    Does SI now have more than one cover per issue? I know some publications have regional covers for their preseason predictions editions, but I didn't know SI was doing it for a regular issue. If this is the case, it certainly takes something away from making the cover of SI.

    Help stamp out, eliminate, and do away with redundancy.

    I read elsewhere that the Wall cover will be in the Southeast and the Cowboy cover the rest of the nation. Which sucks for me since I live in DC and any UK fan not living in the south.
    I would say regional covers are an attempt to increase sales.

    And Tennessee just lost their biggest weapon.*

    Tyler Smith kicked off the team.

    Has Wall now crossed the line into overhyped?

    I thought his game against Georgia to be adequate at best. That's two games in a row against good defenses wherein he's struggled. Yet, to hear the announcers, Wall's been sensational.

    Meanwhile, one of Kentucky's other freshman talents, Demarcus "I'll Cheapshot Anyone I Can" Cousins, has dominated.

    Perhaps the national media and ESPN announcers (not to mention posters like... well, me) were a bit too hasty in annointing Wall the greatest ever?

    (This post is not a slam on Wall. He's very good. I just don't think he's the best player in the nation.)

    Not to make excuses, but Wall was playing with a pretty gnarly flu yesterday, that had everything to do with it. It was obvious he wasn't himself if you saw the game. But I do agree that too much has been put upon him too soon from the media, especially on a team with two other legit first-team All-American candidates who get largely ignored.

    On another note, great win by the Vols over Kansas, I was stunned so many people were pronouncing them dead for the season without Tyler Smith. Their best player, no doubt, but UT is a deep team.

    and, in addition, everybody's pretty "high" on their team.

    Nice win. I thought Florida was going to make a comeback, good to see the team kick it into gear and finish them off.

    Championships for MY teams in my lifetime:
    Cincinnati Reds - 75, 76, 90
    Chicago Blackhawks - 10, 13
    University of Kentucky - 78, 96, 98, 12
    Cincinnati Bengals - None
    Chicago Bulls - 91, 92, 93, 96, 97, 98

    What I found interesting was Calipari's ability (at least in this game) to find the right guy at the right time. Miller came up big and Calipari continually went to him for one-on-one moves late in a tight game, despite Miller's hesitation to play tough pretty much the entire season. Then, he took Miller out with a couple minutes left and brought in Dodson, who calmly hit the biggest basket of the game with that three from the wing after Cousins rebounded Patterson's free throw.

    Liggins played lights out against Georgia, but barely gets off the bench today. Ramon Harris plays even less. And two guys Calipari has dogged all year make huge plays to basically win the game.

    I don't know if it's good coaching or simply allowing his guys to play to the style they want. It does seem as if this Kentucky team has a lot of answers. Is that Calipari, Cat fans? Non-Cat fans?

    Wall, BTW, had a pretty poor game tonight, IMO, despite what his stats will say. But he got absolutely mugged three times with no call on driving lay-up attempts. I mean beat down. (And there could have been two more calls that normally go to "star players" in other leagues.) I wonder if that was simply poor official positioning, or if that's going to be the modus operandi around the league. If it's the latter, Wall won't win the National POY. He may not even be the SEC's best freshman.

    After reading about the current state of affairs at Kansas, I'm more impressed with the job Calipari has done (so far) in managing all the talent this season.

    Calipari is a SNAKE, he is a known pariah in the coaching circles and when all is said and done the Wildcats sadly will end up on probation due to Calipari.

    The most impressive thing about the win was when UK lost that 15 point lead they didn't panic or fold. They just went back to work and put the game away. Most teams as young as UK is would have folded after losing that lead. Especially on the road in a tough place like Gainesville. That's a good sign of maturity. Bledsoe and Orton appear to be nearly at full health now. That's some bad news for the rest of the SEC and country.
