    Maybe it’s because it’s August and there isn’t much else to talk about, and maybe it’s because anything written about Kentucky on the internet is sure to garner clicks, but it seems as if Kentucky going undefeated in 2013-2014 has become a thing that everyone is talking about.

    A lot of people spend a lot of money and a lot of time playing a lot of golf, but there aren’t many folks out there that can claim that they’ve hit a double eagle or have a hole-in-one on their resume. There are fewer that have done both with notching a PGA Tour card,…

    For some players the process of going through the NCAA’s Eligibility Center can be more nerve-wracking than anticipated. Three things can happen: a player can be cleared, meaning that they can proceed with preparations for the upcoming season without any concern.

    Mark Emmert

    Montana v Syracuse

    Syracuse will likely enter the 2013-2014 season somewhere around the top 10 of most preseason polls, which is a fair assessment. Losing Michael Carter-Williams, Brandon Triche and James Southerland hurts, but there is talent coming back — CJ Fair, the uber-promising Jerami Grant, the reportedly-in-shape DaJuan Coleman — and even more joining the program —…
