Today at 3:30 in the Georgia Dome, the Kentucky Wildcats reprise their game against the Mississippi Rebels, this time for the right to move on to the semifinals of the SEC tournament. We'll have a short preview of that contest following the daily links, which follow:

Rematch promises to be physical :: Lexington Herald-Leader
Reviewing the tape of Ole Miss's 71-69 victory on Feb. 1 showed what Calipari called "a lot of ugly stuff." Getting outhustled. Defending the pick-and-roll poorly. Getting pushed around.
"They were physical on our drives," Calipari said. "When we ran from them and they physically hit, we couldn't play."
Will Kentucky match Ole Miss' physicality this time? I guess we'll see

This looks like a secondary violation. Pelphrey doesn't need any more trouble, but I doubt this will be the straw that breaks the camel's back.

"I think it's amazing that Coach [John] Calipari has not gotten more credit," Kennedy said.

"My guess is there will be 27,000 people here tomorrow and 26,500 will be wearing blue," Kennedy said, walking to the team bus late Thursday afternoon.
Sounds about right.

Media Investigations Are Helping Compliance - The Blog of the NCAA
Ultimately the team at Yahoo! Sports is a force of good in college athletics. The uncovering of violations and the sanctioning of offenders helps fix what is broken (sub. req’d) no matter who starts the process. We know that the NCAA and its members haven’t punted enforcement to the media and many talented and dedicated people are working from the inside. Outside help shouldn’t be turned away.
I think this is right.
