It’s our pre-pre NBA draft edition of the ballcast, and in getting ready for next week, I’m solo today, so prepare accordingly.
Today, who’s draft stock is rising at the right time, Sean Woods stands by last year’s “Gonzaga of the South” comment, and why no matter how much I love college basketball, the two areas where it can’t stand up to hockey.
It’s spring, which means some spring cleaning at OVC Ball. As we work our way though the spring / summer, we’re working on cleaning out our photo archives.
The Jacksonville Jaguars wrapped up their final practice of the offseason yesterday. But former Murray State player didn’t work out with the team, after being released before practice began. The Jaguars announced yesterday they released defensive end Austen Lane.

I also discuss my concerns with Morehead State next season, and I make fun of my guest for waking up at 4 a.m. in the morning to do a radio show, even though he works in television.
When Sean Woods entered the Morehead State program this past summer, he did so with a bang. He envisioned the Eagles as the “Gonzaga of the South” and said Murray State better be worried about Morehead State.
Some, including myself, wrote it off mostly as a new coach trying to generate a little press with his new team. Little did I know, that was just the beginning.
We’ve known for weeks that the the football future of Jacksonville State QB Coty Blanchard rested with the MLB draft. Now that the draft is over, what does that future hold?
That’s…not completely clear yet.
Former UT Martin guard B.J. McLaughlin will not return to UT Martin. The decision is hardly a surprise, as McLaughlin was suspended for this upcoming season.
For the second year in a row, the OVC will split up half a million dollars among the conference’s twelve schools as part of their “Basketball Enrichment Plan.” And this year, the largest share is heading the the OVC Champions, Belmont.
