News from around the Big Blue Internet. Today is the day the Harrison's decide where they will go to school, most likely only for one year. More.
If you just crawled out from under a Big Blue rock, or happened to be one of those people born yesterday, you may not have heard that Andrew and Aaron Harrison, two of the crème de la crème of the 2013 high school recruiting class, will choose between the Maryland Terrapins and Kentucky Wildcats today.
Tweet of the Morning:
Saw the Harrison twins at a HS all-star game at the Final Four in New Orleans. One word: RELENTLESS!— Fran Fraschilla (@franfraschilla) October 4, 2012
Now you know why this is such a big deal.
I find this troubling. At best, it looks like very bad PR for the Volunteers.
This is awesome. Congratulations, ladies. Very impressive indeed.
[Pay site] - I consider Mayes the X-factor this year for Kentucky.
If so, an entire state will boycott the sale of Under Armour, but Big Blue Nation will be okay. It’ll just take us a month or two to get over it.
Nobody asked my opinion, but if they did, it would by "Less flash, more fundamentals, please."
“Taking over for Max is nearly impossible,” wide receiver King said, “so I’m not really trying to compare them at all. I just want them to go in there and do their best.”
I think that's right. UK fans should keep this in mind.
[Pay site] - Wild Weasel had this yesterday. Good news for football, this guy looks talented, and he's a "big ugly." You can't have too many of those.
I don't cheer for many Hoosiers, but I'm cheering for Creek. He's had an injury-riddled career that nobody deserves. I wish him the best, and a good season.
Everybody wants to play, but this is Kentucky. You know the drill.
Good rundown of the back-and-forth going on in cyberspace.
Wouldn't it be a kick in the head to both Maryland and UK if Aaron and Andrew Harrison went to SMU? Larry Brown strikes again ...
Les and I think a lot alike.
Are there any facilities at Kentucky not awaiting overhaul? Oh, that's right - the football facilities.
Takin’ care of business: The #20 ranked Mississippi State wants to send a message this weekend to the effect of “Don’t forget about us!” as they match up against Kentucky. We certainly will until MSU beats a worthy opponent. In a weird way, if MSU takes care of business and smacks around the Wildcats, some will compare last week’s South Carolina game and say the Bulldogs are better than South Carolina, and we will collectively agree because we have no idea how good Mississippi State really is. Kentucky has to have something good go their way this season, right?
One would think. Read the whole thing.
More on Bodkin.
Nice work by Stuart Hammer.
UK leads the all-time series over MSU by a slim 21-18 margin, although the Bulldogs have closed the gap with three consecutive wins.
Wow. We lead against a team other than Vandy?
