Coach Cal Ate Doughnuts This Morning

Keeping you abreast of every single move of UK’s possible, could be, might be, has to be next basketball coach is my very raison d’etre. Thus I provide you this link so you will know what Coach Cal had for breakfast and where and how long he was there and what he talked about and […]

Those Memphis Super Recruits

It is now being reported that all those high profile ballers that currently make up the nation’s “best” recruiting class have an out. Apparently all have a provision in their Letters of Intent which releases them if Calipari takes another job. As of 11:32 on Monday, I have no more word than anybody else on […]

The Rick’s Last Talk . . . For This Season

Actually Rick Pitino was quite upbeat in his last press conference of the season Tuesday following U of L’s disappointing loss to Michigan State in the Elite Eight. To me, his most telling comment — maybe because it affirms my opinion of this teamĀ  — is that this year’s edition of the Cards was “one […]

The World Wide Wes Factor

I’m advised that prep hoops recruiting’s most notorious power broker, William Wesley a/k/a World Wide Wes, dubbed a “goodwill ambassador for Memphis (State) basketball” by John Calipari, has hired a realtor to find a home in the Lexington area. (That’s WWWes to the right in the middle of the infamous Pistons/ Pacers brouhaha a few […]

Final Four Bound

U of L’s women did what the men could not. They got ‘er done in the Elite Eight, bashing top-seeded Maryland by 17. Jeff Walz’s Cards played great D, were focused, played tough and essentially had the Terps measured the whole second half. U of L plays the winner of the Oklahoma/ Purdue game in […]

That Guitar Hero Ad

Roy Williams, Coach K, Bobby Knight and The Rick shill for a video game. In their underpants. You asked for it you got it: – Seedy K

Coach Cal a Done Deal, But There’s More

I am told by some folks who should know that John Calipari will in fact leave Memphis State to become the next head coach at the University of Kentucky. Not really a scoop there, but there’s more. As anybody with any sense knows, there’s a rivalry already between Calipari and The Rick, which is somewhere […]

The Morning After

Okay, it’s actually the afternoon after. This is a little late. For a number of reasons. One, our blogging servers were down. Two, I had an extended piece due on the Cards’ weekend and, so garbled were my thoughts and my ability to express them, that I had to rewrite that twice. It will be […]

Now There Are 4

Carolina won easily. As expected. So they play Villanova, my favorite team for the rest of this year. UConn plays Michigan State, my second favorite team for the rest of the year. – Seedy K

Now There Are 5

And one of them is not the University of Louisville Cardinals who were double-digit bested by Michigan State in the Elite Eight. Kerthunk. I’ve got a story to write for the print edition of LEO. I’ll check back later, probably in the morning, with some observations in the aftermath. – Seedy K
