Big Blue Nation Linkapalooza: Post-Christmas Edition

Rajon Rondo looked very much like the best point guard in the NBA yesterday against the Knicks in a losing effort.

We're back now from our long winter's nap over the Christmas holiday. Speaking for myself, I feel rejuvenated after having taken a day and a half away from the computer except to amuse myself with games. Christmas here has been a peaceful, happy time, and I hope it has been for everyone in the Big Blue Nation.

Time to catch up on some comings and goings.

Here’s a great way to support Kentucky and help Special Olympics - vaughtsviews

The Challenge is a partnership between the Red & Blue Review TV Network and Special Olympics Kentucky that gives University of Kentucky and University of Louisville fans the chance to show their support for their team while also supporting Special Olympics. Red and Blue Review hosts Howie Lindsey of the Louisville Sports Report and Darrell Bird of The Cat’s Pause will compete to see whose fan base can raise the most money in support of them participating in the Lexington Polar Plunge on Saturday, Feb. 18, at Texas Roadhouse in Lexington.

This looks like a great opportunity to participate in a very worthy cause, the Special Olympics.

Xavier ‘really needed’ Sunday’s win (that’s an understatement) - Beyond the Arc

That gust of wind you felt Sunday afternoon? That was Xavier, breathing a massive sigh of relief.

Boy, no kidding they needed that. The Musketeers, by the time the polls come out today, will most likely find themselves on the outside looking in. The season that looked so promising two weeks ago was completely derailed by the brawl with Cincinnati and the ensuing suspensions.


Kentucky, Louisville Getting it Done in the Classroom

2.7 isn't horrible, but it isn't impressive, either. Kudos to the Louisville Cardinals for their outstanding effort.

Which high-profile teams should start sweating at-large bids? - Beyond the Arc

Ole Miss and Vandy could really use victories in their next two games, but both are on the road against teams that look better than them. If they lose, their noncon season could be essentially a bust, and they'll have to do it in the conference.

ANIMATED: Rajon Rondo Can Be Hurt By Elbows To The Head Like The Rest Of Us - SBNation.com

This was actually quite a scary moment in this game. Rondo was very uncoordinated when he got up, and "uncoordinated" and "Rondo" are words that rarely are uttered in the same sentence.


On this Christmas, we take an in-depth look at UK's own miracle

"Somebody said coming out, ‘We are either the smartest or the dumbest coaching staff,’" Phillips said afterwards, sporting the wry smile of someone having effectively drawn to an inside straight.

Heh. Indeed.

Jim Calhoun's three-game suspension starts next Wednesday- The Register Citizen

Calhoun won’t even be allowed to preside over practices over that span. Last year, Tennessee’s Bruce Pearl was suspended for his team’s first eight Southeastern Conference games for lying to the NCAA. But he was allowed to coach the team during practices during that time, and even coached a non-conference game — against UConn, ironically enough — in the middle of it.

The difference?

"Call Indianapolis," Calhoun suggested to a reporter after the Huskies’ 79-71 win over Fairfield on Thursday.

I am starting to really dislike Jim Calhoun a lot.


BCS title game lacks one SEC touch: referees - The Tennessean

The BCS championship game will have all the elements of an SEC game -- two league teams playing in SEC country in New Orleans in front of a raucous SEC crowd with all day to "prepare" for the game.

It's all-SEC everywhere -- except for the guys in stripes.
