I’m sure you’ve all noticed that the new poll is out and sure enough, right there hanging around the bottom having received 3 points is an 18-11 Kentucky Wildcat squad.
This morning, between
work smoke breaks and work NASCAR news, we thought we’d take the time to investigate for you where those 3 points came from… which guys are liking what they’re seeing out of the old Blue ‘n White?
Well, as it turns out, its only one dude, Dick Weiss (ballot here), and he voted the Cats #23 (which is 3 points). Dick, among other things, is a basketball blogger for the New York Daily News. From his bio:
Dick Weiss – better known as “Hoops” – has been covering college basketball for 40 years, and since 1993 for the NYDN. He is a past president of the College Football and Basketball Writers’ Associations and is a member of the USBWA college basketball writers’ Hall of Fame.
Well hell, he’s a freakin’ hall of famer! And look at that hairpiece man! No wonder he ended up nicknamed “Hoops.”
After a bit more research I was able to come across gems such as these on his blog:
We don’t want to get ahead of ourselves, but we think Kevin Willard of Iona is destined to be a hot commodity by this time next year.
Holy crap, a Yankee John Clay!
Okay folks, enough is enough. In all sincerity, Kentucky fan, send your cards, letters, flowers and candy to: NY Daily News c/o “Hoops” Weiss, 450 W 33rd St, New York, NY 10001.
And I’ll send mine to the 2 Pulitzer Prize winners who voted the Vols at #1: Brett Jensen from CUTigers.com and Dan Wolken at the Memphis Commercial Appeal. What’s that? They don’t have Pulitzers? Well they should. Matter of fact, get one for Fran Fraschilla too!
