Kentucky Wildcats Morning Quickies: Top Plays of the Calipari Era Edition

Pick Kentucky's best plays in the last six seasons. Jamal Murray highly coveted by top draft teams. More.

Christopher Hanewinckel-USA TODAY Sports

Good morning, ladies and gentlemen of the Big Blue Nation, and welcome to the Tuesday Quickies.

John Calipari and Kentucky will release a bracket-style challenge to fill in the best Kentucky basketball plays of the Coach Cal era. Let me enter a couple of candidates into the mix. First, a sure selection:

Second, this one is… um… memorable.

Third, how can you forget this?

Finally, a relative oldie, but goodie:

Finding ten of these should be as easy as pie. I can think of three or four more right off the top of my head. What a run we have been on!

  • Seen yesterday:

    Thanks, Coach.

  • Nebraska transfer Courtney Love is on a service trip to Ethiopia, but he’s ready to make an impact this season:

    Love, a 6-foot-2, 240-pound sophomore, has yet to play a down for Kentucky, but he’s one of the few defenders, and linebackers especially, who have college experience. In 2014, he played in 12 games and had six tackles for the Cornhuskers. But during his redshirt year the previous season, he was named Nebraska’s Scout Team Defensive MVP.

  • Even a stopped clock is right twice per day, and Pat Forde is right on this one:

    When Mississippi shocked the college football world and signed the No. 7 recruiting class in the nation in February 2013, it didn’t pass the smell test for a lot of people in and around the sport.

    Three years later, we can say with reasonable certainty that their noses did not deceive them. There was a questionable odor coming from Oxford then, and it is lingering over Hugh Freeze’s program to this day.

    Yeah, when you see programs like Ole Miss out-recruiting Alabama, you know something is rotten in Denmark.
