Sunday’s Morning Wakeup

Championship Saturday satisfies

With no dog in the fight, all we can do at this point is sit back and watch some damn good football. Clemson remained the only undefeated team going into the postseason with a win over UNC in the ACC title game, 45-37. Deshaun Watson racked up 420 total yards and added 5 touchdowns to lead the Tigers to a win, and the assured top-seed in the football playoff.

Michigan State continued their late-game heroics pulling off the upset over previously unbeaten #4 Iowa in the Big Ten Championship game. Iowa blew their chance at making the playoffs in the final week of the season, and traded Michigan St. their playoff spot in exchange for Hawkeye heartbreak. We understand, Iowa.

Alabama got ahold of Florida in the SEC championship defeating the Gators 29-15 in a game that really wasn’t all that close. Florida couldn’t move the ball on offense like we saw the past few weeks, and Alabama rolled behind Heisman hopeful Derrick Henry’s 189 yards, and 1 touchdown performance. Alabama beat down their competition and claimed their spot in the football playoffs for the 2nd consecutive year.

Why you gotta be so rude?


Damien Harris wanted to throw some shade at pesky Cats fans bugging him about his decision to leave the state. I guess he was feeling hot because he blocked a punt, and I wish nothing but the best for this young man, but c’mon man. Keepin’ it classy.

Cal spent his Saturday watching future star Wenyen Gabriel

Cal flew to watch commit Wenyen Gabriel at the Prep Classic in Rhode Island on a Saturday off of college basketball. Gabriel is one of the fastest rising recruits in the class of 2016, and he didn’t disappoint in front of the Silver Fox, either. He had 17 points, 14 rebounds, and 9 blocks (per his coach), that’s a pretty standout day for the big man.

There was heavy action at the Marshall County Hoopfest yesterday and some pretty big names went at it. UK class of 2017 targets John Petty and Jarred Vanderbilt each had great days scoring 17 and 23 respectively. Big names like Thon Maker, Josh Jackson, Trevon Duval, and Miles Bridges were among the guys out there yesterday with a host of national recruiting analysts taking in the sights. Shoutout to third-ranked Paul Laurence Dunbar’s Taveion Hollingsworth for getting his first scholarship offer from EKU about 5 hours after his huge 33-point game and win over Alabama 3A powerhouse Madison Academy at Hoopfest last night. It didn’t hurt that he mentioned UK was his dream school, as the home state kid would love nothing more than to play for the Cats.

    Is this the second straight post that you all have spelled Wenyen wrong? I guess this will be the new “Terrance” Jones

    Damien Harris made the correct decision. He will be a bad boy down there next year.

    -Matt, et al, there’s a lesson in this Damien Harris action that fans have known for years: When the kid makes a different choice than our school, you wish them well,…. and then never EVER mention them again. Not even to post something like this.

    As has commonly been said, “You’re dead to us, now.”

      Exactly. No one can blame him for picking ‘Bama. Wish him luck, then never even acknowledge he exists. Now, as for Harris, he needs to learn to ignore fans.

    I seen a lot of hate spewed toward him when he made his decision, but I also seen alot of well wishes. I don’t mind what Harris did, just a tweet. Can’t blame him for going to Bama either.

    Harris is making Alabama Football look foolish. Harris better hope Saban does not catch wind of this.

    Harris is a punk. Don’t care. Great game by Towns, and Rondo just missed having ANOTHER 20 assist game. Incredible.
