UK Selfie Fan of the Day Wants Some Quick Notes


I am watching the Draft and want to get back to it, so these will be short…in the meantime, stare at the amazing selfie above, complete with UK players making excellent faces and enjoy:

— The UK schedule next year is going to be one of the best in the last 20 years here. Obviously the names are big, but the actual talent of the teams is just as big. We are looking at potentially four games against preseason Top 12 teams (Kansas, UNC, Louisville and Texas), the traditional power of UCLA, a Providence team that went to the Tournament and probably at least one other marquee game in the “exempt” tournament (likely a team such as UMASS or the like). A schedule like that is as good as we have seen and Calipari has the horses to handle it.

— I do think there is some legitimate interest from Kentucky for Eron Harris. Harris is the type of player that you rarely see as a transfer…a kid who has already excelled at a BCS school and still wants to transfer and sit out a year. You sometimes see mid-major guys transfer in those circumstances or top-level guys who have not hit the level they want…but a 17 points per game scorer from a school like West Virginia? Rare indeed. Kentucky thought a few months ago that they would get Luke Kennard and he and Matthews would be the 2/3s of the 2015 class. While the 2015 class is deep with big men, it isnt loaded at the guard position (at least for UK targets) and losing Kennard probably made Calipari think this was a viable option. This will be worth following as Harris is a major talent that virtually no one saw potentially being a Cat and in the next week or so, we will find out of if that is a long term option.

— Folks, the UK football recruiting is beyond amazing. Getting Jordan Jones today and potentially CJ Conrad tomorrow has to be beyond this staff’s wildest dreams. Jones picked Kentucky over offers from Oklahoma, Miami and Nebraska…read that sentence again…it is real. And Conrad is a 4 star Tight End that Vince Marrow has coveted since arriving in Lexington. I can’t get over how this group recruits and if they can keep the momentum up, the third recruiting class will be even better than the first two. Steps on the field have to be taken in year two and year three is a big judgment period. However in recruiting, no one could have seen this coming when Stoops was hired. He continues to amaze.

As of this moment, Johnny Manziel hasn’t been drafted…I am hoping for Dallas because it will be the most awesome assortment of fun in the NFL in years…I might even buy a Cowboys jersey. We shall see. Until then, Mike Evans got drafted and a nose pick. Have a big Thursday night folks and thanks to all the women who made the KSR Radio “Ladies Day” show today a success

    And speaking of the NFL Draft, the comments section of Card Chronicle is in full meltdown mode! 🙂 Apparently they were totally convinced that Teddy Bridgewater was going to be the #1 pick. LOL!!!

      NFL – Johnny Football to Cleveland on the 22nd pick, sorry Teddy, I do hope you go in the first round. The only other quarterback taken so far is Blake Borties from C FL.

    Listening to Cinc radio for the Bengals outlook on the draft. Announcers made the point that some Bama payers come into the league almost worn down after playing for Saban. NFL junkies, enlighten me, any truth to that? If Saban’s got that reputation, could influence future recruit’s decision.
