John Clay talks about Andrew Harrison's big day. If I were the twins, I would ignore all this NBA crap and play basketball. They'll be able to figure out at the end of the year if another season at Kentucky is best or not. For now, just play hard and let the chips fall where they may.

Talk about your all-time short honeymoons.
Whither Oregon? In the crapper lately, it seems.
