Lunch Time Links?

It’s lunch. I have 20 minutes to eat and try to put out a post. Let’s see what’s hot from this mornings read. Lunch time links below. Enjoy…

Paul Jordan of “Wildcat Blue Blog” discusses John Wall and his influence or possible influence on the recruiting trail in North Carolina. Paul stated “Wall is currently recruiting his former Word of God Academy teammate C.J. Leslie to come to Kentucky for the 2010 class. And if that is not enough, he is also former AAU team mates with Quincy Miller and Deuce Bello. Miller is already considered a Kentucky lean, thanks in part to Walls efforts. He has been seen frequently sporting UK gear and was a visitor at the UK/UNC game in which he openly cheered for Wall and the Wildcats”. UKBBN provided an update on C.J. Leslie in our earlier blog entitled “Time to Reload?”

John Clay of “Sidelines” give his thoughts and links on the upcoming Kentucky rematch against South Carolina. In the article, Jerry Tipton of the Herald-Leader writes on Devan Downey: ” After leading South Carolina to an unprecedented three straight victories over Kentucky, Devan Downey has a good idea of the bad reception he’ll receive in Rupp Arena on Thursday night. ‘I’m pretty sure I’m going to get a not-too-warm welcome,’ he said with comedic understatement on Tuesday. ‘I know it’s all in fun. But I’ve gotten my share of hate mail and Facebook messages from Kentucky fans.’” UKBBN Comments: In the first meeting, Downey went 9-29 and ripped the Cats for 30 total points in the only UK loss of the season. In fact, Kentucky has lost there last three against South Carolina where Downey hung 23, 21 and 30 on the Cats. Expect a UK blowout this time at Rupp as Kentucky will be looking for revenge and there 44th SEC Regular Season Championship.

The Big Blue Booyah brings us the “On This Day in UK History report. ON this day, February 24, 1980, your #3 University of Kentucky Wildcats dramatically took out #5 LSU, 76-74 in overtime, as all-timer Kyle Macy hit a jumper as time expired. Macy, who was just 3-13 before the last shot, came through in the clutch with the final dagger. The point guard extraordinaire played the entire 45 minutes, finishing with 11 points – 5 rebounds – 8 assists. He also had the nerve to miss two free throws. UKBBN Comments: Point guard Kyle Macy scored 1,411 points in his career, one where he only played for three years. And he made 331 of 372 free throw attempts for a career unbelievable  88.9%. Kyle was named first team All-American in the 1979-80 season. Kyle is 24th on the career scoring list at UK.

Big Blue Bill at Aaron’s UK Football Blog talks a little football, specifically the offensive side. Big Blue says “Just as with the Defensive side of the ball, the offensive side of the Wildcat team also has a list of questions going into Spring Practice. There are 4 Questions going into Spring Practice in regards to the offensive side of the ball. This post will deal only with the QB situation due to its importance and the dynamics involved for the ’10 season 1. The Quarterback situation. Who will emerge? Mike Hartline the “game manager”, Morgan Newton the returning sophomore to be who started after the South Carolina game last year, or Ryan Mossakowski the sophomore to be who is recovering from shoulder surgery?” UKBBN Comments: Our money for the QB to eventually head the Cats next year is the Red Shirt Freshmen Ryan Mossakowski.

I’m gone… Enjoy the reads… Go Cats!!
