The Big Blue Daily Mail -- Sam Houston State Edition

Tonight, the Wildcats take on the Bearkats of Sam Houston State, a team I know absolutely nothing about, as their opening round game in the Cancun Challenge.  Rumors have been swirling about the availability of Darnell Dodson and John Wall, but I have heard nothing definite.  The closest I can come is:

  • Calipari is very unhappy with Darnell Dodson at the moment (that could explain why it took him so long to get into the game on Monday).
  • Calipari is getting happier with DeAndre Liggins.  Happy enough to play him?
  • John Wall's uncle passed away earlier this week. Our sympathy goes out to his family.  I have no idea if he will play or not, but I suspect he will.

In other news worth highlighting, UK just secured another football recruit, Avery Williamson, a Rivals 3* linebacker out of Milan, Tennessee.  Willimson impressed at Lane Kiffin's Tennessee Camp and is one of the very best in the Volunteer state.  Even though UT was not heavily recruiting Williamson, UK has had great success with the overlooked players from Tennessee and Georgia.

And finally there is this item about one of my favorite players, Chuck Hayes.  I somehow missed this when it come out (I'm sure somebody linked it, though) but I think it deserves special attention.  I love Chuck Hayes, and when he gets accolades, I like to put it on the front page.

The news follows the jump.
