Jerry Tipton has officially lost his mind


http://www.kentucky.com/2011/01/09/1591924/uk-notebook-a-few-questions-about.html#

In his Sunday UK notebook, Jerry Tipton devotes half of his article raving about a story posted on.....wait for it.....The Bleacher Report. That's right,  Jerry Tipton quotes the website that I have trademarked as the armpit of the Internet. Lets see:

The NCAA ruling on Enes Kanter was not the only bit of negativity to rain down on Kentucky on Friday.

UK figured prominently in the Web site Bleacher Report's listing of the 25 "sketchiest" programs in college basketball. Writer Luke Dykes ranked Kentucky No. 3 in his top 25 behind No. 2 Michigan and No. 1 Baylor.

"The Kentucky Wildcats have a rap sheet almost as prolific as their successes ...," Dykes wrote. "It all started under Adolph Rupp."

Dykes noted the point-shaving scandal of the late 1940s and early 1950s, the NCAA ordering UK not to play in the 1952-53 season, the public reprimand for failing to launch a serious investigation of the program in the 1980s and the $1,000 sent to the father of recruit Chris Mills in the Emery Air Freight envelop that forced the resignation of Eddie Sutton and his coaching staff later that decade.

"There haven't been any other sanctions on Kentucky since then, but the hiring of John Calipari has me sitting on the edge of my seat," Dykes wrote. "With his record, it may not be long before something happens in Lexington. Technically, none of the things he's done in the past have been his fault, but lots of things have gone on under his watch, so it wouldn't surprise me if something else did."

Who is this bastion of journalism Luke Dykes you may ask? A sophomore at UNC. Jerry Tipton, your hate for UK knows no bounds.
