* "Like I said, we do dumb things."
That's Coach Cal, expressing shock over the Patterson-Cousins-Harrellson stomping on the Cardinal logo. Right, because denigrating the logo of a rival isn't forseeable when holding an open practice on their court. But as we learned from the Camby incident, plausible deniability is Cal's MO.
* "I think it's a great job. I really do. But there's a lot of great jobs out there. There's a lot of great jobs out there."
That's Tom Jurich on the UofL position. Far be it from me to give Jurich advice on how to make a coaching pitch, but I hope he sells us a little harder than this. Doesn't exactly make you want to break out in the UofL fight song, does it?
* "They lost their dearly beloved Steve Kragthorpe. CBS covers the situation here, but the most interesting part may be the quote that “(He) just didn’t seem like the right fit from day one.” Even when firing coaches, little brother has to find ways to imitate us. Cute."
That's Will Lentz at KSR, bringing the UK-UL rivalry to inane new lows. Laying claim to a line of generic AD-speak as a point of pride? Wow...just...wow.
