Kentucky Sports Radio

University of Kentucky Basketball, Football, and Recruiting news brought to you in the most ridiculous manner possible.

Saturday Morning (b)Links (182)

 

 

Good morning, guys. Sorry I’m in pajamas, but I just got off the PJ. I slept well after that basketball win, how about you? We have a fun day ahead of us with more basketball rehash and a football game this evening, and always, I know, you’ll read my posts. Watching, waiting, commentating. Let’s get to the links.

 

UK won. You already know though.

Kyle Wilter’s hot shooting night came directly after a challenge from Calipari. Don’t let him get in his zone.

Everything seems on track for Karl Towns  to commit to Kentucky on December 4th, according to Next Cats. Calipari has already arguably got the Dream Team meets the Supreme Team for 2013; will Towns be the first domino to fall for 2014?

-Despite Joker’s firing two weeks ago, the seniors weren’t ready to see him leave Commonwealth and pulled for him to coach the last two games. They’re all in this together.

-Gotta have some Cliffs Notes for tonight’s football game? Mark Story’s got ya.

-In case you missed it last night, the NCAA declared Shabazz Muhammad eligible yesterday. However, freedom ain’t free especially round his way; Muhammad will have to repay $1,600 in impermissible benefits. Let the Enes Kanter comparisons begin.

The UK Hoops team plays today against High Point, looking to get over a nasty loss to Baylor and Brittney Griner. On to the next one.

-On a sadder note, the women’s soccer team lost to No. 5/6 UCLA in the second round of the NCAA tournament, ending one of the best seasons in program history (14-7-1 and 2-1-1 against top fifteen teams). It was something unpredictable, but in the end it’s right. I hope they had the time of their lives.

    What I would like for the NCAA to explain is why UCLA is punished for actions that would have benefitted either Duke or UNC, since that is where Muhammed went in violation of the rules. Again, Duke and UNC get a pass while another school is punished. We would have probably faced a similar punishment if they had found Nerlens accepted impermissible benefits for a visit to Georgetown or another school that was recruiting him.

    What are the odds that the NCAA would have ruled the same way if Bazz had gone to UK? Much lower, I would wager. I read in another article that there was a conversation overheard on a plane by one of UCLA’s attorneys that had something to do with this. Apparently the lead investigator’s boyfriend was sitting in front of the attorney and was on the phone with the investigator discussing the case.

    If / when Cal leaves at some point in future…UK needs to write a check to Orlando Antigua and make him head coach! That guy is amazing.

    1) The punishment relates to the player, and further, the NCAA told people they were looking into Bazz while he was still being recruited. They knew what they were getting.

    3) If he came to UK, most likely permanently ineligible for accepting pay. Best case scenario would’ve been a longer suspension.

    4) He does seem like the ideal pick as a recruiter, but I’d love for him to have some head coaching experience. Would suck to lose him for that period, though.

    Have we ever been more set up to get a kid than Towns? He honestly reminds me more of a Tim Duncan type, because he’s not that athletic. It’s Duncan with a splash of stretch four in his game.

    Surely, Kristen, you mean

    Calipari has already arguably got the Dream Team meets the Supreme Team for 2013; will Towns be the first DOMINICANO to fall for 2014?

    in my opinion the NCAA is just like politians, they do what they want to do and don’t really
    go by the rules. Someone needs to shut the NCAA down
