Congratulations to all the winners!
Well, good. If true.
I was never excited about him.
Nice job breaking down the new academic changes for student-athletes. These will have an impact on every school in America, including Kentucky. Football will likely be the most impacted, but basketball could be as well.
Coaches such as Joe Paterno (Penn State), Jim Tressel (Ohio State), Bobby Petrino (Arkansas), Butch Davis (North Carolina) and Bruce Pearl (Tennessee) in the past had been considered "untouchable," Emmert said.
There is some truth to this.
A shift has occurred, though, in which the player is gaining power. He has the ability to take his case publicly to the social media world and build up a following for his cause.
I think this is true to some degree, but experience tells me that the media is an unreliable water-carrier.
"My wife was yelling at me because I was on the phone too loud. I was waking [the couple's infant daughter] up and waking my wife up because I had the TV on. She was complaining that I not only woke my daughter up, but I also woke the baby inside her up because she’s pregnant."
You will pay for this, Pastner. Oh, yes, you will pay.
This is a media fad that will die. You can trust me on this.
Way better than John Wall.
The Offense Will Be Different In 2012 - After years of essentially running a conservative, pro-style attack, it appears that new passing game coordinator Pat Washington is bringing a large piece of the offense he was a part of at Southern Mississippi with him to Lexington. For almost all of the scrimmage, Kentucky's first team offense operate from the shotgun formation with three wide receivers, a running back, and a tight end. All of the running plays were either sweeps to the outside or some kind of inside zone running, but nothing where Maxwell Smith kept the ball and ran with it (likely because this was the spring game and he wore a red non-contact jersey). In postgame interviews, Joker Phillips told reporters that this is the offense now, and that fans can expect a 70/30 pass/run ratio in 2012. He said they hope to run 80 plays per game and if they throw it 45 times or more per game, he still considers that balance.
That's a major, major change, and it ought to bring some excitement to the offense if nothing else.
From penthouse to outhouse in just a couple of games ...
The Dawgs are playing better, though, and we do have a game left with them that was postponed back in late March.
Awesome. You know this has to have an impact. Let's just hope it's enough.
First, the Malice at the Palace, and now this. Artest/World Peace is a cancer on the NBA.
Beyond any doubt at all.
Most of what comes out of Spurrier's mouth these days is silly.
But does it guarantee the Bruins success?
Frankly, no. The issue with UCLA’s roster isn’t the talent, because there is an abundance of that. The issue is the makeup of the roster:
Exactly right. There just isn't enough perimeter scoring and ballhandling, and if it is actually possible, there is just too much size.
A badly botched firing of a coach who deserved better.
