Andrew & Aaron Harrison: 19 assists, 2 turnovers combined in the McDonald's & Jordan Classic All-Star games.— UK Recruiting (@WildcatRecruits) April 15, 2013
That's getting it done.
So, let me get this straight – Kentucky football fans outnumbered the Texas A&M; Aggies, home of the reigning Heisman Trophy winner, by over 5,000 souls? And their attendance was a school record?
Looks like not everything is bigger in Texas … (via Hank)
Here’s an analysis by a Card and Cat fan of both spring games. So far, it is the best I’ve read anywhere. Since I haven’t been able to see the game, I can’t comment on the value of his analysis. This could be the basis for a good discussion, though. (Hank)
Whitlow made a strong case. He looked very good out there, significantly better than either Maxwell Smith and Patrick Towles.
Those two worthies have quite a bit to make up when summer practice starts. For my money, Whitlow should be the starter if we judge only from this game. In the parlance of horse racing, he was "Much the best."
ZaDarius Smith is a keeper – and a beast.
Heard gives us a lot more than depth. I’d peg him as the likely starter at running back next year. Dyshawn Mobley and Justin Taylor need to raise their game.
Let’s hope for some good news.
I promise you we’ll be third after Alabama’s spring game, but it’s darned impressive to beat out programs like Texas, Georgia, Ohio St., and Oklahoma, among others.
This is especially impressive considering Kentucky is coming off a 2-win season, and our prospects for this year aren’t exactly scaring anyone in the SEC, or even elsewhere.
This guy is completely clueless. The “rumors” are nonsense, and he has no idea what he’s talking about. If he winds up being right, it will be an accident.
The diamond has been unkind to the Wildcats this past week.
Struggling starting pitching and untimely hitting doomed UK baseball to its first home series loss, against Tennessee at Cliff Hagan Stadium.
Well, this is just … bad.

Louisville is already reaping the rewards of their Spring Game which had roughly 33,000 attend for the $1 beer. We’ll see this week what rewards UK get from our attendance. UK, to my knowledge, was not recruiting either one of these two players. (Hank)
Here’s how Auburn escapes. Miami shoulda done this. (Hank)
Since UCLA hired Steve Alford nearly two weeks ago, critics have come out in force against the hiring and Alford in general.
One dark spot that has continually come up is his handling of a sexual assault case involving starting guard Pierre Pierce while coaching the Iowa men’s basketball team.
Nice start for Alford at UCLA. (Hank)
The title is bullcrap. If she wants to play in the NBA, let her make a roster. If she wants to enter the NBA draft, fine, but don’t complain if nobody takes her, or if they take her for a marketing ploy.
If she’s good enough, I’m sure the NBA would be happy to have her – big bucks for them, you know, and that’s what the league is all about.
I don’t know what the players think, and if she’s good enough, fine. But she doesn’t "deserve" anything but the same opportunity everyone else gets.
Probably a good idea.
Congratulations to Adam Scott. I love his golf swing. For the first time in years, I missed the Masters, and only got to see the playoff.
Facing the Houston Rockets Sunday, Sacramento Kings center DeMarcus Cousins collected his 16th technical foul, and if it stands, he will be suspended for Monday night’s game against the Oklahoma City Thunder due to league rules.
I’d say that’s a problem. Via Aaron’s blog.
Former University of Kentucky standout DeAndre Liggins scored 20 of his game-high 24 points in the second half, including going 5-for-5 from three-point range, to lead the Tulsa 66ers past the Canton Charge 100-98 on Sunday in the NBA D-League playoffs.
DeAndre wants to get back to the Thunder, and he’s making his Case. Via Aaron’s blog
Former University of Kentucky star Terrence Jones blocked five shots, the most by a Houston Rockets player this season with two games to go, in a 121-100 rout of the visiting Sacramento Kings on Sunday night.
Good to see Terrence Jones playing well.
You know, something about me hates a person who calls in to snitch on someone like this. It’s probably wrong, I know, but …
For those of you who, like me, have been enjoying personal digital computers since their inception, this will be very good news.
