Mark Stoops' recruits have had a very large role in the success, as little as it is, that the Wildcats have enjoyed so far:
After his his arrival on Nov. 27, 2013, Stoops and his coaching staff didn’t take long to add their first big-name recruit, landing junior college defensive end Za’Darius Smith. Smith, a second-team All-American at the junior college level last season, already has 4.5 sacks this season.

Missed this yesterday. Soccer drops a game to Xavier up in the Queen City.
Garnet and Black Attack laments the early fan exodus. UK had the same problem in the Louisville game, and it seems to be a troubling tend.
Succession planning at Texas. I suspect we all knew it would come to this. I think this makes a lot of sense, actually.
Tennessee unveils new uniforms for 2013-14. Unfortunately, there is no way to make that ugly orange look good.
Kevin Ware dunking again. Good for him.
