According to John Clay, there are seats left for the Yum! Center exhibition game between the John Calipari-coached Dominican Republic teams and a professional team comprised of former UK players from the NBA.
It just won't do not to sell this place out, guys and gals. My wife and I are going, and I hope those of you who were thinking about it will pull the trigger. Let's rock this joint.
Now, for today's links:
Kentucky ‘at the top’ of Torian Graham’s list -- Jody Demling - Recruiting
Yes, but is he on Calipari's list?
We do have talent in the Kentucky backfied.
What we lack is experience.

Darius Miller impresses Matt Painter.
No surprise. Miller just keeps getting better.
Morgan Newton says Danny Trevathan is even better than you think he is.
I think he might be right.
UK makes Mitch McGary's cut.
Sounds really promising. He looks like Harrellson a little bit.
UK has not had an offensive lineman drafted since 1993.
That's an amazing stat, and not in a good way. Via John Clay.

- I guess this means an offer from Cal won't be forthcoming.
What's wrong with this picture?
Talk about a size mismatch!
Calipari, Pitino in ESPNU Coaching Special
That should be interesting.
Kentucky recruiting Archie Goodwin "...very hard."
Good. I like this kid a lot.
Checkerboard Chattter gives UK a C+ for recruiting.
Hey, it's as good as Tennessee got, and almost as good as Georgia.
Word out of UK football camp this summer is that [defensive back Anthony] Mosley has matured into the voice of the Kentucky defense. On a unit that features the Southeastern Conference's leading tackler, Danny Trevathan, and a potential pro in Winston Guy, it's actually Mosley who has evolved into the vocal leader of the defense.
This is surprising to me. I figured it would be Trevathan or Guy.
Winston Guy moves to linebacker.
I heard this might happen. I heard about Minter's new scheme. Interesting.
Want "pay for play?" Fuggettaboudit.
So says Mark Emmert, and apparently, everyone else that matters.
"There's an absolute consensus that we will never move to pay-for-play. No one, including me, believes in paying collegiate athletes for playing sports," Emmert said. "What we are interested in is seeing whether we can close the gap between the full cost of going to school and the stipend now."
I'm not surprised, but I think the problems with providing additional money for the scholarships is going to be an intractable problem.
I'm officially amused. Pretty funny, Greg.
