Kentucky Wildcats: Morning Quickies - Kentucky Football Edition

Kim Klement-US PRESSWIRE - Presswire

Morning news links of interest to Kentucky Wildcats fans. The Blue/White basketball game tickets go on sale soon, plus more from around the Internet.

This morning, Quickies wants to perform a public service announcement, and remind you that the Ryder Cup golf matches start tomorrow.

I'm sorry, I'm just a sucker for the #scumbag hashtag when it gets applied to Louisville.

Now, for your Quickies:

Calipari brings some serious bling when recruiting // The Courier-Journal

"Cal is just, well, Cal," Kyles was quoted as saying. "He’s just got swag. I mean, he had a driver. There wasn’t any presentation — it was just Cal talking off the cuff and chilling out with us."

"Swag" is the new "gravitas."


(6) South Carolina (4-0) at Kentucky (1-3) (ET) // Bradenton Herald

Honestly, if Smith starts, I think UK can put up points on the Gamecocks. I don't think we can stop them, but I do think we can score on them.


Duke becomes next college hoops team to switch to the iPad // CBSSports.com

I snark because I can. In fact, Duke (according to Duke) is the first college basketball program to step into the playbook future (Michigan in fact beat it to the punch), and that's pretty cool. I suspect others to not be that far behind. (Kentucky and Calipari, you dropped the ball on this one.)

Good grief.

Kentucky freshman QB Whitlow adapting quickly to college game // Kentucky.com

"He's a big, tall, strong kid who stays in the pocket," DuBose said. "He doesn't like to give up the pocket and run around. He's got a very strong arm. ... He throws an exceptional ball, a very catchable ball."

Jalen Whitlow's high school coach describing his former player.

Don't be too concerned about these reports of bad practices -- practices are where you are supposed to mess up in order to fix things. Whitlow is a genuine talent, and he may be even better than we supposed when we recruited him.

All I can say about this is, "Doh." :-)

Get 'em while they're hot... well, you'll have to wait a few days, but you know what I mean.


Tom Leach // Thursday Links


UK football’s blueprint to success // The Kentucky Kernel

I think this is a very good, constructive article that rejects the opportunity to assign blame and illustrates a clear and viable path forward.

Until Kentucky fans and boosters take seriously the idea of improving the football program, it never will. But more than that is needed.

Confused? Not if you're a Kentucky fan.
