Tweet of the Morning:

Heh. I am sure that the head coach had nothing at all to do with that. Nah.

Your Quickies:

Kentucky football
  • Neal Brown thinks we need playmakers, not more effort. Well, yes, but what we really need is an offensive line. Brown agrees:

    "I did think this – and I’ll say this about the kids we have right now: the results weren’t what we wanted but our kids did play hard. We didn’t have an effort issue. We didn’t have an effort issue at all this year. We’re just – we’re real thin at offensive line. We’re real thin and those guys are banged up and it showed – showed big tonight.

  • Bud Dupree: Will he stay or will he go?

  • The curtain closes on Mark Stoops' first act as head football coach. It was a disappointing show, but one I was ready for.

  • Mark Stoops post-Tennessee press conference:

  • Mark Story repeats essentially the same argument I (among others) have made on here about the quarterback situation. The problem is, there is no clear solution.

College football
  • USA Today coach's poll out today. Alabama's drop is rather precipitous considering the circumstances, but I suppose it's hard to put them in front of Auburn, even though I would have. At a neutral site, Alabama is likely a better team, and the Auburn win was very fluky.

  • From the Land of Foregone Conclusions:


    SB Nation's Andy Hutchins has more.

  • Florida St. #1 for the first time since 2000. I wonder if Mark Stoops is having any remorse — he'd most likely be coaching in the BCS championship if he hadn't come to UK

College basketball
  • Tennessee is shaping up to be very tough this season.

  • LSU desperately needs a win versus Butler today to avoid a 3-game skid. They'd better stop turning the ball over if they want to avoid that ignominious fate.
