Tweet Beat: Tougher than a Lexington Bike Gang


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.

It’s been a long week. And don’t worry, you’re not the only one bitter about Kentucky’s embarrassing loss to Little Brother on Saturday:


Keep fighting the good fight, Jeremy.

Meanwhile, most of us focused our sights on basketball to ease the pain. Bolstered by Archie Goodwin’s commitment, aka the first domino to fall, good vibes were all over Wildcat Lodge this week, starting with Ryan Harrow’s latest love letter to the Big Blue Nation:


Love you too, Ryan.

Eloy Centaurgus thought he’d try the “Like a Good Neighbor State Farm is there…with a sandwich” trick:


Elsewhere in the Lodge, Anthony Davis was doing his best Shagari Alleyne impression:



This week, Twitter taught me a few new slang words. First: “subtweet,” short for “subliminal tweet,” which ye olde Urban Dictionary defines as “directly referring to a particular person without mentioning their name or directly mentioning them.” Okay, so talking about someone behind their back on a public forum like Twitter. Man, that’s bitchy. Apparently there’s a serial subtweeter around the basketball team…


Also new to my vocab: “cuff.” No, not like a pant cuff or a handcuff…the act of making someone your main squeeze, or going public with your relationship. As they used to say in the olden days, “go steady.” Well, Eloy may have found a lucky lady he’s ready to “cuff”:


Speaking of the ladies, backup QB Maxwell Smith has a new line he’d like to try out…


I’d say stick to football terms, Max, but it’s not as though our offensive schemes are that sexy these days.

Maybe Max can help Darius Miller and Randall Cobb with their lady problems?


I spend a little too much time reading into Aaron Boyd‘s proverb:



Keeping with the football tweets, someone needs to get Forrest Gump’s mom over to the dorms STAT!


After a rough loss against the Cards, Danny Trevathan “did him” and treated himself:


Retwisted and ready to go!

Our boy Bookie seems to have found solace in Fashion Week…maybe he watched the shows online with Ryan Harrow?


Some of your favorite Wildcat alums took time to call out younger Cats on questionable tweets…

harrow-cuz krebs-miller

Nicely done, Krebs. Treat yourself to some pickled pig lips, why don’t you?


Jon Hood called out some #oldtimerstudent for his antiquated Nokia ringtone:


Hey, those Nokia phones are built like tanks…don’t be hatin’. #oldtimertweet

Jodie Meeks doesn’t tweet much, but he couldn’t help but share this story. Ten bucks says the lady was Annie!


Little Brad Calipari makes his Tweet Beat debut by letting Jorts know he’ll “eat” him with his “ridiculous post game”:


Should we be worried that Perry Stevenson is retweeting One Tree Hill quotes?


Between tweets about Dolphin Tale and world peace, Ashley Judd further proved her UK fandom by pointing out the silver lining in the conference realignment:


Rex Chapman and Josh Hopkins bonded over bike gangs: chapman-hopkins-bikes

Hey, Josh, think you can get Wesley Woodyard a role on Cougar Town? woodyard-cougars

Finally, here it is…your Bookie Tweet of the Week: bookie-aintgotnogurl

Just slippin on my pimpin…until next time, RT plz?

    Looks like Kyle Bolin (2013 QB out of Lexington) just committed to uofl. We were recruiting him. Way to go Joker. Can’t even get a kid out of Lex. Kid has a very impressive list of schools.

    Actually cuff is actually part of the backwards lingo. Way of saying bad words without actually saying them.

    1, actually UK never offered him a scholarship, and neither had a bunch of schools on his list. He is good, but we already have Towels coming in next year for Newton’s senior season, and Maxwell Smith is going to back him up. I wish we went after him, but I am not pissed about it. I bet he was waiting on UK to show him some love, so I do blame the coaching staff a tad bit, for not at least courting him.

    Oh, and I agree Joker blows! I can not wait to 25 draws up the middle this saturday!

    1 he just a junior since he committed as a junior then most likely he might change his mind especially with all the changing in conference stuff going on and we got patrick towels who looks like a good player

    Bolin is nowhere near SEC caliber. He will go to UL and his career will die there. It’s a joke if you think he can play high level D1 football.
