The word is that Andrew Wiggins will announce tomorrow. See our article here for analysis.
Tweet of the Morning:
Nerlens said he got so hyped during physical Bulls-Heat game that he started doing push-ups.— Thomas Beisner (@thomasbeisner) May 13, 2013
I had to laugh at this. I know how Nerlens feels. Sometimes, in physical games, I just freak out a little.
Here’s a pretty good recruiting article on Stoops vs. Joker. I may do something similar, but different, in a few days.
While the article is good, it seems to me to be slightly "agenda" driven. The author fails to point out that Stoops has a larger recruiting budget than what Joker had to work with and Stoops was given permission to pay for better assistant coaches (Hank).
Oh, Puh-leazzzze. The doubters are rampant. Like the Big Ten is such a strong conference. Big Ten arrogance is truly amazing.
Ohio kids: Commitments
We’re not done yet and they haven’t even started with commitments from Ohio kids.
While Nebraska may wind up with a higher ranked class than UK come Signing Day, it won’t be due to the number of Ohio players who sign with the Cornhuskers (Hank).
Larry Vaught thinks Wiggins will chose UK. As a Kentucky partisan, I agree with him, but the key, as always, will not boil down to logic. It will be all about comfort. Who is he the most comfortable with as a coach? Answer that question, and you probably know where he’ll go.
John Clay looks at Wiggins’ choices.
Softball will host the NCAA Tournament regionals this year. New stadium, big opportunity. Kentucky received a #12 seed in the tourney, which begins May 17th.
Vanderbilt takes the broom to the Bat Cats, who’s SEC Tournament participation is now in serious jeopardy.

Six from the SEC on Heisman watch list. Spoiler alert – none of them is from Kentucky. I know you’re shocked, but give it a few years.
"My God, a freshman!" You’ve probably seen this, but you can never see it too many times.
Andy Katz’s 3-point shot daily blog. Particularly interesting today as it covers a number of hot topics in college basketball.
I don’t see a problem with this, but I don’t see how U of L and UK could really cooperate meaningfully on it.
More on the coming rule changes to college basketball. I thought this was interesting regarding the elbow rule:
The change to the elbow rule gives officials the opportunity to adjust if the player is making a basketball play and inadvertently hits a player.
An official can call a flagrant foul 1, a flagrant foul 2, a player control foul, or if the official goes to the monitor, he can wipe the foul away if he sees no contact. In the past, once a call was made, the official couldn’t erase the call or just call a player-control foul.
Nazr Mohammed shoves LeBron James, gets the heave-ho. Not sure what bee got under Nazr’s bonnet, he normally doesn’t go full Meta World Peace like that.
Chuck Hayes to give a speech at his old high school, Modesto Christian. Those kids need to listen, is a winner.
Sergio Garcia, victim. Dude, you were owned. Period. Tiger owns all of you. You can’t haz championship because Tiger Woods says so. When he says you can, then maybe you can.
God, I hate a whiner even worse than a serial adulterer.
