Tweet Beat: Campout Edition


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 rough few weeks of football, the Big Blue Madness campout was just what the fans needed to get their swag back. In fact, I hope you’re sitting at your campsite right now, reading Tweet Beat by iPhone light. Maybe you’ll see some of your favorite players, who have been all over Twitter talking about the festivities:

Former Cats chimed in with campout nostalgia:

And you know Lexington native/CougarHunk Josh Hopkins had to get in on the fun, further proving his UK fandom by referencing “Wildcat” Wally Clark, a fixture at the front of many a Madness campout line:


Sadly, Clark had to miss the campout, as he’s preparing to move to Arizona. Still, impressive memory, Mr. Hopkins.

Yes, the campout is soothing the wounds from Florida’s whipping of the football team on Saturday. But being the underdog never stopped any Kentucky fan from talking trash. Case and point: Mr. Hopkins and his rumored paramour, Erin Andrews (and Rex Chapman, who, like the rest of us, couldn’t resist the desire to make it a threesome).

Ms. Andrews could not be reached for comment (and don’t worry, I will be asking Josh about this on Sunday at the Women’s Clinic).

After the loss, Patrick Patterson shot Chandler Parsons a comeback many of us have in our back pocket during football season:


Meanwhile, Mark Krebs thought he was watching the game on Sunday, not Saturday…


But that’s okay, Cats. Wesley Woodyard has some inspirational words for you:


This week also marked the birthday of one of our newest Cats, Michael Kidd-Gilchrist, who received lots and lots of well wishes on the Twitter. My favorites include a mention of my favorite dessert: brownies.

Hook a girl up, Ellen!

Maybe Cal can give Terrence Jones some public speaking tips?


The football team sought comfort after their loss on Saturday:

Meanwhile, Morgan Newton likes to mess with/to John Mayer? Help me out, youngins.


Maxwell Smith told Josh Clemons he would take a bullet for him…and then couldn’t wait for him to get off the phone.


Hey Jacob Tamme, I bet Ryan Lemond would fix your lawn for $33!


Looking for something to do on Sunday? Go see Stevie play in Cincinnati!


Randall Cobb tried to be all philosophical and inspirational on Twitter this week, but as usual, people couldn’t get their minds out of the gutter (cough, Ryan Lemond):


Boogie went to Firehouse then put out a fire in a house! CRAZY!


Brandon Knight got a little bit British with his fries:


Perry Stevenson and I continue to have the same pet peeves.


And in my Tweet of the Week, Nazr Mohammad takes a stand against butt padding (h/t to Fake Gimel):


Hey Nazr, the Booty Pop retails for $28…or so I hear.

Our “Tweet that Makes You Go Aww” award goes out to John Wall, who is pictured with some seriously. adorable. children: wall-babies

This week’s Bookie Tweet of the Week showcases a smackdown between our beloved YMCMB and “FakeTonyVanetti” (yes, one exists): fakevanetti-bookie

See me if you bout dat. Until next time, RT plz?

    2. There’s someone there who collects Cats’ autographs on his dashboard, and has for several years. Heard about him before, but there was a caller talking about it on Joe B. and Denny today.
