Back to normal with your Saturday Morning Wakeup

Good morning, friends. Happy weekend to you. You guys may have a lot of glamorous plans today and tomorrow, but not me. After a very busy month, I’m looking forward to settling back into my weekend routine of Crossfit, Trader Joe’s, movie, Five Points Pizza, beer, nap, and grilling. Also yardwork because ours looks terrible.

In between all of that, there’s a lot going on this weekend. Come along and let me show you…

UK commits Dakota Holtzclaw, Kash Daniel, Benny Snell, Landon Young, and Gunnar Hoak

Yahtzee watch continues

UK’s Friday Night Blue Lights camp wrapped up yesterday with one commitment: Minnesota transfer LB De’Niro Laster. JuCo OL Tate Leavitt, DT Kobe Smith, and DT Walvenski Aime are some of the major targets still on commitment watch, along with LB Jamar “Boogie” Watson, who visits today. All indications are we could hear a few more Yahtzees before the weekend’s over, so stay tuned.

More basketball recruiting!

The second July evaluation period rolls on, with two big events wrapping up:

Under Armour Finals, Atlanta
Prospects: Josh Jackson, Markelle Fultz and Sacha Killeya-Jones

Nike Global Challenge, Chicago
Prospects: Malik Monk, Miles Bridges and Marques Bolden

Prediction: more recruiting writers will have more quotes from each player about how much Calipari wants them.

Jamal Murray finds out if he’s on the Canadian National Team

At some point today, Jamal Murray will find out if he made the twelve-man roster for the Canadian National Team, which will play in the Pan Am Games, which begin next week in Toronto. NBA players Anthony Bennett, Andrew Nicholson, and Baylor University alum Brady Heslip are among those who tried out, and Murray’s chances of making the roster are pretty high. If he does, he and the rest of Team Canada will meet a familiar foe on Tuesday: the Dominican Republic National Team, coached by Orlando Antigua. The game will be streamed on at 6 p.m. Tuesday night.

Matt, Drew, and Tomlin cover the Phoenix Wildcats Suns

After watching Willie Cauley-Stein, DeAndre Liggins, Julius Randle, Karl Towns, and Trey Lyles play in the consolation rounds of the Summer League yesterday, Matt, Drew, and Tomlin will turn their sights on the Phoenix Suns, who play the Chicago Bulls in the quarterfinals at 3 p.m. PT.

Devin Booker, Archie Goodwin, and Jorts are all on the Suns, so get ready for more coverage from Vegas. Coverage meaning game updates, Periscopes, and snaps, probably more of latter since it’s Vegas and not as many Cats advanced as we’d hoped. Did I mention it’s Vegas?

If things go well, I see “Trainwreck”

I’m automatically suspicious of any movie that guest stars LeBron James, but I love Amy Schumer and Bill Hader so much I’ll give “Trainwreck” a chance. Schumer’s rise has been fun to follow the past several months because she’s not your typical female lead, an anomaly the public seems to be embracing more and more. Plus, she’s downright hilarious. I love her show and her stand-up and can’t wait to see what she does with a major role.

This boy will still probably refuse to wear a St. Louis Cardinals jersey because…

Someone sent me this video yesterday of a little boy refusing to put on a St. Louis Cardinals jersey because he was afraid someone might think he’s a Louisville fan. The story gets even better when you find out the boy is the cousin of Corey Littrell, a former UK pitcher who plays in the Cardinals organization. This kid wins the day, as far as I’m concerned.

    Very interesting recruiting article on Straighthoops today. Calling Malik Monk for Arkansas, but giving UK a better shot than most people think for guys like Thon Maker, Rawle Alkins, and calling Bridges and Kobi Simmons to UK as well. Good read.

    Love that kids dislike for UL and Cards. I’m like him, I hate the color red and anything related to UL. Can’t even stand to see a cardinal in my backyard.

    We need to get Sacha Killeya-Jones for the simple reason that that could be the most awesome name ever to see on the back of a UK jersey.

    Look at Holtzclaw he is listed at 6′.7 215lbs looks like he is about 6′.8 235lbs and he is listed as a wide out. Man we are getting some good looking pass catchers!

    Hoping for me yahtzees!! But if you think Amy Schumer is funny you really have no sense of humor she’s awful, nothing that comes out of her mouth is funny

    i guess the kid thought he would burst into flames if he wore that jersey. I get the same feeling.

    now there’s a kid who knows how to consider consequences before doing something.

      Not only that… It’s pretty sad that these inbred people raise kids to hate others they don’t even know.

      Says the guy referring to a rival SPORTS TEAM’S fans as inbreds.

      Stay classy, Louisville. Fo real.

    The ignorant inbred stereotype is something that has been used against people from Kentucky for years. Why Louisville fans use it is beyond me. It reminds me of that old Dave Chappelle skit where he’s playing a black white-supremacist.

    I like the kid refusing to wear the St. Louis jersey, however it was obviously scripted. But the kid did a great job of acting and getting a point across.

    “Train up a child in the way he should go…” Proverbs 22:6

    I feel the same way kid! As a UK alum and Reds fan I hate all things Cardinals! I might as well go ahead and start disliking Arizona, Ball State, Colerain HS, and Sts Peter and Paul Elementary School!!
