University of Kentucky Basketball, Football, and Recruiting news brought to you in the most ridiculous manner possible.

2017 WR/CB Russ Yeast decommits

Some unfortunate news from the football recruiting world: 2017 wide receiver/cornerback Russ Yeast has decommitted. The son of UK legend Craig Yeast announced the news on Twitter a few minutes ago:

Yeast committed to Kentucky back on July 28, 2015. He’s considered the 37th best cornerback in the 2017 class by 247 Sports Composite. There’s a long way until Signing Day, but this is discouraging to say the least.

Also, why did Mac Jones feel the need to retweet Yeast’s decommitment?

And Michael Warren and James Hudson’s decommitments…

Come on, Mac. No need to be petty.

      Seriously, your coach is the classless punk. He called out a 17 year old kid who did nothing wrong. Mac has every right to hold a bit of a grudge against UK based on Hinshaw’s childish actions.

      Protecting his program??? He hurt his program by making the coaches out to be thin skinned and two faced. Recruits will remember. This incident should show you that. These kids all know each other, and they are going to spread the word about UK based on Hinshaw’s rash, childish behavior.

      As a Louisville fan, why would you pick the name “Blueblueblueblue”?



    • Blueblueblueblue
      8:17 pm June 16, 2016 Permalink

      Two reasons: Kind of mocking the whole “Big Blue” thing and you all immediately label anything from UofL fans as “trolling” even if it’s not, so it’s easier to actually engage in conversation without a baiting name.

      Actually, I just don’t see Mac Jones playing in the SEC. I remember Tim Tebow, a big strong quarterback taking the hit from U.K.’s Taylor Wyndham, even though our defensive line was no match for Florida’s offensive line.
      I don’t remember how long Tebow was out; but, I don’t see Jones being able to take a hit like that and playing again.



    • ky1988

      Plenty of smaller QB’s play in the SEC. By the time this kid’s a junior he’ll weight 200+ lbs. Heck the guy before Tebow, Leak, played at 200ish lbs.



    • Blueblueblueblue

    • scorpiocard

      They think he can’t play because they are goofy enough to think all QBs in the sec have to deal with a pathetic OL like yew kay’s. News flash, Bama has an OL that can protect him.



    • runningunnin.454
      8:17 pm June 16, 2016 Permalink

      Like the way Florida’s superior OL protected Tebow in 2009?
      By the way, if you had debated in college, you would know calling people “goofy” won’t win the debate. In fact, it costs you points; and, it indicative of a small, weak mind.



    • Blueblueblueblue
      8:19 pm June 16, 2016 Permalink

      Key point is that Alabama doesn’t need a savior at QB the same way that UK does. They can win with a solid guy that won’t turn it over. For UK to win, they are going to need a big time QB.



    • UK Big Board Update

      You have a freshmen and a guy who so far has shown himself to be immature and not particularly adept at playing the position. I’ll hold off on Hoak as I haven’t seen him play. Barker will never be a winning QB. He just flat out doesn’t have it.

Charlie Strong is also a devoted family man with two daughters in their final years of high school. He’s not going to move them for ANY job. He may leave after they graduate. Sure its possible. Before they do? No way.

I’m curious as to whether they join conversations on UL fan sites. And if they do, I wonder if they bait the fans there. I have no desire to sign on and post at a UL fan site. Maybe that’s why I don’t understand the mentality.

    Recruiting Football isn’t about 1 or 2 players. It’s 4 years of ‘recruiting classes’ that makes a team.

    Let these people go find the 5th string somewhere else.

    We’re looking for people who want to play.



    • Blueblueblueblue
      7:15 pm June 16, 2016 Permalink

      “5th string” …. these guys are willing to go compete at schools that excel at football. As opposed to UK’s big time recruits who want to go somewhere they can be the big fish in a small pond and not have to compete.



    • GroundControlToNumber9
      7:22 pm June 16, 2016 Permalink

      Blueblueblueblue – That’s your narrative… and the same story these kids have been fed by other schools swimming in talent.

      Do you think Alabama gives a shit about their 3rd through 5th string players every year that graduate that could have actually had playing time elsewhere?

      Do you think the top schools give a damn about the kids that never got a chance to be seen by NFL scouts to further their ‘real dream’ someday?

      You go sell your soul to Alabama… as they over-recruit positions and talent sits on the bench. Do you think they give a crap?



    • Blueblueblueblue
      7:42 pm June 16, 2016 Permalink

      Alabama does not recruit kids they don’t think could play for them; that serves no purpose. Does every recruit pan out, nope, but do the best recruits / players have the confidence in themselves and the work ethic to play at the best schools, yes. If you are a great player, you don’t worry about the depth chart. Elam is a perfect example of the type of player that turns down big time football schools to go to UK – lazy, entitled, and unwilling to compete.



    • scorpiocard

Your baseball team is the only one in the SEC to never make a Super Regional (we go every year now) and your women’s basketball team has never been to a Final Four in history. Ours has played in the NC game twice. Your soccer program is a joke. Ours is a top flight program that has played in the NC game. In popular sports your program is a joke outside of baskeetbawl!

      scorpiocard – You said, “Does every recruit pan out, nope, but do the best recruits / players have the confidence in themselves and the work ethic to play at the best schools, yes.”

      This again is the story these coaches tell kids and their parents.

      The reality is at Alabama you could have 4 QB’s that are all great. Only 1 plays. Regardless of how much confidence and work ethic is put in. Same with all positions.

      Alabama overrecruits all positions… then the only way the kid who isn’t the coaches favorite (and if you played football you’d know that’s what it’s all about) gets on the field is through injury.

      If you think it happens any other way then you simply have no experience in the world ad are talking out of your ass.

      At Kentucky you get the same TV exposure + now the same elite facilities + coaches who have put elite talent in the NFL = program where you can go in the draft #1 (Tim Couch). But if your elite talent there’s no chance you get overlooked and you will play regardless of if your the coaches favorite or not.

      This KY program is on the right track and losing kids who don’t care about ‘their word’ is usually a blessing in disguise.

      With UL, if you guys lose your 1st string QB and because he runs it’s much more likely), you’re just another team in the top 40.



    • Blueblueblueblue
      1:11 am June 17, 2016 Permalink

      It must be rough to lose over and over again to “just another team in the top 40”.

      Bottom line: players get this: if you are good enough you will play. Period. Some guys know they aren’t (Elam). Some guys believe they are. Give me the guys who believe in themselves.

    Sorry I’m going to call it like I see it. The UK fanbase has long considered Craig Yeast as a hero of this program. At the time we saw Yeast and Couch as the saviours of our football program. It didn’t turn out as we expected it to back1997 but still we were in awe of Craig and idolized him over the years. So much that I wouldn’t be surprised if UK football and the fans are a big part of Craig’s successes in life so for his son to basically use this program and fans as a stepping stone to better offers is just down right lowdown and dirty. He purposely used his UK commitment to attract offers from other schools. Call them kids if you want but 18 is not like it was 20 years ago. These ‘kids” know what they’re doing. Same for that skinny punk Mac Jones, both of them purposely set out from the beginning to deal the UK football a knockout blow I don’t feel tjey did it alone. Then who helped them conspire this? I really dont know but I do know that the Judas down in Alabama delivered a pretty fair blow to the Vols also. He’s only interested in himself and doesn’t care who he steps on. I pray to God that somehow in the near future our team turns into a winner and plants these turncoats into the turf. Same goes for that so called adult who is the world’s biggest baby in the world Kiffin

    Stoops either wins this year or these recruiting woes are going to get way worse. Selling hope and immediate playing time stops working after a few years; at some point you have to prove it on the field or recruits stop listening, and we’re seeing that now.



  7. scorpiocard
    7:56 pm June 16, 2016 Permalink

    Obviously top recruits have caught on to what a fraud Stoops is. They see legitimate talent dropping off of the radar screen. Practically NO NFL PROSPECTS. Take one look at Fatt Elam and you can see what a joke Stoops is at developing talent. Meanwhile, NFL.com tabs Bobby Petrino as one of the top coaches in the country at developing talent, and.picks U of L as one of 5 schools to dominate the next NFL draft. When it come to the #1 college sport in the nation you just need to know your place big bro. #3 in Kentucky basically tied with EKU.

    – Mac Jones is a punk and I hate to wish ill will on a kid but if anyone deserves it… it is him.
    – Hopefully this is the last year for Stoops… although I think it might be 2 more seasons before they realize how much of a bust he is.

    Lol the trolls are dominating the ksr boards. Obsessed much? No need to answer that, it’s obvious. All that bragging and yet your football team has never even sniffed a football championship. Sugar bowl is best you got, which is one bragging about making the Sweet 16. Is it better than UK… Yep… But doesn’t mean much when you can’t do any better than a consolation bowl. You didn’t even win the crappy big East outright the year you went to the sugar bowl, you were allowed to go because you could sell more tickets. So enjoy that your mediocrity is better than UK football. But it’s still mediocrity at best .

      And yes, you are better NOW, but that hasn’t always been the case. Our records over history are about the same, and we’ve played in the SEC, whereas you’ve played in about 5 now-defunct leagues.

      Oh, and the ACC is a basketball conference.

      I’m always amazed by seeing just how many UL fans have switched their allegiance from basketball to football ever since they’ve been owned by UK and Cal. 😂😂😂

      It’s a football school now. Lol. In 2012, you were a steeplechase school. #LilBro

      The ACC has multiple good footballs schools. It isn’t as good as the SEC but UK has nothing to do with that. Taking pride in your conference when you are UK is like being proud of your D1 brother when you are a backup on your high school team.

      The ACC is great at basketball, but Clemson and Florida St. would tell you they are pretty good at football too.

      Have fun living in the past. UofL football just keeps getting better. Getting harder an harder to see UK from where we are.

      Remember, just before your little streak, UK had a little streak on you.

      Did you happen to go to the Papa Johns stadium opener? I was there. Was a fun game. Beautiful way to christen the place.

      That must explain why you’ve been on this site all day. Let me offer some perspective: when we do well in basketball, or something bad happens to UL, I don’t go run to their site to tell them about it.

      Newsflash: every Power 5 conference has “a few good football schools”. You’re calling ME delusional?

      Yes, Brooks did a great job at UK. He was a much better coach than Stoops. The trick with Brooks is he was old and not looking for the next job. Hard to find that type of guy again.

      Again, have fun in the past. I imagine that win over LSU is fun to reminisce on.

      Conferences don’t matter to me. I imagine they do to you because they make you feel better about your team’s terrible football performance. UofL’s football record stands on its own – without pointing at the accomplishments of better programs.



    • Blueblueblueblue
      1:15 am June 17, 2016 Permalink

      But then again, that’s because we spent the better part of the 2000’s in Conference USA, the Big East and AAC. Its easier to acquire a decent record and get to go to bowls in those leagues.

    A high school football recruit’s “commitment” equals “I’ll think about it unless something else better comes along”. Everybody, including these kids, needs to look up the definition of commitment and see what it really means. Same on the other side. When schools offer scholarships they are wrong to pull the offer at the last minute when somebody else better comes along. I think the whole process stinks.

      You must be a pretty bad person. The kid de-commited and an adult got angry about it. The adult (Hinshaw) is the one who should be mocked. Why wouldn’t the kid hold a grudge when a person he trusted and likely looked up to turned on him so fast.

    • Blueblueblueblue

      Has a UofL coach ever tweeted about a recruit decommiting? I don’t think so. Hinshaw’s actions indicate a lack of impulse control and maturity. They are likely to negatively affect recruiting.

    Football season can’t get here soon enough. UK is going bowling, and will likely end up with 7 wins. But for now, we are losing commits fast, although Yeast is the last one I thought we’d lose. There is just too much negativity around the program for whatever reason. All of that will change when we are battling it out for 2nd or 3rd place in the SEC east. This is the season it turns.



    • Blueblueblueblue
      1:06 am June 17, 2016 Permalink

      Or you get beat by Southern Miss in the opener, more recruits decommit, you beat Vandy and no other SEC teams, and get beat by UofL. Always an option.



    • UK Big Board Update

    I know Mac Jones is a teenager, but he’s really turned out to be a tool. Seems his personality fits with Kiffin and Saban. He leads the UK staff on, now he’s retweeting this stuff. Kid seriously needs to grow up. Also, what the hell is going on? The staff has done a good job at keeping recruiting classes together, this one is falling apart.



    • Blueblueblueblue
      1:22 am June 17, 2016 Permalink

      You lost too many games while over promising. This isn’t hard to figure out. Without a class based on 4/5 star bleed blue KY kids (which is unusual) this program is going to struggle to recruit until the on field results improve (unlikely).
