Kentucky Wildcats: Morning Quickies - Statue of Liberty Edition

Patrick Briggs

News and commentary from around the Big Blue Internet. Four-star receiver Keif picks Alabama over Kentucky. Terrence Jones plays video games with ailing young man. Epic battles between Alex Poythress and Julius Randle. More.

In 1885, the Statue of Liberty arrived in New York Harbor. Thanks again, France!

Tweet of the Morning:

Makes too much sense, I guess.

And Derek Keif from yesterday:

Your Quickies:

Kentucky football
  • Four-star WR Derek Keif committed to Alabama. When you go up against the big boys, you often lose more than you win. Congrats to Keif on his commitment. More here, via Hank.

    Still more at Roll Bama Roll, and they note that they expect Keif to red shirt. Maybe we still have a shot at him after all? Doubt it, though.

  • Nation's Elite offers their list of the top 20 WRs for 2014. [Hank]

  • David Climer objects to Mark Stoops offering scholarships to kids too young to even be in high school. I object to the practice, also, but the facts are that:

    • We only have the kid's word it happened, and;
    • Stoops did not offer the kid, an assistant reportedly did.

    I really don't like the practice, and it isn't worth the crap you get doing it, in my view. Hat tip: John Clay

  • I have to admit, Morgan Newton's self-sack never gets old -- at least to other SEC bloggers ...

Other UK sports
  • Is UofL on a hot streak, or can it outpace UK in athletics from now on? Eric Crawford asks the question, but I think the answer is more self-evident than he does. Hot streak.

*Nobody from Kentucky tried out for the Team USA under 19 team, but Montrezl Harrell (Louisville), Jarnell Stokes (Tennessee), and Michael Frazier (Florida) are three rival players who have made the final 16 players.
