It's no secret that I'm a big college basketball fan...much more so than the NBA. Although the NBA does get points in my book for giving me basketball in June. So, yeah I'm a basketball guy. But I'm also a big fan of college football.
First, let me say that I am not putting the cart before the horse and discounting UK's upcoming 2015 football season. I think those Wildcats are a post-season team and I can't wait until the games start.
Earlier this year, I was listening to a talk show on which UK head coach John Calipari was the guest. What he said about the goal he spelled out for the 'Cats at the beginning of last season seemed to be something that Big Blue Nation could take the wrong way. Maybe.
With Kentucky returning Tyler Ulis, Alex Poythress, and Marcus Lee plus adding über-talented incoming freshmen Skal Labissiere, Isaiah Briscoe, and Charles Matthews, the Wildcats were tabbed as a super-early pre-season #1.
Love her or hate her, Ashley Judd is no Bandwagon Billy. She bleeds blue and isn't afraid to share her love for all things Wildcats. Recently, she came across an interesting find in Gatlinburg, TN. It's pretty hilarious. We think she's absolutely off her rocker but she does say it's all in lighthearted fun. Check it out.
It's always a blast when any team's walk-ons get a chance to see some action. At UK, it seems the fans save their loudest roars for those occasions, like when senior Sam Malone--with that trademark headband--would hit the floor.
The Harrisons twins declared Wednesday afternoon. Dakari Johnson did it Wednesday night. The other four--Willie Cauley-Stein, Trey Lyles, Devin Booker, and Karl-Anthony Towns joined those three for a press conference Thursday afternoon to make the announcement that they are all leaving.
