Future of Kentucky Basketball looks bright!
Will Cal coach the Dominican team?
Harrellson was a catalyst against the Vols and has been suprising people all season.
After sluggish first half, Kentucky rolls past Boston, 91-57
We have had just a few opportunities to see the make-up of this years Kentucky basketball team. That is this year’s team minus one BIG factor. That factor would be freshmen Turkish sensation Enes Kanter. At least we are assuming he is going to be a sensation. There has been much speculation as to whether [...]
The annual Blue and White scrimmage kicked off tonight at Rupp Arena. It wasn’t a packed house, as a matter of fact the entire upper bowl looked pretty bleak but the atmosphere was still there with only 11,391 people in attendance. This was the first good look that John Calipari got at his team since [...]
The second edition of Rick Pitino vs. John Calipari Dream Game will take place on New Year’s Eve 2010. The date was announced as part of Kentucky releasing it’s full basketball schedule. The game is slated to begin at noon on December 31, which is a Friday. I must say, I’m not thrilled with the [...]
In his session with the media today ahead of tomorrow’s game against Austin Peay, John Calipari addressed the quote from Bobby Knight that has been swirling around the collective sports consciousness since last night. No surprise here, but Calipari addressed the remarks quickly without trying to pick a fight, then requested that the subject of [...]
When I originally saw this yesterday evening, I had no intention of giving it the time of day here on the Pinkie, but, lo and behold, it’s been spreading like wildfire, even making the front page of ESPN, so I figure it at least merits a mention. Bobby Knight, at a fundraiser for the Indiana [...]
My off the wall theory about John Calipari taking over the John Wall/LeBron James-led New Jersey Nets has gotten a fair amount of attention in the last day. It was talked about all day on the Cats Pause and a few other message boards, including the Memphis Roar, where it was met with hysterical laughter [...]
It’s only been four days since the last UK game, and I’m already slipping into minor withdrawal. That’s great that the student-athletes get time off for finals and everything, but there are collateral consequences for us obsessed fans. Anyway, since there’s no writing to be done about actual game action, I had to find something [...]
Basketball season is upon us. We are in the middle of our Big East and SEC previews. The SEC West was up first, the first half of the Big East will come on Wednesday, the SEC East will be on Thursday, and the second half of the Big East on Friday. However, I’m not slated [...]
A bit of a Flight of the Conchords feel on the Pinkie the past couple days, huh? All joking aside though, since the Campbellsville game, I think everybody around the Kentucky program, from Coach Cal all the way down to the guys who still call into radio shows, has realized that the omnipresent buzz around [...]
Nick was in Rupp Wednesday night for the Blue-White Scrimmage, but I have a few things to say about the action. We’ll do this in note form since I am having some internet troubles. -The teams tonight were not very fair, but that was not the idea. The game opened with the projected starters (Wall, [...]
Marlen Garcia of USA Today spoke with John Wall, and for the first time, he commented directly on the questions and investigation surrounding his college eligibility: LEXINGTON, Ky. — Kentucky freshman point guard John Wall said Tuesday that he has been waiting for five months for the NCAA to decide whether he is eligible to [...]
As we come upon the Blue-White Game tomorrow, the black cloud of the John Wall eligibility investigation still hangs over all of our heads. For the first time, a Kentucky official is acknowledging the issue, albeit indirectly, to everybody’s favorite UK writer Jerry Tipton. I still don’t believe there is any reason to fear for [...]
This is from Jeff Goodman’s blog on Foxports.com. Some really interesting stuff about a couple of UK’s heralded freshmen: I just found out the Preseason AP Poll will be released on Thursday. Kansas will be the clear-cut No. 1 team in the land, but it’ll be interesting to see who gets the nod at No. [...]
OK, so yesterday I introduced our series outlooks for each player on Kentucky’s roster with a breakdown of Mark Krebs’ upcoming season…and the few of you who read it made fun of me for being able to write 800 words about Mark Krebs. Reading it a second time, I realized that, yeah, it is kind [...]
As part of our coverage leading up to UK’s tipoff of the highly anticipated 2009-2010, we are beginning a series of outlooks for each of the players on this year’s roster. In this previews, we will give a short bio on each player, a quick look at the projected role for each, and a prediction [...]
Jeff Goodman of FoxSports.com is reporting that he expects Kentucky phenom John Wall to be cleared for Kentucky’s season opener on November 13 against Morehead State. I’m not breathing a sigh of relief yet, but I am definitely more relaxed that I was about 18 hours ago. We’ll keep you updated, hopefully with more good [...]
