Apple announced all sorts of things in the kickoff of their Worldwide Developer's Conference in San Francisco, except for one — no new devices.

Tweet of the Morning

That's exciting news! Romero has been the subject of extensive commentary as Kansas St. has repeatedly tried to block her transfer.

Your Quickies:

Kentucky football
  • Guess who made the final five in the OL competition? 2016 prime target Drake Jackson of Woodford County and 2015 UK commit Mason Wolfe of Henderson County. Congrats are in order. {Hank}

  • Recruit of the Week: Defensive end Darius Fullwood.

  • Javess Blue is #86 on Saturday Down South's top 100 in the SEC. Consider:

    Blue’s a weapon for either passer and could be in for a stellar final campaign as the Wildcats’ No. 1 option for offensive coordinator Neal Brown. To give him more touches, Kentucky will continue to utilize Blue’s quickness on special teams as well as its primary punt and kickoff return man — similar to the way former playmaker and current Green Bay Packers wideout Randall Cobb was used in Lexington.

  • Jarrod Polson is certain about John Calipari's motives:

    “I am sure it gives him some pride to go to as many Final Fours and championships as he has been,” said Polson. “I think that is a good thing, but I really do feel like he cares more about his players than his own accomplishments. Playing for a guy like that makes you want to win for him because you know how much he wants you to win for yourself, not him. [my emphasis]

    I really don't think there's much doubt about this. Only cynics and haters believe otherwise, in my view.

  • Calipari thinks Randle will be much better suited for the NBA:

    “He was quadruple-teamed last year. No one in college basketball was played how he was played and so it took a little bit away from that, whatever you want to say, that shine. We, again, were trying to win games so there were times he could have been doing more on the perimeter, but we were trying to win.”

  • Coach Cal has confirmed the Bahamas tour for the Wildcats this summer:

    Caliapari said UK will play six national teams, many of which contain current NBA players, this August. In conjunction with the trip — Division I teams are allowed to take them once every four years — the Wildcats will get 10 extra practices.

    The last one of these really did the team a world of good. I hope this one does as well.

  • For practice next season, it's football pads from the beginning. Via Aaron's blog
