UK Fans of the Day Want Afternoon Notes


A few nipples, I mean notes, for this fantastic Tuesday….

 – The final freshman profile is posted over at and this time features point guard Marquis Teague.  Teague seems to be the most mysterious of the four highly regarded incoming players and the Coach Cal article takes an interesting look at how Teague’s not intimidated by following in the footsteps that came before him for Calipair because he’s been carrying lofty expectations because of his last name for years.  He also said that he’s been working on his pick-and-roll with the guys he’ll call teammates next season and the chemistry is coming along nicely:

“It’s going to help a lot,” Teague said. “We’re all real, real close friends. It’s like a brotherhood. We’re developing a bond from the jump and I think we’re going to have better team chemistry. All that stuff helps on the floor. We’re figuring each other’s games out a little bit already, so when we’re on the court I know where they’re going to be already and they know where I’m going to be.”

– In what should be a growing theme over the next few weeks, the Randall Cobb love continues to build.  Scott Van Pelt talked about Cobb today on his show, tabbing him as a guy that could make an impact next season as a rookie.  We’ve said it a million times, but there might not have been a better situation for Cobb to walk into.  The Packers clearly have an immediate need in the return game and he’s going to have a chance to contribute in the slot as he plays alongside established receivers and catches balls from an outstanding quarterback.  They’ll make a Disney movie about him someday.

 -This is not a joke:  Rick Pitino got a contract extension.  It was announced today that Pitino signed an extension through 2017 and will have his salary raise to $3.9 million per season in 2013.  It’s almost like Morehead and floor sex never happened.  What was that phrase Jurich used to say?  Something like overpay and underperform?

– There was a post on here last night about coaches banning Twitter for their teams and CBS’ Gregg Doyel says what we were all thinking in a column today.  Doyel points out that these Twitter bans are about protecting the coaches, not the players.  That, of course, is very out of character for college athletics, which have always been about the athlete.  Right?  Right?

 – Wondering what’s going on in the SEC this summer?  Jeff Goodman has an SEC roundup.  Cool.

If you missed Kentucky Sports Radio this morning, make sure you check out the podcast below.  Matt and Mark Krebs talked at length about who is Kentucky’s best basketball player, who needs to step up this year for the football team and the awkwardness of eating alone.  Give it a listen.

    Yes but stubhub charges 15% commission and I have had it listed there ever since I found out I could not go and have had no luck. I thought if I went to where the most interested people would see it, I would find someone who was interested in going.

    Louisville can’t get any decent recruits because the kids these days are afraid of Pitino… he’s now the creepy old man down the street that offers everyone a butterscotch.

    I’m not going to be suprised if he turns to dust on live TV during a game soon. HDTV was the worst thing to ever happen to the little old fella.

    I do love him being at uofl though. At least we know they won’t have a chance to be relevant until sometime after 2017 now.

    One more abortion and Pitino gets a lifetime contract? Everybody knows it takes 15 or 16 years to turn a program around right?
