Another day, another set of beautiful women with big sunglasses…its a problem that someone has to address…right after Wall Street reform, I want to see Sunglasses reform. Make it happen!
— Some commitments today to stew over. Terrence Ross commits to Washington, but this could be interpreted as good news. There was a time when he and Terrence Jones planned on announcing together, presumably to the same school. A Washington commitment by Ross might suggest Jones is looking elsewhere.
— Louisville got a commitment today from Gorgui Deing for the 2010 class. While I applaud UL for getting some form of news that isnt just embarassing, Deing is a project in the most projecting sense of the word. I saw him play once this past year and left with the same feeling I had when I saw Teeng Akol at the Marshall County Hoopfest. Rick you need more players, fewer projects…thank you and drive thru.
— I spoke with Mark Krebs last night, who told me there will be 3-5 Barnstorming events in the next two weeks with Krebs, Ramon, Perry and Patrick Patterson. They are waiting on Pat’s final schedule but will announce the dates later in the week. We will have all the dates here and will let you know where the guys are going.
— I am a huge fan of Treme but after watching three episodes, I am not sure anything has happened besides Kentucky fan Steve Zahn getting it done. Still I will watch every episode.
— If you havent seen it yet, there is a Twitter disagreement between Tony Wroten Jr and the Frosted One with the latter claiming Wroten wont commit any time soon and Wroten himself going on Twitter and saying he is wrong and he will commit when he wants. I am not sure if Wroten has an offer yet, but it is my view that disagreeing with recruits on public forums isnt the best idea. But it is clear that Wroten is a unique dude…one moment he is talking basketball, the next religion, the next sex…he needs his own podcast.
— Havent seen a lot written about this, but Duke has taken over Kentucky. Well not exactly…Duke Energy, which is an offset of the same folks that gave us Duke University has bought LG&E and Kentucky Utilities…meaning that you will get your power from Duke. So long as they keep Laettner out of it, we should be fine.
— I was told that Ramon Harris and Perry Stevenson were brought in as special guests to help open a hairstylist school and spoke at the grand opening. Please someone have a picture and send it to me at [email protected]
— The Catspys are tonight, which means it will be an awards dinner for UK sports. It is modeled after the Espys, but instead of lame celebrities trying to make jokes with athletes, you will get WKYT personalities making jokes with athletes. Push.
One last pitch for this week’s KSR Podcast. We hit a lot of topics and when I listened last night, I was happier with it than as we were taping. Some good listening during a Friday night jam session with Drew, Turkey Hunter, Hubby and me. You can play it below or (even better)Subscribe to the KSR Podcast here on iTunes and get it as it comes out. This one is hopefully a good way to pass an hour if you have nothing else to do.
The 3 am podcast on the local media will probably be released later in the week and will come with a small charge just to make (a) us enough flow to make up for what we spent this weekend and (b) keep it from being heard by all the world. In all seriousness, I have long said that I thought paying for information on the internet is silly, and I still do. But as anyone who listens to it will certainly attest, there will be nothing close to relevant information being passed. In fact, if you listen you may actually lose information that was in your head before. But maybe you will laugh and Drew will be able to buy shoes. We shall see.
More all day….
