Fall camp has begun, and the good appears to outweigh the bad so far.

Good morning, ladies and gentlemen of the Big Blue Nation, and welcome to the Tuesday Morning Quickies. Today, football is on tap because fall camp has officially begun.

Yesterday, Kentucky named former Tennessee defensive coordinator John Jancek into an off-the-field role on the support staff for the defense. Meanwhile, Vince Marrow thinks that Ohio State’s recruiting strategy is actually helping UK get better players from the Buckey State and surrounds:

“A lot of people probably don’t care for Urban Meyer,” Marrow said of the Ohio State head coach. “I love Urban Meyer, and I’m going to tell you why. He recruits nationally. And Ohio is (one of the highest) producing states in football. I have to tell him, ‘Thank you for not recruiting all those guys.’”

“Because if Jim Tressel was still there,” he said, “half of these kids you see out here from Ohio would be at Ohio State.”

Interesting, and I think at least partially true. Tressel was famous for locking up Ohio’s best.

“His ‘talent,’ if you wish to stretch the word, is his shamelessness in saying the outrageous, the outlandish and the demonstrably untrue. He was of little consequence as an athlete himself. I do not know of any major accomplishments in any area of business or entrepreneurship (outside of his Big Baller Brand, built off the talent of Lonzo, his oldest son) worthy of public recognition. Nor do I know of any skill he has demonstrated as a youth coach.”

  • Remember Mitchell Robinson, the 5-star center that committed to Rick Stansbury and Western Kentucky? He’s kind of… not there. I heard a little about him at a fraternity golf scramble down in Bowling Green this weekend. He was never right for WKU.
