BBL: As Selection Sunday looms, more praise for Cats

Thayer Evans may have his doubts about this Kentucky basketball team, but Shane Ryan of Bill Simmons’ Grantland and Luke Winn,’s college basketball numbers expert, are both bullish on the Cats. After all, John Calipari’s club is 27-1 and 13-0 in the SEC as we wind down to the final week of the regular season. Selection Sunday is two weeks from this Sunday.

This must be one strange morning because not only am I linking to KSR, I’m actually promoting one of its posts.A reader did some research on what has happened to the players Billy Gillispie was going to bring to Lexington. As laid out in black-and-white it’s a frightening look at what might have happened to Kentucky basketball, as compared to what is actually happening now.

OK, I think I’ve italicized enough words for one morning. On to the links.

    KSR has matured. KSR is like an 18 years old son now. Still not trusted with the keys to the liquor cabinet, but they can be trusted not to destroy the house if you leave for the weekend. I like having you both, and A Sea of Blue, in my hood. We can co-exist in BBN. :)
