News and commentary from around the Big Blue Internet. Kentucky loses at LSU, travels to Missouri on Saturday. Kentucky tennis gets #3 national recruiting class. Atlanta clobbered by ice and snow. More.
Welcome to Ice Station
Zebra Atlanta. What a mess it is down there.
Also, just a quick comment. Gary Parrish is trolling the Big Blue Nation with a recent post over on CBS ("top 25 and one"). Myself, I refuse to give him the click. I recommend you do the same. The tweet was classic trolling, and I'm not feeding the trolls today.
Tweet of the Morning:
Recruiting trip for the ages with @CoachSchlarman. Stranded in Birmingham since yesterday morning. Finally open roads and heading to KY.— Neal Brown (@UKCoachBrown) January 29, 2014
Glad you made it, coach.
Kentucky has offered Javarious Davis of Jacksonville, Florida. He's kind of a typical UK running back recruit, small and fast. Via Hank
Kentucky workout video featured on Coachingsearch.com. Via Hank
Whither A.J. Stamps? He's a JUCO not listed on Rivals as an early entrollee, or even a commitment? Via Hank.
John Calipari's comments on the game, via Anthony Wireman.
Kyle Tucker has a recap of last night's loss.
Guy Ramsey on the game last night, for Cat Scratches.
Well, no need to stay around and answer inane questions from... practically nobody, I guess:
Although Kentucky's flight back to Lexington wasn't scheduled until Wednesday, coach John Calipari couldn't get out of the arena fast enough. Barely 15 minutes after the game ended, he had already answered a few questions from reporters and hustled his team onto the bus.
Yeah, this tells you quite a bit about last night's game.
And The Valley Shook gives us the LSU point of view.

Talk about recruiting trips for the ages. Relive Ohio St. offensive coordinator Tom Herman's nightmare on I-285 yesterday in Atlanta, complete with pictures and funny Twitter tweets.
What are the chances of NCAA football players forming and being recognized as a union? Not very good:
"I would be very, very surprised if they won," said Ronald G. Ehrenberg, a professor of industrial and labor relations and economics at Cornell University. "If they do win, it would potentially lead to an explosion of changes in higher education."
I will go further than that. They will not win, not in forming a union, anyway. But they could win without winning, if you take my meaning.
Atlanta is a nightmare of ice and snow today, and has caused North Carolina major problems.
We sure could have used this guy last night.
