Here are the comparisons for the Kentucky and Indiana rosters for the summer duo of games between the states. The Kentucky All-Stars have been embarrasing the past decade, losing 16 of the past 18 games. And I gotta be honest, this years game doesn’t look like that great a matchup either. Besides Darius Miller and Scotty Hopson, no other Kentucky player has a major Division 1 offer, although Landon Slone will walk-on at UK. Indiana has 6 guys with D-1 offers, although Kyle Kuric will reportedly be a walk-on at Louisville. I will give you that Miller and Hopson are the best duo to come out of the state in years, but will it be enough to take a game from the Hoosier State? Another interesting note: This will be the first time in nearly 50 YEARS that no player from the city of Louisville will be on the squad. And for the first time in many years, one of the games will be played in Louisville!! Kinda surprised Adam Delph was not put on the team for the simple fact he is headed to UK. You have two or three guys who don’t even have a committment yet on the team. Also, if you are a Butler Bulldog fan, you get to see 4 of your teams recruits in the games. I always love this series because its just a way to see which state has better basketball considering the two states argue over who is the best. As much as I wasn’t impressed with Tyler Zeller, watch for him to be the difference as nobody Kentucky has can match his height. My prediction: Indiana wins both games by 5-10 points.

1. Rivals has released its updated 2008 Basketball Rankings.  Deandre Liggins comes in at 28th and Darius Miller slips in the Top 50 at 43rd.  Scotty Hopson jumped all the way to #5, and if hadn’t heard he did FINALLY sign with Tennessee.  The other notable player is Ater Majok, who came in at #13, which seems extrememly high, but the kid does have some great skills.    

2. A website I use often to find funny things is Extra Mustard.  And they basically did my job today because they released their 50 best/hottest women photos of the past year.  So, thank you Extra Mustard, I love you!!

3. Along those same lines, FHM Magazine has produced their 2008 Sexiest Woman Alive list.  I link you to a photo gallery of the Top 10, but on the right side of the page are links to all 100 women. 

4. This year’s NBA playoffs have the potential to be the best in a long time, not only because of the loaded Western Conference, but the emergence of the young NBA stars.  Chris Paul, Dwight Howard, and Deron Williams just to name a few, to go along with Kobe and Lebron, Gilbert Arenas, Garnett.  Its the 1st time in recent memory that I have been interested in the 1st round of the playoffs for no other reason than great players and matchups.  While the NBA will not touch the NFL in popularity, I truly think it has the possibility to become #2 ahead of baseball and MLS(ha).  And the one really great thing going for David Stern, all of his great stars are guys without criminal records (KOBE WAS AQUITTED).  Long way around but here are the 10 greatest dunks in NBA playoff history history. 

5. You may remember a while back the videos of Artie Lange quitting the Howard Stern Show after what appeared to be a very serious fight with his assistant.  Now, the video has come out from that fight, and I gotta be honest, it wasn’t as “crazy” as I thought.  All I did really think was, “boy, Artie Lange is a physcho.”
