gameday texts: Wildcat edition

I promised you more hoop in the aftermath of last night's win over Kentucky ... and instead I'm punking out by giving you a compilation of the best text messages from yesterday afternoon. One programming note: You may notice the list is completely absent of von Herrmann texts — that's because he was sitting next to me. As always, feel free to chime in with your own texts, either here in the comments or by finding me on Twitter.

Halcombe (3:01 p.m.): Okay, it's what like Jan. 18 and they're still airing College Football Live? Really? Jesse Palmer doesn't have a D-list celebrity golf tourney to play poorly in?
Halcombe (4:43 p.m.): Announcer for ESPN college hoops coverage pronounced peanut butter cup sponsor as "Racists." I can't speak to Reese's feeling as it is I don't know their race.
Halcombe (5:05 p.m.): If "ankle, ankle, knee" was applied to Jordan, Pippen and Rodman, or Magic, Worthy and Jabbar, would they receive same notice as Heat trio of Owies?

Stacey (6:57 p.m.): Roll Tide. I love you.

Whit (8:10 p.m.): Pretty sure John Masingill is still on the front row of the student group tonight ...
Maguire (8:37 p.m.): Is it me, or do the UK players seem to not respect Calipari very much?
Rob (8:52 p.m.): I like that we actually play defense. When do we fold? I am guessing with 5 to go.
Zach (8:53 p.m.): Sounds like you're winning.
Zach (8:55 p.m.): Or radio guy is just giddy.
Zach (8:58 p.m.): Easy win on Saturday.

(This, by the way, was the halftime show that had everybody talking.)

Whit (8:59 p.m.): Well that's talent.
Dad (8:59 p.m.): You can do that.
Rob (9:00 p.m.): Yeah but that's awesome!

Whit (9:08 p.m.): We ain't white, we ain't white, we definitely ain't white!
Audra (9:12 p.m.): What's up with Bama leading Kentucky?
Audra (9:17 p.m.): Them blue boys is rattled — it's over from where I sit.
Maguire (9:28 p.m.): I sure hope so.
Rob (9:29 p.m.): When Hillman makes any shot besides a dunk or layup it's your night.
Audra (9:29 p.m.): Crowd is too pumped, they are in the minds of Kentucky — it's over.

Whit (9:38 p.m.): So at what time left in game does UK take lead?
Maguire (9:45 p.m.): Geez. I'm going to take Jamychal's wallet from him tomorrow. Should be easy.
Audra (9:47 p.m.): Well damn — the crowd just quit on them, that sucks.

Jamie (9:57 p.m.): Coach Cal may have just lost his team.
Maguire (10:06 p.m.): Somebody said, "That's an interesting scenario." And Mrs. Hillman said, "That's what I'm gonna name my boy." But she misspelled it.

Rob (10:07 p.m.): Put the 7-footer on the inbounder.

Jamie (10:08 p.m.): Nice W.
Rob (10:08 p.m.): It counts.
Whit (10:09 p.m.): We almost beat the hell outta you.
Jamie (10:09 p.m.): W=W.
Maguire (10:09 p.m.): How about that?! Roll Tide!

Jamie (10:10 p.m.): Do only the ugliest 10% of fans go to bball games?
Zach (10:38 p.m.): Wow. Turned out to be a close one huh. Good win.
