The Kentucky Wildcats could be
coming to Fifth Third Arena next season as part of the Big East/SEC challenge. Nothing is definitive and ESPN will have the final say on the matter but Mick Cronin is lobbying hard for the match-up which would instantly become one of the biggest home non conference games since Fifth Third opened.
In related news with Kentucky canceling their yearly contest with Indiana the Hoosiers are looking for games. The rumor is that UC has pursued Indiana about a potential series. Louisville is also getting after Indiana about a home and home, though not until 2013-14. No idea if that helps or hurts the Bearcats chances of getting a game with the Hoosiers for this coming year.
A couple of local recruiting updates from Mike Dyer of the Enquirer.
Butch Jones is getting an early start with the class of 2014 locally. Cage and Barker are arguably among the top 5 or so recruits in the class of 2014 in the Cincinnati area. The Gall offer seems to be a formality. Gall is getting out of Cincinnati. Florida State is purported to be in the lead for Gall at this point.
