Kentucky picked up a new 2017 commitment from Florida cornerback Michael Nesbitt out of Fort Lauderdale. Nesbitt announced the news via Twitter on Thursday night, saying: "As everyone know, it's not an easy decision, but with that being said, I'll be committing to Kentucky."
Doubts abound about the Kentucky defensive line this season with its mostly unproven starters and mostly untested depth. But the junior college coach of at least two of those potential playmakers has no doubt about one thing: Both Alvonte Bell and Courtney Miggins are willing to work hard.
If he wasn't so comfortable in his own pads, Derrick Baity might have gotten a complex by now. The sophomore cornerback had the misfortune of coming to Kentucky at the same time as All-Freshman Everything Chris Westry. Freshman of the Week, All-Freshman Southeastern Conference Team, preseason lists and postseason awards?
The Brooklyn Botanic Garden has embarked on a $17.2 million overhaul intended to slash consumption and waste of one of the garden's most critical resources: water. Each year, the botanic garden uses about 22 million gallons of water to fill a 1-acre pool in its Japanese Hill-and-Pond Garden.
▪ Stressing consistency: After Saturday's scrimmage, offensive coordinator Eddie Gran was displeased with things he saw from the first team offense. That was mostly an issue on third down. "We didn't throw and catch on third down, bottom line," he said, noting it was identical plays, identical throws and poor execution.
About a year ago, Jon Toth was on the phone with his mom grumbling about the difficulties of carrying a full course load in mechanical engineering and balancing it with football. Being the calculating, measured sort, Kentucky's starting center should've known better than to complain to her. "Jonathan, really?"
When coaches said they were planning to mix and match on defense this season after injuries and defections, they weren't kidding. Multiple schemes, multiple players, multiple positions. "We're going to be three down and we'll get in four-down fronts as well," Stoops said after an open practice for the media on Monday morning.
Ask Eddie Gran how he's going to manage Kentucky's running back rotation and he shrugs. "Well, we'll see," the new UK offensive coordinator said after the Cats' first scrimmage of fall camp. It's an interesting question for Gran, who will be charged with the gargantuan task of managing a room full of veteran playmakers like Boom Williams, Jojo Kemp and Mikel Horton, who all expect to get carries.
The first time little De'Niro Laster was hit hard in a football practice, he stayed down on the ground crying. His father, a former player at Grambling State, had encouraged his middle child to take up football because he thought he was a touch soft.
Mark Stoops is glad that there's never a situation where his entire second team defense would have to play together. There would be too many holes and too many issues. There certainly were when the second string played all together at the closed scrimmage at Commonwealth Stadium on Saturday.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. David Pogue)
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both politicians Barack Obama and Mitt Romney by
searching Obama AND Romney or Obama +Romney.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used.) For example, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
