Kentucky Wildcats: Morning Quickies - Baltimore Ravens Edition

News and commentary from around the Big Blue Internet. Ravens defeat 49ers in a thrilling Super Bowl. Kentucky lands 3-star offensive lineman from Florida. Patrick Patterson has a big game. Hoops loses to Georgia. More.

Strange days, indeed.

What a game last night between the Baltimore Ravens and the San Francisco 49ers. It was a lot of fun to watch, even with the blackout and the inordinately high number of completely humorless commercials.

Tweet of the Morning:

Heh. Funny stuff. The Super Bowl was a great game, but I'll just leave this right here:

  • Football Recruiting - Social media pose risks for recruits

    Numerous prospects have talked about harassment on social media sites, especially Twitter, and the recruiting process becoming a hassle and a negative memory because of vicious and nasty fans. The access is unprecedented in a time when notoriety is unprecedented.
    Twitter is the devil.

  • Indiana, Michigan: Nation's two best teams // ESPN
    I thought Michigan played soft, and took too many threes. They let IU speed them up, and that's why they lost.

  • Don't freak out if Florida loses // Ken Pomeroy

    While Florida’s run has been impressive and unusual, it’s not unprecedented. Even with this run, they will probably lose again in regular-season play, maybe even twice. When that happens, there will be some chatter about what’s wrong with Florida. But taking a longer view, they should still be expected to lose a game. (My system has the Gators as better than 50/50 to go unbeaten in SEC play, but it’s working with an unrealistically high rating.) So there may not be any reason to freak out when they do.
    I just want one or both of those losses to be against Kentucky.

  • Patterson Prevails - Rockets Push Past Bobcats 109-95 - The Dream Shake

    The script was familiar, and a home loss against the HorniCats loomed. Who could save the Rockets from snatching defeat from the jaws of victory?

    Patrick Patterson, that's who. Patterson simply went berserk to start the 4th, pulled the Rockets even, then brought them the lead. 2Pat shot 10-12, and scored 24 points. He dropped 14 of those in the 4th, scoring 12 straight to open the quarter.

    In all the news of MKG's injury, we completely missed Patterson's big game.
  • Clippers' Eric Bledsoe shows no room for doubt against Celtics //

    Bledsoe tied his career high in points with 23 and field goals made at nine — he took 15 shots. He tied his season high in assists with 10, to go along with seven rebounds, in the Clippers' 106-104 loss.
    This is the least heralded guy coming into Kentucky in 2009. Amazing.
  • Love him or hate him, we'll all miss Ray Lewis // News, Rumors, Scores, Stats, Fantasy

    If you hate him, you're going to miss hating him. The world needs a bad guy, and if you decided Ray Lewis was a bad guy, he was the most perfect bad guy God ever created. A double-murderer, some of you think. An obstructionist of justice, Ray Lewis himself admitted at a trial in 2000.
