First Down Kentucky: A Rare Move by Vince Marrow

Kentucky Sports Radio dot com is a visual medium. Before you use your eyeballs to read the rest of this post, do me a favor. I need you to picture Vince Marrow.

What’s the Kentucky associate head coach doing? He’s standing next to a four-star recruit, pointing his finger at the talented player. You’ve seen this image dozens and dozens of times. Even at his own wedding, he was striking the popular pose. This weekend there was a break in The Matrix.

Vince Marrow was photographed without making his signature move. Instead of pointing at his peers, his hand is blurry, evidence of a break in The Matrix.

We can confirm Marrow is still alive and well after enjoying a dinner at the NFL Combine Frank Buffano, Steve Clinkscale, Chris Collins, and CJ Conrad. On Sunday Vince was in Ohio, hearing John Legend serenade his mother for her 70th birthday. Legend is the uncle of Kentucky wide receiver, Anthony Brown-Stephens.

Where Kentucky Ranks in 4-Team CFB Playoff Era

David Hale is stirring the pot this offseason by ranking the 86 teams who spent at least one week ranked by the CFB Playoff Committee during the four-team era. Overall, Kentucky gets a B- grade at No. 35, two spots ahead of Louisville. They are the tenth-ranked SEC team and that does not include the two newcomers, Oklahoma and Texas.

Big Blue has gone to eight straight bowl games under Mark Stoops, which is a huge accomplishment at a place some fools might call a basketball school. The Wildcats have cracked three of the committee’s top 25s in three different seasons, won 10 games twice and annually generate enough buzz before losing to Georgia that people actually get excited for that game.
