Your Quickies:

Kentucky football
  • Kentucky's 2015 recruits are now showing up in position rankings.

  • The Ohio State Buckeyes were in Kentucky yesterday trying to woo Damien Harris:

    Ohio State coaches were in Kentucky yesterday, where they visited Madison Southern running back Damien Harris. Many people (including myself) believe he is the top running back in the 2015 recruiting class as a whole.

    He doesn't list Kentucky among his "major players," which can probably be forgiven, I think. But he may wind up having been wrong about that.

  • Four day schedule for the SEC Baseball tournament. Today are two elimination games between Arkansas and Ole Miss, followed by Mississippi St. and Florida.

  • Consider:

    Forget Arkansas: It's looking like the team from the bottom half of the bracket that will go on a run in Hoover this year is Kentucky -- yes, that Kentucky. After outlasting Mississippi State in a 12-inning marathon, the Wildcats are now one win away from playing for the SEC tournament championship, despite the fact that everything says they shouldn't.

College football
  • Jameis Winston may not get charged or thrown out of school for his alleged rape, which the prosecutors refused to prosecute, but his buddies who were with him might not get off so easy. Looks like laws and standards, as usual, are for the little people.

  • Nerlens Noel is expected to make his NBA debut this summer in the summer leagues:

  • NBA Draft breakdown with Jonathan Givony of Draft Express.

  • Johnny Manziel is being sued for $25 million for "sexual harrassment."

    The complaint looks specious to me, and the punitive damages absurd. On the other hand, the descriptions of Manziel's "package" are more than a little hilarious.

    Then there's this:

    Okay, well... Yeah, that's probably right. And:

    Haha! And no, this is not some Internet hoax, it's real:
