The Morning Mix

Apr 30, 2012, 8:00 AM EDT

- Your must-read story of the day comes from Glen Logan of A Sea of Blue. It’s about education and sports. Make sure you read the whole thing and all the links. You can thank me later

- Former-Arizona guard Josiah Turner was arrested over the weekend on suspicion of driving under the influence. Somebody needs to give this kid a wake-up call. He was suspended no less than two times during his freshman season at Arizona, didn’t play the last month of the season, and was essentially not asked back. The sad thing is, somebody will take a chance on this kid. I just hope that person is willing to go the extra mile to ensure that this kid cleans his act up

- Speaking of Arizona, incoming freshman Gabe York survived a serious car wreck last month. The Arizona Daily Star has the details

- Larry Brown is already causing a stir at SMU. He cut three players, including the starting point guard. Gregg Doyel has seen enough

- Mike Huguenin put together a complete list  of the coaching carousel

- Tony Barbee dismissed two players from the Auburn program over the weekend

- The judge is still trying to determine whether or not to dismiss the defamation suit against Syracuse coach Jim Boeheim

- Maryland guard Pe’Shon Howard, who was sidelined much of his sophomore season with injuries, was charged with disorderly conduct in College Park over the weekend

- Speaking of Maryland, it gets worse. According to InsideMDsports.com, sophomore scoring machine Terrell Stoglin has changed his mid and has decided to enter the NBA Draft

- John Calipari called out NCAA President Mark Emmert on his “one and done” stance

- Duke-transfer Mike Gbinjie has decided to attend Syracuse. Really? Like he’s actually going to get more playing time there?

- Arizona State-transfer Kyle Cain has decided to enroll at UNC-Greensboro

- Wisconsin has given head coach Bo Ryan a contract extension through the 2017 season

- Tennessee-transfer Renaldo “Swiperboy” Woolridge, has decided to attend Southern California

- Terrence Jones continues to crush the public relations industry. Unfortunately, he’s not very good at baseball

- The WAC as we know it is coming to an end. San Jose State and Utah State are headed to the Mountain West Conference. Oh, Louisiana tech and UT-San Antonia are headed to C-USA. This is me waving goodbye to the WAC……

- Speaking of Utah State, it looks like the Aggies are getting some new threads

- You all probably forgot about the point-shaving allegations that were made against San Diego. Well, the main player involved, Brandon Johnson, stated that he never actually threw a game

- Another great Kentucky championship video
