Want to preface this with the obvious clarification that Hamidou is a great get for UK regardless of whether or not he plays this season. While the stated plan for him is to keep him on the sideline, and the benefit of added practice will only help him more in the coming years, Mike Decourcy isn’t…

Today would have been David Bowie’s 70th birthday. I love David Bowie. You probably love David Bowie, too. To honor the late Mr. Stardust, it’s only fitting that we compile a list of one of a generation’s brightest star’s songs, and relate them to what we know and love: Kentucky basketball. “Space Oddity”– Malik Monk…

The class of 2016 haul that UK brought in was, per usual, a great one. And we’ve definitely seen it bear fruit–whether that was Malik’s 47 on UNC, De’Aaron’s performance last night, Bam’s man-eating dunks, or Wenyen’s inexplicably long reach. But one of that class’s gems has yet to shine for the Cats: Sacha Killeya-Jones.…

While it’s certainly a good bit until these players become eligible to don the Blue and White, a pair of Kentucky youngsters–and one from D.C. with an offer from UK–made MaxPreps.com’s end of year Freshman All-American team. These kids may not have been around for the ’90s, but they can ball. OL Dane Jackson– Berea, Madison…

Waking up from a tough (not bad) loss

Losing is never easy. But if it’s any consolation, imagine how this loss would have felt two years ago. We’d be a little frustrated, but still pretty darn excited–the fact that now we’re just flat-out PO’d means something. It means that this program is at a higher level than it was before. That may sound…

Football won its biggest game in a long, long time yesterday. And the NBA Cats have roared off to probably their best start in a… Well, probably ever. So naturally, that leads to some thought about the intersection between football and basketball (Did you know that Willie Cauley-Stein played wide receiver in high school?). I…

Hot off the griddle this morning, CampusInsiders has got you covered with the earliest updated SEC bowl projections–not least of which includes Kentucky. They’ve pegged the Cats to play Tom Herman’s 7-2 Houston Cougars, who I honestly want no part of: “Birmingham Bowl Date: Dec. 29 Location: Birmingham, Alabama Tie-ins: AAC/SEC Birmingham Bowl Projection: Houston (AAC) vs.…

Jon Solomon over for that little ol’ company called CBS thinks Kentucky has a legit shot at winning the SEC East. I know, I know–the last eleventy billion times it seemed like we’d come close ended modestly–but his case… Well, the logic isn’t bad: “5. Kentucky could win the SEC East. Every year, the SEC East seems…

Saying goodbye to UK football for a week was difficult. It’s easy to forget that there are important things in the athletic world beyond Kentucky sports–at least for me during UK football/basketball seasons, that’s a problem. This week, even though we had plenty of preseason basketball tidbits to digest, I took the time to kick back…

  Well, we did it. After beating Vanderbilt, Kentucky will head into its bye week with high hopes and intact bowl dreams. This was an ugly game–I mean, check out the box score. I’m not sure that I’d have believed someone if they came up to me before that game and said “We’re gonna win,…
