This Linkapalooza will be mostly about Kentucky's 47-14 victory over the Kent St. Golden Flashes, but there are also a few things in there about the basketball team as well as some random SEC links.
Tweet of the weekend so far:
If you want something to put you to sleep just watch the Georgia Missouri game.— Jadeveon Clowny (@JadeveonClowny) September 9, 2012
Yeah, that's what I want if I'm Steve Spurrier -- one of my best players providing locker-room material to two future foes in one tweet.
Your links follow the jump.
John Calipari's public relations skill is legend, but this is taking it to a whole new level. Nothing, and I mean nothing can endear Coach Cal to the Big Blue Faithful like awarding a scholarship to two Kentucky walk-ons.
Except winning an NCAA Tournament title, of course.
Thank you, Coach Brooks, both for being a great coach at UK, and for providing a great reminder that you really care about the players here.
What, no Kentucky on your ballot, John? Just kidding.
Interesting comments. I do wonder how Boyd will do against SEC competition. Randall Cobb wasn't the fastest, but he was ... well, Randall Cobb. Boyd is bigger and stronger. Can he really continue this level of performance?
I hope so. It would be a hell of a story.
Can John Hood be the Aaron Boyd of the basketball team?
I agree with letting Drake coach in the alumni game. I don't agree with the ring. But hey, nobody's perfect, not even Coach Cal.
Aaron Boyd took three years to become a football player. Can he become a football player and a star in only 12 games?
More Aaron Boyd. I'm anxious to see if he can continue this kind of play. I sure hope so, because having two big receivers is a luxury we have rarely had at UK.
One thing at a time. If UK continues to put points on the board, and demonstrates that it can be competitive, the fans will return to the stands. Or so they say.
One game won't do it, but two games might begin the turnaround. Most fans understand our football program is not Alabama, but they do want something to cheer for.
I think most fans are aware that Western is anything but a pushover this year. If UK can look good against them, hope will begin to return to the football program.
Offered without comment.
Want to scout the Western Kentucky Hilltoppers? Here is a great place to start. Outsidethesidelines is one of our best football analysts at SB Nation.
One of our newest SB Nation blogs talks about their loss to the Florida Gators yesterday.
The headline speaks for itself.
Okay, so Vanderbilt looked great against South Carolina, then laid an egg at Northwestern. So that means we have a chance, right? Right?
Just so you ... you know, are aware.
