For all the throwing it around stuff you're hearing Stoops is bringing some guys who can really scheme a rushing attack. Smart move.— Greg NJ (@GregNJ) December 11, 2012
Good to hear. Wonder how that will fit into the Air Raid?

Well, look who's on the front page -- Coach Cal and Coach O.
I had a really good talk with Coach (John) Calipari since my injury too. He’s funny. He told me that worst-case scenario, if I never play again, I could still come to Kentucky on scholarship and after I graduate I’d be his assistant. The crazy thing is that I know he’s serious about that. It just showed me how much he really cared about me and my future. That meant a lot to me.Well, let it never be said that Calipari doesn't care about the kids he recruits.

But here's the twist in all of that: As the Big East continues to bastardize its product, adding schools that offer FBS football teams, if not competitive ones, and basketball programs, if not traditional or successful ones, those schools are only hurting their name brands anyway.Exactly. The Big East is an object lesson in reactionary politics, and why they are a bad idea.

Mayo Says DeMarcus Cousins "Has Mental Issues" After Altercation // AllKyHoops.com
I don't know, DeMarcus, not sure that was "unintentional." Might have been, and it's really hard to tell for sure, but my reaction was that it looked deliberate. Still, for OJ Mayo to call Cousins immature is one of those "Pot, meet kettle" moments.
