UK Pirates of the Day Want Afternoon Notes

Shout out to the crew at Helton Law Offices in Danville for getting into the spirit of International Talk Like a Pirate Day. “Captain Mom” looks especially festive.

Some notes of the day…

— Kentucky finally gets to play on an aircraft carrier! Hooray! In case you missed it below, ZagsBlog is reporting that the Cats will play in the 2013 Carrier Classic, along with Texas, N.C. State, Missouri, Florida State, Gonzaga, Wake Forest and Davidson. The Cats would likely face off against Texas on the USS Lexington in Corpus Christi. Pack your swim trunks and your flippy floppies!

The Big Blue Madness campout is well under way, with what seems to be record turnout. As of 9:30 this morning, 425 tents were up, which is well ahead of last year’s pace. And yes, yellow tent guy finally got his tent up:

— Rashawn has notes from football practice below, but here are a few quick hitters: Maxwell Smith’s shoulder is feeling better, but he admits he isn’t back to 100% yet. CoShik Williams is now doubtful for the Florida game. Also, according to Joker, yesterday’s practice was “bad,” but today’s was significantly better. Phew?

— If you heard the radio show/podcast today, you heard Jared Lorenzen call in to address the “feud” between him and Brent Pease, Florida’s new offensive coordinator that used to coach Lorenzen during his time at UK. When Pease was hired, Lorenzen tweeted some not-so-nice things about him, calling him “freaking crazy” and “brutal” and saying that the only good thing about the hire was “now we can shut them down.” Pease was asked about these remarks in July, and had this to say about the former UK QB: “I coached Jared. Jared is one of those guys that was talking trash when I took this job. So that’s good for about two extra launch plays, trying to get 50 points on those guys when they come to campus.

With the UK/Florida game days away and expectations for UK’s performance at a new low, those comments have come back up. Lorenzen told Matt on the radio show that the two have simply never gotten along, especially after Pease left UK with Guy Morris for Baylor. When asked about Lorenzen and Pease’s comments at practice today, Joker laughed and jokingly told Jared to “shut the hell up,” before apologizing to Pease on Lorenzen’s behalf. Maybe that means they’ll only hang 42 on us??

Thoughts and best wishes go out to Roy Williams, who is recovering from surgery to remove a kidney tumor. Williams, who is listed in “good condition,” will likely have to undergo another surgery next month, but expects to be ready to coach when practice start on October 12th.

— Finally, shortest press conference ever?

Sigh. I gotta go.

    Wow! Is that what its like for a head coach to be bothered and upset about a loss? Hmmm, I wouldn’t know. All I hear is excuses from ours.

    You cant really knock Lane Kiffin for this… he is 10 scholly’s down, and not deep. It is for him and USC not good to report injuries to the media because it really can be an advantage to opposing teams. He has stated over 100 times for the media NOT to ask questions about injuries because they are not releasing anything. The reported was asking if their Safety TJ McDonald was hurt… he got pissed and left. I would too.

    I love to hate me some Tarheels during basketball season, but in all seriousness, best wishes to Ol’ Roy for a quick recovery. Hopefully it was not a malignant tumor.

    Lane Kiffin is the classic example of a guy who was born on 3rd base and thinks he hit a triple. He’s had just about everything in his life handed to him based on his dad’s rep (including his smoking hot wife, who was apparently introduced to him by his father). People like that rarely handle adversity with aplomb.

    4) Kiffykins was at USC when they cheated before, he was committing secondary violations almost immediately at Tennessee, and he’s probably cheating at USC now.

    You all are over analyzing the video. Maybe Kiffin had to take a big dump and couldn’t wait any longer!
