Ben Roberts: “Trevor Lacey’s father tells Rivals that he will not take another trip to either NC State or UConn. Kansas was the final stop.“

Kristen Pflum: “Can’t believe I’m sitting in a 30 min session to learn how to answer a phone. Btw, Cutler looks confused.”

Oscar Combs: “UT friend just texted me copy of UT-UK upper level basketball game ticket at UT last season with $5 price stamped on it. My friend is not going to like this comment. Next time you try to tell me UT hoops are important, show me something besides $5 ticket stub. On a more somber note, it’s sad that UK’s second best basketball rivalry is going on a prolonged vacation with Vols’ probation. Of course UK’s been responsible for the football portion of non-rivalry since 1984. There’s always hope. Tee needs to make something happen.“

Big Blue nation’s one stop shop for all of the most interesting and humorous tweets from around BBN! By the way, Rot in hell Bobby Knight…

UK Athletics: “Freshman Doron Lamb has decided to return to UK for his sophomore season & will not declare for the NBA Draft.”

Joker Phillips: “Very disappointed that Dave Ulinski had to give up football. He’s a fine young man and will work with the team as a student strength coach.”

Tee martin: “”It was character that got us out of bed, commitment that moved us into action, and discipline that enabled us to follow through””

Rich Brooks: “Had dinner tonight with Vince Dooley , Johnny Majors, and Charlie Trippy. Lots of good stories. Golf tomorrow at Athens CC.”

Aaron Boyd: “I’m not a star somebody lied.”

Mitch Barnhart: “The Univ. of Kentucky, our student-athletes & their families take great offense to the blatantly erroneous comments made by Bob Knight. Academic performance has always been a priority at UK. It’s unfortunate that, although every starter from the 2010 season finished the spring semester in good academic standing, these myths exist. Our men’s basketball team’s APR score reflects our attention to academic progress . . . and our student-athletes take great pride in representing the University of Kentucky on and off the floor.”

John Calipari: “In Boston at Dolce Vita on Hanover Street. WOW. (Franco says hello to Luther Deaton). Cannoli’s to finish it off. A must stop in Boston.”

Jarrod Polson: “hahaaaaa. just saw Miami game highlights. Heat makin people look stupid!!!”

Doron Lamb: “Long day of class, now about to get some food with Richy Pacheco”

Twany Beckham: “Bout to get this wkout in with Bknight……”

Mike Gilchrist: “Man High School Basketball is really over!!!!”

Kyle Wiltjer: “just realized doing homework while the playoffs are on is against my morals… guess ill just have to wait til tmaro to do this paper…”

Stacey Poole: “Just touchdown in Duval, lol im in here!”

Demarcus Cousins: “All respect Coach Knight but I went to my spring classes at UK and finished out strong good gpa even after declaring for draft. Hope you correct your statement!”

Oscar Combs: “Legend has it Bob Knight hated media so bad he wouldn’t let IU build bathroom for reporters, made them get in line with fans at latrine. Don’t know whether that’s fact or myth, but I do know there was no reporters’ restroom at IU’s Assembly Hall in the 1980s and 1990s. Remember great Cawood Ledford having to beg a guy to let him break line so he could make it back to courtside in time for second half.”

Dick Weiss: “bob knight rips uk, claims five one and dones who started in tournament had not been to class all semester. hope he has proof of that one.”

Gregg Doyel: “Bob Knight is a bad guy. Great coach. Valued education. Didn’t cheat. But a bad guy.”

Kentucky Sports report: “ESPN obviously not “getting it” if they allow false statements to be issued by their representatives and pretend its an “opinion.””

SportsByBrooks: “If Knight isn’t at ESPN, comments aren’t news. But he is. And they are. ESPN knows that, not sure if Knight does.”

Dan Wolken: “Kentucky’s persecution complex is stunning. Not sure why you think what Bob Knight said matters at all. If Knight “apologies,” it accomplishes what? About the same as he accomplished by saying something stupid. Both amount to nothing. And please don’t pretend like guys who were at UK for one year were there for any reason but to get to the NBA. Just don’t. Turning millionaires into martyrs over this issue is stupid. Don’t go down that road.”

Rob Pedigo: “I like turtles”

Brett Dawson: “Backup linebacker Jewell Ratliff becomes the second Kentucky football player dismissed this spring for violation of team rules.”

Brian Snow: “Is Carlos Boozer contracted to say “Give me that (ish)” on every rebound?”

Anthony Wireman: “Travis Ford was in Morehead last night to watch Adam Wing play pick-up; he told Wing to come to OSU, according to a good source.”

Aaron Kall: “Marquis Teague and Anthony Davis have bonded on the all-star circuit and plan to room together at UK”

Jody Demling: “Expect to hear that Rick Pitino is in North Carolina on Tuesday, talking with another assistant coach candidate and seeing Rodney Purvis.”

Ben Roberts: “A very early ESPN Bracketology has UK as a No. 1 seed playing its first two games in the Yum! Center”

Larry Vaught: “Music City Bowl will be Dec. 30 at 6:40 EST on ESPN. Hope Cats are at least in contention for this bowl. Beats Compass Bowl by a lot”

Kentucky Athletics: “Admission and parking for the Blue/White Game are free on a first-come, first-served basis. Kickoff is at 3 p.m. at Commonwealth Stadium.”

Team Cousins: “Barnstable Brown party releases guest list, including DeMarcus Cousins, Patrick Patterson & John Calipari”
