  1. Platoon system shows advantage of tempo-free stats

    This is something I've been thinking about since I saw the pre-season all-conference and all-American teams come out and saw what is in my opinion an under-representation of UK players on these lists. So I just decided to do what is probably a too-long, very geeky article and get it out once and for all.

  2. A Tempo-Free Look at UK-Texas

    In many ways, Kentucky and Texas are mirror images of one another, with UK a little better in most areas.

    Although John Calipari discussed Texas' team speed earlier in the week, neither UK nor Texas have played fast so far. UK is averaging 65.2 possessions/game, good for 232nd nationally in adjusted tempo. Texas is playing even slower, averaging 64.4 possessions/game (263rd nationally in adjusted tempo).

    With both teams, the slow pace is largely due to their opponents ...

  4. If UK selected a new basketball coach after the season - who would you select?

    I'm going to post 9 candidates, and a 10th "Other." There are a ton of potential candidates. I am like most people, I hope this is premature and we don't have to visit this for real for a decade. But let's assume the worst, and we have to decide it now.

    Who do you go guns-a-blazing for?

    2. Karl Towns will never, ever play the 3. That needs to be let go right now. He is a big, with great post moves who can shoot. Sam Perkins is actually not the worst comparison for
