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

Tweet Beat plays Keeneland 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.

Okay, kids these days: are the shoes Kyle Wiltjer and Jarrod Polson wearing cool or not cool?

While the lazy part of me really digs the velcro closure (more adult shoes need velcro if you ask me), they look a little bit like nursing shoes. And white is never a good idea, unless you want to spend your down time cleaning and shoe polishing. But again, I am not hip to sneaker culture.

While in Brooklyn for the Jordan Brand Classic, Julius Randle and Andrew Harrison got to meet Spike Lee:

While you’re at it, get used to kissing trophies, Andrew:

And now, for Tweet Beat Fashion Police with Sam Malone and Tod Lanter:

Let’s turn it around on them. Here’s a picture of Brian Long, Alex Poythress, Twany Beckham, and Sam Malone at Keeneland from last weekend:

My Fashion Police grades:

Brian Long: A simple button-down shirt and slacks is appropriate Keeneland attire, although it seems the Jersey in Long led him to spike his hair up into a little faux-hawk. A pair of shades would really complete the outfit. Final grade: B

Alex Poythress: Scholarly Alex! Alex donned some glasses for his trip to Keeneland, along with a chambray shirt, cargo shorts/pants, and some serious ear bling. For some reason, the button-the-top-button-of-your-shirt trend has taken off, which I’m not a fan of, but whatever. I like the glasses, but the cargo pockets bring Alex’s grade down. Final grade: B-

Twany Beckham: You knew Twany, the Lodge’s resident ladies man, would dress up the most out of the four. Twany’s sporting a buttoned up shirt, slacks, and tie, but what’s that?!?!? A cell phone holster?? What are we, 55? Twany’s cell phone holster drags his otherwise sterling score down. We are not that old. Final grade: A-

Sam Malone: Malone’s rocking some scruff to go with his Polo button down and khakis. I like the shades, and the beard actually doesn’t look too bad on him. Final grade: B+


How did UK players respond to UofL’s championship?

Attaboys. #GottaGetThatRing

UK’s former players were also very respectful:

While Bobby Perry‘s reaction was a little bit more like mine:

However, to all those UK students who cheer for both Louisville and Duke: Perry Stevenson does not approve.

Nerlens Noel’s birthday was Wednesday, which tradition says warrants him a batch of Ellen Calipari’s famous brownies, but Noel, unbelievably, doesn’t like chocolate.

Who doesn’t like chocolate?! Blonde brownies for Nerlens, I suppose…

Here’s a question: will Twany’s teammates continue to “nightcap” once Twany’s graduated?

When he’s not “cappin’,” Twany is putting together some pretty impressive breakfast art:

If there’s one thing Tod Lanter is, it’s honest:

FYI: best biscuits in the world? Loveless Cafe in Nashville.

Ever wonder what Patrick Patterson reads in his down time?

Life is rough for Darius Miller:

When he’s not posting creepy photoshops on Twitter, Joker Phillips is running, with the help of JD Shelbourne.

Okay Winston Guy, I’m impressed with your 61″ box jump:

Earlier this week, Morgan Newton seemed skeptical about the prospect of 50,000 fans attending UK’s Spring Game. While the number of tickets sold is actually closer to 42K, Morgan deleted the tweet after some backlash from the fans. However, Maxwell Smith saw it:

Morgan insists he wasn’t hating:

And promises he’ll be there, too:

It’s got to be a little strange for the outgoing seniors on the team to witness the excitement building around the program right now. While I’m sure they’re happy for their former teammates, do I sense a little jealousy at the prospect of 50K coming to a scrimmage when maybe only 30K came to their Senior Day? (Totally natural, by the way.)

I don’t think this was his intent, but if this was Randall Cobb‘s response to Joker Phillips’ “Joker” photoshops, then he is my favorite person ever. (Even though he kind of already is.)

Jared Lorenzen has the right, if slightly skewed, attitude about the current state of the UK/UofL rivalry:

This might be the first negative tweet I’ve ever seen from Rich Brooks:

Get this man to a fishing hole, stat.

In your “Bookie Tweet of the Week,” Bookie has high praise for UK’s CATS tutoring program:

This week’s “Tweet That Makes You Go Aww” was easy. And heartwarming: Screen shot 2013-04-11 at 11.38.36 AM

TWEET OF THE WEEK: Josh Hopkins

Next season starts today. Until next time, RT plz?

    Cell phone holster just means you are on your grind and can’t miss those important calls.

    The shoes that Polson and Wiltjer are wearing are meant to be a joke… Hence the “Let’s get some shoes” video. Look it up on YouTube.

    Isn’t a prescription needed to get those shoes?

    If you’re a 70 year old man strolling along the boardwalk those shoes are cool.

    Wiltjer’s cute videos aren’t as amusing after this season.

    All white shoes with boxy straps? Cool if you’re 4 or 94. Not so much in-between.

    Rich Brooks, don’t go LAX. Go Ontario or John Wayne.

    The pics of the Harrison’s with Spike are funny. I’m sure they know who he is but I bet they don’t know why he’s famous. Do the Right Thing came out in 1989! That was 5 years before they were born. . . and now I’m feeling old.

    Yep, I was looking forward to more of Wiltjer’s videos of him goofing off in the off season instead of hitting the weights and the track. I guess he’ll be happy getting 8-10 minutes a game next year, if that.

    Guys lose phones constantly. I remind my guy to wear the holster because looking under seats is annoying. Plus having radiation near your organs is not a smart idea.

    Would you like to explain that?
