— What is my favorite story of the day? I love the statement from Rich Brooks tweeking Steve Kragthorpe. I thought the Louisville coach’s statement after the game Saturday that they were going to “go after” Trevard Lindley was funny. I didnt find it disrespectful because he talked about how much he liked Lindley, but I love that Brooks responded by saying that if coaches wanted to “pound their chest” and go after Trevard, he would be all for it. Kragthorpe should show a little less machismo when his team has lost.
— UK-Alabama is at 12:20 on the SEC Regional Network, which means the game is on the channel the old Raycom games would be for you and Andre Ware will call it. JOY!
— Larry Vaught says that he hears Stacey Poole will decide for UK within 48 hours. I have talked to UK people who feel confident but have not said it is certain. Either way, we will know within 48 hours and UK looks like the smartest bet.
— Rupp Arena gets an NCAA 1st-2nd round in 2013. That is cool news for Lexington, but better news is that Louisville gets one for 2012. Why? Because Kentucky can get put there and the Big Blue Nation can pull a “Duke in Greensboro” on the site.
