The Big Blue Daily Mail -- 2010 SEC Tournament Opening Round Edition

There was just so much stuff I had to get a post out early today.  There will likely be a PM edition of the BBDM today.

  • Vols’ Chism evaluates Cousins’ play | Vaught's Views
  • One irritating moment - Beyond the Arc - msnbc.com
    Preach, Brother Miller. I hate that song.

  • Cats lose first home game | courier-journal.com | The Courier-Journal
  • No asterisks of infamy for Jayhawks | KUsports.com

    This Mayer fellow is shameless. He never tires of taking shots at every program under the sun and pumping up KU, always acting as if KU has been a good NCAA citizen. It hasn't, but this guy apparently has selective memory loss.  The highbrow pomposity of Mayer is actually breathtaking.

    The fact of the matter is, the Kansas Jayhawks are the most penalized NCAA institution in Division I college basketball.  Mayer does get around to alluding to Kansas' NCAA difficulties at the very end, but declines to specify.  Instead, he confines his comments to teams who have had the "asterisk" by them, as though its okay to implicate all these other programs as somehow inferior to KU despite KU's record of NCAA lawlessness.

    Of course, Mayer reserves special vitriol for UK, singling the NCAA out as "gutless" for not vacating wins for the point-shaving scandals.  You will rarely see a more sneering, pharisaical, sanctimonious screed than this.  I'm not proud of UK's scofflaw past, but at least I'm not trying to score points off everyone else in a paroxysm of unctuous elitism.

More after the jump.
