Big Blue Nation Linkapalooza: Lazy BCS Sunday Edition

As we all recover from our celebrations of the big weekend Kentucky just experienced, including men's basketball's win over the North Carolina Tar Heels and women's basketball's win over the Louisville Cardinals, football fans are waiting on the final word as to who will be the second participant besides the LSU Tigers in the BCS Championship game.

That and more in this edition of the Linkapalooza.
