Mark Emmert is set to take the stand today in the O'Bannon vs. NCAA trial. This should be interesting. Somebody pass the popcorn.

Your Quickies:

Kentucky football
  • Recruiting Florida isn't easy, even for Florida schools....very competitive. {Hank}

  • Understanding how camp season works. {Hank}

  • Three things we know, and three things we don't know, about Kentucky football next season. The third thing we "know" is a little... suspect:

    1. It's going to be a long year.

    When a team is coming off of consecutive 2-10 seasons, it's most likely going to have another rough go of it. The schedule doesn't really set things up for a backdoor into bowl season should the team surprise to the upside, and the fact that all of those old guys made the core of some awful teams doesn't inspire hope of such a surprise anyway. The key to the season might just be the team's second game against Ohio. Win it, and there can still be hope for something crazy to happen later. Lose it, and it might nudge the staff into a youth movement where Mark Stoops's highly touted underclassmen get thrown into the fire for seasoning. If the latter is the way things go, the team will take some real lumps this fall. [My emphasis]

    "...It's most likely..." doesn't quite fit the "know" part of the title. I do agree with the substance paragraph and opinion of the author, but this isn't really a "known." It's more of an educated guess.
