Spencer Hall, the artist formerly known as Orson Swindle, has an interview with former UK great Tim Couch about the NFL Draft, and there are a few things in there that I didn't know, and maybe you didn't either.

Here's one:

SBN: What was Hal Mumme (Couch's coach at Kentucky) like during the whole decision process? That's another thing people don't often get a window into when considering the draft.

TC: Hal understood. Hal actually told me to leave. He said, "All five of your offensive linemen are seniors, and leaving. Your top receiver, Craig Yeast, is leaving. You're gonna come back as a senior, and break in a whole new team. You can't get any higher than one, so all you're going to do by coming back is hurt yourself. Of course I want you to stay, but you should go." He was cool about it.

You know, that was really good advice by Mumme, and his reasoning, to me at least, looks flawless. Yes, Couch could have come back and played his senior year, but with a new line and new receivers, he would have had a much better chance of injury.

I find this most interesting because this looks to me exactly like something John Calipari would say to a player. My respect for Mumme just went up, but of course, after what happened to the program while he was here, it had no other direction to go.
