To hear Randall Cobb refer to himself as "an embarrassment" will provoke many in the Big Blue Nation to rally around him in his defense. But he did have a very poor game by his, or any other quality wide receiver’s standards Sunday:

"Our defense played their butts off tonight," Cobb said. "We did nothing for them. It was kind of embarrassing as an offense, embarrassing myself the way I played.

"I have to do more, I have to give this team more. I have to look in the mirror first and see where it is that I can do to help this team out."

Tweet of the morning

Can you say, "bargain," boys and girls? I knew you could.

  • The kerfuffle that just won’t die — still more on the dustup over Team USA recruiting advantage. Again, I think these reporters are asking the wrong question.

  • UK recruit Malik Newman’s idea of a good time is a late night workout in the gym. Hard not to like that.

  • Yahoo! criticizes Courier-Journal’s photoshop of Calipari that we discussed the other day. Consider:

    Most importantly, it’s not fair to Calipari. Though Jim Boeheim accused Calipari on Wednesday of complaining to both him and USA Basketball about the extra access to prospects that Duke and Syracuse coaches receive, the Kentucky coach has never publicly made any such statement. In fact, he handled Boeheim’s comments with class on Thursday in a string of tweets.

    I think this is an important point. We’re taking Boeheim’s word that Calipari really said that, and even if he did, he didn’t utter it for public consumption.

  • John Calipari thanks the record number of campers at the Big Blue Madness campout.
