UK Fans of the Day Want Afternoon Notes

fan-of-the-day-august-17

It’s almost Friday.  Almost.  Notes:

 – Ohio State is in trouble.  Miami is in trouble.  Blame the system?  Hell no!  Blame LeBron James!  Or at least that’s what I think CBS basketball blogger Matt Moore is saying his latest post.  Moore points out that there are three prominent schools with ties to LeBron James and now Kentucky is the only one not in trouble right now.  And that’s unbelievable to him.  Read if you dare by clicking here.

 – We’ve heard plenty about the possibility that a few former Kentucky players might be spending their lockout time taking some classes in Lexington.  Tracee Hamilton of the Washington Post loves it.  Loves it!  In her Wednesday column, she applauds John Wall for looking to go back to school and thinks it sends a great message to the kids.  Read her article here.  It’s slightly more intelligent than the first.

 – Even though they dropped two straight against that crafty Domincan team this week, the UK Pros team featured three players ranked in the NBA’s Top 100 list compiled by Sports Illustrated.  Rajon Rondo checked in at #27, Tayshaun Prince was ranked at #61 and John Wall rounded out the group at #72.  Full list here

 – As we approach and end to the month of August, we get closer and closer to the end of the Kaleb Tarczewski watch.  Tarczewski’s AAU coach told the Arizona Star that the five-star big man is still sticking to his original schedule and should announce his college choice at the end of the month.  He’s going to choose between UK, Kansas, North Carolina and Arizona.

 – Because I’m hoping that Sports Illustrated will send me a royalty check, here’s another link to their fine work.  In a recap of the preseason’s first week, a number of winners and losers were picked, including Randall Cobb, who earned some praise.  Here’s what they had to say about his fine work: 

Looks like the Packers definitely have another play-maker in second-round receiver/return man Randall Cobb. Green Bay lined Cobb up in the slot against Cleveland, and the Browns couldn’t cover him, giving up a Packers-best three catches for 60 yards, all of them good for first downs on gains of 13, 19 and 28 yards.

Full recap here.

If you missed Kentucky Sports Radio this morning, check out the podcast below.  Matt recapped another fun night of exhibition basketball and talked about what the Miami scandal could mean for the Cards.  Give it a listen.

    Was this picture taken at a “remember the 80’s” big hair party?
    I expect great things from Randall Cobb, I really think he has the work ethic and desire to be something special in the NFL.

    I just do not understand the level of national hate associated with UK basketball…? I would understand if UK had won 30 NCAA Championships and everyone else zero, everybody gets tired of seeing the same team win all the time…Understood. But why don’t we see it with UCLA or UNC? Last time I checked UCLA has 4 more banners… And yeah poor lil duke gets a little hate every now and then from fans in general. But not anywhere close as UK! Sad thing is though, the spear head of all this hating is the media. Don’t know if Coach Cal doesn’t suck up enough to certain media memebers or what? And the story above is just another example of it, they never have any facts or substance. What has happened with journalism as a whole? You dont have to have any facts, you can just write whatever! Especially if its about UK or Coach Cal!
    Just sad and unfair, and I’am sick of it!

    7. Seems ‘hate’ as you call it accelerates when a team is on top. I agree some of it is Cal. Some is Kentucky’s consistency. Some of it is long time despite of Adolph Rupp for whatever racial issues took place with him. I think the last reason is pretty lame today and is hopefully past until the film Glory Road: The Sequel.

    As long as we are in the headlines we will be a target. Actually I like this better than having no mention of attention at all. I remember how frustrating it was when we were not in the Top 25 and I never could get a score of our games on ESPN’s screen crawl.

    Enjoy it bro! Revel in it! Cats are back!

    Little brother gave it a good effort last night….messing w/ the lights, a few line-beards trying to talk trash, holding up flags, a coach denying any knowledge of the events, etc…but all came across as very lame and weak. Go to bed little brother…the bigs boys get to stay up late.

  15. Moore is a hack & his editor is worse

    “So what can we take from James having sponsored two out of three programs with recruiting violations and massive scandals on their hands? The clear answer is that James is cursed.”

    So according to Mr. Moore, UK is one of three programs with recruiting violations and massive scandals on their hands along with Miami and OSU, and James sponsored two out of those three programs. Nice reporting, hack, and excellent editing.

    SI should pay you royalties? Or you should pay them for providing original, interesting things for you to lazily post instead of thinking of your own stuff?

    Those chicks are 80’s style hot/warm. I can hear ’em say: Come on in ‘har’, in the bitchin’ kitchen; just avoid the boots, leggings, but we ‘got towels’. The outfits are Quasi-prophylactic.
