I hope everyone is enjoying these last few days of Christmas shopping, as I am just starting my holiday shopping today. In one of today’s important headlines, our own James Streble and his wife were blessed with a newborn son, Kellan. Congratulations to them and we wish them and their son the best.
According to John Clay, Terrence Jones will not play tomorrow against Loyola-Maryland. Jones did not practice with the team today. According to Calipari, Jones wanted to practice but Calipari recommended that he sit out to rest and risk further injury to his dislocated finger. As long as Jones is healthy for the Louisville game, that is all that matters to me.
Also, Joker Phillips held a teleconference today in which he talked about a few offseason moves. He announced that freshman cornerback Dale Trimble is no longer with the team. Phillips also mentioned that quarterback Morgan Newton will not able to compete until May or June, leaving Max Smith and incoming freshman Patrick Towles to compete for the starting spot.
