SEC Media Day: news and notes

Boogiewoogie makes his next comeback tomorrow. He is tweeting in Minnesota or Chicago or wherever he has ventured to up north that he is returning shortly...exhale now... Then the site visits can explode back to normal when all the women can come back onto the site and swoon over him and his manly good looks and curves.

Until then, you're stuck with me once again. The good news is that you're also stuck with some news:

- In the annual SEC Media Day polls, the press picked Kentucky to finish in 5th place in the SEC East. That's behind Georgia, Florida, South Carolina, Tennessee and only ahead of lowly Vandy. They picked Kentucky to finish 4th last year ahead of Tennessee, I guess Joker lost a fan. Kentucky did receive two votes for first place as did Ole Miss in the West - silly press people.

- John Calipari is in Las Vegas. If you were to guess which of the following would you think he was doing
A) Playing  role in the next CSI season as a mob boss with lots of 'connections'
B) Making a cameo in the next Hangover movie
C) Putting all his money on Kentucky to win the national championship
D) Placing 1/2 his new bonus on Louisville to fire Rick Pitino after another abysmal year.
E) Watching Shabazz Muhammad play
I don't really know the answer, but my guess is either D or E.

- Shabazz Muhammed told the Las Vegas Sun (not related to Rupert Murdoch's 'The Sun' magazine) that he exchanges text messages with former Kentucky point guard, John Wall nearly every day. I would guess that could be an advantage the Cats have in his recruitment.

Stick around folks, we'll have pictures of Boogie's sunburned belly later this weekend and you know you don't want to miss that!
