UK Fans of the Day Want Late Afternoon Notes

fan-of-the-day-july-12

A few notes for your afternoon consumption…

 – Matt is still putting in the long hours at the Nike Peach Jam event in South Carolina.  We’re posting the important nuggets that he collects here on the blog, but if you want to really keep up with the Jones, you can follow his MattJonesAAU Twitter handle.  That way, you’ll know that Rick Pitino and Brad Stevens are bosom buddies and Thad Matt has skinny ankles. 

 – So far today, Calipari has spent time watching the followin players:  Ricky Ledo, DaJuan Coleman, Nerlens Noel, Archie Goodwin and Brandon Ashley.  The two guys Kentucky spent quite a bit of time with last week, Perry Ellis and Shabazz Muhammad are both in Milwaukee.  I think Matt will drop by later with a much deeper look at today’s happenings.  Or not.  Can’t really make any promises either way.  But you hold on to that hope.

 – CBS Sports’ Matt Norlander is also at the Peach Jam and Tweeted out the following picture of a guy he said coaches are keeping their eye on the blue chip talent in the long sleeved shirt.  I just like that our man Bradley (KSTV camera man) is rocking the jorts.  Keep the movement going strong.

 – On a little more of a different note, ESPN is running a series on their college basketball blog looking at whether or not schools would be able to pay student-athletes.  In the latest edition, Eamonn Brennan looks at Kentucky’s financial situation and determines how feasible it would be for them to give stipends to their athletes.   The conclusion through a series of math-heavy paragraphs is that it would be a possibility for the school to make it work, thanks to the financially successful basketball program and the football team that pulls in some big-time dollars.  If your head hurts, don’t read it.  If you want your head to hurt, read it.

 – Finally, in news that was bound to come at some point, former Card Willie Williams has been arrested again.  The one-time high school phenom that was bounced from The U and Da Ville was picked up in Northern Kentucky on burglary charges.  According to the story, Williams had a brilliant plan to knock on doors to sell gym memberships and if no one answered, he’d break in the back door.  It seems he encountered a problem when someone simply just ignored his knock and then found him trying to break in.  Brilliant!

If you missed Kentucky Sports Radio today, check out the podcast below.  Matt checked in from South Carolina, Jeremy Jarmon stopped by and Ryan asked what is the strangest place you’ve seen a UK player.  Give it a listen.

    So Matt now doing the AAU rounds…I could see an odd couple roadtrip involving him and Maggard with them possibly stopping at Maggard’s comedy club in Mexico

    2 1 3 4 But hey, they’re all UK cheerleaders. Any would do. The second from the right might be higher if I could see her better.

    Anyone hear about the former UK cheerleader accidently busting thru a 4th or 5th floor door and fell 44 feet and landed on his feet? Hurt pretty bad but will survive because he tucked his legs against his chest and looked for the ground just as he had been trained.
