Saturday Quickies: Beat Bama Edition

I have a feeling it’s going to be a long evening in Tuscaloosa.

NCAA Football: Vanderbilt at Kentucky Arden Barnes-USA TODAY Sports

Good morning to all of you. A tweet came down last night form Kyle Tucker that made the odd of the Kentucky Wildcats defeating the Alabama Crimson Tide even longer than they were:

It was bound to happen and I’m glad Kentucky has done such a good job handling the virus. But could this have hit at a worse time? We all know how difficult it is going to be for the Cats but being down up to 16 players makes it damn near impossible. I’m not sure which positions have been hit but there really isn’t a position where Kentucky can afford to lose people.

I think the main things we can get out of this game are no injuries and respect.

Tweets of the Day

Dwight Howard has been replaced with a younger, more effective player. If Anthony Davis does indeed re-sign with the Lakers, that team is going to be even better than they were.

Isaiah Jackson is trending toward that lottery.

Well at least they’ll look good today.

Quickies

John Wall wants out of Washington | Cats Pause- I don’t think the Wizards will be sorry to see him go. The last few years for Wall have been rife with injury.

Alabama previews Kentucky | Roll Tide Roll- I talked to a radio host out of Alabama yesterday and the main thing he said the Tide was worried about with Kentucky is their physicality and running options at QB.

Big Blue Madness recap | UK Athletics- All the videos from last night in one go-to spot.

Week 9 bold predictions | SDS- Kentucky covering isn’t that much of a bold prediction given that Nick Saban rarely runs up the score. He will put his team in cruise control once they get up a few touchdowns.

Expert picks for the top 25 | CBS- Kentucky covering but losing is a popular theme today.

Purdue loses because of questionable call | USA Today- Purdue has been having a good season. That’s a rough way to lose to a down Minnesota team.

Louisville shuts out Syracuse | WDRB- If you think Kentucky’s offense is bad, check out the Orange. They can’t do ANYTHING on offense except turn the ball over to the opposing defense.

Grading the Lakers acquisition of Montrezl Harrell | SI.com- A++++

I’ll be back on the Kentucky Fish and Wildlife UK Postgame Show right after the Cats finish in Tuscaloosa. Join me and I’ll try to have some fun.
