Dr. Jack Ramsay, legendary NBA coach and broadcaster, passed away last night. He was in hospice care after a 15-year battle with cancer that he ultimately lost. He will be missed, and our best wishes and prayers go out to his family.

Still pretty impressive. Anytime we can outperform LSU and come close to Florida, we've done a good job.

Your Quickies:

  • Darren Durham at WBN has some observations about the spring game. I agree with this:

    The offensive line looked good. After hearing about Ramsey Meyers for a year, seeing him play with the first team was impressive. But perhaps more impressive was how well the second team offensive line performed against the first team defense. The middle of that defensive line is unproven but Bud Dupree, ZaDarius Smith and Jason Hatcher are high quality defensive ends and the backup tackles held their own.

    Will had a similar observation here.

  • The SEC announces some changes to football scheduling. The eight game conference slate remains, including the 6-1-1 format. The SEC has added a requirement that each team schedule a non-conference game from one of the five "power" conferences. That's meaningless for Kentucky because of the Louisville game, as it is for most other schools with big non-conference rivals.
