (represent!):


Wesley Woodyard is calling you skeezy Twitter ladies out!

A few minutes later:

Happy belated birthday to Perry Stevenson, one of Tweet Beat’s favorites!

Don’t worry, Perry, you’ve still got a few years left before the real world wraps its cold hands around you. Oh, and thanks for the vacation tip, Myrtle Beach sounds like a blast!

Ladies and gentlemen, your “Oh, Boyd!” moment of the week:

Welcome back, Bookie. #BookieTweetoftheWeek

…and I’m spent. Until next week, RT plz?

    I was getting a little over all of the Ashley Judd stuff, but “Kiss my Big Blue Ass” is the stuff awesome is made of. That lets her slide on 3 future dumbass comments.

    How could you leave out Doron’s tweet with the “whose feet is this on the team” accompanied by a rather unflattering photo? Hil-AR-REE-OUS

    22 – I actually had that one in, but took it out because the picture grossed me out too much. Doron needs to take that person to get a pedi!
