It’s not often that we transition from bad news about basketball to good news about football, but hey I’ll take it.

Mark Stoops gave his thoughts on the new renovations that will be made to Commonwealth Stadium:

It’s exciting. It is going to have a great impact on our program. It is an exciting time for all of the Big Blue Nation. It’s an exciting time for the fans, for the students and for our players. It shows the commitment that we have here to the football program and to the fans. It is going to be an exciting time.

Stoops also commented on the big groups of recruits that he had visiting yesterday:

Things are going well. We have a big group here today. It’s been a great response, and I have been very excited about the way recruiting is going and I feel very good about putting this class together.

And why shouldn’t Stoops feel good? In the last week he has nabbed three big recruits. Cornerback Jaleel Hytchye, lineman Lovell Peterson and lineman Kyle Meadows have all committed to Kentucky this week. I’m sure next week will be just as exciting.

As Demarcus Cousins struggles with personal issues in Sacramento and as his team struggles to actually stay in Sacramento, the Boston Celtics do not look to have the pieces to pull off a trade for Boogie, something they have shown considerable interest in.

This saddens me as I am a huge Celtics fan and a huge Cousins fan. I think he needs a change of scenery and a tough veteran like Kevin Garnnett to show him how to be a pro. These trades have been called dead in the water before only to happen later. We shall see what happens.

And in more bad news for NBA Cats, Doron Lamb has been sent to the D-League by the Milawaukee Bucks. Lamb will play for the Fort Wayne Mad Ants (yes, that’s really the team name).

He has played in 23 games for the Bucks thus far and has averaged 3.4 points and 12.2 minutes per game. I wonder how many points he would be averaging for Kentucky this season?
