Easter Sunday’s Links

Happy Easter! Why yes, that is a UK fan putting three goggles on a lamb in the picture above. The man is Hunter Pass, a loyal Cat and KSR reader, who is holding one of three baby lambs born last Saturday night during the Kentucky/Louisville game. For those not versed in sheep fertility, apparently it’s not very common for a sheep to give birth to three lambs and have them all survive. Yet, these three did, and were henceforth named “Doron,” “Doron,” and “Lamb.” Baa.

Now dig in to that chocolate bunny and enjoy these Easter links:

— Last night was the Nike Hoop Summit, and judging from the lively chatter on the site last night, several of you watched. Here’s a recap for those of you who didn’t, and don’t worry, I’ll be back with some more info later this morning.

— Even before he scored a record 35 points in last night’s game, NBA scouts were impressed by Shabazz Muhammad, calling him the only NBA-ready player in the group.

— Our old pal Jerry Tipton writes that Calipari has found an unexpected ally in David Ridpath, an assistant professor of sports administration at Ohio University and an outspoken critic of one-and-done. Before it gets too warm and fuzzy, Tipton steers his ship into more familiar waters, mentioning the Calipari to the Knicks rumors that Cal put to rest last week.

Jen Smith has a nice profile of La’Rod King, who is ready to lead the team in his senior year.

— Last week, Cal said his new mission at Kentucky is to catch UCLA in overall title wins. Mark Story explores whether or not he thinks it can be done.

— Future Cat Alex Poythress was named The Tennessean’s 2012 boys basketball player of the year.

— Jody Demling gets on trend by comparing the 2012 National Champs to the 1996 National Champs as part of The Courier-Journal’s special section about the team.

— Rick Bozich says Terrence Jones’ return was a big key to the Cats’ championship run.

— Larry Vaught interviewed ESPN’s Paul Biancardi about Kentucky’s top two targets, Shabazz Muhammad and Nerlens Noel. Biancardi thinks Noel may be the more important signee for the Cats because of his unique shot blocking ability.

Be back soon.

    Funny that LaRod King is set to “lead” us. “Lead” us in what? Dropped passes? It’s about time we get real about football on here and admit next season will be a disaster. I want Joker fired right now. I know we can’t ever be great at football, but we can at least be decent. With Joker, we are one of the worst teams in any of the BCS conferences.

    The idiot who used to coach basketball at IU and Texas Tech (I refuse to name him) had a speaking engagment on the North Side of Indy last night and of course throwing a barb at UK fans stating that when he didn’t mention UK by name their fans were in an uproar by his using that “TEAM” from the SEC when talking about Kentucky. The went on to say I thought they were smart enough to know I was talking about them, after all they are in the SEC. Screw that old codger, the only good thing he’ll ever do is get senile never to be heard of again….

    Great. With this picture you have just given every opponent additional fodder for trash talk. A gap-toothed, hairless hilljack holding his girlfriend/wife/Saturday night special. Thanks for perpetuating the stereotype KSR!
