Jaxson Hayes to announce his decision today.

It is commitment day for Jaxson Hayes, the up-and-coming prospect out of Cincinnati who received his scholarship offer from Kentucky last week. You probably remember him as the kid who hasn’t started a single game of high school basketball, but still earned a scholarship offer from John Calipari. Anyway, Hayes is committing to one of five schools — Kentucky, Texas, Butler, Georgetown or Xavier — in an announcement scheduled for 3:30 pm today. The favorite seems to be Texas, but Kentucky is Kentucky, so ya never know.

The Big Blue Madness campout looked like fun last night.

The players passed out pizza and John Calipari brought his dogs to meet Kentucky fans in Tent City. Kentucky Wildcats TV has a brief recap of the evening:

Madness tickets will be distributed tonight at 10 pm.

What material will Louisville give us today?

Each day it’s something new, so what will Rick or Tom do today?

One thing you can expect out of Louisville is the university will introduce David Padgett as its interim head coach. Our hopes and dreams of Tom Crean saving the day, are gone.

Derrick Baity cleared to play tomorrow.

The biggest football news from Thursday was that Derrick Baity is cleared to play against Eastern Michigan after sitting out the second half of the Florida game with a head injury.

Hear everything Mark Stoops had to say here:

Go Cats.
