Sprints Has No Plans to Move to Memphis // 05.05.10

'And when we said postponed, we meant we might play them at that time anyway'
The Georgia Tech-Alabama "postponement" gets more and more bizarre.

Both schools had agreed to postpone the home-and-home series, scheduled at Alabama in 2013 and Bobby Dodd Stadium in 2014. However, as is common with scheduling, scenarios could shift that could bring the games back on their original dates.

The reason being given for the game maybe being back on is that Tech and Alabama might not be able to line up different opponents. Well, then -- why did you postpone the games in the first place?

Or maybe they can play in 2012
Alabama is looking for another neutral site game for that year.

John Calipari and Kentucky are working on a contract that would make the highest paid coach in NCAA basketball the most highest paid coach in NCAA basketball. UK AD Mitch Barnhart:

We have begun initial discussions on restructuring his contract so that he's the coach at Kentucky until he retires.

Or until he doesn't make the NCAAs one year. Whichever comes first.
