UK Fans of the Day Want Afternoon Notes

Photo by Alumbra Photography

With only eleven days until my own nuptials, I figured I’d give the nod to this group of happy Cats fans as Fans of the Day. Congrats to Justin and his beautiful bride. I hear the secret to a happy marriage is proper three goggles form, and if so, you guys are all set.


— We showed you Jabari Parker’s Sports Illustrated cover last night, but the story inside is even better. Parker, the number one recruit in the 2013 class, is a devout Mormon, and says he may have to make a choice between going to the NBA after his freshman year of college, or going on a two-year faith-spreading mission like his older brother. It’s a decision most kids his age wouldn’t think twice about, but here’s hoping Parker mulls it over during his freshman year in Lexington.

— Thoughts go out to the family and friends of Harry Stephenson, the former men’s basketball coach and athletic director at Transy, who died yesterday at the age of 95. In addition to coaching basketball, Stephenson also coached baseball and men’s golf, and was considered by many to be a pioneer in the Kentucky sports officiating, organizing several officiating clinics across the state.

— Can’t wait to see Sean Woods in a Morehead State polo? Jason Blanton of the Eagle Sports Network sat down with Woods to hear his thoughts on the job and where he wants to take the program.

— Looks like Gregg Doyel agrees with me that Cal would be the perfect replacement for Coach K as the coach of Team USA in the 2016 Olympics….

    Check out the 7-10 people in the back not throwing up 3-Goggles. WTH? Must be UofL/Indiana fans, and if so, they’re in the very back where they should be. Ha ha

    The irony to this picture is, UK has exactly 1 threat from 3pt land next season…. Not going to see much 3-goggles thrown up at Rupp in the near future.

    10- Also, he was their officiant, if you couldn’t tell.

    14 – I didn’t think it needed explanation, but yes, I could tell. If you came straight from a graduation, as the previous dude said, I’d imagine you’d disrobe prior to the ceremony.

    There are TWO people in this picture that aren’t throwin’ up the 3 goggles.

    One man (in the back) fails to get the 3 goggles memo, but he’s smiling, at least. That’s nice.


    One kid (on the left) not only dissed the 3 goggles, but he’s also frowning. Must be a Louisville fan. (Or maybe the ex-boyfriend?)

    it was the wife’s idea for everyone to throw up the 3 goggles.. I got me a good one, what can I say?
