The PlayMaker's Favorite, Stevie Johnson...

>> Monday, June 8, 2009



This Playmaker's favorite, Stevie Johnson, received some good publicity following the Bill's recent voluntary workout. Stevie became a fan favorite in the state of Kentucky following his performances versus Louisville and LSU in 2007. It's great seeing him transform himself from a 7th round draft pick to a possible difference maker on the Bills squad.

Again, Lane? Seriously?





This is beginning to become comical. The new Tennessee football coach, Lane Kiffin, has committed another recruiting violation. Are you stupid or something? This is violation number four under Kiffin's watchful eye. This specific infraction consisted of:

A segment of ESPN's "Outside the Lines," which aired Sunday, showed Kiffin in his office with two people identified by the network as recruits.

According to NCAA recruiting rule 13.10.1, "A member institution shall not permit a media entity to be present during any recruiting contact made by an institution's coaching staff member."


While, a minor violation, Kiffin continues to show he learned well from his mentor, Pete Carroll.

I refer you to a former post made here on this blog. The countdown til UT is on probation is still running!

Supplemental Draft huh?...





Former Kentucky defensive end Jeremy Jarmon, who was suspended for next year's college season for testing positive for a banned substance has decided to enter the NFL's supplemental draft which is on July 16th.

Jarmon has not disclosed what the substance was publicly, but did state that he would tell any of the NFL teams that are interested in him what the substance was he had taken.

Jarmon will be having his own pro day at Kentucky on July 9th. Teams will then bid on him and whoever is willing to give up their highest draft pick next year will land Jarmon.

Jarmon may have screwed himself out of millions earlier by partaking in a banned substance, but who knows, if he has a couple of years of productivity, he can still make something of himself in the league someday.

I, like most of America (outside of Lexington), care less about this story, but I know fellow blogger Derrick will be upset when he reads that I beat him to the punch at his own game.
