UK Fans of the Day Want Afternoon Notes


A few notes on this post-Memorial Day Tuesday….

 – The SEC meetings in Destin got going this morning and Coach Cal stopped by to chat with Buzz Baker and the porcelain man, Tony Barnhart.  Cal is the chair of the basketball side of things and joked that he will never go to the Final Four again now that he knows this responsibility comes with it before saying that his goal is to find a way to improve the SEC’s NCAA tournament profile.  Cal said he’d discuss it and get everyone involved, but did take a subtle dig at the Big East by saying that they’ve gotten 19 teams in the tournament the last two years and asked how many have gotten past the first round.  The answer is nine.  And of those, four have made the Sweet 16.  Cal wants to help the SEC get more berths.

 – He wasn’t done with his “Not to throw shots, but…” routine with the Big East either, throwing a little barb in about Duke and their culture of flopping.  Cal said that the new rule that places a block/charge circle three feet from the rim helps the Cats and their dribble-drive offense.  He likes that it takes the whistle away from the refs and makes it an easier call.

 – On The Leach Report this morning, Robbie Speer joind Tom and talked about the progress that Eloy Vargas made during their trip to China.  According to Speer, the talent that Eloy faced was a little better than what Josh Harrellson battled against last year and he showed some things that should make UK fans feel good about next season.  He said that in the past, “the only thing stoppin Eloy was Eloy” and Vargas found some confidence through the experience.  He also noted that he thinks he’ll bring to the team exactly what Cal wants him to bring to the team, which is a physical presence inside and improved rebounding.

 – During his time with the media this morning, former Louisville coach had an interesting take on coaching in the Big East versus the SEC.  Petrino said, “When at Louisville I thought we could compete with those guys (in SEC). You can in 1 game but week after week makes it hard.”  They don’t just give out BCS bowl berths in the SEC.  You have to earn them.

– With the NFL lockout not bringing much hope these days, Chris Collinsworth has accepted a job as the receivers coach at Highlands High School.  His son Austin graduated from the school in 2010.

If you missed this morning’s edition of Kentucky Sports Radio, give the podcast a listen below.  Matt and Mark Krebs talked about Cal’s Tweet last night, the Derrick Jasper and Billy Gillispie reunion and Kevin Ware’s trip to Captain’s Quarters.  Mark even threw in a new story about Clyde.  Make sure you check it out.

    I love the look on the guy’s face in the back ground. “He’s ALWAYS gettin’ the ladies. Why can’t we just shop?!? Is that too much to ask?”

    Doron’s buddy hanging in the back seems excited.

    FYI, Collinsworth has another son that still plays at Highlands. Lorenzen is the QB coach and Collinsworth the WR coach. Don’t see that in High School very often

    Funny, the guy in the back must be a friend of Doron’s, because he has a look like “Doron always get the hot ladies”

    I’ve been wanting to buy one of those shirts for a while, can’t find it anywhere. This is only the second picture I’ve seen showing one.

    Looks like Doron’s friend is bummed out again, he was making a play on the girls whne Doron walks in and steals the show. “Always a bridesmaid, never a bride”

    I was at the high school football final game in 2009 when Highlands played John Hardin. I met Collinsworth, who was rather chatty, considering that his son was playing in the game. He did’nt pay much attention to the game. The Highlands school is a football powerhouse, let me tell you. Those kids could play with a lot of colleges.

    Is that ‘Our Boy Eloy’ with his head in his hand in the backround?

    Yes #25, that is indeed Eloy. It is being widely underreported that he has gone from 6’11” this off season so far to 5’10”. Team physicians are baffled by this turn of events and he is obviously very depressed about it.
