Tiger Woods and Billy Gillispie quick hitters: News of the Day

Calipari's Maker's Mark Bottle. That's my kind of finish line...
Tiger's taking top billing on every channel just like he has anytime he has come out of rehab in the last 3 months. Here in "Possibility City" the Kentucky Derby and all it's festivities are getting ready to kick off. This weekend marks one that is most overlooked, the Derby Festival Classic. While this game doesn't have that McDonald's All-American appeal, or Jordan Classic ring, it does get an occasional B grade recruit. The game tips off tomorrow in Freedom Hall with the 2-on-2, dunk contest, and 3 point shooting competition underway tonight at Bellarmine's Knights Hall, oh yeah Tiger:
  • Cal's on the recruiting trail this week, as yesterday marked the first day of the spring contact period. He visited CJ Leslie (#14) in North Carolina and is making a late push in Virginia for Doron Lamb (#21).
  • You can put your resume to rest. The DePaul coaching job was filled. As I realize many of you submitted youre resume's to their website, they only chose one, Oliver Purnell. But don't get too down on yourself. While I realize a recession may or may not still be going on, coaches do get fired, so there's always a chance next year - or in DePaul's case, maybe mid-season  - that the job is open again.
  • Billy Clyde is still on the market and the Oregon coaching job is still "the market." Thus, the two met yesterday for a chance to see if when BCG has Nike's on, if he runs a team into the ground faster.

  1. I would love to vacate a bottle of Maker's Mark this weekend.
