Tuesday Morning Update

Spanning the globe on a Tuesday morning …

Kentucky coach John Calipari is looking for more emotion from his team as the unranked Wildcats seek to upset No. 16 Ole Miss tonight at Tad Smith.

The tip is at 8, and the game will be televised by ESPN.

Speaking of rankings, Michigan grabbed the top spot in the AP poll, a first for the Wolverines since 1992. ESPN lists the Big 10 No. 1 in its conference power rankings. The SEC is No. 7, slightly ahead of the Missouri Valley Conference. …

On the subject of rankings, Florida and Alabama are 1 and 2 in ESPN’s list of recruiting classes. Ole Miss is No. 13, which makes the Rebels No. 6 in the SEC behind Texas A&M, LSU and Georgia in addition to Florida and Alabama. Signing Day, on Feb. 6, is fast approaching.

The Ole Miss ranking will surge upward if Robert Nkemdiche signs, something that has been long been rumored and expected and appears more likely after Nkemdiche cancels his LSU visit.

Lake City, offensive lineman Laremy Tunsil told some media he was “confused” after his Ole Miss visit, which was the objective, I’m sure, by his hosts, who are working hard to get in late with the nation’s top OL prospect. It appears Hugh Freeze and his staff have done just that. Alabama and Georgia remain strong contenders as well. …

    I believe!!! Ole MI$$ will and should romp “the cheatin’ Calipari’s” tonight. Ole MI$$ should able to get points in the paint, as Kentucky moves out to stop the 3. Ole MI$$ wins by 14. This year’s Kentucky team is immature and Ole MI$$ has experience. Look for the NCAA to put the Ole Mi$$ scandal on the front burner around May. Until then, the information will seep out between the unraveling threads of the cloak of coverup.

    after seeing the video, I changed my mind…Ole MI$$ will get beat by a score of 87 to 53…speaking of videos have you seen those Ole MI$$ recruits dancing on a bar looking like drunk fish? Wow how bad is that? what kinda program is Freeze running down there? Oh well, it’s time for a skull $%&^ing…Kentucky style.This wll be fun to watch..and if you think this is bad, wait til the ncaa finishes with Ole MI$$ football, later this year.
