Happy birthday to the U.S. Marine Corps. It was born on this day in 1775 under the authority of the Continental Congress.
Tweet of the Morning
Someone said in the postgame that if UK beats Tennessee, all is forgiven. Why not?
Matt Elam is really, really strong, along with being really, really big. And Erik Korem thinks he’s going to be a holy terror.
Team Speed Kills points out that the Georgia victory doesn’t change the goals of either team. That’s true, but it’s still embarrassing.
John Calipari’s post-Georgetown press conference. Hat tip: John Clay:
John Calipari says Kentucky would get buried by NBA foes. He’s right, we all know he’s right, moving on.

Dan Wetzel thinks Michigan should try to lure Bob Stoops away from OU. That sounds like a lateral move to me, and it isn’t as if Stoops went to Michigan, but he did play in the Big Ten. But Oklahoma has more mythical national championships than Michigan, so I’m not sure what the attraction would be.
UNC player sues North Carolina, alleges breach of contract in providing a quality education by guiding them into sham classes. Heh. That sounds like a winning argument to me.
Auburn has likely fumbled away any CFB Playoff hopes. That was even more embarrassing than Kentucky’s defenestration by Georgia.
