Big Blue Nation Linkapalooza: SEC Schedule Edition

The SEC schedule is finally out, and Kentucky gets to play on national TV 12 times in conference, with only 4 games being on regional television.  That leads the SEC, of course, and no doubt much of the non-conference schedule will be national as well.

I'm sure John Calipari, being the marketing guy he is, can't wait to get started.  For the record, neither can I.

Today's links:

  • Ouch.

    Louisville was eliminated from the list of Texas forward Danuel House, who is now looking at Arizona, Houston, Baylor, Missouri, Georgetown, Texas, Oregon, Kansas, Ohio State and Georgia Tech.

    Poor Cardinals.

  • I think this would be a great idea.

    Several of the former UK players endorsed the idea of repeating the experience annually in an alumni game. Wall, a native of Raleigh, N.C., noted that North Carolina plays such a game each off-season.

    We can't let UNC out-market us, now can we?  No way.

  • John Clay sums it up in one paragraph.

    You pretenders hold back-to-back exhibition games on successive nights in the middle of August featuring a national basketball team from an obscure country with very little hoops tradition and draw a combined 40,000, then we'll talk to you about being a basketball state.
