Heh. Love this tweet.
Larry Warford is a Lion, picked early in the third round. Congratulations to him and to Detroit. He gets to practice against Ndamukong Suh. That should be interesting. Pride of Detroit
Mark Stoops has done a remarkable job so far. I agree with the author that Kentucky football fans are hungry for a winner, even a modest winner. Most of all, what we want is to see just how far this program can go when properly led and recruited. KKy Cat Stats

Calipari thinks Courier-Journalis a good fit, and the feeling is mutual. You know how this usually ends, right?
