Now the Dirty Birds are in the ACC, too? Wow, I hate that league.
Good for Joker. Good for the seniors.
Poythress and Wiltjer combined for 45 points in the win.
Will they hire an experienced or an up-and-coming head coach?
The announcement follows Saturday’s 40 point blow out against Vanderbilt.
Nerlens Noel finished with 17 points and 11 rebounds in the win.
It’s almost as if mother nature couldn’t stand to watch anymore when the game was finally called due to inclement weather. Rain and lightning overshadowed last night’s game and delayed play twice. The first rain delay occurred with 3:32 left in the first quarter and lasted for about an hour. The second delay was instituted [...]
With the commitment of James Young today and the Harrison twins last week, Coach John Calipari has now locked up 3 of ESPN’s top 5 players in the 2013 recruiting class with the potential of landing another in 6’9” forward Julius Randle. Just when you thought Cal had hit his ceiling, he raises the bar [...]
When it rains it pours for University of Kentucky football. Running back CoShik Williams is out for the rest of his 5th-year senior season thus ending his college career. Coach Joker Phillips announced the news today to the press and stated that an MRI revealed a torn labrum in his hip. It’s a depressing ending [...]
There is no way to sugar coat it, but the Kentucky Wildcat’s 2012 football season is looking unsalvageable after the manhandling by the Florida Gators yesterday. The offense took the weekend off in a thirty-eight to nothing rout led by second string quarter back Morgan Newton. Maxwell Smith sat for the entirety of the game [...]
It was another bad year at the Swamp. Maxwell Smith led a scoreless football squad today in Gainesville against a Florida Gators team that started off slow but then took off. Starting quarterback Morgan Newton sat out with a shoulder injury. Smith struggled the entire game managing only 48 passing yards and throwing three interceptions. [...]
Citing health reasons, Billy Gillispie informed Texas Tech Athletic Director Kirby Hocutt that he will not return as head coach of the Red Raiders basketball program for the upcoming season.

Tuesday morning, Coach John Calipari introduced Coach Joe B. Hall and his 400-pound bronze counterpart in front of Wildcat Coal Lodge. Coach Hall offered his sincere thanks to the attendees along with his usual good natured humor. “The pigeons will appreciate it,” Hall joked during his speech. Coach Calipari gave credit to Coach Hall for [...]
Deadspin is reporting that an unnamed source has indicated Texas Tech will fire Billy Gillispie upon return from sick leave. The university is barred under the Family and Medical Leave Act from letting him go until his return. Gillispie was checked into the University Medical Center in Lubbock, TX last week after calling 911 for experiencing heart attack-like [...]
When you hear the news coming out of Lubbock, Texas it feels like a real-life version of Groundhog Day except with Billy Gillispie instead of Bill Murray. The ex-Kentucky coach is on the hot seat again three years after being run out of Lexington (literally if you count the chasing incident with Alan Cutler). On Wednesday, Texas Tech [...]
There’s no denying that there is fan pressure on Coach Joker Phillips going into this season. After two seasons Joker has an overall record of 11-14 and only four wins in the SEC. Fan criticism reached its peak last season when the Wildcats failed to achieve bowl eligibility after 5 straight years of playing in bowl games. [...]
While often overlooked, the special teams unit is an important part of any football team, and it does win games. UK’s special teams unit, or “special forces” as Coach Joker Phillips likes to call it, is coming off a rough season from last year. The 2011 Cats were second to last in the SEC in [...]
Kentucky’s running backs are arguably the highlight of the team going into this season. The Wildcats ended the 2011 season battered and bruised at this position with two of its players’ seasons cut short which required the coaching staff to improvise to fill the positions. This season the team’s bench offers some depth from which the coaching [...]
Thanks a lot to the Kentucky Wildcats and the Miami Heat. You killed basketball. So say the Chicken Littles, or more accurately put, the bitter and envious. I suppose it’s only fitting that the most vilified teams in basketball also won the highest prizes of their respective leagues in the same year. Indeed, both teams [...]
