The Grammy’s Sunday Morning Links

Good morning Big Blue Nation. I’m sure you all are still basking in the glory of the two Kentucky beat downs this week against Texas A&M and Georgia. If you live in Fayette County, you’re probably holed up at home with your heat on blast cursing the gods for this foul winter, but in the mean time, there’s news to be read. Link me.

-The Courier Journal’s Tim Sullivan pulls the reigns on some fans notions of this being a break out week for the Kentucky Wildcats, reminding us that the Aggies and Bulldogs were picked to finish in the bottom half of the SEC. If UK wants to prove something to people, they have to do it this week on the road.

-A lot has changed in the upper echelon of college basketball in the past weeks, with teams like Ohio State and Wisconsin tumbling from the ranks of the elite. Kentucky has held steady, and improved their stock in Joe Lunardi’s latest edition of bracketology as a two seed…check out the full draw on ESPN.

-An absolute SHOCKER down under. Underdog Stanislas Wawrinka upset top seeded Rafael Nadal in four sets to bring home his first career Grand Slam. Since 2010, he is the first player out of the “Big Four” (Federer, Djokovic, Murray, Nadal) to bring home a major tournament. You go Stan.

-Many complaints about this Kentucky team at the beginning of the season was their lack of unity. Well, now Calipari says that “the team roots for each other” during the games, and Larry Vaught examines what implications this could have for a championship run.

-The Kentucky women’s basketball team is on struggle street right now, having lost three  of their last five games, two of which were in Memorial Coliseum. They attempt to get back on track this afternoon against the Arkansas Razorbacks, and UK Athletics has a full preview for us.

    We pull the reins in…no G.

    A king reigns and we pull the reins in on a horse.

      Was outside Rod Laver last night for the match. It was great to see Stan win.

    Great win for Wawrinka, but he didn’t win a Grand Slam. He won a Grand Slam event, meaning one of the four tourneys you have to win before having a real grand slam.

      That’s just being pedantic. We all know what he meant although maybe “major” would have been a better word choice.

    If you’re a cowboy and you’re dragging a guy behind your horse, I bet it would really make you mad if you looked back and the guy was reading a magazine.

    It’s a shame particularly considering the level of talent but thus far this team has shown zero evidence of being special.

    The names change at the courier-journal but the writers still feel it is their duty to throw a wet blanket on Kentucky fans which is why i quit reading their stuff even before forde left. I have to take your word for it that this sullivan guy thinks it’s necessary to enlighten us stupid UK fans.

    I used to watch the Grammy show, but, cheez-whiz, it’s been 20 years since I recognized any of the music. Also, in the years I watched, there were exactly two performances which seemed outstanding. Marvin Gaye singing “Sexual Healing” and Linda Thompson and Betsy Cook singing “Telling Me Lies”. (Both are on Youtube. Thompson and Cook’s performance is in a group.)

    Nadal was hurt, no way he looses that match if didn’t suffer the back injury.

      Stan dominated him in the first set before he was seriously injured. Nadal was better off getting injured because it ended up making Stan play poorly as well. Keep in mind Wawrinka had already beaten Djokovic who had a win streak in the 20s at the Australian Open.

    There’s no justice if Good Kid M.A.A.D. City doesn’t win album of the year tonight. No other nominee even comes close.
