Sunday catch-up: Cobb signs deal, Cowgill's first hit and more

| No Comments | No TrackBacks
Since I've been away from the blogosphere for the last few days, here are a couple of notes to catch you up on what's been happening around the Big Blue Nation:

  • Kentucky football's career touchdown leader has agreed to terms with the Green Bay Packers, according to multiple reports. Cobb, the Packers' second-round pick in the 2011 NFL Draft, will reportedly receive $3.2 million. The deal also calls for an $850,000 signing bonus.

  • Collin Cowgill's first few games in the big leagues haven't gone as well as his time in the minor leagues, but the former UK baseball player finally collected his first hit on Saturday night in a pinch-hit opportunity against the Los Angeles Dodgers. Cowgill is 1 for 12 for the Arizona Diamondbacks since being called up, but I wouldn't expect that trend to last much longer. He was hitting .354 with 13 home runs and 70 RBI in the Pacific Coast League prior to his promotion.

  • Darius Miller has made the first cut for the World University Games, according to Aaron Smith of the Kentucky Kernel. The roster has been trimmed from 21 to 14 with one more cut of two players still to come. Miller will continue training with the team through Aug. 7 at the US. Olympic Training Center in Colorado Springs, Colo., until the official roster is announced prior to the teams' departure for China on Aug. 8. Miller previously plaued with USA Basketball as a member of the USA U19 team that won a gold medal at the 2009 FIBA U19 World Championship in New Zealand.

  • Because I've been moving the past few days, I didn't get a chance to make it out for Josh Harrellson's media opportunity at the Prasco John Calipari ProCamp on Saturday. Fortunately, Brett Dawson of Cats Illustrated recorded video of the interview, which you can watch here.
