Kentucky and Calipari break NBA Draft first-round record

Uber-salesman John Calipari has managed to put Kentucky in the NBA Draft history book by having five of his players getting drafted in the first round of the NBA Draft in 2010. This breaks the record of four players in the first-round of a particular draft held by UConn, North Carolina and the despicable lowlifes (Dookies) ;-)

Daniel Orton sealed the deal at #29. This is of course a bittersweet moment for the Kentucky fans - imagine what type of a super-team they would have had in 2010-2011 if these five stayed! No chance of a Dookie repeat!

Oklahoma is Pacific coast beach-front now

It looks like the "suits" running the conferences have gone completely mad. Now the Pac-10 appears to want to assimilate every team east of New York. Nothing says Pacific Coast Conference like Oklahoma and Lubbock, Texas. Sorry son, you won't play at Pauly Pavilion this year - you get Lubbock instead. And you don't even get Bob Knight there!

The news of a 16-team mega Pac-10 conference are making the rounds on the internets and this is just insane. It looks like the Big 12 teams have given up on beating Kansas so they are all trying to bolt out for other conferences.

On the plus side, it could make for some interesting "culture wars" match-ups, Berkeley vs Stillwater, Eugene vs Lubbock, Palo Alto vs Norman.

Surely, this is all about the student-athletes, this is not professional sports. Not professional sports when it comes to paying the student-athletes without whom there wouldn't be NCAA sports. But everybody else seems to get paid and paid well - from the work of the student-athletes.

Farewell Coach Wooden

At the age of 99, John Wooden has passed away. ESPN has a lot of stories covering the life of Coach Wooden. Words are really not enough, never enough to describe his impact in the lives of many people, on and off the court. His words and his work will remain with us for the many centuries to come.
