Today marks day 2 PME (post-Meeks Eruption) and things still have not returned to normal in the Big Blue Nation.  The national media is still buzzing, Big Blue fans are still chattering, and this is undoubtedly the biggest UK basketball event since Tubby Smith packed up for Minnesota.

But there are other things happening, and we'll get to some of that now.

  • Cat Scratches is the just-launched blog of UK Athletics.  Eric Lindsey of the Media Relations department is apparently the blogger, and posted a ton of stuff yesterday you will want to read.  Welcome to the blogsophere, Eric.
