How can we live in the state of Kentucky and not get every single Kentucky game on TV live? I don't understand this at all! The game yesterday I had to watch online, as did everyone else I know in eastern Kentucky who doesn't have a dish. It is things like this that could set off an inner state revolution in a heart beat!!! We as fans should not settle for service like this, and should rise up against the mighty cable providers and demand that they show every Kentucky game live or face the wrath of the BIG BLUE ARMY!!!

Well today the NCAA loses what little bit of integrity they had left by letting Kansas stand out freshman Josh Selby play after sitting the first few games in this young college basketball season, and Enes Kanter still sitting on the sidelines with no decision in sight on his NCAA review/appeal! It's appalling the way this whole situation has been handled by the all mighty NCAA. They found that Kanter took 33,000 and some change more than what was allowed, and they think he is not an amateur. While Josh Selby took impermissible benefits from a known agent, and his punishment is to sit out a few games and pay back some money and all is good? Did I mention the way he is paying back the money? Oh, they are allowing him to use money from his scholarship that supposed to help buy books and whatever else he needs for an EDUCATION!!! While Kanter and his parents have told the NCAA they would pay back whatever amount that they needed to out of their own pocket! Just doesn't seem right what is going on here. They say he's not an amateur, but yet he turned down a multi-million dollar contract to play overseas to come to America to play and get an EDUCATION!!! and they punish him for that? Give me a break, there is no rhyme or reason to what the NCAA does or decides (hello Mr. Cam Newton) and innocent kids pay the price! SAD!!! GC

It's been a while since I have gotten to post on here, and a lot has happened! Terrence Jones has become one of the best players in America just like I thought he would. And he has done this while playing out of position!!! The only thing holding this Kentucky team back is the lack of a quality big man down low!!! But Jorts is rapidly filling that void with some quality minutes which is great to see from him. The NCAA continues to ignore the trouble down in Tennessee, which amazes me because if that had been done at Kentucky they would waste no time handing down punishment!! In my time away we also got to see one of the most annoying players in all of college basket ball in Tyler Hansbroughs little bro! I know I'm not alone when I say I would have loved to have smacked the taste out of that kids mouth. Nothing worse than someone thinking they are better than what they really are! Well, that's all I have time for right now but keep checking back for my ridiculous thoughts on the sports we all love!!! GC
