UK Fan of the Day w/ Digger Phelps Wants Afternoon Notes and Podcast

Good afternoon, KSR readers. This young man has requested today’s afternoon notes and podcast. We better listen to him. LISTEN TO HIM.

— In case you’re just joining us this afternoon, the SEC media rankings were released today and your University of Kentucky Wildcats are projected to win the conference. The Cats received 17 of the 24 first place votes to finish ahead of Florida, Missouri and Tennessee. The SEC media voters also named Nerlens Noel to the All-SEC first team and Alex Poythress received second team honors.

— It’s Monday, which means we’re one day closer to Wednesday, the day ESPN airs a new episode of All-Access Kentucky. CoachCal.com has a new preview for this week’s episode called “Foundation To Move Forward.”

— Ryan Harrow is the 19th best point guard in the country, according to CBSSports.com. Murray State’s Isaiah Canaan is No. 1, followed by the SEC’s Phil Pressey from Missouri. Peyton Siva is ranked ninth despite never winning a game against Kentucky.

— Kentucky is losing a SportsNation poll on ESPN.com. Let’s fix that real quick.

— In football news, Taylor Wyndham’s beard was the story from Monday’s media opportunity. I guess we’ve reached that point in the season. Another interesting note from practice: Patrick Towles is day-to-day and will attempt to practice tomorrow. Scroll on down to read Rashawn’s notes and watch a video from Joker’s press conference.

— The KSR Dating Game is underway and we’re ready to start taking applications from the fellas. Guys, if you’re interested in being set up on a blind date with courtside seats for the Blue/White game, send an e-mail to Shannon The Dude ([email protected]) letting him know why you should be picked.

Enjoy your podcast…

    Incorrect ranking on Harrow at #19. It is because of the year off. He will be top 10–if not top 5 by end of year

    Is digger wearing clogs? What are those seriously UGLY shoes he’s wearing?

    Oh, and diggers gut wont allow him to get close enough to that table to actually sign autographs / or is that no ND fans even remember him???

    6… How is it bad news if a player as good as Wiggins is getting looks from Kansas and UNC? The poster may know Huntington Preps head coach but only Andrew Wiggins knows what he wants and i seriously doubt that our talent level in 2013 holds back a player like him from coming to KY. I just think the kid has his head screwed on straight and believe he will want to play with the best to be the greatest player in the world as he claims he wants to be…. Its a little early but the kid has the most upside ive seen since Lebron!!

    6- I don’t care that he’s looking at other schools . What bothers me is the guy says he won’t be coming to Ky. if he decides to reclassify .

    It’s not the kid’s fault he has to go all the way to South Bend to see a real football team play. He can still hate Digger Phelps as much as any other Cat fan if he happens to see him.

    I agree with Moe #15 Digger Phelps is a complete douche bag that hates UK. That kid is awesome he likes UK and ND football which is real football compared to what we are used to seeing!
