Your Quickies:

  • Kentucky lands 2014 defensive back Shyquawn Pullium, a JUCO transfer. Pullium is not rated by yet. You can also find the Herald-Leader story here.

  • Kentucky's opener against Western will kick off at 7 pm Eastern time at LP field in Nashville.

  • An extremely in-depth look at Kentucky's 2013 football prospects by a somewhat unusual source -- the Detroit Free Press. This is a long, detailed article that absolutely deserves your time.

  • UK 2014 target Matt Elam is down to UK and Alabama, leaving Louisville out in the cold.

    Being in the SEC is really helping Kentucky recruit, even if we are currently the dregs of the league.

  • Mookie Blaylock, former Oklahoma Sooner and Atlanta Hawks guard, is in serious condition after a car crash in which another person was killed. He wasn't driving drunk, but he had a suspended license and other legal issues at the time of the accident. He could be charged with vehicular homicide.

  • The hiring of former Tennessee volleyball coach Julie Hermann as the Rutgers athletics director has created even more attention for a school that is under under assault by the media for coaches behaving badly.

    This comes on the heels of this piece by Greg Edwards about the long list of difficulties at Tennessee. Right now, Rutgers is getting all the heat, but sooner or later, somebody is going to remember the Tennessee connection.
