USA TODAY Sports

News and commentary from around the Big Blue Nation. Kentucky takes on Eastern Michigan tonight in their final non-conference game. Kentucky gets visit from high 4* dual-threat quarterback. Randall Cobb ready to return. More.

Tonight, Kentucky closes out its non-conference season against the Eastern Michigan Eagles. It's also back-to-work days for those of us with long holidays. We'll get through it somehow.

Tweet of the Morning:

This is absolutely right. For the next couple of games at least, Alex Poythress will be the focus of the Big Blue Nation's attention - and John Calipari's.

    So who is Asiantii Woulard? Well, some services rate him as the #1 dual threat quarterback in the country. He’s 6’3, comes from Winter Park Florida, and is a 4* recruit by most services. He’s a 5.9 on rivals though, meaning he’s very close to being a 5* recruit. He was originally committed to USF, but has opened things up now that Skip Holtz has been fired.
    This would be a great get for Kentucky.

    NCAA basketball coaches have always talked out of both sides of their mouth when needed about the importance of free throws but rarely spend the necessary amount of time in practice . Just like NCAA football coaches talk about the importance of special teams but rarely spend the amount of quality time in preparation needed .
    There is a lot of truth in that comment. Calipari is somewhat famous for a failure to follow throw on free throw problems.

    12-4 would be a disappointment to me in conference.

    Officials have to be held accountable for their actions when there is a mistake. Just like coaches, players and yes, even those of us in the media who cover the games and the sport. That’s why it was good to see Big East official Karl Hess come out late Tuesday night and say officials were wrong in not giving Connecticut a goal-tending basket in overtime after the officials failed to realize UConn and Marquette were facing the wrong way to start the extra period.
    This is right. Why can't we see more of this in college basketball? Somehow, officials have evolved into something like bureaucrats - unaccountable to anyone for a failure of competence.
