Karl Towns makes his college choice today at 10:00 AM Eastern. Towns is considered the best player in the 2015 recruiting class, and there have been rumors that he may reclassify into 2014.

Sounds like a plan.

I think this was a great hire by Stoops. Time will tell.

I think the vast majority of UK fans are very pleased that Phillips rebounded so quickly.

I hope he's right.
Charlie Strong, Mark Stoops and James Quick // John Clay's Sidelines
Charlie Strong was the hot topic last night on twitter. Instead of basking in the glow of his team's Sugar Bowl invitation, the Louisville coach fumbled his way through a clumsy press conference in which Strong knocked his fans, complemented his arch-rival and basically refused to say he would be the Cardinals' head coach in 2013.Heh.

Coach Cal turning to tough love to hold Cats accountable // CoachCal.com
Sometimes, this stuff is painful to read. I get Calipari's points, and I think he's mostly right. But sometimes, it's just hard to read this and not say, "How could you let this happen?" I know that's not fair -- every coach has a team that doesn't quite go as planned -- but you get to the point where you wonder how many alarm bells have to go off?

Interesting comments from Goodwin. He seems quite decisive, but I wonder if he has bought into the idea of being his "brother's keeper?"

The Sugar Bowl doesn't draw rave reviews in terms of watchability. The Holiday Bowl is the surprise to me out of this group.

I think Andy has a solid point here. Alabama has played a relatively weak schedule, and they are not nearly as immortal-looking as in some previous years.
