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

Drew Barker teases us with a tweet

Teasing fans on Twitter is the new craze these days for high school recruits. We’ve seen it in both football and basketball from several elite prospects. “Shock the world” and “Big announcement tomorrow” are the new thing, and we continue to buy into it time and time again, and it rarely amounts to anything. It’s sad, but we let 18-year-old kids drag us all along for a ride in 140 characters or less. We’re all guilty. So let’s go for another ride today, with Drew Barker driving the excitement bus.

I assume this tweet is about Matt Elam’s decision, which won’t come as a huge surprise if he commits to Kentucky at this point. Or maybe it’s about Beyonce’s response to Miley Cyrus. Or the Bengals game selling out. I don’t know. But there it is.

Big news on the horizon that may or may not affect your happiness.

    Miley Cyrus will be the new Female Face of UK Athletics. Someone find her a hockey shirt.

      On second thought, no need for a shirt, skirt or jersey. Just paint UK on her and turn her loose on a wrecking ball.

    Doesn’t anyone else think it’s weird that the UK Hoops team is playing an SEC game right now, and there’s nothing about it on KSR?

      I was surprised on that too. Been listening to it on ukathletics.com. Currently up 72-55 with 6 min left.

      Guess I didn’t really mean a live blog. Just kinda wanted updates somewhere from Wilder or Hayley.

    “Big news on the horizon.” is a neutral comment. The big news could be good or bad.



  6. Deleted post?

    Did anyone see that post by tomlin that was origninally in this spot about 30min ago? something about why chane was kicked off the team. Weird that i have never seen an entire post deleted before

    Not sure why Barker always has to feel the need to ruin someone else’s moment.

      “Trollsome” Prison Blues. Please don’t pretend to be a UK fan.

    Isn’t team policy that once you become part of the UK football team, you are not supposed to do ridiculous tweets. Guess Barker gets special treatment and the others on the team follow team rules. Makes no sense to me.

      Yep, saying big news on the horizon is a ridiculous tweet. Probably the definition of ridiculous tweet. Give me a break

    Where is Elam a 5* recruit? I looked on rivals, 247, and espn and he doesn’t crack the top 150 in any of them. He is a 4* in two and a 3* on rivals. I want him as bad as the next UK fan to commit, but you all are overhyping him way too much. Did ksr do their own rankings or something?



    • Plainclothes Man

      You obviously didn’t look at 247’s rankings because he’s #10 in the nation on there. You can’t do a little research before you start spouting off all the criticism?



    • Plenty
      10:03 pm January 2, 2014 Permalink

      Actually, he is number 166 on there. Number 16 defensive tackle. Number 2 recruit behind barker in the state. I looked it up twice. Did the research, so since you are so much better at it, provide a link. Myles Garrett is number 10 on there.

      By your logic, every other player that Alabama has heavily recruited is also over-hyped?



    • Plenty
      10:20 pm January 2, 2014 Permalink

      I’m just saying he is not a 5* like everyone claims he is. Alabama has a ton of 5* on their list and they are going to be #1 as usual. I think they are headed in the right direction, but some of my fellow UK fans don’t think logical when it comes to our sports. There are two different rankings on 247. There is no way he is below 150 in all other rankings and #9 in 247. They have him at 166 in composite rankings.

    Anyone really think Barker is as good as they won’t everyone to believe. Not the people I’ve talked to and is not in top 25 in last few years compared to Ky high school qbs

    I still don’t get if you’re that good, how come you’re 2nd team all state to a jr?

    Barker knows. He is bursting and wants to let #BBN know without betraying confidentiality….
