The UL shirt claims a title in 1948, when UK won it. That wouldn't be more UL if it smoked Black & Milds and missed child support payments.— Not Jerry Tipton (@NotJerryTipton) August 30, 2012
Seriously, Not Jerry Tipton could win this thing almost every morning.
Your quickies follow the jump.
Kentucky Sports Radio // Twitter 101: Special Louisville Edition
There are none so blind as those who will not see. Twitter is the bane of the modern world, but Drew Franklin calls out some Cardinal fans for taking douchebaggery to a new level.
Death threats, Card fans? Really?
The strange case of Dezmine Wells // ESPN
What happens when there is a rush to judgment? A prosecutor, who tries to put people in jail for a living, gets a "no true bill" from a grand jury and then criticizes the process by which Wells was expelled from Xavier.That is extraordinary, and although Wells cannot be exonerated by the legal system, this is just about as close as you can come.
This makes me feel much better about the young man. Nice work by Eammon Brennan. Hat tip: Troy Machir.

SEC Football 2012: The Every Game Preview // SBNation.com
Enjoy it if you can. I found it a bit forced, but it's probably just because they dissed UK at every possible turn. God, I'd love a few laughs at the nay-sayer's expense. Wonder if I'll get any?
Kentucky Sports Radio // Welcome to Louisville Hate Day 2012
It's the annual "Louisville Hate Day" at KSR. Here at A Sea of Blue, we will refrain from hate and settle for disdain.
Then again, "Louisville Disdain Day" just doesn't quite roll off the tongue, does it?

Heart of Cats’ O: Running backs // The Kentucky Kernel
If we can really run on the Cardinals Saturday, I like our chances.
Joker Phillips says he’s not worried about a little rain // John Clay's Sidelines
Well, if running the ball is really our strength, rain could be a good thing.
