  2. Billy Donovan is enjoying the ride

    Eamonn Brennan

    MEMPHIS, Tenn. -- On Oct. 17, Billy Donovan arrived at his 18th SEC media day -- an event expressly designed for coaches and players to talk about their teams -- not knowing what to say. After three straight Elite Eight appearances, and with a vet...

    Eamonn Brennan

    The bubble does not rest. Here's what's happening in the SEC: With Arkansas eliminated by South Carolina on Thursday, the Razorbacks are stuck in front of the TV like the rest of us, waiting to see if the bubble shakes out in their favor. Some ear...

  4. Weekend Homework: Kentuckys next step

    Eamonn Brennan

    How impatient is John Calipari? On Monday, ahead of a trip to LSU, he admitted to reporters (in an otherwise characteristically positive news conference) that he just wished his young team was "further along." You know what happened next: The Wil...

  5. Why is Kentucky's attendance declining?

    Eamonn Brennan

    In 2008-09, Kentucky men's basketball coach Billy Gillispie led the Wildcats to a 22-14 record and an appearance in the NIT. Kentucky fans were furious. In March of 2009, Gillispie was fired; that afternoon, local media chased him around as he preten...

  6. Boise State delayed on trip to Kentucky

    Eamonn Brennan

    Playing Kentucky at Kentucky is no small ask. The Wildcats, even in their current developing form, are a very good, very difficult team to play anywhere. Doing so in Rupp Arena, in front of 20,000 screaming blue people, is like playing NBA2K14 on the...

  7. Delta bumps passengers in favor of Gators

    Eamonn Brennan

    How important is a college basketball game? More important than whatever 50 or so Gainesville Regional Airport passengers were planning on doing Sunday afternoon. At least, that was the message conveyed at the Delta Air Lines terminal in Gainesvill...

  8. UK's, Duke's close calls show their flaws

    Eamonn Brennan

    Before we go any further, let's get one very cliche thing straight: Wins are wins. In three months, none of us will much remember, or much care, that Kentucky spent most of Feast Week Monday wobbling behind Cleveland State in Rupp Arena. It won't m...

  9. Scouting the Champions: UK vs. MSU

    Eamonn Brennan

    Much has been made of the impact of the Champions Classic, of the "importance" -- for lack of a better term -- of four teams this good, this talented, and this high-profile meeting so early in the college hoops calendar. And rightfully so: Tuesday ni...

  10. Young's wild, counterproductive shot

    Eamonn Brennan

    A funny thing happened in Lexington, Ky., these last few months. To most of the outside world, Julius Randle, the gem of coach John Calipari's probably-best-ever recruiting class, has been the chief Wildcat to watch. He was named preseason SEC player...

  11. Season of Change: Back to dribble-drive

    Eamonn Brennan

    Now that you know what you need to watch in every conference in the country in 2013-14, we turn our attention to the theme of change -- from coaching swaps to player development to good old-fashioned rules, and anywhere in between. We call it "Season...

  13. Impressions: SEC media day 2

    Eamonn Brennan

    BIRMINGHAM, Ala. -- I like my team. That's the first line of any coach's typical media day script. On Thursday, Florida coach Billy Donovan tossed that script into the shredder. It's not that Donovan went rogue. Nor was he particularly negative. O...

  14. Impressions: SEC media day 1

    Eamonn Brennan

    BIRMINGHAM, Ala. -- For a conference accustomed to hosting thousands of media for its football events, and for a blueblood program obsessively tracked by one of the largest hordes in the country, the first day of the SEC's 2013 media days almost felt...

  15. Even John Calipari's smack is on message

    Eamonn Brennan

    It's a pretty obvious thing to say, isn't it? That a Champions Classic game between two of the best four teams in the country -- a burly, veteran Michigan State team on the one hand, and a so-talented-I'm-already-running-out-of-adjectives Kentucky on...

  16. UF's Chris Walker stuck in academic limbo

    Eamonn Brennan

    In early July, when second-hand reports said Florida prospect Chris Walker would be academically ineligible for the 2013-14 season, the record was corrected rather quickly: ESPN's Jeff Goodman reported that Walker hadn't heard one way or the other on...
