Tuesday Night Notes for the UK Fans of the Day

FullSizeRender 11

It’s been a pretty busy Tuesday night in the world of UK Athletics.  It’s even busier when your car decides to die.  My sweet red Ford Escort, appropriately named Katina, may never purr again.  Before I figure out what’s next, here’s what’s now (h/t SVP).

Derek Willis Throws a First Pitch

Unfortunately, there is not better video evidence to share, but I think it’s safe to say it went right down the middle.

A Jarren Williams Update

It appears that Florida’s chances are dwindling.

While UK’s are rising (at least I think that’s what this Tweet means).

Before Williams’ Tweet, he talked with SEC Country, leading the Alabama writer to believe what we’ve been hearing: the odds for a recommitment to Kentucky are high.

C.J. Johnson’s Looking for a New Job

The former Kentucky defensive lineman and KSR Football Pregame Show Co-host is looking for a new home in the NFL.  Earlier today he was waived by the Kansas City Chiefs after a half-season with the franchise.

Little League World Series Champs 15 Years Later

I was waiting for somebody to do a good story on this group, and my friend John Boel nailed it.  A member of the Valley Sports 10-year old team back in 2002, my experience with the team was much different than most.  There were moments of respect and endearment, to times when I had to prevent myself from swinging on one in middle school, to pure happiness when I heard one player’s name called at a Lexington Legends game.  Watch how it all unfolded through an unbiased lens.

How Does Stoops Stack Up vs. the Power Five?

CBS’ five college football writers ranked all 65 teams in the power five conferences, and you might be surprised where Mark Stoops stands.  He is near the bottom at No. 56, the same position he was in a year ago.

Stoops has now finished four seasons at Kentucky, and is yet to take a step backward in any of them. Maybe if he takes another step forward in 2017 we’ll move him up in the rankings, too.

R.I.P. Big Black

Christopher Boykin, better known as ‘Big Black’ from the MTV reality show Rob and Big, passed away today according to TMZ.  He was just 45 years old.  He was entertaining on television, but he holds a special place in KSR lore for his rivalry with Drew Franklin.  The Louisville fan talked a lot of trash, prompting the two to plan a duel at the Final Four, but unfortunately it never came to fruition.

      Yeah, those aren’t needle scars. She is far too healthy.

    What most people don’t know is that team shouldn’t have even been there. They beat Ohio (my team) 2-1 in the semifinals on a terrible call at first. Wish I could post video to prove it, still pisses me off.

      Sorry, but i’m sure you watched them after that game. They did dominate. And seeing this story, i can’t help but think that umpire saved u a life of screwing up.

    Stoops should be ranked in the 30s not the 50s. That’s a joke. To have him behind Mason and Brohm is simply wrong. UK will be a top 25 team next year.
