I agree with Pat Forde on the poor student athlete. All one has to do is take a look at the link for the NEW MULTI-MILLION DOLLAR Wildcat COAL Lounge. You think the physics scholarship STUDENT will ever see the inside of that place?
1. John Calipari and Billy Donovan talked to ESPN.com’s Andy Katz about ways to better compensate college athletes.
2. Mark Bradley of The AJC likes Georgia and LSU to meet in Atlanta.
3. Georgia is still looking into the AAU scandal that could leave a Bulldog football player and a Bulldog basketball player facing eligibility issues.
4. Take a virtual tour of the future Wildcat Coal Lodge (which is the home of UK’s basketball team).
5. Incoming South Carolina freshman linebacker Edward Muldrow was arrested last week and is currently suspended from the team. (Bottom of the page.)
6. Juco transfer Maurice Couch will be incredibly important figure at defensive tackle for Tennessee.
7. ESPN.com’s Pat Forde doesn’t buy the myth of the poor, exploited college athlete. (And neither do we, for that matter.)
