    Prediction (might have made it somewhere else in this thread. Forgive me if I did):

    The New Jersey Nets land the number one overall pick and select John Wall. The Nets then turn around and sign LeBron James when he becomes a free agent.

    I honestly believe the whole LeBron-UK connection is nothing more than networking, and it wouldn't surprise me if the two end up playing on the same team. After last night, I have to say the thought of those two together would be downright scary.

    As to the OTL Report, didn't he "run off" five or six guys for real? It sucks that that happens for the young men (is patently unfair, in fact), but, 1) it's not exactly newsworthy, as most coaches do it their first year or two, and, 2) it's the truth.

    No reason to rail against ESPN here, IMO. It's what happened.

    Usually the worst team in the NBA doesn't get the 1st pick.

    KNOXVILLE, Tenn. -- Four Tennessee basketball players, including starting senior forward Tyler Smith, were charged with gun possession and other counts after a Friday traffic stop.

    The Knoxville Police Department said Smith, 23, junior point guard Melvin Goins, 22, junior center Brian Williams, 22, and sophomore guard Cameron Tatum, 21, were arrested during a traffic stop for speeding near Tennessee's campus.

    According to a police report, officers smelled marijuana coming from the car and found a handgun with an altered serial number, a bag of marijuana and an open container of alcohol. Tatum was driving.

    Officers could not determine whether any of the players were under the influence of marijuana, though the strong odor suggested marijuana had recently been smoked in the car, the police report said.

    Tatum was charged with unlawful possession of a firearm and having an open container of alcohol. Smith was charged with unlawful possession of a firearm and possession of a firearm with an altered serial number, which is a felony. Goins and Williams both face gun and drug possession charges.

    Tennessee coach Bruce Pearl said in a statement that the team takes such matters seriously.

    "We are still gathering information. Once the appropriate authorities have provided us with all of the facts, we will act accordingly," Pearl said in the statement.

    It was not immediately clear if any of the players had attorneys.

    The Volunteers won at Memphis 66-59 on Saturday afternoon and face Charlotte in Knoxville on Wednesday.

    Couldn't have happened to a nicer group of guys. Do you think they were all wearing their headbands when it went down?

    Careful, now. We got some of them, too.

    If it wasn't for working midnights, I wouldn't be opposed to making the trip from Parkersburg to Lexington and buying some scalped tickets to tomorrow's game at Rupp just to see the emotion. Tomorrow is going to be a game for the ages.

    How many "Ka-ren Sy-pher" chants and blonde wigs will we see tomorrow?

    your right...it's a lottery. Rick Pitino would still be the head coach of Boston if they would have gotten Tim Duncan. Boston had the highest chance to get Duncan and San Antonio had the lowest chance. We know how that worked out.
    Not this year...maybe a Wild Card

    UT's men's football and basketball teams seem to operate in Old West mode. It'll be interesting to see if anything is actually done to Tyler Smith.
