It's interesting to note that the plane in question is not "Bulldog One" or whatever UGA calls its plane. Our guys are using third party equipment and flying into not as obvious airports to move more stealthy. Comedy.
(UPDATE: I normally ignore all the plane tracking stuff...except to make fun of it....and Dasher has screwed the pooch on that topic before during this coaching search. However, I have strong reason to believe that he had it locked this time. Otherwise, I wouldn't have mentioned it.)
Chip Towers and Dean Legge both wrote articles suggesting that things aren't looking very good right now because of the Memphis job opening. I agree that things are quiet, but that doesn't mean that things are going poorly. If we end up with Frank Haith, then yes. Things are crappy. If we end up with Leonard Hamilton, then that's better than what we had...but it doesn't make me run out to purchase season tickets.
(UPDATE 2: I'm not saying those are the guys we end up with. They were just names used for the purpose of making a point. Although, there were rumblings about Hamilton as a Plan B type guy yesterday. Regardless, it's not Knight.)
Overall, I agree with David Hale. Something will break very soon one way or the other.
Around the Horn:
- ESPN reports that Calipari took last night to sleep on UK's offer. Could we ever be so lucky as to have him actually stay put? Probably not. Mr. SEC has a complete update on the situation in Memphis.
- St. Louis Post wants Missouri to keep Anderson.
- The Commercial Appeal looks at where Memphis goes if Calipari goes.
