Kentucky Wildcats Morning Quickies: We Need Football Fast Edition

News and commentary from around the Big Blue Internet. JUCO DB Nate Willis qualifies, will attend UK. Finally. Mark Stoops happy with practice, names several who impress. Johnny Manziel continues to make headlines. More.


Okay, as we run up to the college football season, things are getting really weird out there. We need college sports soon, or it just might require a collective, mass appearance on Dr. Phil.

Tweet of the Morning:

One of my favorites ever. Fo' shizzle.

  • UK makes Devin Booker's final five. He'll be in town for Big Blue Madness.

  • Chad Ford's NBA Draft Big Board for 2014 includes 7 Wildcats, according to Ben Roberts. I'm not a subscriber, so I'm happy to take his word for it.

  • Consider this, from Myron Metcalf:


    Best case: An undefeated season. I know, I know: That's crazy. But when you consider how close the 2012 group came (a last-second shot at Indiana and one blase SEC tournament performance were their only losses) and the talent the 2013-14 group has at its disposal, is it really that crazy? A national title is the obviously expectation going into the season; what if the Cats somehow do more?

    Worst case: Losing in the Final Four? Losing in the national title game? Expectations are so high that almost anything but a national title will feel like the worst possible outcome. Crazy, but that's where we are.

    He's absolutely right. That's where we are.

  • Who will lead Kentucky? Fortunately, this year Kentucky has a number of candidates, from Julius Randle to the Harrison twins. Don't be surprised to find Willie Cauley-Stein exerting leadership, either. Hat tip: Aaron's blog
