Today, Lance Armstrong threw up his hands after a long (and in this writer's opinion, improper) doping case pursued by the US Anti-Doping agency as well as just about everyone else in the world. Since Armstrong will not fight their circumstantial but not entirely meritless case, his 7 Tour de France titles will be
vacated stripped if the USADA has it's way, although there are hurdles facing them that may derail, at least partially, that attempt.

@sipetethamel be honest: if it were proven that John Calipari was Lance Armstrong's dope dealer, would that be the greatest day of ur life?
Thar she blows, Pete! Your quickies follow the jump.
Some negative and positive in here. Mostly, Cobbins and Collins are negative. Unless a light goes on, I don't expect either one to contribute much this year. Coaches can never really say, "they aren't ready," but when they say "they have work to do," it means they're not ready.
Legree and Sweat, now, that is some good news. I am really excited that these guys could help make our receiver corps dangerous this year.
Good luck to Josh Harrellson, I think he would be a good fit in Miami. Not only that, he could wind up with a ring on his finger with that team.
Our O-line has been a big concern, but making it through the spring and summer without major injuries, in my mind, puts them ahead of last year's group. If they can stay in one piece, it could bode well for the season offensively.
Glad to see this.
Given the media's propensity to kick Kentucky's season in the can before the first snap, I'm not surprised.
Who can say? All I know is that he's going to have to work hard to see the floor at all in Chicago. We'll see.
I have to laugh at this. I feel confident UK will win more than that, but you never really know. Hey, we could be a surprise this year -- it's a sure bet nobody will see us coming.
The Harrisons, Randle, and a good number of other prospects includingand Andrew Wiggins.
We talked about this in an article yesterday. Tickets are quite reasonable.
Do not miss this if you haven't read it. Go read it. Go now.
Ben Roberts has the skinny.
