UK Fan of the Day on Denny Crum Court Wants Afternoon Notes and Podcast

Nice work, my friend. You deserve a handshake, but I’ll give you notes and a podcast instead. Let’s get to it.

— We’re just four hours away from the new Nike Hyper Elite Platinum uniforms! Can you feel it? Are you excited??? You hate it, don’t you?

— Dave O’Brien and Fran Fraschilla will call tonight’s game. Tipoff is at 7:00 pm and it’ll be televised on ESPN-U.

— Tennessee is 4-2 in its last six tries against the No. 1 team in the AP Poll. That’s a hell of a record. The Vols have won their last two tries — Kansas in 2010 and Memphis in 2008.

— Also, an interesting stat from the NBA, Brandon Knight is second among rookies in minutes per game. Only Minnesota’s Ricky Rubio averages more than Knight’s 32.6 minutes per game.

— I mentioned this last night in the night post but I know a lot of you didn’t read it because I wrote it. Let’s try it again so it doesn’t go unnoticed. Amile Jefferson’s father says his son is still considering Kentucky, despite reports last week that the 6-foot-7 power forward is down to Duke and NC State. Malcolm Musgrove said his his son stills talks to John Calipari and will wait until after his high school season to announce his decision. Jefferson’s Philly Friends Central High School starts playoffs next week and his season could potentially end on Tuesday.

— Tomorrow is college football’s National Signing Day. We’ll run a live journal throughout the day with updates as commitments roll in. Kentucky’s class is currently ranked No. 35 by Scout.com and it’s not in Rivals.com’s Top 50. We’ll see how it turns out tomorrow.

— The Rupp Task force released its final plan this morning in a meeting with important people in Lexington. The proposal calls for $250-$300 million for a renovation of Rupp Arena and the surrounding convention and civic center. That number seems pretty high on paper, but giant flags and stormtroopers are segways aren’t cheap.

— Andrew Cassady has an interesting post over on KSRCollege.com. He scoured the Internet to find the oddest UK collectibles available online and picked a couple of his favorites to share with readers. Dibs on the sketch card!

— Podcast after the jump. The last 30 minutes gets intense.

    The last 30 minutes is more than intense, they’re just downright bizarre.

    No way in hell that that wasn’t one of the Top 10 KSR broadcasts of all time.

    We have AD up there right now, but MKG needs to be beating Cody Z. Make it happen.

    Good ole ESPN-U-Don’t-Get-It. At least it’s not ESPN Classic.

    Either Jefferson’s camp just wants to keep extra attention for picking school X over Kentucky (like every guy Cal stops recruiting but the analysts still list UK as a team he picked over), or whoever said he’d narrowed his list was just a fan of Duke or NC State, perhaps even trying to get fans at a school like UK to attack Jefferson for dropping us and cause him to actually drop us.

    It’d be nice if Bennett and Shabazz would go ahead and commit so Cal would know who else he wants.

    The Vols are 4-2 against Number Ones thanks largely to Big Game Bruce (Pearl). Son, that dude could whip up a crowd into jihad-style fervor. But I think he’s selling used cars for Honest Vinnie in Miami Beach or somewhere. Karma.

    Let’s see if UT tries another mugging tonight, like they did in Malfunction Junction.

    If only they were actual stormtroopers the $250M would seem like a better deal. No Drew, we talkin’ bout SCOUTtroopers…

    I demand that “he urinated in the pickles” become a KSR soundbite.

    Jefferson is NOT a target for UK and just because he is listing us does not mean Cal wants him.

    Anyone got a stream address? I hate ESPNU. Even Movie Tavern isn’t carrying the game because they don’t have it either.
