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.
Wednesday was officially “Julius Randle Happy Day” in the Bluegrass. Here were some of the best BBN reactions on Twitter:
Just when I was feeling a little bit down about my ‘Cats, Julius Randle swoops-in and brightens my day. #ThxBrum

TWEET OF THE WEEK: John Calipari
First of all, after Randle committed, Cal knew he couldn’t mention him by name, but look at our man subtweeting like a champ:
On the road recruitng today. Already on my second stop. About to go by St. Patrick’s for Mass. Hoping to grab some red velvet cake after.
