The Bat Cats found a little life this weekend, taking the series off Auburn 2-1 to get just over .500 in the league. Kentucky really needed this series win, and needs another this weekend in Athens versus the Georgia Bulldogs.

  • It should be no surprise to anyone that Andrew Wiggins, Joel Embiid and Jabari Parker will skip the Chicago pre-draft camp. They can only hurt themselves.

  • Right now, the Georgia Bulldogs basketball schedule does not leave me impressed. Am I wrong?

  • The Oregon basketball players accused of rape will not be charged by Oregon authorities due to lack of evidence of a crime. However, it is clear from the police report that they behaved badly, and inappropriately. Given what we know, I think dismissal is an appropriate punishment, and if Oregon revokes their scholarships, I think it is probably justified.

  • "Tarnished Heels: How unethical actions and deliberate deceit at the University of North Carolina ended 'The Carolina Way'" is released. I suppose this is the "Kentucky's shame" of UNC basketball.

    By the way, who gets the blame for this? Ol' Roy?

  • Transfers put Bob Huggins on the defensive. I'd say so.

  • Controversy over Youngstown State's hiring of Jim Tressel as president:

    "A lot of people thought we’d be a laughingstock if we brought Jim Tressel in here, who’s been disgraced by Ohio State. Regardless of whether you think he got a punishment that was suitable, he did lie and was found to have covered stuff up," Weeks said.

    Faculty also said his vision for the university wasn’t clear, comparing his public presentation on his Akron candidacy last week to a football locker room speech. "It wasn’t clear he had much of a vision. He talked a lot about everyone being selfless and having unity, which is fine but it falls short of a vision," said William D. Rich, an associate professor of law and chairman of Akron’s Faculty Senate.
