A Sunday Morning Look Around

With not as much going on in UK land, I’m going to give you a scatter shot of stories happening around the sporting ‘verse.  There will be some Kentucky ones mixed it, too, but there’s plenty going on out there to be excited about.

— First let’s foray into the NBA finals.  Sure, you know game 3 is tonight – heck, you probably even know it’s in Dallas.  But did you know that when a series is tied, the winner of game 3 has won the title 11 out of 11 times?  That’s 100% for you math nerds out there.  And some pretty serious stuff to consider.  Friend of the Blog Gregg Doyel went ahead and told both teams about it – as if they needed more pressure to preform.

— Once an Anti-Michigan man, always an Anti-Michigan man.  Jim Tressel, despite resigning, continues to make news.  Thanks mainly to delusional Buckeye fans.  Fans held a rally at Tressel’s door step, where they had signs declaring their love, and he declared himself a Buckeye for life. I’m not normally one to judge, but come on guys.  He got you in a boat load of trouble.  Have some dignity.

— Less than a week in, and already going through Shaq withdrawals?  Understandable.  The guys at ModernMan have put together a 4 minute clip recapping Shaqs career.  It’s pretty neat to watch how his game – and acting career – developped, plus you get to play the ‘wait, what team was Shaq on in this hi-light again?’ game, so that’s always fun.

— Well, we all knew this would happen.  The Calipari-to-Knicks rumor mill is starting up, this time from a North Jersey paper that lists him as a possible candidate for the NY job.  I’ve said this a number of times and I will say it again – don’t be surprised if Calipari does take a crack at an NBA job again sometime.  But I would be shocked if it was next year.  Not with this team, not with this opportunity, and likely not for that Knicks team.

— Wanna hear Liggins talk about his work out with Charlotte?  You can check out a post-work video interview from him over at their website.  I’m beginning to feel like Liggins is going to be a dark horse in this years draft.  He may not be drafted high, but his ability to play defense will keep him in the league if he goes to a team that gives him a chance.

    i’m not sure why everyone has pretty much decided that Cal wants to go back to pros? Why? With the exception of Larry Brown, it’s not as winning formula (college to pros).

    I think, like most schools with a job opening for Head basketball coach, they would make a run at Brad Stevens…might be wrong. Hopefully we don’t find out.
