When you go back to Ohio now, do you see that your family name commands respect there?
Oh, yeah, absolutely. I think it’s a big part of it. It’s definitely paying off.

Read point C. Hat tip: Mr. Hanky
I suspect this isn't a problem for UK. The report does not say that John Wall received the transportation. I'll bet this is a limousine ride out to his place, or something of that nature, that Clifton got from Shapiro, but it sure is uncomfortable to see such a smarmy character anywhere near our program.I wouldn't be surprised to learn we have smarmy characters around our program, too, but I hope that Sandy Bell is ferreting those scum out.

Oversigning Index: On another front, it's still Alabama and everyone else // CBSSports.com
Alabama is in another universe when it comes to "oversigning," although it says here that Kentucky is 2 over the limit as well. I suspect that's wrong for most schools that close, and even CBS acknowledges their information isn't close to bulletproof. Hat tip: Mr. Hanky.

Interesting that UM will not release the Notice of Allegations. I can't recall that happening before. Can someone refresh my memory? Hat tip. Mr. Hanky.

Kings, Rockets swap Thomas Robinson, Patrick Patterson // USA Today
Interesting move by Sacramento. I wonder if this is related to Cousins, reuniting him with a teammate? I would not be surprised.
"It's really mental with John. John wants to play well every game. He always tells me, 'You're not going to play well every game,'" Bradley Beal said after the game. "Sometimes, the advice he gives me, I wish he'd take his own advice."I love a player who hates to play bad, but taken too far, it can be a problem.
