Yeah, that Willie, he’s a little different.
So now I guess we have to refer to him as WTCS?

I know this isn’t sport related, but this tweet is truly worthy of The Onion, even if the story is disturbing and all too real.
Then, Lex 18 tries to outdo them:
Not as ironic, perhaps, but compressing a lot of information into a few words can make nose-coffee happen.
- Wow, Javess Blue! If I were the Packers, I’d give him a contract based on this alone.
Remember Derrick Jasper? KSR has a nice "where are they now?" piece on him.
At 6‘10" with moves like this, it’s easy to see why:
UK basketball will have a different look next season. Yes, and something more familiar, I’d say, than what we had last season.
Seems UK has shown some interest in LaGerald Vick, a shooting guard prospect who is thinking about moving to 2015. 247Sports sees him as a 4-star and the #17 shooting guard in the nation in 2016. Rivals.com has him as a 3-star, but reading some scouting reports on him make me think he’s underrated because he’s skinny. He’s very athletic and apparently a very good shooter. He was previously verbally committed to SMU, but has since opened his recruitment back up.
I must say that this kid appears to have game. He is long at 6‘5" with a 6‘8" wingspan, his shooting form is excellent, and his athleticism is quite good. He’s gangly and rawboned, which makes him look a little awkward, but put about 30 pounds on him and you might just have a quality wing. Here’s some tape:
Other Kentucky sports
After just having just been swept by Tennessee, the Hittin’ Kittens face them again in the SEC Tournament. Revenge would be sweet.
SEC East spring checkup by Saturday Down South. Major injuries could be a factor, and Kentucky has one.
Mark Story against the star system. We know from previous analysis that the star rating is a predictor of NFL success. It’s facile to write that more 3-stars got drafted than either four or five, but there are many more of them to begin with. Just because diamonds in the rough can be found, it doesn’t mean you should eschew higher ranked players in hopes of finding them. They are under the radar for a reason.
- Two sides of the same coin: The most surprisingly good players of last season, and on the obverse, the most surprisingly bad. I think Vanderbilt’s Riley LaChance deserved a mention for the good, myself.
Other sports news
Remember Craig Ehlo, the Cavaliers guard who was famously victimized by what is still known today as The Shot by Michael Jordan and the Bulls? He wound up on the wrong side of a prescription drug addiction, but has recovered. It’s an interesting story about a player I remember well.
Man, May 4th really brings out the Star Wars in us. Even in basketball games.

The cult of healthy eating has more in common with religion than science. Yes, that’s unsurprising. It seems like a lot of things are turning out that way.
Oh, man, if I were younger, I’d have to have the Galaxy S-6 Iron Man edition. One of the few places where red is the perfect color.
Quantum theory proves consciousness moves to another universe at death. Well, here’s a taste:
But not so long ago, the scientist [Dr. Robert Lanza] became involved with physics, quantum mechanics and astrophysics. This explosive mixture has given birth to the new theory of biocentrism, which the professor has been preaching ever since. Biocentrism teaches that life and consciousness are fundamental to the universe. It is consciousness that creates the material universe, not the other way around.
So basically, he's discovered the Force:
