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

Tweet Beat: CATSPYs Fashion Police

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.

The CATSPYs were Monday night, which means it’s time for CATSPYs Fashion Police! Let’s get down to it:

Willie Cauley-Stein: At least one of my CATSPYs predictions was correct–Willie wore a bow tie. And a plaid shirt. AND SUSPENDERS. Ladies and gentlemen, we have a full-blown hipster on our hands. I applaud Willie’s effort, but the plaid is a little too much with me, and the suspenders hanging down just look sloppy. Final grade: B

Alex Poythress: Meanwhile, Alex also wore a bow tie, but kept it simple with a white or blue shirt (hard to tell with picture filters), black pants, and the ever present black frame glasses. He looks very sharp, as does his sister, who accompanied him. The best part? He’s smiling. Final grade: A

Jon Hood: It’s hard to tell with the Instagram filter/flash, but Hood appears to be wearing a dark gray/black suit with a metallic blue tie. A nice choice, but it would be even better had he shaved. Remember, Jon: #lakebeardisweird. His date looks lovely, and is totally sporting the appropriate color for the event. Final grade: B+

Twany Beckham: Twany saw that I predicted him to be the best dressed, and he almost proved me right. Twany’s outfit’s strength is in its tailoring, which is almost perfect. It’s hard to tell from the pictures, but his pants are either light blue or seersucker, the latter of which would send me into a tizzy of delight. The tie is just right, as is the fact that he took his mother as his date. A true ladies man, that one. Final grade: A

What, you thought the coaches were safe from this? Ha.

Mark Stoops: Coach Stoops looks great for his first CATSPYs, with a grey pinstripe suit and blue check tie. It’s hard to judge tailoring from here, but well done, Coach. Final grade: A

John Calipari: It is so good to see Cal in a suit again. So good I’ll even let the questionable tie pass. It’s fine, but I’d prefer so see something blue to mark the occasion. Final grade: A-

As usual, the Cat nails it. Aside from John Travolta in his prime, he’s the only one that can get away with wearing an all-white suit. The UK blue vest and tie are very festive and compliment his eyes. Well done, sire. Final grade: A+

Honorable mention: Jalen Whitlow

Digging the blue and white bow tie.

As we told you earlier, Nerlens Noel has been touring area schools over the last week to talk about the importance of hard work. One scrappy student made a bet with Nerlens and lost. The wager? Ten pushups.

Archie Goodwin had a bit of a Twitter whoopsies yesterday when he tweeted “It’s a marathon not a run.” With KSR-comment-section-esque speed, people rushed to point out the correct use of the saying:

Did Archie eat he own feet there?

Want proof that Twany Beckham has always been cooler than you?

Screen shot 2013-04-25 at 2.43.07 PM

Who knew being cool was as easy as taking a shirtless pic with some bling and aviators?

Maybe Twany should take a break from being cool and clean up his room:

He has more shoes than Carrie Bradshaw.

Tod Lanter really likes tortilla soup:

“La familia” example #4,021: Anthony Davis pulling up next to Twany Beckham and asking to go get night caps:

Have all the toppings you want, Twany. I’m sure Anthony’s buying.

Hey Tequan Hopkins! Sam Malone does not appreciate your shout out. Also, he probably doesn’t appreciate being called “lil dude.”

Does this picture mean that Nerlens has signed an agent?

Screen shot 2013-04-25 at 3.30.41 PM

Even so, I loved this picture Twany Beckham posted of him at Hillbilly Days last weekend with the Terrence Jones’ famous mechanical bull in the background:

I’m glad that Walter McCarty and I have at least one thing in common:

I’m not even sure why I really like it, but somehow, it becomes really hard to change the channel when it’s on. I blame Si and Phil.

I’ll be honest: I don’t really care about the NBA Playoffs until June, and even then, it’s a stretch. But, I do love that Nazr Mohammad is still contributing after all of these years.

He and Michael Kidd-Gilchrist are my favorite UK players ever. Nazr, I still have the ball and Sports Illustrated cover you autographed for me at the Kentucky Korner all those years ago.

Yes, PPatt, yes they do:

Congrats to Andre Woodson on the birth of his son, Andre Chandler Woodson III, earlier today:

Odds Andre gets his kid hooked on SmartFood popcorn as soon as he’s able to eat solids?

You know what’s American? Randall Cobb wearing a star spangled hoodie while spinning in a circle:

Can someone tell me how an Oreo Blizzard in a waffle cone is any different than cookies and cream ice cream in a waffle cone?

“Tweet That Makes You Go Aww” has to go to Brad Calipari, who posted this adorable picture of him and his dad on Instagram this week:


This week’s “Papa Brooks Retirement Pic of the Week” tells us that Karen has been doing an excellent job on her gardening this spring.

TWEET(S) OF THE WEEK: Willie Cauley-Stein

Willie Cauley-Stein had two epic tweets this week:

Now, to which version of “Wagon Wheel” do we think Willie is referring?

A) Bob Dylan’s original

B) Old Crow Medicine Show’s popular 2004 version

C) Darius Rucker’s recent cover

I’m going with C, although Willie’s hipster tendencies make me want to pick the others. Rucker’s version is everywhere right now, and I can see Willie hearing it in the car, turning to his buddies and saying “Man, that’s a wonderful song. I can really feel the lyrics.”

Not only does Willie feel beautiful music, but he requires the perfect lighting for his videos:

How long before Willie’s video shows up in the independent section of Netflix Instant?

Until next time, RT plz?

    Old Crow Medicine Show’s version came out in 2004, not 2011. That’s when it was certified gold. But if I had to put money on it, based on recent radio play, I would bet Willie is referring to Darius Rucker’s cover.

    Ya know, Dyaln never actually recorded a completed version of the song. Just a couple sketched lyrics and super-raw recordings that are so low-fi you’d never actually enjoy listening to them. Song was never actually completed until OCMS in ’04. In other words, #6 is FOS. Great song no matter who plays it, like so many Dylan-written songs that other people get all the credit for.

    FYI…unless he signed with Jay Z, he doesn’t have a car yet. The players don’t get paid until November unless they get a shoe deal. That’s why they charge for autographs because they literally have no access to money until then. Agents Do Not cosign loans so these guys are starting out just like everyone else trying to establish credit.
