    Trey Lyles question: If he indicates that he wants to transfer to another school/coach, does that school/coach then have the ability to communicate with him about possibly transferring?

    Alright everyone! Today’s drinking game:

    1 shot – for “long time listener, first time caller” calls

    1 shot – for Ryan saying “I don’t know”

    1 shot – technical difficulty silence

    1 shot – for that awkward pause after Matt says a callers name and the caller saying hello forgetting that there is a delay.

    Eric Crawford and Rick Bozich are filling in for Bob Valvano as guest hosts on Bob’s radio show from noon to 3 p.m. on ESPN680 today. ( ESPNlouisville.com )

    Indiana basketball coach Tom Crean will join them around 12:05… Jeff Goodman of CBSSports.com is booked for 130 to discuss the results of a poll that named Roy Williams of North Carolina as the most overrated coach in college hoops.

    That’s kind of the mentality Indiana people have — to force people to do things. That comes from years of looking up to “The General.”

    While on vacation in Florida last Month I went golfing. I had a group of IU fans comment on my UK club covers. They were bragging that they ruined our Undefeated season. I told them WoW, do you hang banners for that? I told them I would take a National Championship over that anytime. They shut up and went on their way.

    I was playing in the Streetball Showdown in Louisville the year before Rajon Rondo came to UK. After one of our games I happened to recognize one of our recent commitments. It was Rondo, this was the first oppurtunity I had ever had to talk to any UK player. So I approached him not having a clue what I would say. So, I walked up and said…Your gunna ball this year? He looked at me like I was an idiot, and nodded his head and walked in the opposite direction. At first I was like what a jerk…and to tell you the truth I never really changed my opinion

    A few years ago, I saw a hooded Perry Stevenson walking around a very crowded Mall St. Matthews in Louisville two days before Christmas. It was like he was trying to be incognito, but I yelled out, “WHAT UP BIG PERRY!?!!” He gave me a “what’s up” and a hand slap/shake. Then, a couple of Loserville fans with their flat-bills on starting booing Perry from across the way.

    In June 1992 while I was a Junior at UK, I lived at Park Plaza apartments. It was a pretty nice apartment
    with a doorman, indoor pool, 10 or 12 floors, etc. Returning home one night at about 3 a.m. after some partaking
    of adult beverages,swiped my card and got on an elevator to head to my room. As the doors were closing,
    the doorman yells to hold the elevator. I drunkenly reached out to stop the doors from closing and whom
    to my surprise did I see wobbling onto the elevator? None other than Jamal Mashburn. We stood there on the ride up,
    both obviously intoxicated, and I nodded to him and said “Waz up”? He nodded back and replied, “gonna see my girl”.
    I said “that’s cool”. He replied “yup”. The door opened to my floor, we nodded to each other again, and I left
    him to continue his ride.

    John Calipari outworks virtually every coach when it comes to recruiting. It makes some really good coaches appear to be doing a worse job because at the end of the day, they are losing major recruits to Cal. Cal’s competitor’s aren’t going to say he beats them because he outworks them and out-thinks them, so they have to come up with some excuse to cover their asses. So i think it’s comical when lazy, agenda-driven “journalists” anonymously interview these very same coaches as if they make the article more credible. IMO interviewing someone’s competitor about whether they are better at your job than you or whether they have some unfair advantage puts them in a situation where they cannot be honest.

    I sat next to Jamal Magloire in one class I had at UK as we both always sat in the back of the class in a small classroom. We sat in those little desks and Jamal looked downright ridiculous fitting into one of those. His arms hung to the floor and his legs extended about two desks up the aisle. One time he hadn’t been to class for awhile and he down next to me. While I was busy taking notes, he leans over to me and says in that hilarious Canadian accent, “Ay, I’ve been away for a couple classes, can I borrow your notes?” I told him I needed them for the quiz in the next class, but that I would photocopy them for him if he wanted to come by my spot later and get them. I told him my address and he told me he’d come by later that day. I didn’t tell my roommates who was coming over and so a knock came at my door. I answered the door and invited him in while I would grab the notes. He comes in ducking under the door frame and short ceiling and enters the TV room with my roomates siting there. They look over and are like “oh shit.” They continue to ask him some questions about the team, he answers for a couple minutes, and then takes the notes and leaves. He was a nice dude.

    Summer of 96 I was 14 years old. While attending Rick pitinos camp at UK, we were allowed, on a select day, to get up early and play 1 on 1 vs your choice of the players from the championship team (that were there). I was 3rd in line to play Derek Anderson. Game to 2. % scored first (he let me), then he scored to make it 1-1. Next time I touched it I couldn’t dribble, he was playing such good defense I couldn’t move. Only thing I could do was put the ball through his legs, run around him and hit a bank shot to beat him. He was mad. I guarantee Derek Anderson remembers that to this day.

    Prior to the 2005 season, a friend and I went to Georgetown College to watch Bengals training camp. It was a practice during the week so we were on the side fields, only 3 feet away from the players, separated by a slim piece of rope. Not a lot of people were there, my heavy friend and my heavy self were standing by ourselves when Justin Smith came within a foot of us to pick up a football. While we looked at this massive man we’ve only seen on tv, he stares at us and just busts up laughing. We look around to see if something funny happened around us, but we were the absolute only ones in the area. He then walked over to the rest of the D-linemen, pointed at us and said something we couldn’t understand, and then all of them started laughing at our expense as well. So we’re pissed, we paid a lot of money in gas and parking to watch guys we look up to, and they’re making fun of us. After practice we got at the end of the autograph line, and I didn’t care if it would be a case of “When Keeping It Real Goes Wrong”, I was gonna confront Justin Smith about making fun of us. When he and the rest of the d-line gets to the end where we’re at, I say “Hey Smith, I love to laugh, what’s so funny” and he and the other guys acted like they didn’t hear me, and walked by without even offering to give autographs. From that day forward, i’ve been Justin Smith’s biggest enemy, and if I ever see him on the streets shit is gonna get real.

    181 — I was at the summer camp in the summer of 95. That summer Heshimu Evans was coach of my team. We got to play against members of the team as well but we only had to score one point, we got the ball first, and they had to score three points, make-it take-it. There were long lines for many of the stars of the team, but I looked around and saw Cameron Mills with no line. I went over there and got the ball first. I was a pretty darn good shooter at 14 years-old and Cameron kind of laid off me. I kind of dribble to the right a little, went through the legs, and then drained a three-pointer to beat him. Mills didn’t look happy. I then went over to the next shortest line which was for Allen Edwards. Again, Edwards laid off me as well and I just pulled a three-pointer from the top of the key and drilled it. At that point, Mills looked over and said to Edwards, “He beat you, too! Can’t let that kid shoot.” Now at that point a couple of the other guys were being told by assistant coach Delray Brooks that I beat Edwards and Mills. I went over to try my hand at Anthony Epps. Epps, filled in with the knowledge that I beat his teammates, was not about to let me get him. He said, “Let’s see what you got” and he broke down in a very wide and serious defensive stance right up on me outside the three-point line. I couldn’t do much with the dribble but I was able to get some room to launch a three-pointer that barely missed. Epps got the rebound and proceeded to take me to the hole three straight times for the win. Later on in the camp I won the Hot Shot shooting competition — hitting eight threes in a minute — and I was given an award on the last day during a presentation. I’ll never forget going up to get my award, Jeff Sheppard said to Cameron Mills — who both were handing out awards — “Isn’t that the kid who beat you?” Mills replied, “At least he won the Hot Shot.”
