  • John Calipari having dinner with his "sons." "Dad" picked up the tab.
  • Coach Cal talks about the maturing of DeMarcus Cousins. Imagine -- he would have been a senior this upcoming year.
  • Three UK prospects will play on ESPNU this week.
  • A summary of Jeff Sheppard's comments from yesterday on KSR.
  • Now, Jeff Sheppard doesn't think UK can win the 2014 championship? Seems so:

    "I am 100 percent for UK and the program and want them to win all their games and win a national championship, but I am not going to predict that. I am going to predict they will not be as bad as last year. I just don’t believe that a team this young can win a national championship," said Sheppard. "I hope this year’s team proves me wrong.  Maybe the talent level will be so much greater that I will be proven wrong, and I hope that I am. All I can do is speak from my experience, and that experience gave us such an advantage when we were playing."

    He's entitled to his opinion, of course, and he may well be right, for all I know. What I also know is that UK was not much, if any, more experienced when they won in 2012 than they will be this year.

    Well, how's about a tattoo if you're wrong, Jeff? If your former coach can do it ...

  • 2014 UK target Emmanuel Mudiay will return to Prime Prep in spite of questions surrounding the school's academics.
