News and commentary from around the Big Blue Internet. Aaron Gordon leaning toward UK? Calipari criticizes Poythress, Wiltjer in pre-Texas A&M remarks. Randall Cobb returning to Packers lineup. More.
Sorry for the lack of morning news, I just figured there was so much pent-up discussion about last night's game that the two articles up were sufficient for that. But you should now be good and bored about analyzing the game in Nashville last night. I know I am. Time for some news.
Big recruiting weekend coming up for football. Huge. How huge? Read this comment from A Sea of Blue member wamarsh. Awesome.

You need to totally watch this interview, and read what Ben wrote. This kid is one of the sharpest and most articulate players I have heard. I actually think I want him more than Wiggins or Randle right now. Incredibly impressive.

Look Ahead: No. 1 Duke and No. 2 Michigan are at risk this weekend // CBSSports.com
Duke and Michigan are in tough spots this weekend, and I think at least one goes down. I also think Minnesota has a better shot at the Hoosiers than most people think. Yeah, it's in Assembly Hall, but Indiana is due for a let down there.

Oh, man, I was expecting a swinging elbow, not a forearm shove to the face. Bad foul, maybe flagrant by the definition, but certainly it wasn't a dangerous foul. And he did try to catch Carter as he bean his crumple. But with Cuz's rep, he'll get a stiff fine, most likely.
