Here we are again, I with a few minutes to kill before my date night with my wife, and the Twitter account. What kind of damage can I do? Let’s see:
Kevin Blackistone said a South Carolina study shows that 4 pct. of athletes generate revenue. The other 96 pct. are nothing but expense.— Brian Davis (@BDavisAAS) August 6, 2014
Hmm. So paying “athletes” seems out of the question. We’re talking about 4% of the athletes. That should be an interesting debate:
Female basketball player: So the boys get paid and not me?
Administrator: That’s right. They make money. You take money.
FBBP: But that’s not fair! What can I do?
A: See below
Donna Lopiano calls for limited anti-trust exemption based on NCAA reform. Interesting.— Dennis Dodd (@dennisdoddcbs) August 6, 2014
Any fool can tell truth, but it requires a man of some sense to know how to lie well.— Doron Lamb (@DLamb20) August 6, 2014
What the heck did we teach you here, Doron? That’s a scary one.
Dakari Johnson basically grabs every offensive rebound within 10 feet of him. And now he's dunking all the time. http://t.co/a7DQZEwQqI— Kyle Tucker (@KyleTucker_CJ) August 6, 2014
He learned from the best last season, I say.
Tip-off Marathon will feature Baylor vs Kentucky women at Rupp Arena on Nov. 17 at 7 p.m. on ESPN2.— Jen Smith (@jenheraldleader) August 6, 2014
Could we be in for another barn-burner? Not likely, but I’d love to see it.
Cal said he may let assistants coach some games in Bahamas. Priority is learning more about UK players, not winning.— Jerry Tipton (@JerryTipton) August 6, 2014
Well, let’s get the most out of it, whatever we do. Winning is always important.
Cal: "I got guys that understand so I can get back to coaching the way I used to coach."— Kyle Tucker (@KyleTucker_CJ) August 6, 2014
I’d like to see that. I really would. And, I’d like to see it no matter what “the guys” do. They will get more from you that way.
Hearing from LOTS of readers that back spasms can be that debilitating, and can go away that fast. I stand corrected on Tiger. I mean it!— Gregg Doyel (@GreggDoyelCBS) August 6, 2014
This is absolutely right. I once had back spasms in Myrtle Beach as I was getting ready for the beach. I practically had to crawl to the beach in agony, hoping they would go away.
I managed to get in the surf for about 2 hours, came back feeling fine, left the beach and played 18 holes of golf. So yes, back spasms can go quickly. And in case you were wondering:
Yes, Tiger will play in the PGA Championship. Too bad he can't win. http://t.co/mH60EFr1It pic.twitter.com/Hh7O0I4sjF— SB Nation (@SBNation) August 6, 2014
Love him or hate him, he’s going to be there. I guess that's good.
UK is rolling out Kentucky players' updated heights and weights. Marcus Lee now listed 6-9, 220.— Kyle Tucker (@KyleTucker_CJ) August 6, 2014
That’s still pretty skinny.
For the Kentucky fans who still follow me, a friend tipped me off to this awesome Joe B. Hall classic album/song: https://t.co/PVhHA0DrHL— Matt May (@MattMayKY) August 6, 2014
Yeah. Well, okay then.
This is why America's most talented athletes want to play in the SEC: pic.twitter.com/z7E0fBYGL5— Not Jerry Tipton (@NotJerryTipton) August 6, 2014
Exactly right. Whenever I travel, Waffle House is my destination every morning and sometimes at lunch. I don’t eat there a lot, but whenever I leave town, I do.
The Harrison twins look more confident this year. Cal says that's no coincidence; they know what they're doing now. http://t.co/L1JxZAOmzD— CoachCal.com (@CoachCalDotCom) August 6, 2014
Yes, they do know what they’re doing. They figured it out late last season. It took them a while, but I don’t think they are likely to forget.
This Hobbit is 33 years old today. Barely out of its tweens. pic.twitter.com/JqdtMifrvb— Lacey Delacroix (@Popehat) August 6, 2014
Hey, that looks exactly like my copy — dog-eared, coffee-stained… all of it.
Sorry to hear Netflix is doing a second second Arrested Development. It's dead, Jim. @FilmLadd— Lacey Delacroix (@Popehat) August 6, 2014
Serious question: Seven game series between our college Team USA squad http://t.co/vtM7raSXkO and this year's Kentucky team. Who ya got?— Rob Dauster (@RobDauster) August 6, 2014
Oh, I got Kentucky big boy. By about 12. Of course, being a partisan, you can’t go by me. But when you look at the team… well, as I say, give me Kentucky and call my sunglasses blue.
