UK Tattoo of the Day Wants Afternoon Notes


And you thought you were a real fan.

You want some afternoon notes? Okay!

– The big news of the morning was Shabazz Muhammad’s announcement that he will visit Kentucky during Midnight Madness, along with DaJuan Coleman. It goes without saying that getting Shabazz would be HUGE for this class, vaulting it into the top three at least. And there’s no better event to woo a recruit than Midnight Madness.

– In his recruiting chat yesterday, ESPN’s Dave Telep tells Daniel from Kentucky who he thinks Kentucky’s first commitment in the 2012 class might be. The answer might surprise you:

Daniel (Kentucky): Any rumblings from the recruiting trail as to when KY will get their first commitment?
Dave Telep: Daniel, in order to predict UK’s first commitment,you’ve got to know when the elite guys are deciding and so far we don’t know many timetables. My best guess, and it’s only a guess, would be Devonta Pollard and that’s only because I think others are going to play it out longer.

– On the football front, we found out that WR Nile Daniel did not qualify and will not enroll this semester. Apparently Daniel only completed six semesters of high school as opposed to the typical eight, which was the deciding factor in the NCAA’s decision. UK has announced that Nile plans to go back to high school in hopes of enrolling at UK in January. In the meantime, Joker hopes to be able to bring in another guy before the season starts. I nominate Kige.

– Other news from this morning’s practice: Jon Thomas will be the long snapper and Ryan Tydlacka will hold on field goals. Hopefully Randall Cobb gave Tydlacka some tips.

– Here come the football previews! First up is cn|2’s Chip Cosby, who picks the Cats to go 7-5 with, wait for it, an upset over Florida. His reasoning:

Before you suggest that I’ve gone off the deep end, let me explain. Florida wasn’t any good last year. And yeah, while they still spanked the Cats for the 24th year in a row, now they’re going through a coaching transition fresh with new schemes, etc. Will Muschamp is no Ron Zook; he’ll ultimately get it done in Gainesville. But it might take awhile. This will be Kentucky’s best shot to beat the Gators since 2003, when a late Jared Lorenzen interception sealed a 24-21 loss to the Zooker in Rich Brooks’ first season. I believe UK will pull one upset, and until I see them beat Tennessee with my own eyes, I just can’t predict it.

– Now that his career in basketball seems to be over, former Cat Walter McCarty is focusing on music. That’s right, soulful, slow jam music. McCarty will be performing at the Lexington Opera House this Sunday night to promote his new album Emotionally, which, you can guess, features slow jams and “reflects his own musical passions as a fan of Michael Jackson, Brian McKnight and Boyz II Men.” Oh goody. Can I get a media pass to that?

– In Nashville tonight? Come to the SEC Kickoff Block Party in the Gulch. $15 gets you beer, bourbon, BBQ, and the opportunity to heckle Clay Travis. All proceeds go to the Monroe Carell Jr. Children’s Hospital. Put on your blue and come do a Cat chant with me.

– Finally, Oregon unveiled their new Nike pro combat uniforms today. Can you say “Darth Vadar”? Ten bucks says Fake Gimel buys one.


Here’s today’s podcast. Matt and Ryan talked about the UK Football Luncheon, Billy Gillispie’s latest troubles, expectations for Kentucky football, and Matt interviewed UK football legend Sonny Collins. Give it a listen:

    This guy is an embarrassament. The line beard makes me want to hurl. Part of the tradition of UK is to stay classy and not be like little brother.

    How does someone not know they’ve only completed six semesters of high school? I question the kid should even attempt to go to college.

    A football player with a waist like that would get snapped in half.

    I wonder why Walter isn’t doing his show in Louisville? Jurich wouldn’t let him use the Yum! Center? Freedom Hall is booked? Louisville fans suck and don’t support anything or anyone when they leave the program? They always come home again. Maybe this one shouldn’t. Traitor.

    That guy looks fast just wearin’ that uniform. Don’t know if it will help his speed or not but he looks ready to receive a speeding ticket.
