All lies and jest, still, a man hears what he wants to hear and disregards the rest. - Simon & Garfunkel, "The Boxer"

The new "King" of Kentucky Basketball is ready to assume the throne.

Welcome to the Friday UK Lynxfest, sponsored by Dooley's Motor Lodge Quick Stop Lube & Tire Center.

Joe Lunardi is back with Bracketology, remember that if you ain't the lead dog, the scenery never changes. Matt Ryan gets some love from Orlando Antigua, who he says "texted him and said he wanted to come for a visit". Brian Long says that if you come out and watch the Cats play UNC Asheville tonight you are probably going to get to see him play. Who are college basketball's number 1-2 "Most Intriguing" Head Coaches in America this season? Here is how to get the Cats on TV Sunday. You try and figure it out...

E.J. Floreal is not only talented on the court, he is talented off the court. I wonder if we could get him to write a column for ASOB? If you can't read this and see the similarities between today's game and yesterday's, you are either blind or just refuse to see. Rupp knew then what so few are willing to admit now. Life is tough. Winning builds character. "There is no point in pretending that in a democracy, every citizen should be able to beat Olympic records. We simply can not do it". Every parent in the world ought to have to read that. The day they started handing out trophies for "participating" in pee wee league sports was the beginning of the end for motivating  kids to work hard to succeed. Now they think that life owes them something because they are here.

Pat yourselves on the back Big Blue Nation. You deserve it if you were one of those there to help this man.

Saturday just might be another UK-UL 2007. No? Never say never, folks. Can the "Air Raid" come to life against Mizzou? I don't think KSR will want to nab this story from the Kernel. Times, they are a-changin'. So, will the "New" Commonwealth be anything spectacular? We shall soon find out. It's not even Saturday yet, and Joe Mansour has already had his big day of the week. We hope.

Just so everyone knows, Windstream Communications sucks. Had to get that out there. After completing my links post last night at about midnight, I wake this morning to find half of it missing and not saved. They are less reliable than Kentucky weather. And you guys wonder why this post is such a big pain to do...

And now for The Rest Of The Stories- Florida State proved the old axiom last night that sometimes when you don't play, you win. Well, this comes as no surprise. Carl Pelini says FAU Forced Him To Resign. Be thankful Carl. They should have just fired you. Jodie Meeks sent a message to Kobe Bryant last night...we got this. That's right, Kobe. Meeks can pass too. This has become completely ignorant. When the lawyers start talking look out.

And for the Links That Wild Weasel Would Never Bring You- If this happens, 3/4 of America will starve to death. When you are so drunk that your clothes catch on fire, its time to quit drinking. This is just beyond bizarre. You know what they say, truth is stranger than fiction. Only in Tennessee would someone think of trying to do this. Or Los Angeles. Buying your town a name? Come on. By the way, how does a place like "Lake City" think it can become "Rocky Top" anyway?

Our Tweet Of The Day comes from Calipari. No, not John Calipari, Brad.-

That is all...
