Good Morning, Big Blue Nation!

Well, that simply didn’t go well last night. Kentucky was having success moving the ball early against #1 Alabama, but only put three points on the board in two scoring opportunities to begin the game. The Crimson Tide held on to a 7-3 lead after the first quarter and things got very, very ugly from that point on. As you all probably know by now, ‘Bama ended up winning 63-3. Below are some links if you feel like punishing yourself by reliving that beat down, but the rest of us are going to simply move on and spread some positivity on this gloomy, rainy Sunday.

The Bad and Not-So-Bad

Alright, all positivity from here on out!

Nerlens Noel Signs with the Knicks

Former Kentucky assistant coach Kenny Payne has wasted no time putting his stamp on the Knicks since arriving just a few months ago. Thursday evening the New York Knicks surprised just about everyone by selecting Immanuel Quickley in the first round. Then, yesterday, Nerlens landed a one-year deal in the Big Apple.

Playing for the Oklahoma City Thunder last season, Noel averaged 7.4 points, 4.9 rebounds, and 1.5 blocks per game in less than 20 minutes per contest. He will join fellow Wildcats Julius Randle and Kevin Knox, along with Quickley, on the Knicks 2020-2021 roster.

Rajon Rondo Signs with the Hawks

In other BBNBA news, Rajon Rondo landed a two-year, $15 million dollar contract with the Atlanta Hawks. The Hawks will mark the seventh team that Rondo has suited up for in his now 15 season career.

Fresh off his second NBA Championship with the Los Angeles Lakers last season, Rondo averaged 7.1 points and 5.0 assists per game. He will be joining forces with Trae Young on an Atlanta Hawks team that will be looking to make a leap towards competing for an Eastern Conference Playoff spot this season.

    The next time someone complains in the preseason that we’re not getting any respect they should immediately be popped right in the mouth.

      100% agree. Yesterday and the Missouri game debacle are why UK doesn’t get or earn any respect nationally.

    Four Wildcats on the Steelers team and you talk the mediocre Titans and the unbearable Bengals?!? And your site wonders why people gripe about preseason hype? Go Steelers! And, go anyone who beats the Titans and Bungals!

    Yet another complete melt down by Stoops. I’ve had more, than enough of his complete failure of a coach.
    Fire Stoops now and let Marrow finish the season as head coach.

    No way to polish yesterday‘s turd. It was an embarrassment to the program and to our players who participated. But like all Kentucky football teams, they should just take their ass whipping like men and prepare for whatever humiliation is in the immediate future.
