–Here’s a little bit about Nerlens Noel and his team taking home the championship at the Peach Jam. In case you hadn’t heard, Noel has officially filed his paperwork to be considered a beast.

–The former high school football coach from Louisville who was found not guilty in the heat-related death of one of his players in August 2008 has written a book about the experience.

–You probably know that Syracuse is thought to be the major competition for Kentucky in the race for big man Dajuan Coleman’s services. One thing you might not know, though, is that Cuse guard Brandon Triche is a former teammate of Coleman’s, but he says he’s not putting any pressure on Coleman to commit to the Orange. I think that’s the right thing to do.

–Jodie Meeks is using his locked out time to finish his degree at Kentucky, and lacks only a few classes to get there. He said it was something he planned to do even if the lockout didn’t occur, as he always wanted to finish his education despite leaving school after three years for the NBA. Apparently, people have been a little surprised to have him as a classmate at UK this summer.

– suggests that maybe seeing how other large venues manage their traffic could help the Kentucky Speedway avoid a repeat of the disaster of last weekend. That seems like it might work out better than the ‘let’s just see what happens’ strategy they apparently went with this time around, but hey, I’m just a blogger.

    KY Speedway owner Smith will now go back to Gov. Beshear and ask him to spend more tax payers dollars on the roads and intersections leading to the track. The state spent millions of dollars already and Smith wants more money right after he said I-71 is a lousy piece of interstate. Some Fed money was spent but the state carries the largest burden. The state nor the feds can spend tax payers dollars to enhance ones personal property, I think were at the point where the state needs to say no more Mr. Smith. The road in front of the track is overkill 364 days a year.

    Does anyone know if a player leaves early for the NBA, but then comes back at a later date and finishes their degree does it retroactively help the schools APR?? I know that the school doesn’t get penalized by the student leaving early as long as they leave in good academic standing, but I was just wondering if players coming back and graduating had any effect.

    Saying “no” simply because the dude is a d-bag or played the system would be like cutting off one’s nose to spite one’s face. If state money makes it easier to host more and bigger events, it brings in more tax dollars.
