The McDonald's All-American game was a success for all four (Did I say four? Yes, I did!) Kentucky players who participated in the game, although some thought more of their effort than others, and some (namely Michael Gilchrist) don't want to talk about it, even though he shared the award for the most outstanding player.
There is stuff about Coach Cal, stuff about the McD's, stuff about Josh Harrellson and other stuff. So lets get right to it:

A very creative if cynical and somewhat slanderous treatment of Coach Cal. I would love to respond, but frankly, we have bigger fish to fry right now. Eyes on the prize. Still, if you liked Orson Swindle (and I know I did when he was writing like this about other programs), this is classic.

Bwahahaha! Sticking it to Kansas is something I plan to do a bit of later this year, no matter how the Final Four works out. This is a good warmup.

The player Harrellson is today has pushed his way into the middle to early second round on the 2011 NBA draft projection boards of some teams. One scout told me Wednesday that if Harrellson performs well on the NBA psychological tests after the season, he could creep into the bottom of the first round because of his blocky 6-foot-10, 265-pound body.
Well, I guess that answers the question someone posed earlier.
NCAA president Mark Emmert acknowledged Thursday that he received threats from Kentucky fans after freshman Enes Kanter was ruled permanently ineligible in early January.
Incidents like this are what give us all a bad name. Unacceptable. I hope the FBI locates and arrests every one of them.

Outlook: The power forward spot is the first position where there are clear mismatches for the two best players. Terrence Jones and Matt Howard are just that much better than anyone that VCU or UConn can put on them.
