KSR Top 10 Tweets of the Day

The one and only Big Mick is a meaty masterpiece in its own right. Composed of two quarter-pound patties* of never-fresh, frozen, mostly beef raised close to the processing plant. Only McDowell’s has the frosted beef and processed cheese to give you a major reason for the afternoon trip to the secret bathroom only you and Debra know about on the 9th floor that is under construction.

You can be a part of McDowell’s KSR Top 10 Tweets by using hashtags like #KSR #BBN or #KSRtop10. You can also nominate tweets by mentioning them with the hashtag. If we like what we see, it could be posted the next day.

Doron Lamb named one of New York City’s best ballers

Doron Lamb is one of the best three-point shooters in Kentucky history. And according to SLAM Magazine, he’s one of the best basketball players in New York City history.

SLAM named the 60 best basketball players to ever come out of the Big Apple today and Doron Lamb made the cut. The players are not ranked, but this is the short snippet about Lamb.

Doron Lamb

Lower East Side native Doron Lamb started his high school career at Bishop Loughlin in Brooklyn. He put up 22 a game as a sophomore, catching the eye of Oak Hill Academy. He left New York to finish high school, finding his way to Kentucky as a collegian. He won a National Championship in 2012.

Now seems like a good time to revisit Lamb’s two years in Lexington. His title game in 2012 is one of the more underrated performances in a big game.

Mitch Barnhart Denies Tennessee’s Involvement With Checkerboard Jerseys

Editor’s Note: The following was written by Harold Leeder, editor-in-chief of The New Circle Circular, Lexington’s #1 source of fake news you can’t count on.

University of Kentucky Athletic Director Mitch Barnhart held a joint press conference with Former President and current Czar of Tennessee Al Gore where Barnhart announced that, despite all of the evidence uncovered by people showing Tennessee with checkerboard uniforms long before UK made the switch, Tennessee had no involvement in the checkerboard uniforms introduced a few years ago.

With the checkerboards being such a bad idea, Tennessee would seem to be an easy scapegoat for the error. However, Mitch and others claim it’s not an error at all, let alone the fault of Tennessee. “I asked Mr. Gore if he tricked us into using the checkerboards so they [UT] wouldn’t look as dumb wearing them and he said they didn’t do it and they’ve never even worn checkerboards,” Barnhart said. “They had nothing to do with the checkerboards, they were all my idea and, frankly, everyone loves them.”

When presented with pictures of Tennessee utilizing the checkerboard design in the past Barnhart simply said: “those aren’t checkerboard, those are chessboard.” Barnhart went on to explain that Chess represented Tennessee because it is a game with a long history and is played by the top minds in the game whereas checkers represented Kentucky because our strategy in football has largely been centered around wildly jumping over people and getting to one end of the field and stacking players on top of one another for some reason.

UK officials were reportedly disturbed to hear Kentucky thrown under the bus but planned to do nothing about it.

Jonny David, Dillon Pulliam honored by NABC

A big congratulations to Jonny David and Dillion Pulliam, who were honored by the National Association of Basketball Coaches for their outstanding academic achievements following the 2017-18 season. The NABC recognizes students who are juniors or seniors (what are those?) with a GPA of 3.2 or higher.

Pulliam left the program this past May to pursue a master’s degree in electrical and computer engineering at Carnegie Mellon. He graduated from UK with a 4.0 GPA and gave up a final year of athletic eligibility to begin the next phase of his education.

David is back this year as the old man on the team. He is a three-time member of the SEC Academic Team and is slated to graduate in May of 2019 with a degree in kinesiology.

Go Cats.

Must-Listen: Oscar Combs’ podcast with John Y. Brown

This morning, Oscar Combs released the latest episode of his podcast, and it’s well worth a few minutes of your time. UK’s premiere basketball historian interviewed the great John Y. Brown, the former governor of Kentucky, Kentucky Fried Chicken entrepreneur, and owner of the Kentucky Colonels, Buffalo Braves, and Boston Celtics.

In part one of the three-part series, the two touched on a variety of topics, including Brown’s college days at UK, how he got Adolph Rupp and Colonel Sanders in the same room, and his decision to get into fried chicken, pro basketball, and politics.

Listen below, and keep an eye on Oscar’s Twitter and website for parts two and three. Based on these teasers from Oscar, you won’t want to miss them:

ESPN E:60 on Jared Lorenzen will air Sunday
