If you just crawled out from under a Big Blue rock, or happened to be one of those people born yesterday, you may not have heard that Andrew and Aaron Harrison, two of the crème de la crème of the 2013 high school recruiting class, will choose between the Maryland Terrapins and Kentucky Wildcats today.

Tweet of the Morning:

Now you know why this is such a big deal.

I find this troubling. At best, it looks like very bad PR for the Volunteers.

If so, an entire state will boycott the sale of Under Armour, but Big Blue Nation will be okay. It’ll just take us a month or two to get over it.

Heh. Indeed.

9 storylines in play this weekend // Saturday Down South

Takin’ care of business: The #20 ranked Mississippi State wants to send a message this weekend to the effect of “Don’t forget about us!” as they match up against Kentucky. We certainly will until MSU beats a worthy opponent. In a weird way, if MSU takes care of business and smacks around the Wildcats, some will compare last week’s South Carolina game and say the Bulldogs are better than South Carolina, and we will collectively agree because we have no idea how good Mississippi State really is. Kentucky has to have something good go their way this season, right?

One would think. Read the whole thing.
