Look, it’s my new BFF! Hello, friends. While you were cussing at the television and pacing around the room yesterday, I was fortunate enough to be at the game. A few rows from the floor, in fact. Since I don’t get to go to many Kentucky games these days (how dare they play all of…

Pink is my favorite crayon Clad in all-pink uniforms for the WBCA Pink Zone game (pink zone? ugh), the UK women’s team survived a sloppy performance to pull out a win vs. LSU, 49-47. Both teams looked bad, committing more turnovers than field goals for most of the game. The score was gridlocked at 47…

In his latest Lexy audio tweet (still not entirely sure what these are), Coach Cal manages to find the silver lining in the Cats’ loss yesterday at Vandy.

For his weekly look at the SEC, Jason King over at Yahoo Sports/Rivals checks in with the Cats, who credits Kentucky’s tough performance against Tennessee to boxing sessions during practice. Instead of shooting free throws and running plays, some of the team’s practice time was spent throwing haymakers into punching bags that were stationed on…

In an interview with ESPN earlier today, our favorite homeboy, Bruce Pearl, said he doesn’t expect any further punishment for his recruiting violations last season. Pearl claims that actions taken by Tennessee and the SEC (a $1.5 million fine, recruiting ban; 8-game suspension) should prove to the NCAA that he takes his mistakes seriously and…

CBSSports.com released their latest bowl projections this morning and my, aren’t they interesting. Even though they have Georgia listed twice for some reason, CBSSports predicts that Tennessee will beat the Cats and steal the final SEC bowl position. Those low down dirty snitches!

Sartorial superstar Chip Cosby has a great article in today’s Herald Leader about the bright future of Kentucky’s defensive line. Although the Cats will lose seniors Ricky Lumpkin, Shane McCord and DeQuin Evans, the stable is stocked with talent, including freshman Donte Rumph, Nermin Delic, and third-year sophomore Mister Cobble. For a much maligned squad,…

Late games are tricky, especially on Fridays. Either you give up and set the TiVo (like that’s an option), stay in and keep yourself busy until tip-off, or you’re like me and you’ll still go out, have a few drinks, and come home, ready to yell at the television. And as we all know, there…

Along with the “Mony Mony” dancing guy and the Cat pyramid, one of the best gameday traditions in Kentucky basketball is the celebrity “Y” at the end of the cheerleaders’ spelling of Kentucky. Usually, the “Y” is whichever famous former player or coach is in attendance (I’m looking at you, Joe B. Hall), but occasionally,…
