Sunday Morning Links


Good morning, friends. To everyone returning to school /work tomorrow, I’m sorry. Fortunately, you still have one more day to enjoy the break. Unfortunately, it won’t feature any Kentucky basketball. Life isn’t always fair. Some links:


– ran a nice piece about Willie Cauley-Stein’s emergence as a leader for the #1 Wildcats. Worth noting: in a season where Willie is earning Naismith Trophy hype, he’s second on the team in scoring, rebounding, and blocks. This group’s pretty good.


Here we have an Indianapolis writer speculating over who will make the Final Four, which will be held in the city. Spoiler: he likes Kentucky’s chances. The best part: he says that Indiana fans “rather shake hands with skunk” than see UK win another title, but the Final Four is worth attending to witness a “historical coronation.” It’s a fun year, folks.


– The 11th ranked Kentucky Wildcat hoops team will face Ole Miss today at 2 PM. Here’s a brief review of the game and a source for some live updates. You go girls.


– Finally, what better way to close out the break than to laugh at UNC? Here’s a recent report about the academic scandal that is STILL being investigated by the NCAA. They’re taking their sweet time, no?

    the tardheel investigation has been going on in some way or another now for about 3 years. does anyone really think unc will suffer any substantial penalties from the ncaa? unc is offering up some sacrificial lambs, with nice parting gifts no doubt, and eventually may have some scholly restrictions for a couple of years. what should be the death penalty will wind up being a whipping with grandma’s pillow paddle.

    “A small number of people” involved – they deceive only themselves. The article points out that 2300 students took the courses. Everyone on campus must have known what those courses required.
    Administrators , professors , advisors, students- and athletes. And the athletics department and coaches didn’t know ? Come on.

    The investigation is way longer than it needs to be for basketball sanctions. They got Derick Rose for much less. All they need is speculation that one basketball player each year received unearned grades in order to make them ineligible and strip the wins and take down the banners. Does not matter if it was only a few bad people in the admin or whether regular students were involved. I suspect NCAA hypocracy knows no bounds and they will find a loophole to let them off with a slap.

    Here’s my question. If an Indiana fan shakes hands with a skunk in December do they all rush the floor?

    I expect UNC to get about as many penalties as UCLA has gotten even though EVERBODY knows their championships were purchased. Look no further than Walton’s confession and the “Wizard’s” win loss percentage before Sam Gilbert’s mob money bought him teams. The NCAA is happy to penalize UK for a single Emory instance that wasn’t even all that clear cut but for some reason UNC, Duke and UCLA are untouchable with tons of evidence.
