Big Blue Nation Linkapalooza: Baylor in Trouble Edition

Scott Drew and the Baylor Bears have NCAA issues.

It seems that Baylor has gone and gotten themselves in the NCAA trick bag, which has long been rumored and reported on. Now, the facts are starting to come out.

The list of early entrants for the NBA draft include several freshmen not from Kentucky. Will anyone notice. Bob Knight? Bueller?

Here are your links:

Combined, the men's and women's basketball programs sent 738 impermissible text messages and made 528 impermissible calls over a span of nearly two-and-a-half years.

Knew this was coming.

Tony Wroten? But wait, isn't he a freshman? Oh, that's right, it's only bad when it happens at Kentucky.


Ashley Judd Slaps Media in the Face for Speculation Over Her ‘Puffy’ Appearance // The Daily Beast

And she should. Good for Ashley for getting this out there. Women in our culture, especially in television and media, are objectified to the point of inhumanity, and those participating in the type of discussion that criticizes every flaw and blemish should be ashamed of themselves.

Bad news for Phillips, particularly Tim Patterson leaving the team.

I do consider Oriakhi a backup plan for Noel.


Who's begrudging Kentucky? - College Basketball Nation Blog - ESPN

At this point, if you are lamenting Kentucky's success in moralistic terms -- those kids should be staying all four years! they need to get their degrees! -- you're dumb. Sorry! It's not nice to say that, but it's true! You're dumb!

Heh. Word.

You all know I think Petrino is the lowest form of pond scum. This just supports that opinion.

Probably. Well, moving on...


John Jenkins to leave Vanderbilt, enter the NBA Draft // CollegeBasketballTalk

"This was a very difficult decision for my family and I to make, but I am ready to dedicate myself fully to achieving my dream of playing in the NBA," said Jenkins. "The last three years have been the time of my life, and I will always cherish my time at Vanderbilt and the relationships I have made along the way."

Not that surprising, really.


Max Smith Is The Man...If? // LEX18 True Blue Fan

With Morgan Newton out recovering from shoulder surgery and Patrick Towles, a big time prospect watching from the sidelines because he's still in high school, how Smith plays this spring and in August will have more to do with who starts against Louisville than the other candidates. This is an opportunity that can change your career. It can change your life.

C.J. McCollum: Why I'm returning to Lehigh for my senior year // Sporting News

My family and I believe another year in college will be more beneficial for me on and off court. If I were in a situation where I needed money, I would definitely consider taking my career to the next level. But both of my parents work hard to ensure my brother and I can live comfortably, which takes away any added pressure to pursue a professional career at this time. The fact that my brother plays professionally over in Israel doesn’t hurt, either.

It's also likely that he might miss the first round, which he doesn't mention, but doesn't need to.

Could Kansas replace Kentucky on Indiana’s schedule? // Inside the Hall

"I strongly prefer to keep the games on the respective campuses," Glass told Inside the Hall on April 5. "We owe it to our student bodies to try to do that."

I strongly feel that we should play at neutral sites. Has Glass already forgotten he had to apologize for IU fans' behavior in Assembly Hall this year? This series is too hot right now to be played home and home.


UK-U of L notes: Baseball not hiding from importance of rivalry game // Kentucky Wildcats

No, it's not make or break for the No. 1 Wildcats (30-3, 9-3 Southeastern Conference) and won't have any bearing on their quest for an SEC title, but Tuesday's 6:30 p.m. tilt with No. 19 Louisville (23-9, 7-2 Big East) is unmistakably significant. Catcher/first baseman Luke Maile grew up in Crestview Hills, Ky., and knows what this rivalry is all about.

We definitely want to rack up yet another Cardinal victory.
