UK Photobomb of the Day Wants Afternoon Notes and Podcast

This poor soul’s once in a lifetime photo with Coach Cal was ruined by some guy in the background. Ruined!

Notes.

— Adam Zagoria tweeted this afternoon that he has confirmation that Marquis Teague, Terrence Jones, and Anthony Davis will enter the draft, but he isn’t so sure about Doron Lamb. Lamb’s father told Zagoria he doesn’t know if Doron will come out or not. That’s good to hear as a Kentucky fan, but don’t get too excited. Nearly everyone on Earth believes Lamb is gone.

— Expect to hear an announcement from all five UK underclassmen on their decisions soon. They should announce sometime this week and we expect all five of them to do it together in one press conference.

— Did you see #L1C4 at the Boston Marathon??!! Wesley Korrir, a former UofL runner and current Louisville resident, won the Boston Marathon with a time of 2 hours, 12 minutes, and 40 seconds. Louisville first, Cards forever! Finally! It fits!

— Speaking of Louisville guys who ran quickly through Boston, Rick Pitino played in a Pro-Am golf tournament over the weekend and he got mixed up when talking about his playing partner after the round. In an interview with the Golf Channel, Pitino referred to pro golfer Kenny Perry as Kenny Payne, Kentucky’s assistant basketball coach. Some are speculating that Payne is an option to replace Pitino Jr. at Louisville, which won’t happen, so this could be Rick’s way of pretending he and Kenny Payne are partners.

— On a similar note, Rick Pitino was wearing what Adam Lefkoe called “a serious bandage” over his left ear today. Pitino said he suffered a golfing injury over the weekend. Mmmmkay.

— And in NBA news, Daniel Orton had career highs last night in minutes (29), points (11), rebounds (4). steals (5), and blocked shots (3). Were we too quick to judge his future in the NBA??? Did we sleep on him too early??? Orton isn’t calling it quits yet.

— On today’s radio show, Matt recapped his journey through Kentucky with the coaching staff and the NCAA trophy. Have a listen for all the behind-the-scenes stories…

    Wasn’t he spotted with some funky cist growing out of his ear recently? Looks like Stage 4 syphllis.

    When looking at mock drafts, Lamb is no where near the lottery and often in the 2nd round. I hope the kid gets good advice.

    Sam, you posted that comment on another thread and no one cared about it there either.

    Had he trained with Three Stacks, he could have shaved another 15 seconds off that time!

    I was around the universe of college basketball at the time, as an undergraduate, and the funny thing is that almost everybody in that universe knew about Gilbert and UCLA. Jerry Tarkanian, then at Long Beach, and beginning his career as the sport’s pre-eminent brigand, never shut up about it, and he wasn’t alone. Once, the late, great Abe Lemons was asked on the radio what he thought of John Wooden’s famous “Pyramid Of Success.”

    Wayull, Abe replied, I could get me a Pyramid of Success, too, if I had Sam Gilbert buying me the cement.

    “I was not asked back on that program,” Abe laughed, years later.

    If they decide to have one big press conference, how funny would it be if Darius sat up there and “announced” with them. It would be good comic relief to a great day and it would show where we’ve come full circle in the last 4 years.

    The haircut makes Matt’s face look more “cherubic”.

    7- Similar to how it is a common tactic for the same commenter to post under different names to make his ignorant posts seem more valid. (Sam & Richard.)

    And by the way, the fact that you would so blatantly call John Short retarded, in an obviously insulting manor, proves that you deserve a first class ticket to hell. It’s one thing to talk trash, and another to belittle someone who doesn’t deserve it.

    Sorry, but “nearly everyone on earth” and Matt Jones opinion aren’t the same thing. Lamb may stay and Lamb may go, but the fact is “everyone on earth” saying he’s gone is making a total guess. The kids dad will know what’s up before Jones, Vaught, Zagoria, etc.

    Bradley… I guess you don’t read any other sites or articles besides KSR. If you did, you would know that nearly everyone on earth that has a blog, website, or a published opinion has predicted that Lamb would be leaving, including Calipari.

    KSR & MATT JONES: You have done this in the past and this is certainly the time to do it again. The BBN needs to know exactly who the person is who made the John Short comment above. Give us facebook, twitter, e-mail, workplace…anything you can get from their IP Address and E-mail. This person deserves to be called out for the trash that they are.

    Actually left ear injuries are common in golf. It happens when your scorned wife jumps out from behind a bush and whacks you in the head with a 9 iron. I heard JoAnne packs a mean pitching wedge too.

    I like this because that “poor soul” is my old roommate. He has met Cal numerous times so it’s no big deal. However if you are Jones and photo bombing it’s funny and a shame at the same time. I love a photobomb but if someone who rarely gets to see Cal you ruined a once in a lifetime pic.
