Kentucky set a school record with three UK teams in the APR top 10% in their respective sports nationwide. Very impressive work by UK and the athletics department, not to mention the student-athletes.

Looking good after all these years, Abe.

  • Kentucky and Coach Cal finalize his extension. It will be hard, at this level, for the NBA to lure him away. I’m sure they’ll still talk about it, but this kind of money is hard to pay a former failed NBA coach.

    It’s worth noting that Calipari signed the extension before the latest round of speculation that he might leave for an NBA job heated up. On Tuesday, the Times-Picayune reported that he’d expressed interest in the New Orleans Pelicans’ head-coaching vacancy, which makes some sense as his former pupils Anthony Davis and Tyreke Evans play there.

  • Calipari proud of commitment to young people and academics:

    Having three teams earn the APR top-10 award ties the school record set a year ago. It’s also the first time that a UK squad has won in four consecutive years, as this marks four in a row for men’s golf. Women’s cross country has won two years in a row. Men’s basketball earned the honor for the second time, also in 2009.

  • Karl Towns four draft day scenarios. I like #4 just for the pure novelty of it all.

  • Think Mark Fox might be leaving Georgia? Think again. He’s doing a really good job.

  • Oh man, this is damn funny. Sweet home Alabama on Rocky Top is not going to make Butch Jones a happy man.
