Kentucky Wildcats: Morning Quickies - Football Playoff Edition

Marvin Gentry-US PRESSWIRE

News and commentary from around the Big Blue Internet. Bat Cats lose 7th in a row in marathon game at Western Kentucky. #19 softball to face #8 Louisville. Larry Warford gets ready for NFL draft. More.

So the new football playoff begins next year, and it's named ... The College Football Playoff.

Tweet of the Morning:

Truly. It is well worth looking forward to.

  • John Calipari and Tom Izzo back proposed practice changes // ESPN

    “I like it,” said Calipari, who added he wouldn’t change his Midnight Madness date of Oct. 18. “What we’re about to undertake has never been done before – to bring in a group like this. They recruited each other. We’ve got a great staff, but they recruited each other. It took the Miami Heat two years to do what they did. We’ve got to do it in three months. We’ll have the summer, but we could have used a foreign trip with this group.”

    I like it as well, but in typical Calipari fashion, he goes on and on about how this has “…never been done before.” I think the Michigan Fab Five was close enough to dispute that statement, and they did pretty well.

    It’s hardly a surprise that Calipari agrees with more practice time, especially bringing in young guys like this every year.

    Works for me.

    “Potential is exactly that,” Cauley-Stein said. “We had the potential this year and didn’t capitalize on it. So it could easily be we have the best recruiting class coming in and not do anything with it. It’s that simple. If you don’t come together and do things right, then you’re just a bunch of talented kids that didn’t get anything accomplished.”

    Exactly right. Smart kid.
