It seems that John Calipari feels fairly strongly about not doing the "platoon" thing again. I don’t think he was comfortable with it, but at it’s peak, it was devastating.

Last season was an absolute outlier. It’s just not the way I like to coach," Calipari wrote on Tuesday. "I would rather play seven or eight guys because I believe that gives us the best chance to win. I think we wrote the book on platooning this year, but I hope we stick it on the shelf and never have to use it again."

I think, like platooning, this season’s recruiting was an absolute outlier, too.

  • This disgusts me in more ways than one. First of all, the word "Havoc" being trademarked by VCU is, as so many similar trademarks, absolutely stupid and such activity should be forbidden by the NCAA. It sets up schools as little more than marketing organizations. How much commercialization is too much? Trademarking words like this is too much. What’s next, Calipari trademarking "players first?" For the love of God, where does it end?

    Second, really Texas? How freaking unoriginal is stealing another school’s shtick on top of stealing their coach? Pathetic. Both sides make me nauseous.

  • David Gardner at SI has some suggestions for Florida’s new head basketball coach.

  • Andy Kennedy signs a new contract with Ole Miss through 2019.
