Apparently, Uruguay star striker Luis Suarez took his teeth to some Italian guy yesterday during a World Cup match, and apparently not for the first time, and here's why that's not a good thing.

Really, dude? Biting in sports is evil. There is no middle ground. Somebody should knock his teeth out, he apparently doesn't know what they're supposed to be for anyway.

Indeed.

  • Most NBA Draft analysts have Kentucky's Julius Randle going to either the Lakers or Celtics at #6 or #7. They are all over the place on Young, as high as 12 and as low as 24. I totally doubt 24.

  • Highlights of Kentucky's lone 2015 commitment so far:

    Not a single perimeter shot. This kid is the archetype of a "slasher." Hat tip: NextCats.

  • Carlton Bragg, a top UK recruit for 2015:

    Is it just me, or does this kid seem to have a little DeMarcus Cousins 'tude going on? Maybe it's just the headband. Hat tip: NextCats.

  • Comments from an NBA scout on a bunch of players in the draft. Read the article to get the comments on Randle and Young, which I think are spot on except for the foot injury stuff. Here's a taste, his evaluation of Johnny O'Bryant:

    Johnny O'Bryant, 6-8 forward, LSU. "Very skilled post player. I like the fact that from Year 1 to Year 2, he worked on his body. Now he can score over those long athletes. One of the sleepers in this draft. He's an old-school, back-to-the-basket low-post scorer. He reminds you of Al Jefferson."

    This is exactly my opinion as well. O'Bryant could be the steal of the draft for somebody, and he's capable of developing range.

  • Willie Cauley-Stein's ankle, 10 weeks after surgery. Looks good to me. No swelling, minor scar. Nice technique. He should be fine.

  • If you could erase one shot from UK history (other than Christan Laettner's 1992 dagger), which one would it be?

  • Kentucky's non-conference schedule is shaping up. A lot of can't-miss games this season.
