The Big Blue Daily Mail -- All the News That's Fit for Wildcats

Today, as you might expect on the first day back from a vacation, I was, as the saying goes amongst a restaurant waitstaff, "in the weeds."  It is always tough coming back from vacation after having essentially ignored your real work for a week, but it was well worth it -- I enjoyed every minute of my time on the beach.

Today, there is surprisingly little to talk about other than the fact that the whole, "John Calipari 24/7/365," is finally beginning to settle down into something vaguely resembling a regular news day.  That doesn't mean that there isn't any news -- Dicky Lyons Jr. made some news today when he told us about his plans, and we are beginning to gradually move toward NCAA football season, which should begin to ramp up here in the very near future.

Speaking of football, there is a much talked-about article on Sports Illustrated's website entitled, "How Rich Brooks made football relevant for Kentucky Wildcats fans."  It has been linked early and often around the UK and even SEC blogosphere, but if you haven't had the chance to check it out yet, you should -- it is very informative and interesting.

And now, for the rest of the news:

  • SEC 2009 // The Lexington Ledger - Team Speed Kills
    Cocknfire at Team Speed Kills continues to crank out the great football stories day after day. You think that guy doesn't have a day job or something. Or maybe, he just writes really fast. Anyway, another great read.

  • Ah, the Dookies.
    They never grow tired of logically flawed arguments. And double standards. I love them so.
