Tweet Beat: Gameday 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.

It’s GAMEDAY! You know what that means: Gameday tweets!

Randall Cobb sends love from Green Bay:

Looks like Coach Brooks is putting up the fishing poles and tomatoes to come see the Cats tonight:

You better believe Danny Trevathan is ready! Will he debut a new hairstyle tonight?


Earlier in the week, the freshmen on the basketball team took a field trip to Walmart. And, in the grand tradition of Daniel Orton before them, they picked out Halloween costumes and posed in them:

But, by far the best picture of the bunch was Anthony Davis in an odd camo pajamas combo:


Remember that picture of the freshmen Matt posted yesterday? Ryan Harrow also tweeted some pictures of the newbies:


Aww. #lafamilia

Rajon Rondo made an appearance on campus this week, and yes, some of the players were a little starstruck:


The team also took part in the campus wide water balloon fight. And thank god someone else besides me thought they might need a chaperone:


Although, during the season, I would also prefer the team to walk around with pillows strapped to their bodies to prevent injuries, but that’s just me. #maternalinstinct

Remember last week’s “lemonhead riddle” from Anthony Davis? Michael Kidd-Gilchrist has a new one:



The first full week of classes also means the return of the jersey chasers. You know, those girls that stalk the Wildcat Lodge in hopes of snagging a Wildcat to wear on their arm? Well, looks like there is already some lady drama in the Lodge:


In fact, lady drama seems to be all around our current and former Cats:

guy-girlfriend liggins-love

Those who weren’t having lady drama were watching the MTV VMAs. Seriously, Twitter was crazier than Hal Mumme in an Oakleys store that night.

Darius Miller asked a question many of us asked that night:


Patrick Patterson, always a role model, took the opportunity to use the VMAs as an example to younger people on how to act:


Patterson also shared his backup plan in case the NBA continues to be locked out:


Aaron Boyd has some advice for all you guys who are spending more time with the new Madden game instead of your lady:


And, in typical Aaron Boyd fashion, he follows it up with a introspective tweet that had me #smdreads.


Due to a last-minute Cards smackdown by Perry Stevenson, we have a tie for Tweet of the Week.


Does this top #lakehairdontcare?



What would an edition of Tweet Beat be without the Bookie Tweet of the Week? bookie-bugatti

Sadly, since there weren’t any good Wayne Turner confusing hashtags this week, I will finish up with an epic nerd hashtag war between our own Fake Gimel and UK/Twitter legend, Rex Chapman. Grab your lightsaber! (Ladies, I apologized for the forthcoming ball humor.) fakegimel-rex

Ugh. Balls. Until next time, RT plz? GO CATS!

    I hope Trevathan is kidding about dying his dreads like that. He might look like a skidmark. And I don’t mean the kind you see on the street…

    Man, women troubles would worry me more with athletes than a water bloon fight does.

    Somewhere, a child and his mother are dumbfounded at why a kids pair of pajamas are stretched two times too big.
