Everyone keep sending in those photos and keep taking Michael Gilchrist to Raising Cane’s when he asks. The newcomers are loving Lexington and the attention they’re getting on campus. Can we just start the season?
— DeAndre Liggins worked out with the Phoenix Suns today. By my count, DeAndre has been everywhere in the continental United States in the last week and a half – which is good. Alex Tyus was also part of the group working out in Phoenix today. His hairline was working out with the Jazz.
— If you’re in the Louisville area and you’re looking for something to do, the first game of the Kentucky-Indiana High School All-Star two-game series is tonight at Bellarmine. The girls kick things off at 5:30 followed by the boys at 7:30. Indiana is heavily favored with three McDonald’s All-Americans including our own Marquis Teague. Kentucky will be without Mr. Basketball and LSU-signee, Anthony Hickey.
— I asked LeBron James to break a dollar. He gave me 75 cents and told me to go see Dwyane Wade for the fourth quarter. #recycledtweet
— Tony Woods will not be coming to Kentucky. I think that’s best for both parties. The microscope would’ve been on him all season in Lexington. We wish him the best wherever he ends up.

– Today is Kate Upton’s birthday. Our dinner reservation is at 8.
