Kentucky heads down to Alabama today to try to give the Tide a taste of what they usually give us on the gridiron. Should be fun.

Tweet of the Morning

Greg Anthony was apparently solicitating a "professional," which is very much still a crime in most of the country, even Washington D.C.

Your Quickies:

Kentucky football
Kentucky basketball
  • The Hoophall Classic is this weekend in Massachusetts. Isaiah Briscoe will be participating, as well as UK recruit Brandon Ingram.

  • Fox Sports’ Reed Forgrave and Tarik Turner talk about Duke’s weaknesses and Kentucky’s strength. Anyone who imagines Jahlil Okafor as a rim protector is out of his depth in this sport. Dakari Johnson has equivalent overall athleticism to Okafor, although he’s not as skilled.

    Turner is on drugs if he seriously thinks Ulis is going to replace Andrew. These media people are just completely insane about this Ulis-Harrison thing, and absolutely refuse to let it go. I can only assume it is to produce controversy, because it’s not a serious debate if you have even a modicum of understanding of Calipari.

    At the end of the game, it’s more likely both Andrew and Ulis will be in together than Ulis in favor of Andrew. Why would you favor one over the other when they are so different and yet both so valuable? That’s why these guys are commentators and not coaches, I suppose.

  • Calipari says players get "protected" in the platoon system (drink):

    "You’re not out there long enough to look like, ‘Oh my God, look at him!’ You’re not out there long enough to do that. And if you do start playing, then the next group comes in, you get your head together, you go back and you play better.

    Good point.
