Wildcat Quickies: Colonels vs. the 'Cats Edition

UK looks to get back to winning ways, Art Still in the HOF, Cal gets tough, and more quickies for your hump day.

Kentucky plays the Eastern Kentucky Colonels tonight at 7:00 on ESPN2.  After a long layoff from the UCLA debacle, it will be good for UK and the Big Blue Nation to see the boys back in action in a should-win game. The 'tale of the tape' of the geographical neighbors is below.


The good thing about playing Eastern is that our offense should get a healthy shot in the arm. The bad thing about playing Eastern is that they have a more than solid offense (averaging 90 points/game), albeit against lesser competition.

As any UK fan knows, someone goes nuts in Rupp Arena and has a career day, let us just hope it is not a few Colonels who get their "puppies set off the bus."



  • A Trio of UK Volleyball ladies have been named 2015 AVCA All-Region.  Ashley Dusek, Kaz Brown, and Morgan Bergen earned the honors.
  • UK Football great Art Still was inducted into the College Football Hall of Fame yesterday and he was all smiles during the ceremony.

"I've turned off my phone," she says. "I haven't looked at it. I've just been having long conversations with Mochi [her 7-year-old Argentinian Mastiff]."
  • Mark Schlabach has ranked all 40 bowls in terms of what games may be the best to watch.  Besides the College Football Playoffs, here are a few of his picks.
  1. Notre Dame vs. Ohio State
  2. Stanford vs. Iowa
  3. Oregon vs. TCU
  4. North Carolina vs. Baylor
  5. BYU vs. UTAH
  • UCONN's Kevin Ollie decided to express his disapproval with a referee by throwing a bunch of papers off the media table and onto the floor... if you are wanting to get T'd up, that will do it every time folks.

  • Former 'Cat Jodie Meeks is a few weeks away from returning and the Pistons are leaning toward a D-League rehab stint.
  • Former 'Cat Rajon Rondo has been nothing short of an All-Star thus far this season and he pulled off a very Rondo-esque move last night.  Didn't Rondo get called for a carry once for doing this at UK?

  • The University of Louisville has yet ANOTHER SCANDAL going on.  This one is not with the athletic programs, however, it is once again a part of unethical behavior.  The FBI is probing three UofL officials for misuse of federal grant money for non-university uses.
