Kentucky Wildcats Morning Quickies: Christmas Eve Eve Edition

Mark Zerof-USA TODAY Sports

News and commentary from around the Big Blue Internet. Kentucky hoops loses to Duke in front of a sellout crowd in Rupp Arena. Kentucky 2014 signess have big games. Hype for Kentucky-Louisville begins. More.

This is the Monday before Christmas Eve, a day that will probably see very little productivity. Except for me, I must be very productive today.

Tweet of the Morning:

Why not a little smack talk?

Your Quickies:

Kentucky football
  • If Matt Elam comes to Kentucky, will that make Stoops consider a 3-4? I don't think so, but it's possible.
Kentucky basketball
  • The hype is beginning. Well, this is, quite possibly, the biggest UK-UL game since the 2012 Final Four game. It pits a Louisville squad who has been pounding nobodies and has zero quality wins against a UK squad that has lost to three quality teams in it's only three tries, and sometimes looked unimpressive against the little guys.

    In fact, can the adjective "impressive" be used to describe any Kentucky win to date? I can't think of one.

  • Jay Bilas comments on Kentucky's current lack of cohesion:

    "For such a young team, every practice and film session is important," Bilas said. "This game is another step in the collective maturation of this team. UK can take a big step forward in a loss, too. The key is how they play, not whether they win this one game.

    While that's true, it's a bit too glib for this particular game.

  • Karl Towns Jr. has 19 and 9 this weekend. He's going to be a really fun player to watch in Blue and White next season. Hat tip: NextCats

  • Tyler Ulis has a big game this weekend. I think this kid just might be up to the job

  • Eric Crawford ruminates on the big upcoming game. Consider:

    "Worst scheduling ever," sophomore Willie Cauley-Stein said. "That's my opinion. To be away from your teammates and coaches for three days before a really big game. It's going to be big, but we'll see how it goes."

    There's no doubt that the scheduling hurts Kentucky more in this one, but the schedule is the schedule.

  • Why Kentucky is better than Louisville. I can think of lots of reasons.
