And we know what "violation of team rules" usually means, right?

Your Quickies:

Kentucky football
  • Very interesting work on Stoops and UK. Not sure I agree with the writer, but everyone has an opinion. [Hank]

    [Glenn] This is about as good as you'll ever get from Dan Wolken. He's pretty much been on the anti-Kentucky train since Calipari came, and possibly before.

  • With the above in mind... [Hank]

  • Interesting...wonder why they didn't do the same for the Big East football? [Hank]

  • Landon Foster makes the Ray Guy watch list for best college punter. Not bad for a sophomore.

  • The latest from the Drew Barker Diaries. [Hank]

    [Glenn] Very classy comments from Teddy Bridgewater of Louisville:

    Seeing Teddy Bridgewater was pretty cool. I had met him before on visits to Louisville, but I haven’t seen him since I committed to Kentucky. He was kind of teasing me about going to Kentucky, but was very courteous about the new staff. He said he’s seen all of the recruiting efforts and is glad UK is on the rise because it would be good for the rivalry and the state to not only have two really good basketball teams, but two good football teams as well. He’s a really nice guy, and pretty cool about it all.

    Also this:

    How about my man TV Williams! TV is a really big get for us. He’s not really that highly rated because of his size, but he’s lightning fast and if you watch his highlight film, you can tell he’s a playmaker in the open field. In the Air Raid offense, you need those type of guys who can dump down screens and take a one-yard pass and turn it into an 80-yard touchdown.

    Read the whole thing, it's worth your time.

  • T.V. Williams was a nice birthday present for Mark Stoops. [Hank]

  • The comments are priceless.

  • Who says Kentucky fans don't love football? All we need is a reason and a dash of hope. Idaho? [Hank]

  • Cats get some respect from iHigh in their SEC preview. Avery Williamson is a 1st team pick and Landon Foster makes 2nd team. Za'Darius Smith is named Newcomer of the Year. [Hank]

  • News about JUCO 2013 commit Nate Willis. "Hold On - I'm Coming." [Hank]

  • Really cool photo! [Hank]

  • Speaking of Cool: Bob Dylan - He's always been cool in my eyes and he gets better with age like fine wine: [Hank]
