What Greets A UK Football Recruit on Campus Visit

UK is hosting another big Football Recruiting weekend in Lexington beginning tonight. And when a visitor arrives on campus, you might wonder what they see. The answer is above. Recruit Jeff Badet tweeted out what was awaiting him in his hotel room upon arrival and as we see it, includes lots of literature, envelopes and other goodies. The pillows suggest to me the Hyatt (my regular weekend residence when in Lexington) and the Wildcat vibe is strong. This certainly is not the most fun part of an on-campus visit (at least one would hope) but it beats being greeted by a smiling Ryan Lemond, as visitors to the KSR Radio Show are often subjected to on a daily basis.

    #1 – love letters from co-eds or invitations to sorority parties. You can tell by the wild’n’wacky lettering.

    Wonder if this is the same bed Rock Hudson used to work his magic on uk football players back in the day?

    I like this. Classy stuff.

    Another example of Stoops I assume -as it has his signature on it.

    Paypalcal and all the other haters who care about coach cals money, check out rick “uk” pitino’s salary. Louisville cardinal fans are upset because they will never win a championship.

    This post would have been way better if its author had not misspelled the recruit’s name. The correct spelling is right there in the photo.

    12. Pretty sure paypalcal is employing a thing called “sarcasm.”

    6. NICE. Her beauty is translucent.

    I kinda figured student-athletes would bunk with current players, to jump-start some camaraderie, just like other students do when visiting a college they’re considering. When I went through picking a college, and granted that’s been 15 yrs ago, I bunked with a student in my field who gave me my tour, the lay of the land, advice, etc.

    Maybe there’s something in the NCAA rules that prevents athletes bunking with their (hopeful) new teammates? Anyone know?

    I don’t know. It looks like Days Inn to me.

    I believe this is a NCAA violation. The giving of papyrus, letterhead, and sweet nothing letters. Exceeds the permissible items list such as bagels, powerade, and granola bars.

    Ryan Lemond needs to grow a set and lay the smackdown on Matt’s a$$. There is no way I could take those smart a$$ comments that Matt is constantly giving to Ryan. Grow a set Ryan!!
