Wildcat Quickies: Bud Dupree Debut Edition

Kirby Lee-USA TODAY Sports

Alvin "Bud" Dupree made his NFL debut last night with two tackles against the Minnesota Vikings.  Bud struggled to get off blocks early on but I think we can give him a break as it was his professional debut.

I miss the guy already but give him credit, he looks pretty solid in the black and yellow.


Mac Jones is certainly all-in... is there any doubt he will be a HUGE factor in recruiting that class for us?


Freshman Surprise At Camp

Freshman Linebacker Jordan Jones impressed Mark Stoops, so much so that he decided to single him out as a standout performer.

'Cats Offer Trae Young

Young is a 4-star point guard in the 2017 class and Coach Cal has offered him a scholarship, could this be a package play with Michael Porter Jr.?

'Cats in Play for T.J. Leaf

As Jason posted yesterday, 2016 5-star power forward T.J. Leaf has included UK in his list of possible teams he would consider.  Leaf decommitted from Arizona  and would be a welcome addition to the 'Cats 2016 class

Jeff 'The Burner' Badet

Badet made several plays over the middle and utilized his speed to run away from everyone during the open practice.  Jeff Badet is in his third year on campus but is just a sophomore.  I am thinking Badet could be in for a breakout season.

I think Timmons, Garrett Johnson, Dorian Baker, and Badet will be a formidable 4 by season's end.

Fan Day and Open Practice

The turnout for Fan Day and the open practice was as big as it ever has been.  The energy around this team is in full-on snowball mode.  The players can feel it too, everyday I feel more confident about my 7-wins prediction.

Some of the tweets from folks regarding fan day and the open practice:

EPIC 5-on-5 potential

Could you imagine seeing this game go down... I would pay to see it.

Marshawn Lynch On The League

I love this show, and I love that Lynch came on to make fun of the Seahawks decision to pass the ball, pretty funny segment.

Florida State, LOL

The Seminoles decided they needed two team pictures, one with Dalvin Cook and one without.  So, I guess kudos to the Seminoles for being proactive????

R.I.P. Frank Gifford

Frank Gifford passed away this weekend at the age of 84.  In this great ESPN article, it discusses Gifford as making it 'Cool' to be a New York Giant.

FEAR The Walking Dead

Is anyone else as anxious to see this as I am?  I think it actually may end up being better than The Walking Dead, and I LOVE the original.
