What will the Harrison twins do? (Tuesday Show Thread)

They moved their announcement up almost an entire month and now we’re scrambling to find clues as to where the Harrison twins will attend college. Will it be Kentucky? Or will it be Maryland? Matt will try to put it all together on this morning’s show.

Also, the redshirt is coming off of Patrick Towles and there is roadkill in the kitchen in Whitley County.

    Is this an effort by dad to get the twins to commit to the Terps before they can make it to BBN?

    10:04 am October 2, 2012 Permalink

    Reading tea leaves, I think that Cal starts:
    PG: Goodwin
    SG: Mays
    SF: Poythress
    PF: Noel
    C: WCS

    He has talked a lot about Goodwin playing point. He likes big point guards. I also thinks he wants to play Poythress at the 3 where the offense would flow through him via dribble-drive. This gives him a lock down shooter on the outside (Mays). On defense, twin towers provide plenty of shot-blocking and Goodwin can get out into the open. Obviously, Wilter and Harrow would see big minutes off the bench.

    Based on the distance you are covering on Nicholasville Rd. from UK to the mall in rush hours, the traffic may very well be one of the worst. You are just on that road for too long of a time based on the short distance.



  37. Beans
    10:13 am October 2, 2012 Permalink

    If you look at the wording of the article, it says they are user-submitted suggestions of the worst traffic spots. It’s not based on any survey or study. They just slapped together 10 user-written traffic stories.

    Chicago traffic is worse, but Lexington traffic is more aggravating… like why when they decided to make a bypass, aka Man ‘O War, did they put stop lights along the entire thing? The whole traffic situation is a nightmare, it’s like a blind guy just hopped on a paver one day and started blacktopping.

  55. UKTexan
    10:17 am October 2, 2012 Permalink

    The Harrison twins will commit to UK on Thursday. If you remember the zagsblog.com report that the Harrisons’ wanted to be the first to commit to UK for the 2013 class. After the positive news with James Young over the weekend the twins fear that Young could be the first to commit. That is why they have pushed up their announcement date.

    57- if Towles was as good as everyone wants him to be, he’d have already seen the field this year.

    Don’t you think?



  63. Head Bussa
    10:19 am October 2, 2012 Permalink

    Ryan’s point is spot on. Actually commiting to Maryland would take a lot of due diligence and that would include going to their madness to really see if it’s what you want to do. They’ve already been to UK’s madness and this seems obvious that it’s Kentucky. Besides, in the past, I’ve seen their faces light up when Kentucky is brought up in conversation. These kids aren’t stupid and know where THEY want to play. In addition, their dad may like Maryland but most parents aren’t trying to control their kids lives.

  68. Another Perspective
    10:20 am October 2, 2012 Permalink

    I wonder if James Young’s visit and excitement about UK has anything to do with it.

    I noted in one of their father’s comments last week he was talking about “if no one else has committed.” I think they want to be the first to commit and position themselves as the catalysts for all the other stars coming to UK. Perception being what it is, they may know that team is going to be special and want it to clearly be “their” team.

    I think this is good.

    Someone may have said this, but it seems obvious… that the Twins picking UK is most likely the reason that their father pulled back on the announcement that they were going to Big Blue Madness. It would’ve given away the fact that they were picking UK. The one-two punch of the announcement of their school and then the announcement that they were heading to BBM would be better scripted, because then they will have the excitement of a commitment and then a visit. Hope that makes sense.

    78- What was I thinking? All we need is a QB to cover our weaknesses and win some games.

    I hope he can tackle, too.

    My point being, if Towles doesn’t offer the possibility for some wins (which he does not), why burn his RS if for no other reason than to curry some favor with the fans? JW and MN are still available, right? If we were down to just one QB, I’d have no issue. This is a complete game changer tight here in the middle of the season. That doesn’t stink to you?

    And why in the whole wide world would Joker need to be winning the fans’ favor? Let’s see…

    -Increases his chances of getting hurt, late in a season
    -Has to fight off the Morgan Newton syndrome of being asked to do too much to quick, if not to carry the team entirely as a frosh

    American Pie is a commentary on the state of American rock ‘n roll music between ’59 and the early 70’s and how it was usurped through the Beetles and Stones. MacLean was lamenting the fact real American rock ‘n roll played at the sock-hops died with Holly and was replaced with a less danceable, esoteric product brought on by the British invasion. He also comments on artists such as Dylan (the Jester) who failed to continue what Elvis (King looking down) and others had started and instead moved it towards folk with its unflinching social commentary (i.e., music with a message).

    The brain doesn’t work like that. It’s not one side then the other. It becomes very complicated when twins may be sharing more organs. Some split where normally there is a dominant that has most control, but the other mind may be able to have some neurological control of certain organs or systems. There is no set way for Siamese twins to function. Most of the time though they feel as if they are one because they are so much of the same. And yes they could suspend both if one smoked pot because they would be sharing kidneys and blood. There aren’t two bodies crammed into one, they share most of their organs- that’s why they are Siamese twins.

    #163 What you fail to understand is that I really wanted Joker to succeed. I gave up on him after the bowl game where Pittsburg didn’t even have a coach and came out and kicked our butts. He told us before the bowl how much Newton had improved after an extra month of practice and then again how much he had improved over the summer. Either Joker was lying or doesn’t know what he’s looking at.

    Not saying it’s going to happen, but if UK manages to win the majority of these final games then the fans will return and Joker’s job will be saved. Things can change pretty quickly in this environment, but it will take winning a few games with this group of Freshmen and Sophomore’s to make that happen.

    Why would the twins pick Maryland? The same reason Shabazz picked UCLA…. well kind of.

    Some think that if the Twins go to Maryland (the UA flagship school) that after they go pro, they’ll become “the face of Under Armour.”

    The other connections are that family (including grandparents) live in Baltimore, and Shaquille Cleare (incoming freshman center at Maryland) played with the twins in Houston, and one of the Maryland assistant coaches is basically like an uncle to them. Mark Turgeon, the Terps coach, started recruiting them while he was still at Texas A&M and continued to do so when he was hired at Maryland.

    The model, the only of its kind to use more than one state-level economic indicator, has correctly predicted the winner of every presidential election since 1980.

    It predicts Romney winning the electoral college by a 320-218 margin and winning 52.9 percent of the popular vote when only the two major parties’ candidates are considered, the Associated Press reported Thursday.
