Thought Of The Day – 10/5/12

As it turns out, we do take requests around here.  I didn’t even think of using “Convoy” yesterday on October 4th — 10-4 — and I always just post the first thing from my iPod anyway.  (Assuming there’s no bad language in the song.  Those songs I edit out in order to keep our PG-13 rating.)  But when someone takes the time to mention “Convoy” and there’s a video as bad as the one below, well, I gotta post that on the site.

It’ll be a short day today — lots of radio to do — but headlines and game previews will be up shortly.  And I’m sure we’ll have some stuff on our Recruiting and Overtime pages, too.  Until then… some words to live by:

 

“I says ‘Pigpen, this here’s the Rubber Duck and I’m about to put the hammer down.’”

 

CW McCall Convoy

 

Yeah.  That just happened.

News soon…

Six SEC’ers Expected To Be Drafted Into NBA

With the draft lifts finalized, the folks at DraftExpress.com have posted their latest NBA mock draft.  In it, they have six SEC players — seven if you count Enes Kanter — being selected in June’s selection process.

According to the site, two players should make pretty darn good money — going in the first 15 picks of the draft.  Two other players should get guaranteed money by being selected in the late stages of the first round.  And two others are expected to be chosen late in the second-round which is far from guaranteed money or even a guaranteed roster spot.

Their expectations:


Brandon Knight, PG, Kentucky — 1st Round, Pick 5 to Sacramento

Tobias Harris, PF, Tennessee — 1st Round, Pick 15 to Indiana

Travis Leslie, SF, Georgia — 1st Round, Pick 25 to Boston

Trey Thompkins, PF, Georgia — 1st Round, Pick 29 to San Antonio

DeAndre Liggins, PG/SG/SF, Kentucky — 2nd Round, Pick 23 (53 overall) to Orlando

Scotty Hopson, SG/SF, Tennessee — 2nd Round, Pick 24 (54 overall) to Cleveland


Kanter — the UK big man who never received NCAA clearance last year — is projeced as the #8 pick in the draft to Cleveland.

If these projections are accurate, Liggins and Hopson might be left wondering why they didn’t return to school for their senior seasons.

Vandy Finishes Out Pre-Season Schedule With Win

Vanderbilt

The Commies beat Southern Indiana 77-40 last night(http://www.tennessean.com/article/20101109/SPORTS0602/11090347/2167/Vandy+defense+sparkles+in+rout)

Jenkins had 20, Taylor 13 and Brad had 10. Apparently we got out-rebounded 23-14 in the first half but ended up winning the battle of the boards by the end of the game. Still that is a troubling stat.

I didn’t see either game nor have I seen a complete break-down of minutes played, shots taken…etc. But still I’m a little troubled with Taylor seemingly not dominating inferior opponents. And would have liked to see Brad have at least one big night from the PG spot. But without having all the facts I can’t make any determination.

I guess throw it out to everyone else. Was anyone there? What was the problem with our rebounding in the first half? How did Brad look running the point? What about Fuller? Did Jeff just not have enough minutes to score more than 13? Really, any insight from anyone in attendance would be most helpful. Gracias.
