Mike Hicks and Aaron Newton fresh off the Bahamas Trip discuss quarterbacks, freshmen and wins and losses on the football schedule.
Things are taking shape nicely with the overall plan for the New Commonwealth Stadium and 2015 reseating. Check out the virtual tour and cool graphics here.
Jeanine (on the left) sent us a classic Kentucky Crazy picture and a brief story behind the picture. She lives in Holland, Michigan but is from Kentucky.
Here is what she sent us:
“Got Invisalign in February and developed an allergy. When given sheet with retainer style options. University of Michigan and Michigan State were choices of styles. When I asked about Kentucky one, it was available. My finished one looks cooler than ones I had seen before. Go Cats!”
Many of you may not know that Trey Lyles dad, T. Lyles, or Thomas Lyles, has a singing background. And he’s actually pretty good.
He just released a new song entitled, “BBN”, and it’s now available for purchase to the Big Blue Planet. Check it out on CDBaby by clicking here.
Cal had just been on sports talk show on WFAN in New York hosted by his long time friend Mike Francesa. After leaving, Mike questions Coach Cal and his ability to be an “X and O” guy on the court.
Calipari decided to do his best “Bob from Jamestown” and call the show and give it right back to Mike. Here is the hilarious clip of Cal calling in!
Keith Bogans makes his way into the Kentucky Athletics Hall of Fame along with Pat Etcheberry, (track and field), Marty Moore (football), Passion Richardson track and field), Terry Shumpert (baseball) and Sarah Witten (women’s tennis).
Bogans career rankings are as follows:
Total points: 4th all-time behind Issel, Walker, and Jack Givens with 1923 total career points.
Assists: 14th all-time
Steals: 12th all-time
Free throws made: 15th all-time
3 pointers made in a career: 2nd all-time behind Tony Delk
Bogans was part of the Tubby Smith coached 2003 team that won 26 straight including a perfect run through the SEC regular season and SEC tourney.
Here is the game that turned that season around. Bogans injured his ankle before the elite 8 game and his injury along with a Dwayne Wade-Marquette team kept the Cats and Bogans from a final 4 and a possible national title. The second half of this game is truly amazing in terms of defensive pressure and was a defining moment in that historic run by the Cats.
The 2014 Clinic Information has been released. Here is some information from UKAthletics.com.
“The 2014 John Calipari Coaches’ Clinic has been set for Oct. 25 from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. at the Joe Craft Center. Last year’s clinic was sold out, so early registration is encouraged to reserve a spot.”
“The day-long event, intended for male and female coaches, gives a unique look into the coaching philosophies and strategies that Coach Cal uses in guiding the eight-time national championship basketball program at Kentucky. Included in this year’s clinic will be a chance to tour the Joe Craft Center and the training facilities used by the Wildcats, with staff members available to answer questions.”
