UK Tattoo of the Day Wants Afternoon Notes and Podcast

uk-tattoo1

Our inboxes are no longer flooded with John Wall dances and UK babies, UK tattoos are the new thing. You know what else is in style? Afternoon notes and podcast. You know what I’m talking about. Enjoy…

— The road to the Olympics got off to a good start Tuesday for the Dominicans. Coach Cal’s Dominican Republic National Team defeated Cuba 90-60 in the first game of the FIBA Americas Tournament. Al Horford scored a game-high 24 points on 12-18 shooting from the field. Our favorite player, Jack Michael Martinez, recorded a double-double with 16 points and 10 rebounds. The team advances to face Venezula tomorrow morning at 10:30 AM. Set your alarm.

— Purdue head coach Matt Painter, who coached the USA in the World University games, had some nice things to say about Darius Miller and UK:

“That staff has done a great job with him because he’s really made improvements in all areas of his game. … He’s a great teammate and a good person.  I think Kentucky’s got an unbelievable chance to go far this year, if not win it all.  If Darius Millers is one of your guys in the mix, with a lot of young talent, he’s going to do a great job helping to piece things together because he’s that quintessential teammate.”

Darius played in all eight games for USA and started in five of them, averaging 5.6 points and 3.6 rebounds in just over 18 minutes per game. Miller believes the experience he gained with Team USA has prepared him to lead his young team back in Lexington, just as Coach Painter said.

While the NBA owners are off making absolutely no progress towards saving the season, DeMarcus Cousins says he thinks the whole NBA might end up in Europe if the lockout doesn’t end soon. Big Cuz is one of many NBA talents considering a contract overseas. NBA big wigs really need to start salvaging this season before guys get comfortable on the other side of the ocean.

Bruce Pearl works for a grocery store. I’m still laughing.

— Because it’s so easy to predict the postseason before the actual season starts, CBS already released its first bowl predictions. Stop me if you’ve heard this one… CBSSports.com projects the Cats vs. Central Florida in the Liberty Bowl on New Year’s Eve. Just go ahead and pencil us in for the Music City Bowl in any other bowl projections. Another year, another Tennessee bowl.

— Matt was joined by Mark Krebs on today’s radio show. The two discussed all the UK news and Gregg Doyel called in to give his two cents on the Kentucky Kernel issue. Take a listen…

    1-Awesome tattoo. Missing one key ingredient though. A big huge nasty pop-able back pimple. Every photo of a new tattoo HAS to have a gross, puke inducing zit.

    They can cancel the NBA season for all I care.

    Hey DREW, Pearl still makes more than you’ll ever think about making. You must suffer from an inferiority complex. It makes you feel better to hate on others who are better than you.

    4.) Yes, Pearl make hundreds of thousands more than me. And yes, I still find it funny that he is working for a grocery supplier. You call it an inferiority complex, I call it hilarious.

    Not sure about the comment “another year, another Tennessee bowl”, almost sounds negative. If it is meant to be negative, the people around here are getting spoiled. Six straight bowls would be an enormous accomplishment for our football program.

    There’s a limit to the number of foreign players allowed on those European teams. DeMarcus isn’t as informed about this as he should be. There aren’t enough roster spots for even half the NBA in Europe.

    8 – There’s 30 NBA teams with approximately 12 guys a piece on them for a total of 360 guys. Between Europe and Asia there are a ton of spots available. The guys who need to be worried are the foreigners currently on European/Asian rosters. You think they’d keep Andre Riddick in Belgium over Cousins?

    Matt, you’re a tool. Rest stops are completely acceptable. Gas stations are waaaay more skeezy.

    Man, if I had a dollar for every time someone used a puzzle reference to describe what players meant to a team, I’d be filthy rich.

    Thanks, Bill. Eddie, first of all who says tatty. Who comes on a UK website and says a “UK Tatty” is stupid?

    I love that tat. I’m going to have it made into a t-shirt.

    I think the flimsy looking shoulder makes that tatty look weaker.
