Kentucky Wildcats Morning Quickies: Adolph Rupp's First Game Edition

Malcolm Emmons-US PRESSWIRE

News and commentary from around the Big Blue Internet. Only four Wildcats still on Chad Ford's list as first round draft picks. SIU coach Barry Hinson goes on epic rant. Matt Elam wants to "be like Tim Couch." More.

On this date in 1930, Adolph Rupp made his Kentucky coaching debut, and beat Georgetown 67-19. God knows, if we ever had a score that lopsided these days, the NCAA would pass some rule against it.

Tweet of the Morning:

Unless you've heard SIU coach Barry Hinson's rant, you won't get this, so be sure to listen. It's linked below.

  • Matt Elam wants to be like Tim. Couch, that is. Doesn't quite rhyme like "I want to be like Mike," though, does it?

  • Keep your fingers crossed:

    God knowns our secondary needs the help.

  • Florida defeats Memphis. Florida is starting to look more and more like a contender, contra my previous assertions to the contrary.

  • Dana O'Neil says the Gators lack nothing. If Chris Walker is eligible, I agree. They will become an instant contender on the national scene, and a serious challenge to Kentucky in the SEC.

  • I love this soon-to-be-legendary rant by SIU coach Barry Hinson. Calipari should play this for his basketball team and send Hinson a check. "House training a puppy dog. Bad dog." "We had a guy snipered on the court." This is great. You must spend six minutes of your life and listen to it. You won't regret it.

  • Charlie Strong favored by a couple of sportsbooks as a favorite for the Texas job. I kind of doubt it.

  • Okay, I get that they might consider this an illegal hit due to what looks like some contact with the helmet to the head. But the punter was trying to make a tackle. In football, when he does that, he's not "defenseless," and he is subject to being blocked — legally, and as hard as necessary, including a de-cleating slobber-knocker.

    The nannification of professional football continues. Bronko Nagurski is rolling over in his grave. God knows what Dick Butkus thinks.

  • Heh. The Sergio-Tiger feud erupts again, and Garcia implodes spectacularly at Sawgrass. Hilarious.
