Greg Gilbert representing from Mt. Everest base camp.

I_medium Highly sought-after grad transfer Mark Alstork (Wright State) is in Louisville today for the last of his official visits.

I, for one, would greatly enjoy adding him to the fold for next season.

I_medium The first of what I assume will be several preseason cover appearances for Lamar Jackson.

I_medium The 2017 NBA Draft hasn't even happened yet, sure, but that isn't stopping Draft Express from forecasting what the 2018 draft might look like. They have V.J. King going in the first round with the 29th overall pick.

I_medium The high-profile leaders of the ACC are all working towards a common goal.

I_medium PT gon' PT.

I_medium Louisville senior tennis player Sean Donohue has been named All-Ohio Valley Region.

I_medium The Minnesota Vikings have cut former U of L defensive lineman B.J. Dubose.

I_medium Mangok workin'.

I_medium Jeff Greer takes a look at the Louisville basketball recruiting big board for the class of 2018.

I_medium I don't think Baylor should be playing football this season ... or maybe ever.

More details of the latest part of this awful, awful saga are here.

I_medium A reporter asked Ole Miss football coach Hugh Freeze a pretty straightforward question about the NCAA investigation into his program and he fled the scene.

I_medium Keeping quality assistants for a long period of time is a rarity in college baseball, but that's exactly what Dan McDonnell has been able to do with pitching coach Roger Williams.

I_mediumTNIAAM asks readers which team will be Syracuse's toughest football opponent in 2017.

I_medium Cool stuff is happening at Jim Patterson this weekend.

I_medium Beth Mowins will become the first woman to call a nationally televised NFL game this season.

I_medium Kirk Herbstreit said in Louisville today that Lee Corso recently signed a 2-year extension on his College GameDay contract.

I_medium Mike Zimmer, like everyone else, loves Teddy Bridgewater.

While the Vikings opted not to pick up Bridgewater's fifth-year option, a loophole in the Collective Bargaining Agreement will allow them to "toll" his contract, carrying it over through 2018 at his current rate of pay. If he is able to play, the Vikings will have to make a decision between going back to Bridgewater or signing Bradford long term.

At the owners meetings this Spring, Zimmer was asked about the possibility of trading his young quarterback if he recovers.

"I want Teddy, I don't want him going somewhere else," the Vikings' coach replied.

If you love someone, you believe in them. And Mike Zimmer believes in Teddy Bridgewater.

I_medium This is pretty cool, and Carmichael's has apparently been flooded with orders today.

I_medium Even without Donovan Mitchell, Louisville is No. 7 in Gary Parrish's updated rankings for CBS.

I_medium Duke is no superteam, but they could still be better in 2017-18 than they ended up being this past season.

I_medium Ginuwine is coming to the State Fair for a free concert. I hope he plays Pony. He'll probably play Pony.

I_medium The greatest of all time.

I_medium FSU's baseball coach says the Seminoles have their work cut out for them this weekend against Louisville.
