Kentucky coach John Calipari wished he had a foreign trip this summer to prepare for what could be an unprecedented season with a seven-player recruiting class -- so far -- that rivals any collected recently.
But the Wildcats went three years ago, which is within the once-every-four-years allowable time period. So, just in time, here comes the NCAA board of directors with a chance to provide more practice time for the Wildcats when they need it most.The Wildcats and Spartans have their share of early-season games that will have March significance. Kentucky will host Louisville and Boise State and go to North Carolina -- all NCAA teams last season -- while playing NIT teams Baylor (in Dallas) and Providence (in Brooklyn, N.Y.) as well as Michigan State in the third edition of the Champions Classic (in Chicago).

Of course that's better than playing, say, Wofford or something.

Izzo warned that losing five seconds isn't going to make much of a difference. There will still be bad shots with fewer seconds on the shot clock. Calipari said the shot clock won't change the pace of the game or style of playing unless officials call more fouls.
"I'm going to tell my guys to be aggressive on the verge of fouling," said Calipari. "Hipchecking is a foul. It is in the NBA. We have to watch all the post-mugging that goes on."The type of Defense being played nowadays is ridiculous. If you hand check a guy and are allowed to change his direction with a foul being called, that's just crazy. Not to mention the amount of contact allowed under the basket.Sorry I hijacked your thread, just had to rant for a second.
