ESPN has two pieces of note this morning. First, the NCAA alleges that Derrick Rose might not have taken his own SAT (if one reads between the lines). It sounds like the only punishment being discussed is vacating Rose’s Final Four, but even that would suck for Memphis, a program whose best days are behind it. Unlike with Kelvin Sampson, no penalties (even if the allegations are proven true) would follow Calipari to UK. This will obviously be high profile, but I wouldn’t be surprised if it ultimately comes to nothing. Yes, I still wish Calipari had come to NC State.
On the shocking front, mad bomber Terrence Oglesby will leave Clemson to play professionally in Europe. Oglesby did seem like something of a head case, but the Tigers will now be without two of their three leading scores from last season. This development likely means more playing time for Clemson’s other goofy looking white guy, Tanner Smith.
