I_medium U of L sophomore star Corey Ray has accepted an invitation to the 2015 USA Baseball Collegiate National Team and will be a member of the 24-player squad this summer.

I_medium This is pretty fantastic.

You're growing on us, Darius.

I_medium Apparently people hate Ross more than they like any other "Friends" character, which is just outrageous.

I_medium Former Cardinal and four-time All-American Kameron Chastain has been hired as assistant swim coach at U of L.

I_medium North Carolina has confirmed that they received a Notice of Allegations from the NCAA on Friday, and released the following statement on the matter:

"We take these allegations very seriously, and we will carefully evaluate them to respond within the NCAA's 90-day deadline," the statement said. "The University will publicly release the NCAA's notice as soon as possible. The notice is lengthy and must be prepared for public dissemination to ensure we protect privacy rights as required by federal and state law. When that review for redactions is complete, the University will post the notice on the Carolina Commitment website and notify the news media. When we respond to the NCAA's allegations, we will follow this same release process.

"Consistent with NCAA protocols, the University cannot comment on details of the investigation until it is completed."

I_medium Miami is meeting with .... David Beckham? ..... about building a new stadium.

I_medium The Washington Wizards could take Montrezl Harrell at pick No. 19, a spot which has a bit of dubious history in recent years.

I_medium Advanced statistics projections have Louisville pegged as a distant third behind Florida State and Clemson in the Atlantic Division heading into the 2015 season.

I_medium Best books of the Goosebumps series? I'm going:

1. The Horror at Camp Jellyjam

2. Night of the Living Dummy

3. A Night in Terror Tower

R.L. Stine jumped the shark around book 867, but I kept buying the new ones at every book sale because they looked so great on my shelf. Goosebumps books in 1994 were what baseball cards were in 1964.

I_medium The Red Rage tailgate crew has ditched their old truck with the hopes of making an even bigger splash with this bad boy.

I_medium The folks down in Miami are awfully excited about DeVante Parker after getting a chance to see him practice in a Dolphins uniform for the first time.

"He seems like a good kid with all the right makeup, all the right attitude. I watch him out there he's like a sponge, soaking up everything the coaches are giving him. I look for big things out of Mr. Parker."

Parker also made a great first impression to O.J. McDuffie, who similar to Nat Moore has a lot of credibility as a former standout wide receiver with the Fins. He raved about DeVante Parker's size and focus to the Finsiders:

"From the beginning you notice his size, he's a very big receiver. When you look at big receivers, you say no way can these guys move, there's no way they're fluid, there's no way they can stop on a dime and come out of their breaks. What I was really impressed in the beginning was how big he was, and how well he got in and out of his breaks. I also loved how attentive he was."

Dan Marino has attended and has been around the rookie camps this month and thinks very highly of DeVante Parker so far, as well. Marino told the Finsiders that Parker looks to be a playmaker for the Dolphins:

"DeVante Parker looks outstanding. He attacks the football, he gets up in the air, and you can tell he's going to be able to make plays for us. All the way around I think it's going to be an exciting year for us."

I_medium Cliff Alexander says his mom was tricked into accepting impermissible benefits.

I_medium The latest NBA mock draft from CBS Sports has Montrezl Harrell going to the Raptors at pick 20, and Terry Rozier being taken by the Golden State Warriors 10 picks later.

I_medium Ball is life for both baby Reynolds and baby Brady.

I_medium Louisville will be a holding a number of football camps in the month of June, which you can find more information about here.

I_medium And finally, I'll be on 93.9 The Ville with John Ramsey at 5 p.m. to make the big announcement I teased earlier in the week. We'll talk about it more here on the site after that.

Happy Memorial Day weekend, kids.
