Hey, I resemble this. I did write, and I did complain fairly loudly and repeatedly in the Quickies and other comments. I guess it was heard somewhere!
RT @FXA5: Happy birthday to my least favorite basketball player of all-time @boogiecousins >>> lol thanks— DeMarcus Cousins (@boogiecousins) August 13, 2014
How can the Big Cuz be anybody’s least favorite player? It just boggles the mind.
Happy birthday, big guy.

What I want to know is what the contrarians are expecting/want? Probably has to do with the "one and done" thing. Some people are just so low-information and either counter-intellectual or hyper-intellectual that you can’t convince them of anything.
Interesting. ESPN The Magazine has UK #54 overall and UL #50— Paul Jordan (@PJordan_WBN) August 13, 2014
Well, that is interesting! Don’t tell the SEC — they don’t think anybody not in the SEC deserves to be ranked anywhere.
@ASeaOfBlue wait till we beat them this year... That number will cut in half— KeithGarrett (@_KeithGarrett) August 13, 2014
Yeah, that might… you know… tick it down a notch or three!

I don’t think this needs exposition.
How much would a Kentucky booster pay to dump a bucket of ice water on Pitino's head? And vice versa for UL and Calipari? I bet six figures— Rob Dauster (@RobDauster) August 13, 2014
Sounds like a perfect charity idea! What about it, guys?
So Calipari can do this too? pic.twitter.com/oVUaVyEEXp— Darrell Bird (@DarrellBird) August 11, 2014
Yeah. Not very well, though — I got seasick when they showed his camera. He may be a great coach, but I hope he’s not thinking about quitting for becoming a camera guy.
New UK women's commitment Taylor Murray is ranked #11 overall by Prospects Nation, #27 by ESPN and #30 by All-Star Girls report.— Ben Roberts (@NextCats) August 13, 2014
Matthew Mitchell just keeps loading them up. Be sure to read Jords’ latest here.
That’s all I have for now, ladies and gentlemen of the Big Blue Nation. This week so far has been awesome, and suddenly, the weather has decided to come from mid-September instead of mid-August here in the Bluegrass. I’m going out for a long walk.
