By now you have certainly seen the news that Vince Morrow will be staying at UK. It’s okay to be happy and celebrate, this is definitely news that should make your Monday morning.

That’s so awesome! Gotta be a meme.
Former Kentucky and Western Kentucky assistant Greg Nord is bound for Jim McElwain’s staff at Florida.
Damien Harris talks about his relationship with Alabama commitments. He also says that Neal Brown’s move to Troy doesn’t matter:
“I’ve got a close relationship with enough coaches at Kentucky where it doesn’t affect me at all,” he said.
Fingers, toes, etc. crossed…
- Jerry Meyer evaluates UK’s chances with the remaining five stars for 2015, currently having none of them picked to go to UK. I can almost (almost, mind you), guarantee he’s wrong about that.

Poor Louisville fans. Just when they were getting used to hating Chris Jones, he goes and pulls their fat out of the fire in their first ACC game at Wake Forest. Honestly, he looked like an all-American in that game.
Me, I’m just glad they didn’t mess up our pretty RPI. And their Egyptian looked pretty much like an Egyptian in that game. Meanwhile, Rob Dauster thinks Jones has finally received the message Rick Pitino has been trying to send him.
Utah curb-stomps UCLA, which takes all the shine off our victory over them. I really can’t blame Bruins fans for being beside themselves. Utah is pretty good, but they are no Kentucky.
