— It’s the day before a game day, so UK invited a group of some of the finest media members in all of Lexington to the Joe Craft Center to listen to Calipari rant before Tuesday’s practice.  Today’s themes: Julius Mays’ leadership, Nerlens Noel’s knee, and the NCAA Tournament…

On Julius Mays… “Thank goodness he is on our team,” Cal said of the importance of Mays’ leadership.  Mays is able to teach, lead and guide the way Cal does as UK’s coach, but is able to do it from another perspective, as a teammate.  Calipari said Mays made a statement to the team about what drives him to succeed. “I’m my mom’s only son and I refuse to fail,” Mays told his teammates.

On Nerlens Noel… Cal said Nerlens Noel has a date set up for surgery, but he wasn’t able to provide the exact date at Tuesday’s press conference.  He did say Noel is in a great frame of mind heading into what will be a long and challenging road to recovery. He also mentioned that Noel’s mother visited Lexington last weekend to check up on her baby boy.

On the NCAA Tournament… Calipari believes Kentucky has the talent to advance in the NCAA Tournament, not just settle for a first round appearance. He mocked last week’s media talk of “UK has to beat Missouri to get in” and how it is now “They beat Missouri but still have to prove themselves.”  He mentioned that bell curve again.

—  Jarrod Polson said Calipari was all over the players in yesterday’s practice to make sure they don’t look past Mississippi State.  Because State is turrible.

—  Kentucky opened as an 18.5-point favorite versus Mississippi State. Will they cover?

—  Also, according to offshore betting websites, Kentucky is currently listed at +12500 (125/1) to win the NCAA championship.  A bet for Kentucky to just make the field of 68 pays out at -150.

— And on this morning’s radio show, Matt and Ryan talk about fat kids getting letters, Michael Bolton’s girlfriends, SeekingArrangements.com, and a little basketball. Listen online at TalkRadio1080.com.

    If someone hypothetically…I mean, I’m not interested in it myself, but my friend wants to know…how can you place wagers on the ncaa tourney (for entertainment purposes only, of course)? And how would you..I mean he, collect if he happened to win and have lots of fun?

    Before the season in Vegas I was smart enough to bet $20 on UK to win the title, and got 5-1 odds. What a difference.

    An offshore betting site I saw (Bovada) has UK at 75/1 to win the championship…I also wonder where you saw 250/1 and a sure-fire bet in making the field?

    I agree with 14…not sure what you’re getting paid to promote these damn prints..but it isn’t enough…I hate these things..and will punch anyone in the face if I see one hanging in their house…simply because theyve been on KSR for so long…enough already
