First, the bad news -- Donte Rupmph, UK defensive tackle, suffered an injury on Monday that could require surgery. He's still being evaluated. The good news is that UK Hoops advanced last night to the Sweet Sixteen for the third time in the last four years.

  • Stoops on sixth spring practice, losing DT Rumph // Kyle Tucker – UK Beat

    ON DONTE RUMPH NOT PRACTICING TODAY: "Donte got injured. Donte got injured on Monday. He’s getting evaluated today. It looks like it’s a fairly significant injury. He may be out for a while, may require some surgery. We’ll see. We’ll keep you updated. It’s a big loss though. He probably is the most consistent player we had going on defense, so big loss for us."


  • Mark Stoops no fan of ‘average practices’, UK looking for WRs // Saturday Down South

    Everyone (I’m guilty!) has been giddy at the thought of Kentucky’s offense racking up yards through the air, but few know the amount of receivers it takes to make the Air Raid offense work. And Kentucky has nowhere near the bodies right now.

    That’s exactly what Stoops says.

  • Notre Dame football transfers: Attrition hits 2012 Irish recruiting class //

    On National Signing Day 2012, Notre Dame fans were quite happy. Coach Brian Kelly’s third recruiting class looked very strong. It included 17 players – one a five-star, and another eight of whom were rated a consensus four-stars.

    But now, just 13 months after signing, almost half of those star recruits are gone, including the top three signees from its 2012 recruiting class.

    Ugh. Irish eyes are … crying?

  • Joker Phillips, football coach and notorious supervillain //

    Now, this is funny and self-deprecating. I really appreciate it, and I’ll bet some recruits do as well.

  • THE CURIOUS INDEX, 3/27/2013 // Every Day Should Be Saturday

    A. This is clearly Will Muschamp losing his mind and destroying a whiteboard for having the audacity to show what his defense–his Texas Longhorn defense at the time–was not doing against a very simple single back, two tight formation running power for significant gains. You hear the “DO YOUR JOB” part? As he says this, the dark mark of Saban burns on his arm like an old war wound.

    Love Spencer Hall. He never fails to make me laugh.
