U.S. Navy UK Fan At Sea Wants Very Brief Afternoon Notes and Podcast

Vincent Aldrich has been stuck in the Arabian Sea for three months, but that hasn’t kept him from following Kentucky’s magical season. Like you, he’s on pins and needles right now, awaiting the decisions of Kentucky’s starting five. And he wants today’s very brief notes and podcast…

— It won’t be long before we’re twelve scoops deep into a tub of Rocky Road with tissues all over the floor, saying goodbye to five of the guys who brought the national title back to Kentucky. All five players are expected to announce that they’ll enter this summer’s NBA Draft, when they gather around the microphones at the Joe Craft Center later this evening. I’ve seen a few rumors in our comments section about Lamb and MKG returning, but I think you’d be foolish to buy into that prediction. They’re all leaving. It’s all over with. This is the final goodbye.

— Tonight’s press conference will be aired on ESPNews, ESPNU, and ESPN3. ESPNews will have live coverage during the 7:00 p.m. edition of SportsCenter while ESPNU and ESPN3 air the presser in its entirety.

— In case you were wondering, the press conference was pushed back because of unforeseen travel arrangements and academic schedules. Pat Forde thinks that is funny:

And he wonders why everyone in his homestate hates him.

— Watch Beisner and Perrin discuss UK’s NBA projections on KSTV:

— We’ll be live blogging tonight’s press conference beginning at 6:45 p.m. Join us here for a fun discussion while you watch five of your favorite people announce their decisions at 7:00 p.m.

— Ryan Lemond joined Matt Jones on this morning’s radio show. Come get your podcast…

    Pat Forde needs to stay in Loserville and keep his mouth and twitter shut! Not funny at all.

    if putting down young folks is all forde has time to do, it’s safe to say it’s time for him to get a life so that he can do something meaningful. he is a sad excuse for a human being.

    Pat Forde said one of the reasons “he left” ESPN was because Yahoo gave him more time to do investigative journalism. No, really, that’s what he said.

    Yo forde, the joke is on you – we dont care about school… No really, the players will finish the semester in good standing and keep our APR higher than uofl’s.

    Oh and forde, maybe you should ‘investigate’ how many other assistant coaches in the ncaa make $250,000 like junior pitino did at uofl. My guess is NONE. You and uofl fans should be all over jurich and pitino for that – hell, I guess it paid off if 1 final four every 5 years is your goal.

    Hope none of the uofl fans flip any cars or riot down at 4th St tonight at the final four celebration. That cracks me up every time I hear that… ‘final four celebration.’ Hahahaha

    And I think Pat Forde’s nose looks like it’s been up Rick Pitino’s ass.

    Too much energy is wasted paying attention to Forde. He will not change any more than any of the people who waste time hating him will change. He is extremely biased in his views and so are we. Believing writers should be objective is also a waste of energy.

    Thank you SIR for your service.
    No one cares what forde says. If he’s too stupid to figure out that Cal is a marketing genius by now, then so be it.

    I actually think that Daruis could end up being a lot like Robert Horry. He was a physical guy that could knock down big shots and was pretty versatile with a long career. Was never the go to guy on a team, but a reliable spot up guy with no fear of big shots.

    I saw Pat Forde at Drakes a few months ago. I gave him a light shoulder check as he walked by just so he knew UK fans were around. He thanked me and shook my hand. I said your welcome and all my friends laughed. I sort of felt bad about it at the time but eveyone was egging me on. After that twitter message I no longer feel bad I only wish I had checked him a little harder. Just losing your balance a bit wasnt enough.

    I heard once don;t ask question you don’t know the answer to.

    Me you wanted an investigation as to how many assistant coaches make $250K I have news for you they can start at UK.
    Payne $250K. For the record Ptino made 275K which is alot of money but UL and UK both have football assistants making more than that.

    Also I am very impressed the UK is able to keep all the academics in order for the one & done guys in the spring. Hard to see how they do it when most of them have not spent much time on campus in 5 weeks.
