UK Fans of the Day Want Afternoon Notes

Some notes for this post-holiday Tuesday…

 – Take a seat.  We have some large non-UK news to announce and you want to brace yourself.  According to John Clayton, there’s a 75% chance that the NFL lockout will end this week.  Clayton gave an interview to our dearly departed friend Zach McCrite, aka Big EZ, this morning on St. Louis radio and declared his optimism.  That optimism seems to be growing among other NFL beat writers and reporters online.  There might be professional football in our near future.  I think I speak for everyone when I say I can’t wait to suffer through another disappointing Cowboys season.

 – The debate that has carried much of the weight today throughout the Kentucky internet and radio world is what four faces would be on Mount Ruppmore.  Because of the vast awesomeness and incredible superiority of the little program we all love, you could survey a hundred different people and get a hundred different answers.  I think I’d go with Rupp (it’s named after him), Bill Keightley (as a fan representative), Dan Issel (so one of his life-sized hands could reach out and scare people at the bottom) and ___.  Feel free to continue the debate below.

 – A couple of former Cats played in a streetball league over the weekend in Washington, D.C.  John Wall put in 41 points and showcased his newly improved jumper (according to AFRO magazine) and DeMarcus Cousins had 29 and a technical foul.  Yes, a tech in a streetball game.  Boogie apparently didn’t like getting called for a travel (who the hell calls those in streetball?) and tossed the ball.  While it was impressive that he threw it without one-hopping it to his desired destination, Sports Illustrated’s Zach Lowe was not too amused.

 – Not to get lost in all of the excitement over Scout.com releasing their updated rankings, Max Preps did the same and also put Shabazz Muhammad as the top overall player in the class.  You can check out the whole list here.  Make sure you tell Jeff Borzello that you love him too.

 – The NFL might be close to a return but the NBA is not and the Orlando Sentinel writes that Daniel Orton and DeAndre Liggins will suffer for it.  The paper says that both players worked out in Orlando last week, but now are free to go about their business.  Handle it properly, gentlemen.

 – Here’s a pretty cool video of Oregon State’s Roberto Nelson destroying his body and a backboard.  He’s 6’3″.

 – Finally….Casey Anthony.  Not guilty.  WTF?

If you missed the show this morning, check out the podcast below.  It was awesome.  Lots of good Mount Ruppmore talk.

    Casey Anthony will get a spanking tonight, right after we have some crazy “I dodged that bullet” sex. SexInNursingHomes, back me up on this. Chick may be crazy but she’s got an awesome bod.

    Just one more sign that our society is rotting from within. Not that we were a perfect culture by any means 100 years ago, but at least monsters like this were dead within a few months of their capture.

    absolute embarrassment by the court system. if you want to blatantly kill someone and get away with it, Orlando is the place to go.

    Was the guy with the awesome wife beater tan line. Also, congrats to Roberto Nelson. I played high school intramural basketball and there were better players than in this video.

    1- I live in Orlando, may be I’ll get a chance to nail it. Plus it’s a MAJOR turn-on to think she would kill me during sex.

    Mt Ruppmore no doubters – Rupp, Keightley, Ledford. The 4th is in debate. No way to leave off Ledford, as so many people still consider him the voice of the Cats

    Depends how we are doing the list. If it’s player loaded, its gotta be Rupp, Issel, Ramsey, and Mashburn (to represent the younger generations).

    Otherwise I’d say Rupp, Keightley, Cawood, and Issel.

    11) What was Cawood’s last name. Exactly.

    Reasonable doubt is a helluva thing. Blame another one on the Prosecution.

    Whoever is telling people that owners won’t put the 2 & 20 rule in place for next year class is crazy. Cal isn’t worried about recruiting because he knows this rule is going to be in place for the incoming freshman. Cal more than likely wouldn’t even have enough scholarships to sign a bunch of kids.

    Billy Clyde, Eddie Sutton, Alex Groza, and Ralph Beard

    In all seriousness though, I would have to go Hall, Ledford, Keightley and Cawood. They are all like the founding fathers of UK basketball.

    Folks, she didn’t get found guilty because the prosecution had no proof she killed her kid. Clearly she lied. Clearly she was a terrible parent. But they had no proof she killed the kid. Without proof, you’re innocent. Be very glad our country requires proof of crimes. It’s bad enough you have to keep accused people in jail, but remember, innocent until PROVEN guilty. Prosecution didn’t do their job.

    5) If no 2 year NBA rule bringing us our frosh back, I hope we get either Bazz or Drummond in there, because we will lose a lot.
