Underwater Throggle Thrower of the Day Wants Afternoon Notes and Podcast

Not even the beautiful scenery of the coral reefs in the Cayman Islands could stop this guy from throwing his three goggles. Now that’s fanhood.

— After Cal announced last night that Drake would be one of the coaches for the Alumni game, the internet has been buzzing with speculation as to who the other could would be. The most popular guess so far has been the King himself, LeBron James. People are reportedly reaching out to LeBron to see if he’s able to come…can you imagine? “Hey Julius, meet Anthony, Rajon, Michael, John, and DeMarcus. Oh yeah, I think you know these guys…Drake and LeBron, this is Julius Randle.”

Just in case someone cancels at the last minute, I’m bringing my sneakers and whistle with me. Layup lines for everyone!

— Over at, Adam Zagoria interviewed a “high-major Division 1 assistant” that said most are considering Andrew Wiggins a “done deal” to Kentucky. As long as “done deal” doesn’t have to do with horse farms and Billy Donovan, I’m all for it.

Former basketball coach Tom Penders has feelings about Billy Gillispie and he’s not afraid to share them:

Let it out, Tom, let it out.

— Rashawn will be by later with a preview of tomorrow’s game against Kent State, but in the meantime, a programming reminder: the game will not be televised on Time/Warner in Lexington, so unless you have Dish, DirectTV, or ESPN 3 online, you may be out of luck, which is more incentive to actually go. Don’t worry, the rain is supposed to clear out by game time.

— Hey Pete Thamel, did you see this article about Duke’s Lance Thomas buying $100,000 worth of jewelry back in 2010 and failing to pay for it? No? Thought so.

— Here’s today’s podcast, in which Matt showed off some of his rapping skills. Don’t worry, you can fast forward through that part.

    It isn’t three goggles, it’s the SCUBA hand signal for “OK”

    Ah, the Cayman Islands, where we went for our honeymoon. The ocean outside our hotel was so calm it was like a swimming pool, the water so crystal clear you could see a grain of sand on your foot. The different varieties of coral and fish made for tremendous snorkeling. Good memories.
    I’m having trouble getting to yesterday’s podcast. This one doesn’t seem to work either.

    If nothing happens to dUKe, then the NCAA will have proven that they are 100% corrupt. Time to ditch the NCAA.

    Don’t rush to judgment just yet with Lance Thomas… he comes from a wealthy family and lets be real, no NBA agent would have loaned him anything his senior year. Probably took out a legitimate loan and just failed to pay it back. That’s a personal issue, not a university one.

    Penders isn’t exactly acting in a classy manner now either. Not defending BCG at all, but piling on makes everyone look petty right now. The guy has major problems and will get what he deserves. Not real sure why that’s so funny.

    Duhon’s mom got a 6 figure job she had no qualifications for when her son committed to Duke. K is the phoniest coach to ever grace the planet. Roy Williams is a close 2nd.

    #4, not rushing to judgment. If this had been a UK player and had just come out it would be in the ESPN scrawl at the bottom of the screen by now. Everyone would be writing about it with their inuendo and BS. His family is wealthy and his mom works at an auto plant? If his family is wealthy why the loan for so much? And where did he come up with 30k for the down payment? A lot of weird stuff with this one. If my parents had a ton of money I know I would not have gotten 30k from them for jewelry but that is just the way my family is. Don’t know anything about his family.

    Maybe Corey Maggette or one of his financiers loaned him the money.

    I’m guessing the other coach is Willie Nelson. Drake and Willie will cover the entire fan base. WILLIE!!

    “Three goggling” has become painfully passe. Let’s move on to fresher pastures. Go Big Blue.
