Your Quickies:

  • Rank by Offers has added rankings for the 2013 recruiting class with player rankings and team rankings. See where UK ranks, you'll be very pleased. [Hank]

  • Very good interview with lots of information over at KSTV. [Hank]

  • Nice piece on TraVaughn Paschal over at the C-J. [Hank]

  • Why UK will wait on a decision from Berrios - looks like he's moved back to the QB spot. Is the Honeynut the next Johnny Football or the next Randle Cobb? [Hank]

  • Finally..two excellent pieces by Nick Roush and Jonathon Schuette @ KSR... lots of info. [Hank]

  • Kentucky talks about game-day logistics.

  • The final score won't be the best measure of Kentucky's football opener, according to this C-J writer. I say it is always a good, if not always the best measure, and if UK loses the game to Western, we are in for a very long, difficult season at best.

    I expect UK to win this game, and I'll be disappointed if they don't.

  • Former Louisville player Jeff Brohm is the offensive coordinator at Western, and he's talking about the game with Kentucky.

  • Star Hilltopper linebacker Andrew Jackson is talking smack. Good.

  • Rock M Nation thinks Missouri will handle Kentucky this year, even on the road. This is what I have to say.

  • Team Speed Kills still rates our 2-deep talent at the bottom of the SEC.

  • Dawg Sports has your SEC Coach Loathability Index. Here's what he says about Mark Stoops:

    9) Mark Stoops: At this point I'm only dimly aware of what a Mark Stoops is. I know he tweets about "Stoops Troops" which kind of reminds me of the "Goof Troop" cartoon. However, like Bielema, his loathability is sure to rise after the first time the Red and Black fiddle fart around with his squad as they seem to do with one out of every three football teams Kentucky fields. In other words, I'm not saying I don't loathe Mark Stoops. I'm just saying I don't loathe Mark Stoops just yet.

  • Lots of negativity in this article.

  • More on the Johnny Football first half suspension. I still don't get it.

  • Heh:

    We've always known that NCAA rules could be confusing and strange. Now we know the same goes for NCAA punishment.

    Obviously Manziel did something wrong or he wouldn't be suspended. But what exactly was his transgression? Not having enough Sharpies?

  • Dumb Crook news. Heh.

  • Charles Barkley prefers dumb basketball players:

    "I have a problem with the way the Sixers are running their organization right now," he said. "You know I don’t believe in that analytical crap. If LeBron James couldn’t spell cat, I want him on my team. I always tell people, give me a dumb guy that can really play. Don’t give me no smart guy."
